You can get rock sliders with built-in steps that will allow you to have the best of both worlds. You get the step up for easy access and you can still do serious offroading without any issues.

Thanks for all the help.

SCreed PS- air pressure adjustment helped a lot!!! Alignment and balance was done...Never a steering wheel shimmy, just awfully sensitive to road changes...tire pressure adjusted and much more stable.

Why does your Rubicon have Sahara side steps?
Maybe he's not taking it off road and wanted factory style side steps instead and swapped them out? (you can order them from the parts dept.)

daggo66 Welcome to WF!
Air pressure could be a culprit as sometimes installers will over inflate. Google "tire chalk test" to see a procedure for finding the right PSI. Also make sure all the bolts are properly tightened. RC lifts do not have the best reputation.

You can't upload pictures directly. They have to be hosted on another site such as Photo Bucket. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f2/how-...ture-8794.html
