'15 Hard Rock/Rubicon X/Anniv. side step options

I've tried to search, but have struck out.

My 75 y.o. mother just bought herself a Rubicon Hard Rock. I tried to install a set of M.O.R.E. retractable steps

http://www.quadratec.com/products/12590_12XX_PG.htm

The problem is - aside from having to modify since the tolerances of the holes are so slim - when they retract they're right against the rail, so you can't push them down with your foot...

Has anyone installed side steps on the Hard Rock, X, or Anniversary?

Those steps don't look like they'd work with the 10A/Rubi X/Hard Rock rails. You're probably going to need to either replace them with the standard Rubi rails or get a different product.

Your 75 year old mother do a fair amount of wheeling?

I feel like those steps are pretty small and easy to loose footing on.... I have to agree with the idea of the Sahara Side Steps. Not saying your mom is clumsy or anything but I can even see myself busting my *** misstepping on those in the dark. My two cents.
