Video Transcript for Carr Custom-Fit Side Steps Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at Carr's line of their Hoop II Step. These are custom-fit for your vehicle, so you want to make sure you use our fit guide to get the correct one for your particular vehicle. They're available in either a black or silver powder-coat finish or with a polished aluminum finish. These are available in either a two-pack like we've got installed today, with one on each side, or you can get it as just a quantity of one if maybe say, it's just your work truck and you just need one for you so you can get in and out.Having a step on your trucks is going to have many benefits. It's not only going to make it easier to get in and out, but over the life of your truck, as you're constantly using it and getting in and out a lot, it's going to help reduce the fatigue that you're going to get, especially on your joints and knees. So it can definitely save you in the long run, because if you're stepping all the way up here every time, and you're really bending it, you're just putting a lot of effort on your joints and muscles getting in, this can really wear you down over a long day.

Why don't you make things easier on yourself and just make it a lot less work to get in and out Your body is going to pay in the long run if you're constantly working it harder than you should.Our step surface has a studded surface. It's cast right into the aluminum, and you can really feel the grooves in there. They're going to dig into the soles of your shoes, ensuring you get traction when getting in and out so we can minimize the amount of accidents that can occur. And on your rainy, muddy days or snowy time of the year, it's going to help save you as you're getting in and out, so you don't have to worry about any slips or twisted ankles. And if you do have a bunch of muck on your shoes, you don't want to track that inside your vehicle.

With its nice textured surface, you can just scrape your shoes right off on it. It's not going to cause any damage to it. And when you get home, you can just hit it with a hose and it's back to clean once again.If you have any roof-mounted accessories or a ladder rack, maybe with a cantilever that goes over the roof of your vehicle, it can also make it a lot easier to load and unload any items off of that, get the things you need. You can also get another set for the rear passengers to make things easier for them as well, getting in and out. It also makes it easier to get up on the roof here.

And it also works as a great step, if you've got one here in the back to help you get into the bed.Our step surface is plenty wide. I wear a size 13 shoe and you can see how that would fit here on our step. It does have a length of seven inches with a depth of three and a half inches, and drops down five inches to make it easier to get in. And with its 500-pound weight capacity, it's going to be great for all of your passengers. No one's going to be excluded on this one.

And it's also going to help out with that extra weight, if you're lifting anything heavy up onto your roof accessories, you could easily put those on there and not have to worry about overloading and breaking your step.Now, if you're in the market for a step to get into your truck, you've probably been looking at a few different options out there. One of the biggest options is tube steps that run down the side of your truck. This is going to be a much smaller footprint than your tube steps are. As you can see, it's considerably smaller. Your tube steps normally run from the entire length of your truck here, from the front of your door to the back of the door there. And that's great if you have a of passengers that's often riding with you because each one's got their own step when you get that kit. But with this one, you've got more options because if it's just normally just maybe two passengers, you could do one on each side, and if you happen to have more people that ride with you, maybe you add an addition to your family down the road, you can always add another set.These are usually a more cost-effective option than your tube steps are. And one of the things that I really like about these is that they're constructed of a cast aluminum, so you don't have to worry about it rusting out over time. A lot of tube steps out there, you've probably seen a bunch going down the road. 5, 10 years down the line, they've got some water in them, they're starting to rust out. You don't ever have to worry about that with the cast aluminum.Pretty much have just a set position they go in. They have some minor adjustments, so you can fine-tune their final positioning. But this one here can fold. The bolts that go in it through here, you can take those bolts out and you can pull up or down to change the positioning of your step, and then you can reinsert that bolt. This is nice if maybe you want to fold the step up.If you find that you need the extra clearance, maybe you're going to do some off-roading and you don't want that step hanging down, you could reposition it and put it up. And you could easily take these off, unlike tube steps. It's a pretty big job to get back under there and take that hardware out. And some of that hardware, the way it's fed in, can be very difficult to get it back out without accidentally dropping it inside of the channels of your frame, and then it's lost. With these here, it's extremely easy. Just two bolts, take it out on each leg, and this guy's going to come off of there, and then you can go out in the fields and run off the road to your heart's content.And that completes our look at Carr's line of their Hoop II Step.

