All of the hardware used is counter sunk so the bolts are flush when installed providing a super slick look. The only thing you need to do is paint them and install. These are designed to fit the 2018 and up Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited.
One of the best features of the Motobilt Crusher Series of rockers with steps is their high clearance step. Most steps are great to help you get in and out of the Jeep but they hang down well below the body line of the Jeep and are the first thing to hang up on off road. The nerf bar types of step are typically made from tubing no thicker than your factory exhaust pipe and once they hit a tree, rock, or the dirt they crumple. The Motobilt Crusher Rocker Guards with steps are made from 3/16" steel plate and are tucked up high to keep them away from obstacles. This high clearance design keeps your Jeep from snagging on obstacles and moving on down the trail. If you do manage to hit them on the trail there is no worry as they are built to take the abuse and keep your Jeep safe from any obstacle.
