Sidesteps = Snow Catchers!
Just a little rant here. This is my first winter with my 97 Sahara and I know the first thing I'm doing on the next nice day is taking the factory sidesteps off. I can't believe how much snow piles up on those things while driving around. I'm constantly clearing off snow, slush, piles of sand etc from those things.
I don't use them but my kids do when they're climbing out. I'll just give them a hand getting out, it's easier than constantly clearing off the steps. Plus I don't like the fact that all of that snow/slush/salt combo is just sitting there on the steps and up against the body.
After looking around at pics, I like the way the Jeep looks without them anyway.
Edit - Sorry, I just realized I posted this in the pics thread. Meant to put it in the General discussion but had the wrong tab open in my browser.
