While the factory options for the Wrangler are great, adding custom side steps to the Wrangler JL or JK is a very popular aftermarket mod for enthusiasts. Also known as nerf bars, running boards, side bars, and a number of other terms, these components are an easy-to-install upgrade with a lot of benefits. In addition to looking awesome, they make it less difficult to enter your Jeep while also protecting your vehicle’s body from off-road hazards.
If you’ve got a raised Jeep or are planning on adding a lift kit, don’t underestimate how the change in height will affect getting in and out. Especially for those lifting their Wrangler by two inches or more, side steps become a virtual necessity for safe and easy ingress and egress. In slick conditions or bad weather, you’ll be happy to have the extra help getting into your JK or JL.
Additionally, many types of side steps and nerf bars are specifically designed to protect the vulnerable undersides of your Jeep. Even careful drivers can be caught in a situation off-road where tough terrain or a large unseen rock could do some serious damage to your rig. This is especially true for 4-door JK or JL Wranglers, who can use nerf bars to help compensate for their somewhat compensated breakover angle.
