I have all of the proper equipment (not quite sure what an "extension" is however) and just looking for tips, suggestions from those have installed them on their own.

Thanks.

Here's a tip...don't let the sidesteps fall on your head as you install them-

Hope that bit of advise helps!!!

If I remember correctly from my install, you will need an extension (I used a 6") for your ratchet wrench to more easily reach in between the brackets to tighten all the bolts.

It's a very simple install. I put it together loose and then went back and tightened it all up. It probably took an hour to an hour and a half in the dark with no light.

Helpful hint

I installed the bolts toward the center of the vehicle first and then used that as a pivot point to raise the side step and install the oitside bolts prior to tightening the bolts. I did mine unassisted - my wife would not help even though it'd her Pilot...

Note: What's hers is hers and what's mine is hers!

Thanks Twinkie and Older than dirt .

Nice to know that there are still some people on this forum that like to offer some useful advice.....and not just take up space.

I'll give the side steps a go this weekend.

*cheers*
