    I could use some advice/knowledge from you guys. Step bars and sliders are covered allover the place, but I am having trouble finding specific answers to some of my questions.

    So what I would like to accomplish is some steps to help getting in and out. Some side protection from road/trail debris would be nice, but I am not adventurous to need them to actually slide on anything. However, I would like to be able to use them as a hi-lift jack point. Ideally, the would be bolt on and preferably not need new holes drilled. So is there such a product that:

    1) bolts on with existing holes
    2) strong enough to be a jack point, but not necessarily needing to be strong enough to take a dynamic load (ie. sliding)
    3) inexpensive

    I suppose if I can't meet all the criteria, I could drop the need to be a jack point opening up the possibility of a body mounted step or something like that.

    ...Any thoughts?

    ur not gonna find a "step bar" that can be lifted on period. it would have to be a slider. there are plenty of sliders that aren't too off road like.... look more like step bars, your real problem is gonna be the inexpensive part.... sliders are heavy and if they are made correctly, gonna be pricy.

    if u wanna drop the idea of the lift point, get step bars. if not... start saving:) Slee Offroad here in Golden CO makes some of the nicest looking sliders ive ever seen for 2nd gens.....

    That's the nicest looking slider/steps I have seen, where did you get them?

    I got the demello rock crushers b/c I needed something that would protect and also act as a good step for my boys, but you have to drill the frame and they cost $$$.....their super beefy though and are worth it.
