    I recieved the side steps I ordered and the installation instructions are pretty good but, they don't give any torque values for the bolts. What would you guys who've done this think is a safe torque value?

    For the side steps, I really don't think they need to be torqued correctly. They aren't as essential as some engine components or your rims.

    yeah, dont worry about torquing the steps. just tighten them where they dont move any, then if ya have to retighten them after a few weeks or a couple of months........they will be fine.

    You can throw on a bit of Blue locktight to be sure they dont loosen up. Gives you a bit of piece of mind too.
