Side bars

Guys,

Need some advice on what sidebars/steps to run on my 1994 yj. It's lifted two inches on 31's. Let me know and if you have links that's even better!! Thanks in advance

I installed these on my 93 YJ 2 weeks ago and love them. My wife and kids complained about getting into my toy after I installed my 4” lift. Problem solved!

They bolt to the body not the frame. You don't have to drill giant holes in your frame and loose ground clearance like you would with frame mounted bars. But you have to drill holes in the body but if you have factory side steps and want them gone it covers the holes left from taking them off.

But if you are height challenged and need a step to get into your jeep then your boned. I never liked frame mounted nerf bars they eat up ground clearance and are generally made out of thin steel and they end up bending and hitting the body anyways.

I prefer rock sliders without built in nerfs if you want the nerf look and better protect your sheet metal rock sliders are better.

I originally ordered the exact same thing that adalloch has, but after finding the Tyger steps I sent those back (nothing was wrong with them). I had to cover the holes left from the original factory steps, so I did a rocker panel with no steps in addition to the steps.

I will say that the Tyger steps are VERY solid if that is a concern, but you may lose an inch or so of clearance

I got these budget ones, similar to agalloch’s and price is right, no holes needed to drill but step dented pretty easily on a rock. Still totally functional as a step and rocker panel is protected.Click image for larger version

Agreed, get some rock sliders. I’m installing some Poison Spyder sliders now, but check out Trail Gear for a cheaper option.

I just put the Smittybilt ones on my 93 YJ that look just like the ones posted above. Super easy install and so far I really like them.

If your getting them for function I’d look into some beefier ones than what I got! It saved my rocker panel and that’s all that matters, I don’t plan on fixing it either. If you don’t plan on playing in the rocks then get as cheap of one you can buy.
