Adding side steps w/o removing rubi rails


I just purchased a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys 4 door. It came with rubi rails and I'd like to leave those on. I'm a shorter girl and I'd like to add on some side steps. I'd rather not pay the 750.00 for the Ace Engineering ones, as I don't want to pay that much, and also I don't like that they don't have grip on them. Any other options out there that anyone knows of?

Thanks for any input!

I looked around and found a couple that would work. But they $$$$$$ and its not worth it as it takes all of 10 minutes to remove the Rubi rails and install stock running boards.

I found a set of stock running boards from a Sahara and just removed the rock rail. Its super easy. If I feel the need to go offroading I can install the rubi rails . But for 99% of time the stock steps are perfect. They also help when you park and people pull close and open their doors. Their door is more likely to hit the steps instead of the side of your jeep.
I paid 25 bucks for a brand new set of steps. People remove and sell them on FB and CL. I saw a couple that was free but they would be gone by the time I got around to calling.

there is a youtube video installing a set for $350 that look stronger than the rubi ones and have side steps.

I think this will do for you. You can keep the Rubicon rail and add this on.
