I'm getting ready to install bolt-on 3" round step bars from Extreme Terrain. I watched the video and it looks straightforward. They are using an impact socket for the main bolt on brackets. However I noticed they dont use any lock tight. Wondering if its needed with the risk of vibration??? THoughts???

I'm sure they supply the bolts with either lock nuts or locking washers. But there should be no more vibration there as any other part on the Jeep, If you feel you want loctite get the blue.

You shouldn't need Loctite whatsoever. I've had steps on every Jeep I've ever owned and never once used Loctite.
