I just installed STEP v2.1 and gave it a test run.  I noticed that some tree trunks now look yellow and some have bands of yellow like someone has painted a ring around the trunk.  
 
In addition when moving the snow on distant mountains flicker.  I made the changes to the Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini as suggested in the Guide:Z-Fighting but it did not make any noticeable difference.  Shadows from trees also flicker a little when you are moving.
 
I just have the STEP mods installed plus Alternate Start - Live Another Life (I did not install Dual Shealth Redux, Better Shaped Weapons, and Fores New Idles in Skyrim as I feared that I would not be able to figure out how to install them correctly) .   
 
One thing I was not able to figure out was how to set the Global Priority in LOOT for ELE_Legendary_Lite.esp and RelightingSkyrim_Legendary.esp.  
 
I have a Skytech Shiva Gaming PC Desktop - AMD Ryzen 5 2600, NVIDIA RTX 2060, 16GB DDR4, 500G SSD.

I found out what was causing the tree problem: I had installed a more recent version of the Skyrim Flora Overhaul than what was recommended by the STEP guide.  
 
The flickering on distant mountains is still a problem.

It is almost impossible to entirely remove Z-fighting on distant mountains. What are your INI settings?