Still very happy with the steps. Instructions were useful and the product has held up well. It doesn't have a lift kit or muddier tires, but my old F250 is still pretty tall. The steps make entry and exit much easier for and old guy and his short wife.

Review from a similar Hoop II in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


My order arrived in less than a week and it took about a hour or so to install. Instructions were clear and easy for most any fitment. For my Chevy it could not have been any easier. This truck is for my daughter who has spina bifada so it enables her to climb in easier. The steps look great and I'd highly recommend them and etrailer. I've used etrailer a few times now and will continue as they have quality parts at some of the best prices!

Perfect. Strong. Use them every day. Excellent value!

Review from a similar Hoop II in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Originally ordered these as a replacement for the front. Did not check size before ordering. Decided to put them under the rear doors instead. Since I already had them on the front and was able to see how they were mounted, it made the install was a piece of cake. The instructions were clearly understood for my Silverado and only took me about 15 minutes per side to install. I have since ordered the larger pair for the front and will use the same brackets to replace. Only gripe is the finish on the ones that were originally on the truck (8 years old) has chipped off due to mag chloride on the road and frozen ice being knocked off. Since I was not the original purchaser, I cannot claim warranty issues as they are guaranteed for life. Hopefully with the new ones Carr perfected their coating, we will find out in another 8 years!

Review from a similar Hoop II in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


The step is great. The quality of the casting and finish is excellent. The installation instructions are worthless. A template to tape in place to mark holes would be good. I just figured it out on my own. The nuts and bolts package was missing 2 of 6 locking nuts. I had to find some on my own. btw, I was installing it on a 2006 Chevy Crew Cab front passenger door.

Working fine.

Wanted help with the ladies to get into the truck but did not want a full length step bar. These do the job perfectly. Very easy to install and very sturdy and strong when stepped on. Not to mention they look pretty awesome on the truck.

This fits perfectly on a 2014 Tundra. I had trouble finding ones that fit with the way the rocker panels are angled. Worked out well and I’m very happy with the results. etrailer is a great place to search for items you need and the service is excellent.

Review from a similar Hoop II in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


I like the steps and they look great. But the instruction sucked a lot. Didn't show me how to install it right, came with way to many parts. And was wrong on how to put the bracket on the step and onto the step. Just be more precise and descriptive of the process, and use pictures. I had to YouTube how to put these on versus using the included instructions.

Review from a similar Hoop II in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


The steps are as advertised. Would have given 5 stars except the installation instructions were poor. They fit my 2014 Promaster but I had to figure out which fasteners to use. There is some drilling and I didn’t like the sheet metal screws that came with it so I replaced them with some self tappers. Overall it was a good buy and my wife can climb into the van.

I give these little steps a 10. They get lots of use from some heavy people and are holding up great.

  • Side Step Recommendation for 1994 Ford F-350 With Lift
    You have come to the right place to find side steps for your 1994 Ford F-350 with a 6" lift and I highly recommend the Carr Custom-Fit Side Steps because they offer you the best footing with their tread pattern and have a significant drop to accommodate the amount of lift you have on your F-350.

    I have a solution for you, but the Bully Black Bull Side Steps part # BBS-1103 that you referenced hasn't been confirmed to fit your 1995 Ford F-250. Instead check out the Carr Tube Steps # CARR102521. These are very similar and have been confirmed to fit your truck.

    I have a solution for you. When the Bully Black Bull Adjustable Side Steps - Aluminum w/ Matte Black Powder Coat - 9" Step - 1 Pair # BBS-1101S-2 says "Not Confirmed," it means that either the dimensions of the step or the hardware that mounts the step are not compatible with your 1995 Ford F-250. Sometimes, on newer models within 1 or 2 years of production, the "Not Confirmed" status could mean that we have not yet tested it on a certain model. However, with your 1995 Ford F-250, we have...
