Add another bracket (total of four), and the step bumper needs to have a slight bend in it. The 2022 gladiator has four brackets on the stock side rails, not three, and the body is curved not straight. Other than that it was easy to install & looks good..
I dont know what I was thinking ...I didn't think they would be that HEAVY!! So with a little help, ingenuity and grit, I was able to install them!!! They look amazing!! Just what my Gladiator needed!!!
The directions are pretty good but what they fail to mention is that you can reuse the main bolts that that came with the original rocker panels and they work better. I installed these by myself but recommend finding a buddy to help. Make sure you install these “evenly spaced” where the step attached to the undercarriage. If you start with A and work towards C there is a slight offset that that makes it difficult to to make the holes align. I suggest you DO NOT tighten everything up until ALL holes are aligned. Then, synch them up.
Once complete, they work GREAT! There is NO wiggle movement. They also look Awesome!
Well packaged and easy to install I Love the product the material is heavy duty and fit perfectly fine; My Gladiator look hot with them. Is a small gap but that is not a problem with me.
Bars arrived very well packaged. Great finish on the bars. Easy installation in factory mounts. No drilling required. The only issues I had were instructions were a bit confusing and I added a stainless steel washer to the 6 wafer head bolts that mount the brackets behind the pinch rail. The bolt almost falls thru the slot in the bracket. There is a slight taper in the gap off the pinch rail but not enough to be a dealbreaker. All in all a good addition.
