side armor, no drill?

Any decent options for tubular side armor (with integrated step) that don't require drilling a bunch of holes in the frame? Like something like this? RedRock 4x4 Wrangler Side Armor - Textured Black J100183 (87-06 Wrangler YJ & TJ) - Free Shipping

Or is it just expected that to get anything decent I will need to drill the frame? Really I just need some steps for my young son to get in more easily, but I dislike the large diameter tube steps that hang down far.

Call a local fab shop have them make you some and weld them to the Frame

Get a set that mounts to the rocker vs the frame(yes you have to drill the side of the rocker) many come with a tube you can use as a step.. Or you can even make your own if you can weld.
