Rugged Ridge 3" Round Side Tube Step

Anyone using these atm? Are they pretty solid steps, do they feel like they could handle 200lb's standing on them?

Any off road action I would be doing wouldn't be very heavy duty so I don't need anything like ace sliders, just some steps for now.

You may not be doing any now but good steps are about 300. At $200 if you end up upgrading for more off roading later then it would have been more cost effective to just get ace or some other sliders.

As far as just steps go I'm partial towards the mopar ones. They'll act as mud flaps which is nice

You may be able to find some factory take offs on craigslist or ebay. Also check the forum for sale threads.

The Ace ones are bad ass and come with a bottle opener but I don't know that I need that much beef.
I have been scouring craigs list in my area and neighboring states, nothing yet.

I'm a firm believer in: if you have it, you won't need it. If you don't have it, you're screwed.
