    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Westin HDX Drop Steps fitting all two-door and four-door 2007 and up JKs. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of these steps which is a very simple one-out-of-three-wrench install. Anybody can do this in their driveway in about an hour, but we'll talk more about the installation in just a second. We're also going to talk through the construction and a few of the features of these steps. A side step will make it a lot easier for you and your passengers to get out of your lifted or even stock height JK. And this side step has a little bit of a different look than some of the others on the market. This integrates a piece that goes all the way from wheel well to wheel well that helps to cover up the slightly unfinished look of the drilled out pinch seam on your factory JK, but it also integrates these steps with a non-slip stepping pad. So this is really a dual purpose piece, but one of those purposes is not protection. This is not going to be a piece that you can take off-road, drop the Jeep off of a ledge onto this rocker, and have it protect the Jeep. This will crush under the weight of the vehicle. This is absolutely a step and a bit of a visual mod to cover that pinch seam but it is not protection, and that's okay. This isn't priced like protection. This is priced like a step. So if you're looking for a very clean step that covers that pinch seam that is a little bit different from some of the other steps that are on the market that isn't a very old-school round tubular side step, I think that this is going to be a pretty nice option. This is going to be a steel side step that's covered in a textured black powder coat finish, and as I said before, this does a really nice job of integrating the step with the piece that's going to cover up that pinch seam that a lot of us don't like to see. Right out of the factory, the pinch seam, in my opinion, looks a little bit unfinished. It does have a few holes drilled in it and just doesn't give a very finished look to the side of the Jeep. So this upper section here will do a nice job of covering that pinch seam area while the steps are very cleanly integrated into that top piece. The way that these mount on the Jeep make them a very solid connection for a step but again, these aren't going to offer protection. And they do have a removable riveted stepping pad, and the rivets that are in there do give you a lot of grip. So even if you're getting into the Jeep on a day where your shoes are muddy or rainy, or maybe there's some snow, you're still going to get a good grip. This stepping pad is actually a separate piece from the rest of the step over top. It's bolted on, and it is removable. So if you wanted to, you could get a little bit creative and possibly color-match that or color-change it if you wanted a bit of a different look. As I said before, this is a one-out-of-three-wrench install that you can get done in your driveway in right about an hour. Westin includes both steps and all of the mounting hardware that you need. Now, those mounting brackets are going to attach to that pinch seam and also the underside of the tub regardless of what year or what body style of Jeep you have. These are going to bolt right up without the need to drill or cut anything. The first step of the install is actually attaching those brackets to the pinch seam in the underside of the tub, and then it's a simple matter of bolting your step onto that new bracket. All you'll need is your traditional hand tools, and you can get this job done. As I said, these aren't going to offer a lot of off-road protection, but that's okay because these are priced like a step and not like armor. Armor is usually going to be more expensive because it is going to be bulkier, beefier, stronger, and if it does have a step built into it, it's not usually as useful of a step as this is. This is gonna give you a very useful step, a

    Handy Drop Steps. Made with clean, chiseled, faceted look, the Westin HDX Textured Black Side Steps give an exciting new look to your 2007-2018 Wrangler at the same time as they provide a firm foothold for mounting or dismounting from your Jeep. Available in either a 2-door or a 4-door format, these steps are lowered several inches below the sill level to give you a more natural step height with a suspension lift installed or for greater security when using them above irregular, rough ground surfaces. These are machined one-piece constructions with stamped tread pattern on the step surfaces for a good grip.

    All-Steel Build. Made to match up to Westin’s HDX bumpers for a unified, powerful appearance, the Westin HDX Drop Steps are made from tough steel with a powder-coat finish. The die stamped step plates are removable for easier cleaning. The design is made to fit close to the rocker panels for both appearance and a tight, stable fitment. The steps provide light protection to the rocker panels and the lower edge of the doors.

    Bolt-On Fit. The installation of Westin’s HDX Drop Steps is made easier by a bolt-on approach that is drill-free and cutting free. A mount kit and hardware, plus instructions, comes with each pair of drop steps.

