Installing Steps On 1999-2006 Super Duty and Excursions
These instructions will work for all Super Duty
step bar installations regardless of how many doors you have. Only tools
needed are a ratchet or drill with a 10mm and 13mm socket.
I usually slide the box
next to the truck so that I can lay on the cardboard after I fold it open
As you can see the steps
already have spread nuts presses into them. All you got to do is put
the bolt in.
Included in the kit are
all your brackets, plastic covers, and hardware needed for your
First assemble your
brackets and the plastic covers. Lay the cover over the bracket and
line the holes up.
Flip it over and you
will see that you can place the 10mm bolt into the speed clip and hold the
plastic cover to the bracket. Screw the 10mm bolts down tight.
This is all the hardware
that is needed to mount the brackets to the body of the vehicle. On
the 4 door and 2 door extended cab trucks you will have 11 sets per side and
three bracket per side. On the regular cab you will have only 7 sets
of hardware and 2 brackets per side.
This is all I use to
mount my bars. A drill to screw the bolts in fast and then I use my
ratchet to crank them down tight. The wobble bit comes in very handy.
You will see three
locations under the body that you can slide the speed clips into.
Line up the bracket with
the holes in the speed clips and screw your bolts in with your hand.
Leave the brackets loose. This will help you line up the holes on the
step bars later.
Once all your brackets
are loosely mounted. You are ready to set the steps on the brackets.
Screw the bolts in with your hands as well.
Now you are ready to
screw the bolts in tight. I Usually start with the bracket tight then
I do the bar.
I then go over all the
bolts with a ratchet and give them a final crank to make sure they are
Move to the other side
and do the same thing and then you are done!
