    Forgot to include the side steps in negotiations. What side steps would you recommend? I have a JLU Sport. My first Jeep and the more I drive it, the more I want to drive it.

    Thanks,
    Stacey

    Add some rock rails which can be used as a step and you get a lot more protection.

    I ordered a set of NFAB rock rails with removable steps - best of both worlds for my level of off roading.

    Thanks for your vote! It currently offers a $50 rebate good till 03/31. I will wait another week to see if any other aftermarket side steps coming out before getting the Go Rhino.

    Not sure if the first ones wouldn’t be slippery or what with water or mud on them as there doesn’t seem to be any texture to them...
    These are my favorites ! Might replace the standard Sahara ones on mine with these eventually

    Not to bad. 9 bolts on each side. 6 along the pinch seam and 3 underneath. Just gotta be patient. Get all the bolts started then tightened her down. I'm satisfied with them. Definitely feel as these steps are for a lifted Jeep though. Right now, I step right over them into the Jeep cause I got used to doing that before I got the steps. :giggle: When I get my 37s on this week, I'll actually be putting them to use though.

    Great point. I will definitely spray on some anti-slip coatings or bed-liner on it before putting it on the jeep. You can actually buy this one with bed-liner coatings, but it cost $200 more which the price doesn't make any sense to me.
    I love your NFAB steps too, but I am looking for a running board which is a lot easier for my kid and his upcoming dog to get in and out.;)
    I will report back with pictures how practical they are after a few weeks.
