Tubular side steps

Hi all,
I am looking to install tubular side steps on my 2006 TJ. I know these aren't very durable, but its what I want.

Can anyone tell me which ones fit well and don't have to be modified to fit well?

Thanks everyone....

I have Rampage Products tubular side steps on my 02. They are ten years old and the powder coat is just starting to come off. I am about to pull them and send them to the local powder coat shop.

Give it a little while and you'll probably get an offer for OEM take-offs. Lots of people upgrade to rock sliders. I'll be doing the same this fall then trying to unload my stock tube steps at that time. I've seen them sell on here and at swap meets for $20-$30.

How do the rampage fit? Did you have to modify or drill any?

So does anyone else have experience with tubular side steps that don't require modifying to get to work?
Thanks!!

I put tubular steps (black nerf bars) on my 10 JK. Bought them online for $114 (EBay) in 2012 and I am very happy with them as far as quality and look. To me, much nicer than the stock running boards.

Edit: sorry - forgot I was in the TJ forum. Never mind.

I have chrome ones matching my front and rear tubular chrome bumpers. Mine came stock in 1997 from the factory. They seem to be a Mopar OEM option for 1997-2006.
I've seen some cool looking aftermarkets on Ebay.

I would go for the rock sliders they have a more aggressive look

I replaced mine with sliders, but if I was to ever get side steps again, I'd get the style that bolts to the frame and not to the body like the ones I removed.

I know you like this style, but look into sliders with a step, you'll be happier in the long run.

Good luck!

I realize the rock sliders are much better for wheeling, but I only do some trail riding. Since I already have a stainless front/rear tubular bumpers, I am looking for the stainless tubular side steps as well.

I am looking for a brand that modification to get to fit is a minimum.

Thanks for the responses so far.
