Check out Olympic Reverse-a-Bars...pretty cheap, can be flipped up to use as traditional rock sliders or down and they make great steps in the downward position. Mount to the frame rails via sandwich plates. Quite strong. Not simple to reverse as advertised though...install em the way you want em and leave em...there's only 8 bolts to remove/reinstall to flip em, but some of them are a pain in the ass to reach and tighten/loosen. I have them on my Jeep and love them. Powdercoating quality is meh...I mean they're not chipping or rusting or anything, but you can see runs in the finish when you look up close. I bedlined the step on mine with my extra Herculiner from doing my tub (as well as the rockers where people's feet hit when getting in) and they grip very well when it's wet/snowy. If you bedlined the entire thing...the runs in the finish wouldn't be an issue either. My $.02. If I had to choose whether to buy them again or go with something else, I'd probably get them again.

Warriar Rock barz is what I went with. Sturdy, frame mounted so no drilling holes in the tub and functional. Kinda pricey though.

I went with the Rampage step rails. Bolt right on with no drilling and reasonably priced. I've had them on for about 5 years and they still look like new.

I've never had em up...they're tubes so depending on foot size, they might offer some kind of step. Check for pictures online and you could prolly find some of them in the upward position. Lots of guys run em like that.
