Stirrup Side Steps..?

Anyone know where else I can get these stirrup looking things? I could only find them on ebay, but its expensive as balls with the shipping to Canada.. Dont even know if they'd fit.

Thanks.

Steps like that will only hinder you if your wheeling or cause more damage to your Jeep when they finally get ripped off.

If your Jeep will never see any real trail time, then they'd work great, but on the trail... eh...

My buddy actually had some similar ones on his truck. We switched rigs just for the hell of it and in the first ledge/climb I had ripped them off and convinced him to goto an actual rocker that provides some protection.

I had a set of the Carr single steps (hoop) on my Dodge 2500. They died a quick death by a small log that flipped up on a trail.

You can order these from any auto parts store.

My buddies has a "cheat" for his wife. He hand built a stirrup, bolted it to the floor (front seat bolt if I remember correctly) and it stays in the vehicle, under the seat. When she needs to get in, she just pulls it out over the door frame, steps in, and with her foot brings it up into the Jeep.

It's just a piece of wood with some 3/4 strap material. Works like a charm and no possiblity of it getting ripped off on the trail.

I just took some side steps off of my jeep, They were on there when I bought it. (last week) I know that the second these things touch a rock they're going to crumple and I hated the look.

But anyway, They are in good shape, no rock rash or any major scratches. If you want them we can work out a deal, they are about $150 new but I'd let them go for 50.
Here's what they look like.
