Review & Install Video
Hey, I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and this is my detailed review and breakdown of the Barricade 6-inch Oval Bent Side Step Bars fitting your 2015 through current F-150 Super Cab. So in this video I'm gonna talk about who these are gonna appeal to, the construction, and materials that went into this kit, what you should expect to be spending, and then last but not least, we're gonna hit the install, which right off the bat I'm gonna be giving these a pretty easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and you should have this kit on your truck in about one hour, tops. So this kit's gonna appeal to the F-150 owner that's looking to pick up, hands down, one of the largest and more aggressive-looking side step bars on the market today. So no matter if your F-150 was optioned with the side step or if it didn't come with them from the factory, these are gonna be great for the F-150 owner that's looking to make it that much more easier getting in and out of your truck.
Now I will add that sometimes these are gonna be advertised as being side protection for your truck, but I wouldn't rely on them heavily. And if you're gonna be doing some heaving off-roading, I would make sure you look into a set of fender flares as they're gonna give you a little bit more protection than these would. Now in terms of driving around locally, these guys will give you a little bit of protection on the sides of your truck, but that's gonna be mainly in terms of preventing any kinda door dings that you might come across.
So in terms of the construction and materials here, we're gonna be looking at a six-inch in diameter stainless steel tubing, which is also gonna feature bent ends, which is something that I personally like in comparison to more of a Nerf bar or a square setup, as these are gonna complement the sides of your truck. So additionally we're gonna see that these are gonna feature a massive raised ABS material step pad, which is gonna keep your foot on the bar where it belongs, getting in and out of your truck in any kind of weather conditions. So last but not least, Barricade is then gonna finish these off in a high polish shine, which in my opinion is gonna match some of the OE trim on your F-150 pretty well. But if you're gonna be looking for something a little bit more sleek or subtle-looking, we've got a ton of different options on site. I personally like black, but a little bit of chrome on my truck I can honestly go either way.
So in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending right around 350 bucks for this kit, which in my opinion, is a steal. You're gonna be getting some stainless steel tubing here with one of the largest step pads available on the market today, which again is gonna make it considerably easier getting in and out of your truck, no matter the weather conditions. So in terms of the installation here, just like I had said in the beginning of the video, you're gonna be looking at an incredibly easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and about an hour to get these on to your truck. Now the installation alone is gonna be a massive selling point for me as there's really no reason why I would ever wanna drill or modify my truck in any way, shape, or form, and these are going to install utilizing your factory mounts which could be found under your interior rocker panel.
All right, so just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts, if you're the 2015 through current F-150 Super Cab owner and you're looking to incorporate some of, hands down, the largest step pads on the market available today for your F-150, I would definitely suggest checking out this kit for your truck. So that's my quick review and breakdown of the Barricade 6-inch Oval Bent Side Step Bars fitting your 2015 through current F-150 Super Cab, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
