    Does anyone have install instructions for the @RCIoffroad heavy duty steps they could share? My steps showed up late this week and when I unpacked everything today, they weren’t included. I checked their site and didn’t find them there either.

    I can contact RCI on Monday, but would prefer to get these on while I have time today. I can probably figure it out but would prefer to get it right the first time through.

    I know it’s a long shot, but thought it was worth asking. Thanks.

    I was wandering the same thing. I'm not in a hurry, since my truck is in the body shop. Maybe
    @T-Rex266 could post a picture of how it is mounted for us.

    Its self explanatory once you get under there and look around. They dont come with instructions. You will want to buy some washers because the flanges on the bolts are too small and wont cover the large slots in the mounting locations. Pissed me off when i did mine and they said thats just how it is...no washers included but i say they are definitely needed. You do not want your steps only hanging on by half a head of some of the bolts..
    Unless they have changed something since i bought mine, which i doubt they have.

    So, we may need longer hardware and washers. I haven't looked at that yet

    My truck came with all but 4 of the bolts already screwed into the locations. Maybe they ran out at the factory that day on my truck.. I used the factory bolts plus I had to go buy 4 more which of course do not match but oh well. Yeah I said a couple cuss words that day but I love those high quality steps!

    Copy. Thanks for the pics @T-Rex266. @Tacogrande thanks for the heads up on hardware. I seem to be missing 1 factory bolt on each side.

    Appreciate the help y’all.

    I like to wipe on a touch of grease on the bolts for rust protection.
