Grog I am vertically challenged myself; not because I am short, but too many surgeries on my knees and well, that's another story.

I am putting N-fab rock sliders on my rig



They are a lot like the ACE sliders, but they have steps which you can detach when going offroad



They came into the shop today and I checked them out. They are pretty stout, and I will have them installed Monday.

They are solid, but to protect my rockers I will be adding Poison Spyder rocker armor just in case.



The N-Fab sliders are double tubed. All told it will be around $650 foir every thing. If I had more sense when I hit the trails I could probably get by with just the sliders, but I like the 4 and 5 trails. Can post pics Monday if you like

Yes, they attach at the same places the tub bolts to the frame. Just unbolt the bodybolts, put them up there, place washer and bolt back in and tighten!

Those look good.. And seem just as durable as stock rock sliders

greese my kids prefer using the tire itself as a step to climb in. Exiting only requires a simple swing and release from the roll bar.

My only rule is no stepping on the fenders. need one of those aircraft "no step" stickers.

easygoingpa Milk crate and grab handles on the spreader bars. Either one or both work great for my short wife

InfernoGirl I borrowed Jimbo's step stool idea for my 82 y/o mother.... Got a little folding stool at Wally's for $15, and just carry it with me when I have to take her places... The problems with rockers with a step are that 1.) They are too high to do much good, if you have physical limitations, and 2.) They stick out far enough to be an obstacle if you don't need it, and get mud all over the legs of your pants if they happen to be dirty for some reason...

I'm having some custom rockers made for the TJ with a narrower square tube step welded to the rocker for a bit of a boost, if needed, but narrow enough to not be much of an obstacle. For the JK we'll probably have the same tubing welded to the stock Rubi rocker.... And carry the stool when someone more vertically/physically challenged needs a ride...

deepbluerubi I've got three ways to assist my wife/grandkids/hitchhiking blond-etc

The horse stirrup is completely movable/adjustable and the plastic step will support 300 lbs




I would set the capacity of the step to 125lb max for the hitchhikers. If it collapses under her weight just leave her beside the road................

Since you obviously go off-road-get some sliders that have steps already built inem-or get smaller sliders and use 3M tape to make non-skid spots on top the sliders, then they can be used as steps-



There shouldn't be any trouble with entry or dejeepin, in your jeep-

Getting in Jeep

I'm installing a lift that will probably give me 3 inches along with the 1 inch body lift I already have that will make it difficult for my vertically challenged fiancé to get in and out of jeep. I've seen one lifted truck with horse stirups hanging from bottom of their doors but unless I plan on mounting some longhorns on my hood that looks not for me. Haha then I've seen what I thought was really nice . I'm sitting eating lunch when I see this old farm truck pull up that has a little height to it, then this 70ish year old man gets out and grabs a little plastic step out the back of his truck and places it on the ground by the passenger door where this 70ish year old woman proceeds to step on to and climb out their truck .. I thought that was awesome but fiancé is 35 so she's on her on! Lol j/k
I'm thinking of using straps ran through about an 8" piece of PVC and attach it to seat frames where we can flip it out , use as a stirup then flip it back inside.
Anyone have any other suggestions?
I thought about installing step rails but I like the rock rails on my rubicon and besides the steps on my last sahara really got beat up and cracked..... Don't know why? Lol