    3-Year Warranty. Like all of Westin’s powder-coated components, the HDX Textured Black Drop Steps carry a 3 year limited warranty from the manufacturer.

    Application. These Textured Black Westin HDX Drop Steps are designed to fit all 2007-2018 Jeep Wranglers. Please select the proper fitment from the options above to indicate if you need the 2-Door or 4-Door option.

    Can you tell me the drop height of the step?

    BrendaH

    • The Westin HDX Drop Steps will sit 6" below the body of the Wrangler (body to top of step) or approximately 6" below the pinch weld (pinch welt to bottom of step)

    How do these mount? Can they be used along with something like the rugged ridge rocker protectors? Thanks.

    CraigV

    • Thank you for your question! These would mount to the pinch weld and would be compatible with a rocker guard that was mounted to the side of the Jeep with 3M tape like the one listed below. https://www.extremeterrain.com/rr-smooth-rocker-armor-jku-1165112.html

      I love the step sides they look great on the Jeep. However, you have six support peices for each step, two of which has to be put together to make one of the three supports. It would be much easier if they numbered these and did not leave it up to matching a picture to the actual part. This and the fact you had to match screws and bolts the same way caused it to take much longer than it should have.

      Wonderful Steps!

      Installation was easy once you understand how it all fits together. Very much so recomment laying out all the pieces before you start. They look wonderful and function great! And an added bonus, they work well to keep mud from the sides - i did not have mud flaps installed - did so afterwards!

      Good

      Installation was pretty straight-forward after I figured out what I was looking at. Deciphering the instructions was the hardest part. I used colored pencils to color-code the items in the drawing, which helped. Also, the M6 washers they provided were too small, so I had to replace them with wider diameter ones. But I like the angled look these steps provide.

      Just what I was looking gor

      Great look. Functional and with addition of grab bars, getting in and out of my 4 door Rubicon is so easy. The design also hides the pinch seam the rock guards covered. Not the easiest to install. Some of the bolts are difficult to get too. At least no drilling!! Set aside 3 hours and have a helper. I agree with one of the other reviews that the brackets should be numbered. All in all a nice addition.

      Great, But Do A Little Prep Work Before Install!

      These are beautiful looking, solid steps! Getting a lot of compliments on them and stares while driving out and about! Tip: as some of the other reviews state, the instructions/diagrams that come with the steps are not the best. Set aside some time the day before (about an hour) and lay out all the pieces. Review/study the instructions/diagrams, label all the bracket pieces by front passenger side, rear driver side, etc. (I like using those office supply, color coded dots), and loosely bolt everything together. If you take the time to do that, you will be golden: by pre-assembling everything the day before, it took me about 15 - 20 minutes per side to match everything to the factory holes and tighten everything in place. I could easily see this taking an entire afternoon if you laid everything out and tried to figure everything out "as you go" due to the poor instructions.

      Once I got the directions figured out, it was easy to get done. However, it took hours to complete. Granted, I did the installation alone and on flat ground, and did not use a lift or a helper to complete it. Regardless, I am beyond satisfied!

      These look great. Steps are located in the correct positions in relation to the doors. They were easy to install if you lay all the parts out first. Take the time to lay them out and you should be fine. Instructions are minimal. DO NOT LOOSE ANY PARTS, THERE ARE NO EXTRAS!!!! ( I put mine in zip locked bags and labeled them)

      Prefect fit easy to install. Only concern is the aft mounts still have give when weight is put on the step. I weigh around 180 and you can feel the step move. Not much but still a concern. The mounts could be beefier. Love the way they look verses my old ones. Overall very happy.

      Please update the illustrations

      The instructions were fine however the illustrations were terrible. Get away from hand illustrations where one can't tell the differences in each of the brackets. Please take pictures of the actual brackets. It would also help if the brackets were labeled. Agree with other review where the washers were too small. This was more than 1 hour of installation time.
