Default Rhino Dominato II steps

Wondering if anyone has that has these could answer some questions for me. How is the fit and the install , any drilling needed. And if someone could measure the bottom of the rocker panel to the step that would be helpful. Any other input , pics , whatever please fill free.

Just put a set of Go Rhino Dominator II steps on my truck yesterday. Took about an hour and a half to take off the old 3" round chrome steps and install the new Dominator II's. Easily a one man job.

On my 2009 there are three mounting brackets that bolt to the frame on each side and require no drilling. Installation was simple and straight forward. Three bolts to tie each bracket to the frame (the holes are already there) and two more on each bracket to tie the steps to the brackets. The Dominator II's are very secure and do not give and flex when you step on them like the old 3" chrome steps with their two bracket mount. I got the black bar and like the look of it over old step bar I had. The step part of the Dominator II's do tuck in under the door facing some and will take a little getting used to when getting out but I usually just hop straight on to the ground anyway. All in all (and especially since I've already spent my money) I like them and the look too. I say go for it.

Here are a couple of pics of the steps installed. Also shot two of the brackets showing how they are bolted up. The brackets are attached with an upside down V shaped thingy you thread into a slot in the frame. The stud on top is attached to the closed part of the V and sticks out of the slot. The open end of the V points down with nuts on the tips of the V inside the frame rail. You can see where you nut up to the stud and bolt through to the nuts. The step bracket fits into a channel in the frame bracket with the two bolts you see passing through and tieing them together.









I got the steps from AutoAnything and don't remember exactly what I paid. I had a couple of coupons I applied to the purchase but the retail is on their website. They shipped to me in about 10 days.

Understand your preference. FWIW two screws each step and no more step pad.

Please post a pic of the slugs you're having issues with. I'm curious to see where they are. If they're where I think they are you should be able to, at worst, knock them inside the frame rail. For sure want to see the finished product when you get them installed.
