Hey, guys. It's Joe from AmericanTrucks. And today we're gonna be taking a closer look at the Duratrek 5-inch Oval Bent End Side Step Bars in Black fitting all 2019 and newer Crew Cab Silverado 1500s. Now, these are going to be a great option for you if you're looking for an easier way to get in and out of your truck with a budget-friendly set of stainless steel side steps. This thing is gonna be made out of heavy-duty tubular stainless steel, you got that nice black powder coating which is not just there to add to the looks. Albeit if you are going for the blackout look, this is going to be a perfect option for you, but it's basically going to serve as a second layer of protection from the elements. It's gonna be over top of that stainless steel so again, you get two layers of protection there. A nice touch from Duratrek.So, I really like the look of these things as well, sorta the less is more approach. Definitely my style. I think they look right at home on the side of our '19 Silverado. Taking a closer look at these, we got about four and a half inches of flat area for you to plant your foot. That pad is also non-slip so even in wet or muddy conditions, you're gonna be secure when getting in and out of your truck. Now this one is going to have the bend ends as well which are just there to clean up the looks a little bit. They just taper into the body of the Silverado to help give it that finished look. However, if that's not your style, Duratrek understands, they offer this in a couple of different variations. Obviously, the straight ends, there's also a polished stainless option which is going to cost you a little bit more but it'll look more at home if you're looking to lean into how much chrome is on the brand new Silverado. Now, that polished stainless option is going to cost you a little bit more. This is going to be the more budget-friendly option, we're looking at around 275 bucks. And, for a five-inch Crew Cab side step that's in stainless steel, that is gonna be one heck of a deal, you really cannot beat that.Now, before we move on to the install here, I did just wanna make a quick note. This will not fit the older generation of Silverado. So, if you have a 2019 Legacy Silverado 3rd gen, This is not going to fit. This is only intended for the newer 4th gen Silverado 1500s. Now, with that out of the way, let's move on to the install here. All Silverados have pre-threaded holes underneath them which are perfect for mounting brackets. I'm gonna touch on that in just a second here. But that's gonna make this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. At most, this should take you about an hour or two to get both sides done. So, without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need and how it's done.Tools required for this install are going to be a ratchet, 13-millimeter socket, and trim panel removal tool but you could probably get away with flathead screwdriver as well.So, like I said earlier, this is going to be real, real easy. All the newer 4th gen Silverados have pre-threaded holes on the bottom and they're perfect for mounting brackets. You could see some of them in the shot right here. So, all we're going to do is hold up our bracket and tighten it down with the 13-millimeter hardware included in the kit. Now, a couple things I do wanna go over here. If your truck didn't come with side steps, these pre-threaded holes will most likely have plugs in them. If you need to remove those, a trim panel removal tool like this one will pop those right out. And secondly, all the brackets are the same so you just need to grab one of the eight, they're not side-specific. Thirdly, there are a lot of holes underneath here. I'm gonna tell you exactly which ones you need to go to. We're gonna work from the back of the truck forward and we're gonna start at the rearmost position which I'm gonna call number one, this one we'll call number two. This is not going to get a bracket, we're going to skip that one for now.There's gonna be two types of 13-millimeter bolts in this kit, one with captive washers and lock washers and one without. We're gonna start off using the ones without. The ones with the captive washers will be specific to mount up the side steps to the bracket itself. So, again, we're gonna skip that second position. We're gonna come right down here to the third set of threaded holes. And again, we're working from the back forward. So, here we are at number four, this is gonna be right past the body mount here. You can actually see number five still has those filler plugs in it from the factory. That's what yours might look like but they pop right out again. Trim panel removal tool or a flathead screwdriver will take care of those. We're gonna come to position number four here and that is where our third bracket is gonna go. So, here we are at the forwardmost position and this is where our last mounting bracket is gonna go. So, now we have all of our brackets installed, I just wanna touch on the fact that these are slotted. So, if you do need some adjustment in these you could always loosen up those 13s, come back and get what you need from that slotted hole.So, now we have all of our brackets installed, next step here is going to be pretty obvious. We're just gonna take our side step and put it up on the brackets, tighten it down with some 13-millimeter hardware. Now, a couple of things I wanna go over here is the steps are not the same on both sides so you wanna make sure you grab the right one. The bags these come in when you unpack them are color-coded, passenger side is usually clear, driver side will be green so you wanna make sure you just have the right one. The instructions will go in a little bit further detail. Now, we do have threaded holes here on the back and they are gonna be for our 13-millimeter hardware. The ones you wanna use do have the captive flat washers and lock washers on there, unlike the other ones we used to install the brackets. So, now we're just gonna take this, put it up on the brackets, and tighten it down with the 13-millimeter socket. Now, before we take these down, again, these are slotted so you just wanna make sure that the top of your step is nice and flat, then we can come in here with the 13. Now, we're just gonna do the same exact thing with the other three brackets.So, that's gonna do it for my review and install of the Duratrek 5-inch Oval Bent End Side Step Bars in Black fitting all 2019 and newer Crew Cab Silverado 1500s.
