    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?

    Looks great! That's kinda what I'm thinking of. What diameter of tube did you use.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
