Side steps

Hi guys, I need help trying to find a set of side steps for my 88 YJ. I need some because my wife is kind of short and has a bad back and she struggles getting in. I'm really leaning toward getting just the single steps instead of nerf bars. I found these
but it doesn't say they're made for an 88 Wrangler. Anyone know where I can find some that are made to fit? I've seen them on other YJ's but I'm having trouble finding some online. I did a search on here before posting but I came up empty. Thanks

Kentrol makes a single step if you’re not wanting the long tube steps or rock sliders. They come in black or stainless. They’re not super cheap, but I’ve always been happy with Kentrol’s quality.

That looks like really good stuff. I don't know if I'll get the steps from them or not, (due to the cost) but I'm pretty sure I'll end up with something from Kentrol sooner or later. Already saw several things I like. Thanks for the help dsaylor.

If price is an issue this suggestion is going to be a no go but...

For about $1000 there are power steps available. They extend when the door opens and retract when the door closes. I have seen them specifically for wranglers but can't find a link right now.
DAMN! These things are expensive.

I bought a set of their running boards for my super duty & they're ok.

They were cheap, not to hard to install but they do flex a bit when you stand on them, I'm only 175 lbs. & they flex about a half inch or so when I stand in the middle to tie down material on my lumber rack..
