No clue about the tub brand (craigslist special), does not tie in to frame rails, only bolts to tub

I went with the Carr Hoop II. http://carr.com/ The mount shown in the photo on the Carr website, I think for a Ford truck, shows a floor mount which will flip to mount to the frame. That is what I did on the passenger side for my wife.

I,m running a glass Tub and modified the original step to mount to the frame as any aftermarket unit does.

That looks great. I still need to figure out my flares. My rear tub behind the wheels extends further down than factory height, so my flares dont line up from rocker base to rear corner bottom. I had shortened rockers to match the fenders, but not the rear because it hides the frame/tub gap nicely.

anyone else running these steps or similar? I'm considering nerf bars, but the steps are cheaper and look good too imo

carr makes them for tj's, but confirm that they would mount too far under the tub on a CJ due to the difference in frame width (?)

Guys, I bit the bullet and put on some metal cloak rocker sliders. They look good and match their front/rear fenders well.
Better that that though, they work!

Here are 2 short vid clips showing how they saved by fiberglass body. Not at my best in these vids, but I am sure this will give you a better idea of things...
NO DOUBT that without them, the body would have taken serious damage.
Not a dent on the rockers.
Put your sound up so you hear the loud bangs on the rockers.

Nice work. I ended up selling the CJ and getting a JKU.

Look at the thread in my signature, starting on pg3 (post 35). Shows the steps I made, and how they attach. I should have maybe made the legs at an upward angle, so they were closer to the tub. Being where they are though make it easier for the wife and both our mothers to get in...

I'm also running a glass tub and the wife would like a side step of some sort. Anyone found any vendors besides whiteknuckle that make a frame mount rail with step for CJ7s?

Would like something similar to the Smittybilt:


Or this:


Thanks, Eric
