Filled with water and rusted through

The rubberized step portion of the nerf bar isn't sealed properly. As a result, water got in both of my nerf bars and it took them a single year to completely rust through. Let alone all the extra gasoline I must have spent hauling around all that water. I've removed these nerf bars completely and am now far less likely to buy anything from Smittybilt ever again.

Good stuff

I've never been a fan of "nerf"-style step bars but my wife is 5'03 and needed something. We had Carr Hoops on our TJ but felt they would look bad on a 4dr JKU. I reluctantly bought these and once they were on I really liked them. Very, very easy to install. I did it alone in less than 20 minutes and the textured finish looks very sharp.

I have never been a fan of "nerf" style steps but we bought a brand new 2014 JKU and my 5'03 wife needed something for a step. I previously used Carr Hoops on my TJ but I thought 4 would look stupid on a JKU so I reluctantly bought these bars. I was really impressed with the textured finish and I have to admit they look good on the Jeep. Plus they were super easy to install. Did it by myself in about 15 minutes for both sides. Hopefully they are durable.

okay for the money

Mine came some shipping damage and one of the integral nuts was not welded inside. The problems were on the driver side. Since i didnt feel like removing the passenger side i just let itgo

Great Product. I am very impressed.

Great Price. Easy to install although a bit tight on my 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Again the price is amazing for what you get.

Will these side bars provide the same or better body protection as the stock Rubicon rock rail that is currently on my 2013 Unlimited Rubicon?

Asked by Keith from Tennessee on

Hi Keith the Smittybilt Sure Step 3 inch Diameter Side Bars, Black Powdercoat will stick out a littke further then the rock rails you have. Also these are more or less a step and not protection tho they do offer a little of that. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. Thanks,
