I will be installing the American Trail Steps, the order is being processed so hopefully soon. I would've already had them but I was sent the Gladiator steps by accident so it is taking forever to get them. On a side note the steps are excellent quality. They are the same design except for the rear bump out and length but the front 3/4 are the same. I think they will look nice. I like they hide the pinch seam over the Rampage Steps. Most likely you will have a wait, I talked to the owner about my order and they are behind on orders. I will post pics here once installed.

They do look very nice and the quality looks good as well.

The ATR Rock Rail Side Steps finally came in and installed them yesterday. It took forever. They are nice.

This set directly from the Manufacturer. If you need to contact them, try email. The phone system is worthless, no one answers or returns voice mails.

got mine yesterday. Were any of your brackets not bent correctly? 3 of the 6 are wonky on mine and couldn’t even get them to fit.

I had one on the drivers side I had to bend. The middle I needed a bar to bend then I put the bolt in. Passenger side no issues.

Thanks for info. A bit pissed that for $500+ I need to do any metal fab work. Not sure I’m keeping them!

How do these mount? Are they body bolt mount?
They are mounted using the same factory holes as the Rubicon rock rails, you do not use the body mount bolts. Simple install besides the quality control from the sound of it.

I get it. My issue between getting the wrong ones and the huge delays I just dealt with it. I really liked the looked and no guarantee the next ones would fit either so I made the adjustments myself. I did find if you put the small bolts that go thru the pinch seem on first and tighten them slowly and evenly across all six of them that pulls the rails into better placement for the three larger bolts. If you try putting the three large bolts in first the holes are not even close.
