Rubicon Rock Sliders
 
Do the stock Rubi Rock Sliders have any kind of lip to step up on?

Nope

they do pair up nice with the ace rock rails though

The Ace rails fit on top of the Rubicon rails?

They fit underneath the Rubi rails by bolting to the body mounts.

Or weld on tubing to them for a step

The Mopar Enhanced Rock Rails are standard on the 10th Anniversary, COD, and Moab editions which combine the standard rock rail with a tubular side step.

They are available as a stand alone accessory (unlike some of the other special edition parts).

If you can find used Rubicon rails ($200-ish), you can get the Ace Sliders ($340) and come out a little cheaper than new Enhanced Rock Rails ($700), but lose some clearance as the Ace sliders mount below the standard rails (that may not matter to your specific needs, though).

Poison Spyder makes a weld on step set for them.

That PSC kit is pretty nice, Do the rubi rails really hold up well? I haven't done anything to crazy yet but I am curious how they will take a beating

Is that a kit or did you make that yourself?

The PSC weld on steps look great. I had been planning on getting the ACE rails, but these would be a lot cheaper with shipping to Alaska. Any thoughts on these vs the ACE rails and durability. I would be using them primarily as steps.

The Rubi rails do very well for rock crawling in that they protect your lower rocker from being bang on the rocks. What they don't do very well is keep rocks aways from your rig as there is no lip on them. Also, no step as previously stated.

If you want solid protection then go either Rock Hard or PSC. One the issues with the ACE is you lose ground clearance. Rock Hard and PSC sliders don't reduce your ground clearance and you get a solid platform on which to step.

In the end it comes down to personal style, usage needs and budget requirements.
