New Jeep owner with a question

Recently purchased a 2020 Rubicon. Due to the fact my wife is vertically challenged, need to put side steps on. Are there any steps that can be put on WITHOUT removing the rock rails?? Thanks for any and all assistance.

Adding steps just reduces ground clearance kind of making the point of having a Rubicon kind of pointless. This solves all your problems and saves you a bunch of cash.

My wife is 5'2" and these rock rails work as a step for her on our JKU Rubicon.

These are the ones for the JL and they aslo work with the factory rails.

If you're going to install side steps--the ROCK RAILS won't have any use anyway--

The STOCK SAHARA side step is a perfect ENTRY ADDITION --

Checkitout !

Good luck

You might find the grab handle is a bit high for her. Autozone etc should have a nylon strap that you can tie around the handle which drops down 4 inches or so.

I kid you not, my other half keeps a plastic stool in her SUV so her mother can climb in.
