Side step?

I have Rubi with the stock sliders. My wife would like a side step to help her get in. I am looking for suggestions on a side step that I can install without removing the stock sliders.

By "stock sliders", I assume you mean the diamond plate rocker guards?
You could find a set of used stock steps. They work very well for, well, a step, if you're not worried about tearing them off, off road.

Yes, I mean the rocker guards. What about a rock slider that bolts to the frame, where I can leave the rocker guards on.

Thats how the stock ones bolt up, on two of the body mounts. If you wheel they'll find a way to get dented if your on the rocks. I was in the sand on hill climbs and God knows how, but it bent down, not up into the tub. No idea how such a thing was even possible. But they did make it for 6 ish wheeling trips before that

Ace rock rails. Theyre sturdy and bolt onto the tub mounts so theres no need to drill.
