side steps and kids

I am looking for some steps so my son can actually climb in to my jeep himself... im kinda sick if lifting him in and my wife just can't lift him anymore. Any suggestions? I have a 2009 JKU.

Well I do live in a "hick" part of Utah so that would work. I do like that idea of a removable step.

Haha I just got a complaint because a girl couldn't get on my truck with a skirt, I don't think she would be to thrilled to use those.

1- girls who complain about the height of your vehicle need to pack their bags. 2- I don't think any woman would like to hear "put your foot in the stirrup"

True, she still got on I still took her for a spin and she still stayed form coffee. But I'm kinda glad I went with a 2.5 inch not a 4 inch lift

as for steps...jks are pretty short as is...get something with a removable step or the stirrup step so you dont hinder your clearnace

I have heard a lot of good things about the ace sliders. Just a little out of my price range.
