Most Commonly asked Question

June 21, 2017

This week the most commonly asked question is how to install a step notch.

 

FIRST STEP TO INSTALLING A STEP NOTCH OR C NOTCH IS FINDING YOUR CENTER LINE (THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN MARKED PRIOR). YOU WILL HAVE 4 NOTCHES 2 HOOPS AND 2 STRAPS IN YOUR KIT PROVIDED ALL RANGING IN SIZE FRONT 5-9 INCHES DEPENDING ON ORDER SPECIFICATIONS. TO BEGIN ON MOCKING UP NOTCH HEIGHT, PLACE A PIECE OF THE NOTCH ON THE SIDE OF THE FRAME AND MARKING WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE CUT ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE  NOTE: THE STEP NOTCHES ARE A UNIVERSAL PIECE AND WILL NEED TO BE TRIMMED TO FIT YOUR SPECIFIC VEHICLE. AFTER TRIMMING THE NOTCH TO THE DESIRED HEIGHT, SET THE NOTCHES IN PLACE ON THE FRAME AND CENTER THEM WITH THE PREVIOUSLY MARKED CENTER LINE OF YOUR OLD AXLE, TALLEST SIDE POINTING TOWARDS THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE. 

 

 

ONCE CENTERED, PLACE A CLAMP ON THE NOTCHES TO HOLD IN PLACE, THEN USE A LEVEL ON THE BACK PART OF THE NOTCH TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE LEVELED ON TOP AS WELL AS FRONT TO BACK, THEN TACK WELD IN. PLACE THE TOP STRAP ON TO THE TOP OF THE NOTCH STARTING FROM THE BACK, TACK WELD THEN BEND INTO PLACE WITH A MALLET USING THE HEAT OF THE WELD TO HELP BEND, COVERING THE OPEN SPACE ON THE TOP OF THE NOTCH AND TACK WELDING AS YOU GO.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THIS WILL LEAVE YOU WITH THE EXPOSED FRAME ON THE INSIDE OF THE NOTCH THAT YOU NEED TO CUT OUT. ONCE EXPOSED FRAME IS CUT OUT PLACE PRE-BENT HOOP INSIDE AND CLAMP TO HAVE A TIGHT FIT. AFTER CLAMPING THE HOOP BEGIN TO WELD HOOP AND NOTCH TOGETHER. THE HOOP WILL HAVE EXCESS METAL ALONG THE SIDES AND ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FRAME THAT WILL NEED TO BE CUT OFF. ONCE CUT GRIND SMOOTH AND STEP NOTCH IS COMPLETE.
