Project Update #1 “Jeep Wrangler JK” – The Jeep Prepper Must Have Product for Wrangler JK
Over the last weekend we bought a set of Smittybilt Atlas Side Door Steps for our 2008 Jeep Wrangler JK. If you are a true Jeeper having the top down is an essential part of our everyday lives, especially in the summertime!
Taking the tops off can be a pain and even worse for those who are still using their heavy hard tops.
This Mod allows you to have extra mobility and height when you are dealing with taking your top off or putting some gear on a roof rack. The steps are heavy duty and the nicest ones I have seen. They install on the door hinges and are easy to install. They come with replacement hinge bolts and everything else you need to install them. They work on both front and rear door hinges.
One things is when you install them you will notice that the doors can be misaligned and may require some adjustment. What we did was to remove two bolts at a time and made sure we put in the new bolts to hold the door in place.Then tighten them all down evenly when ready.
When flipped down they look cool, and have a good grip to them with the serrated edge. I weight about 190 lbs and stood on them easily and bounced up and down with no movement on them. This is a great product and was easy to install. We plan on getting a new set for the rear doors. Just because they look cool.
These are some other features of these cool door steps:
- Constructed of 1/8″ steel. Durable black powdercoated body with clear zinc step
- 350 lbs. load limit
- Built in bottle opener
- Non-slip serrated step design
RECOMMENDED for JEEP PREPPERS – when prepping your Jeep for disaster you may install a roof rack and these door steps make it easy to get things up on to the roof. Also it makes taking off a soft top easy as well.
