Side steps are a popular way to enhance the style and capability of your Jeep Gladiator. Along with running boards and nerf bars, they protect the vulnerable sides of your pickup while giving it a custom look.
Side steps made of heavy-duty steel or aluminum are best for off-roaders. If you’re outfitting your Gladiator with lots of armor, protecting the rockers from getting roughed up on the trail is a crucial part of the process.
They offer style too. Many enthusiasts find that the sides of their rig look too bare without a set of nerf bars or side steps. Giving your Gladiator a pair will make it look more rugged and help it stand out from the pack. To complete the off-road aesthetic, look into getting some aftermarket bumpers as well.
For those with lifted Gladiators, side steps offer a much easier way to enter and exit the cabin. If you have little ones or older folks getting in and out as well, the extra leg up is always helpful. There are different types of nerf bars with options for one large step or drop-down steps in the front and back.
Installation is very simple and requires no drilling. Whether you choose a set from Mopar or another aftermarket brand, all hardware is included and will bolt-on to the factory locations.
