we added these steps to mine..it has 37's with much lift so these make it much easier in day to day driving but I made them with pins so they can be easily removed in just a few seconds for clearance when needed

Backhanded help is just a small step below no help at all.

In terms of functionality, the AMP power step probably is best. Open the door, and it descends. Step into the Jeep, close the door, and it retracts. It is attached to the frame, and tucks neatly up with no loss of ground clearance when retracted.

good on you for buying the jeep YOU wanted to buy Jessica, I have some steps in my garage that are no longer needed see attached pic, they are in New Zealand but you are welcome to them for the price of postage.

Happy jeeping how ever you do it

cheers

For what it is worth...here are a couple pics of the steps I had on my TJ they generally run between $150-$250 installed. I pulled them for the rock rail type bars as I was tired of them dragging off-road. However with an OME SL and 1.5 BL on 33's, I could almost use them now....before they were for decoration, or for smaller statured people who rode with me. I did use them to install/remove tops though.

Bottom line make your Jeep the way YOU want it for YOU....ignore those trying to tell you you are doing it "wrong"

Well, if you can't do the Power Step, there is always the old-fashioned stirrup:



Open the door, lay the stirrup down, climb into the Jeep, then reach down and set it inside the Jeep before you close the door. The strap mounts to the base of the seat, and it's fairly cheap at $50.

Jessica,

Olympic makes bars that can be installed either up or down to create a step similar to what DBoat showed you.

Those things are awesome. My dad put some on his truck. I'm afraid to look at the price, however, but those are what I need. Maybe I can convince my parents to buy them as a Christmas present.

Thank you all for the help and suggestions (and even those that weren't so helpful ). I appreciate it.

You're better off visiting a parts website than you are trying to search through Google (there's a lot of crap out there). I like Quadratec.com because you can set your Jeep model and year in the upper left-hand corner. When you search for parts, it'll only show you parts that are compatible with your model and year. Pretty convenient.

I'm sure there's a couple other sites that do the same thing, but that's my personal favorite.

Thank you. I have heard Quadratec was a good site to visit, but I had never been on there. I didn't know which site was best, and from googling there was a lot of different ones.
