Side Step Question HELP

2010 Ulimited Rubicon
Rock Rails Standard

I bought Weston Side Step
■3 in. Round Tube
■Series Unique Step Pad Design
■Mount Kit Included
■Black Powdercoat

Question: Can I mount these with the Rock Rails?? It does not look like it but thought I would ask.

Which is more prefered.
1) Step Side
2) Rock Rails (Jeep)

Answer 1: Nope.
Answer 2- rock rails. Side steps will bend/break. Rock rails won't. They'll also prevent a lot more damage. Pick up a set of Poly Performance weld-on DIY rails, and you have the best of both worlds. Simple, easy, and you should still be able to return those steps. OR, sell them on here or craigslist.
Cheers! Mark W.

I got rock rails with a tube step on them b/c I am only 5'4" so had a hard time getting up there. They are great, I put some grip tape on them & it works like a charm,just had them make them with the step turned out a bit more than they normally are.

I used Olympic "Rock" rails and some 1" 3m non-skid tape and they're perfect, for under $300 bucks

I use my HiLift Jack, anywhere on them, so tire rotation is easy !!
