Intergrated side step options 1993 YJ

Ok looking for some info, or someone to point me in the right direction. I have the old style oem integrated side steps, and fender flares on my yj. I am looking to upgrade to a 35" tire and new rims , also new flares. I like the steps being integrated into the rockers and would also like to purchase something similar to cover existing holes. Can anyone tell me where to look for or buy. Any manufacturer of something similar. I've seen pics but can't find what I'm looking for. Saw some on a tj tht would be perfect. Here is a pic of what I have now and any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Pretty sure that some of the flares that Quadratec sells are wider over the wheel wells, then taper down to match the side step area in distance that they stick away from the body.

Have you thought about going with rock slides and new flares?

Not familiar with rock slides. Sorry only had this jeep for 3 months. This is my first build. You should have saw it when I bought it. Ugly! Fill me in on what you are talking about. Thanks

Thanks I like those flares but me oem steps have to go. They are trashed after 20 years of use. I'm gonna replace both flares and steps if I can find what I'm looking for.

Here's a shot of my last YJ with Bushwacker, pocket style, fender flares and rock slides:




This is my current YJ with trimmed OEM flares and rock slides:




That should give you a good idea of what rock slides are. They are body protection as well as have an integrated step/guard.

Ok I see the rock slides with steps. That might could work. Wonder how hard it's gonna be to match up a set of flares to sliders?

If I had to do the Blue YJ again, I would have done the Bushwackers like I did, but I would have done the A to Z Fabrication sliders like are on the Maroon one. The A to Z's go full length and come bare metal or black powder coat. Trimming the Bushwackers to notch around the slides is not a tough job and really makes for a clean look.

Great customer service and a really nice product. I debated for three months before I pulled the trigger. Looked at just about every rock slide out there. I'm not much of a "tube style" fan and really like the profile that A-Z created.
