Newbie Question: Side Steps

Ok, so I just bought a 06 Wrangler X, and I'm kind of short so sometimes it's tricky to get in the thing if I'm parked on uneven ground. I've been browsing the different options, and I think I want to get Jeeperman Rock Skidz, but I'm still not exactly sure. I'm looking to spend about 300 bucks, and minimal drilling. Suggestions?

The Jeeperman skidz are pretty good from what I've heard, and Poison spyder makes some good ones too. I've got the ORF rock sliders and they take a beating. Any good rock sliders will have you drill into your tub but it's not that bad, you just have to get over drilling that first hole.

if you aren't gonna go offroad and you just need something to help you in and out of the jeep then just go with nerf bars...otherwise, shrockworks makes a GREAT pair of rocker guards...i read a review of them off a web site and the site loved them...and i read a group of 12 reviews about them and EVERYBODY gave them 10 stars! a perfect 10 out of 12 people! thats pretty good considering none of the other reviews are near that good

Thanks guys. I was going to go with the nerf bars, but then I talked to some jeepers in the area and they told me to lose that idea because the rocks in the area will kill them.

The Jeepermans will stand up to the punishment and make a good step. Plus you don't have to drill any holes.


If you want something with more protection look at their Rock Sliders

I got the Jeepermans, and they went on pretty easily too. The hardest part was getting the helper to hold the thing straight while I tried to line it up.

I run the PSC w/rock bars and am well pleased with them.

looks pretty sweet but you'll lose a little clearance...those would be great as long as you don't do wheelin' where rocker clearance is an issue...like me, it isn't an issue for the type of wheelin i do
