I've found the factory side steps seem to sit inward to the body of the jeep making them not as stable as you would think.
I'll step parallel full foot on the step to get out or completely step over it.
when I first put them on and tried to step out with my heel on the step i discovered my foot slips off and I'll get tripped up because there's not as much available step as you would think.
My wife likes them (shorty) but if she's in any type of heel she has a hard time getting good footing.
why not modify what you have and extend the stepping surface?
