Side steps for 2014 JK

Hi everyone, I've been a member here for a little bit but never posted until today.

My question is:
I just picked up a 2014 JK. The color is dune and it has a soft top. I'm looking to get a decent looking set of side steps for it and I was wondering what kinds are out there. I'e found these http://www.quadratec.com/products/12117_400_07.htm but I didn't know how these work out.

Any other suggestions anyone might have would be appreciated.

Are you looking for just a step or are you looking for something more functional for off road? Those will serve the purpose of a step but that's about it.

If off road use then I recommend something a little more robust from ACE, LoD, Poison Spyder, etc.

It'll be a step only. I don't plan on doing any offroading at this time other than a little mud.

ACE are simple to install, inexpensive, function well as a step and will protect the side of your vehicle's rocker panels if you ever find yourself a little too close to anything offroad or not.

I have a set of ORFab rocker panel bars on order, anyone else use these?

My criteria was no welding, no drilling through frame, had to incorporate body seem, did NOT drill into body (other than make holes already there bigger).

http://www.orfab.com/details.php?App...7&Title=ROCKER PANEL W/ BAR - JK WRANGLER 2-DOOR &Active=Yes

I previously tried to mount a set of smittybuilt rock sliders, and even though the website, online instructions said it would work with a stock Rubicon, you had to remove the rubi rail, and it did not protect the lower body seem from impact, which the ORfab does (yes, even though the rail still has to be removed, but it protects the body seem line, and made in AZ).

I bought a pair of rubi rails that were take offs [I have an S]... and a pair of ace rails.

That combo meets your criteria.

I got a set of 4" oval ones from Rugged Ridge. They have the black crinkle finish, are the all straight type and go from fender flair to fender flair. I've had them on for over a year and they still look great.
