Review & Install Video
Hey, guys. Alex from AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review and install of the Raptor Series 4-inch Magnum Straight Oval Step Bar, fitting your 2009 through 2014 F-150.
In this video, we're gonna cover who these might appeal to, the construction, as well as the installation of these step bars which we'll touch on later in the video. But right off the bat, I'm gonna give these a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, as they should only take you about one to two hours to have installed on your truck.
So, if you're the owner of a 2009 through 2014 F-150 and you're looking to add a little bit more flair to the side of your truck as well as some protection, than the Raptor Series 4-inch Magnum Oval Step Bars might be the ones for you.
By adding the Raptor Series 4-inch Magnum Oval Step Bars to the side of your truck, you're not only gonna be making the sides pop, but you're gonna be increasing the surface area where your foot goes, getting inside and out of the vehicle all while not breaking the bank, which I am going to touch on later of the video.
So in terms of construction, the Raptor Series 4-inch Magnum Oval Straight Step Bar is going to be comprised of marine-grade T304 stainless steel. And that's gonna be for added strength and durability which could also take about 400 to 500 pounds getting in and out of the vehicle. This is also finished off with a nice, high-polish shine as well as the 4-inch step pads that are gonna have an aggressive tire tread pattern.
Another great aspect about the Raptor Series 4-inch Magnum Step Bars is that you'll be protecting your investment, be it any kind of hazards on the job site, off road trails, or even just protecting it from door dings in a parking lot.
Now in terms of price here, guys, you're gonna see these fall in line right around $300. Now in comparison to some of the other options out there, be it from Lund or Westin, they will tip the scales easily north to $500 to $600. For the money here, you're definitely getting a ton of bang for your buck, all while protecting your investment and making it considerably easier getting in and out of your F-150.
Now in terms of the installation of the Raptor Series 4-inch Magnum Step Bars, I would give these an easy, one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, as there's going to be no modification, no cutting, no drilling, and they're gonna bolt on in about one to two hours. This product is gonna be using the existing mounting studs, which can be found on the interior of your rocker panels, so there's no guesswork on where they're gonna be mounted up.
So, before you get these installed, I would make sure that you do have a basic socket set, torque wrench and a hex-bit set on hand before tackling installation.
One other thing I might add is that it's always good to have a second set of hands around, as they can be a little bit laborious, getting these on by yourself. When all's said and done, with the extra help, you're probably gonna be looking at about one to two hours to get these installed on your truck.
All right, guys, so just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a '09 through 2014 F-150 and you're looking to make the size of your truck pop as well as protecting your investment, then I would definitely suggest taking a look at the Raptor Series 4-inch Magnum Straight Oval Step Bars, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
