Steps for rocker guards??

I have some 3x4 1/4" angle that I'm building rocker guards out of. I need to put steps on for my wife and son to get in and out of. I'm looking for a source to get folding steps. I've seen them on some Jeeps. They are used for trucks I think to get a boost up in the engine bay. They're like a 4x2" cast or steel oval on a hinge that bolts or welds on. Anyone got any ideas where to get them??? I've tried google but can't find them. A to Z doesn't have them either. Thanks!

Steps, tubes etc look allright to me but ive never seen a "folding" step that looked even 1/2 way decent (my opinion only) Do they ride in it everyday? If not what about something like this (Its kinda cheesy too though) http://www.allthingsjeep.com/red32101.html

Yup... Thanks Besrk! That's kinda what I had in mind. Pricey though and SS or Chrome Brass only. I've seen the cowboy steps also but I'm afraid they'll get lost.
Thanks for the help!

I'm pretty sure JBolty runs some like those too. Seems like he posted before in the YJ Tech. that they were less than $10 ea. Don't remember where he got them from.
