Rocker guards with side step functionality

Okay I'm sure this question has been asked a few times before so here it is again. I'm looking for some rocker guards for a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that has sidestep functionality. My wife is little shorter and likes the sidestep plus I have to carry my parents around sometimes as well and its hard for them to get in and out the Jeep. Right now I have no preference because I'm not sure what is out there that will fit my needs.

I like the N-Fab nerf bars. The steps are functional and don't extend too low when you are 4 wheeling.

lod, shrockworks, white knuckle offroad, cbi offroad (you can ask them to angle it)...same with evo rock sliders (there are tons of sliders out there but I named these from memory). All features frame-based mounting, able to dish out abuse rather than receive it, and can be used as a functional step that's a hair bit higher than the pinch seam.

I went with ACE sliders. They can be a step as well. Not the best pic but the only one I have.

I like the Ace but you have to grind the washers? Is that true?

Yes you do have to grind the washers. Theres a huge thread on here dedicated to ACE sliders with tons of pics should be on the first or second main page

I've got them and love them....
They could place the step a little farther to to rear.
But they are really loud, almost like it s breaking something.

They work great as sliders and as steps.

(x max(N)) + 1!

As soon as I got them installed, the Mrs. was "oh, that's much better!" as she climbed aboard!

Do it. Just don't do it with an angle grinder (PITA). Either get a bench grinder or find a machine shop to grind them for you (10-20 minutes).

I ended up going with the N-fab wheel to wheel side steps. While they are not rockers they are side steps and look great on the jeep. Thanks for everyones input!
