Any M O R E Hide A Step users ?

I have a '94 YJ that has a 3" body lift with 4" lifted springs under it.
My wife is short of stature and has a hard time getting in and out of it.
She has back problems and trying to lift herself in by just the roll bar strap is a chore.
The Jeep has a Warn/Sun rock slider mounted to the body so the pinch seam is not usable for the mounting position.
Seen the MORE Hide A Step and it seems like a usable option.
Has anybody used one on a YJ and would the pipe style slider cause interference issues.
Am using a step stool at the moment but would like to get away from that .
Thanks for any ideas.

I dunno anything about the steps but I would suggest getting rid of that POS ugly 3" body lift, they are nothing but an eye sore. And doesn't help your tub in my opinion at all. 4.5" lift and 33's and I can go anywhere

I may be an idiot for asking this, but.... Why not just get regular side steps?

The 3" body lift is going away.
The previous owner made that mod and actually put over load springs in the spring packs.
It rides like a buckboard wagon.
I am going to replace the suspension with a Rubicon Express 4.5 and Bilstein 5100's.
Already replaced the front shocks .
And the body mounts will be replaced with standard size.
There is already Warn style rock sliders mounted to the body and I like them so they will stay.
But that means regular steps won't work.

I bought my wife a Jeep stirrup strap some time ago. She was against it until she tried it. She has used it for many years now. It's been so long I'm not sure exactly where I bought. Found a similar/same product. Should give you a good idea. I also have a full Poison Spyder cage. I have an extra hand strap on the lower windshield cross bar.

Bite the bullet and ordered one step in black.
The wife seems to think it will be just the ticket.
Hope it works as advertised,they seem to be awful proud of them.
Seems to be about the same price wherever you order it from.
Now I get to see how awesome Quadratec is to work with.
Will update with pictures if it works out.

Thanks for all the pointers.

For added support getting in and out, you could install some Grabars. Way better than a strap in my opinion.

I am also considering adding a set of those.
Makes it a bit easier for everybody to enter and exit.

Good to hear.
Don't mind paying a little bit of money if its a well built product.

Hey, I got some GraBars for Christmas this year, but they won't fit with my soft top window seals. The black plastic piece going down the windshield frame.

Did you have to modify yours to fit, or did they fit without modification?

Yes, but it was the ONLY thread in the YJ forum with GraBars. Wouldn't want to be accused of not using the search function on the forum.
