    recently purchased a 2017 Wrangler Unlimited that has been lifted. it has rock slider/side steps but my wife is too short to reach them. Has anyone seen any type of after market add on stem I can put on her side or possibly a carry in the back hang on step to assist her in loading? looking for help!

    One of the neatest ideas I've seen was a chain welded to the bottom of the rocker guard in a U-shape for a step. It rises over obstacles and hangs to step up into the jeep.

    I would still worry over it hanging up on things and so I use this step from Harbour freight:

    Well its not the $500 ENTRY solution JK aftermarketers luv to charge it can always be repurposed. Neat seat, table, takes up little room, light-weight mini-ladder, bar-b-q side table, etc.

    thanks for the suggestions. I think I'm going to have to pull the rock sliders and go with some sort of step rail. If Momma aint happy, ........

    I'm gonna second motion the step. My Wifes mom is handicapped, so I carry a little step to allow her to get in.
