    These things are awesome.

    I couldn't do side steps that hang low as I actually offroad my JL.

    They are built solid with nice styling. Once I get my roof rack, these will definitely help with that too. As you can literally stand on them with both foot and get easy roof access.

    The logo also has a backside insert that you can paint whatever color you want. The first picture doesn't have this insert on, the second picture shows it with red. And the accent lighting is a nice extra touch.

    These are not frame mounted. They are VERY solid and they will provide some protection. Frankly I think they’re better than the standard Rubicon rock rails but they are not going to be as solid as something like LoD rock sliders that actually mount to the frame.

    That said, I have these on my Jeep and they’re fantastic.

    They ARE frame mounted.

    Their old version was body mounted.

    Here's a look at a few of the mounting points directly to the side of the frame. There are a total of 4 mounting points on each side.

    Contact @ROAM

    I am not sure if the old body mount version can be converted.

    I'll grab a few later today. I will say that mine is body mounted.

    Seriously though @ROAM, if you make/offer a kit that will upgrade mine to frame mounted, I'll buy them. I'm also eyeballing your tire carrier.

    i will tell you what wouldve been nice.....when i was ordering my roam steps a few months ago, if anthony wouldve said, 'hey, wait a month and these will be frame mounted, too" . that wouldve been nice. so what i am now is a little pissed that i bought his product for $400 and the same money buys a far better one.

    Also, weight has to increase when moving to frame mount, right?

    I'm not so sure that will be the case. The mounts for the body are VERY substantial. I think it will be heavier but not by a lot.

    So are you still in love with these? We are looking to get some side steps but most appear to be body mounted. We want something that will be able to take a hit like a rock rail (I assume rock rails are frame mounted??) but also be a step. Currently we have the stock Mopar side steps that come with the Sahara. The problem is with a 2" lift these are pretty much useless from a step perspective. Ideally we want something that hangs down a little to make it easier on the Mrs. getting in and out. But then I saw that the Roam ones are frame mounted and reasonably priced. Have you beat on them or taken a hit on them?
    Here is something we found (among many others) https://www.quadratec.com/p/go-rhino/d1-dominator-side-steps-jeep-wrangler-unlimited-jl

    Looks like the body^H^H^H - AHEM, frame mount version of the Roam step will be publically available late November / early December.

    I'm just going to have to be patient :piggybank:
