Jeep Wrangler 392
Has anyone considered (or have) putting automatic sidesteps on your Wrangler 392?? I been having mines for a month now, ordered back in June and it arrived last month (sept).
Is this even possible to do on a Rubicon since you can't add the sidestep like you can on a non-Rubicon. I would want them like when you open door sidesteps come down and go back in when door close.
Any input?

Yes, I've popped some on. AMP Research ones. I had to get a pro to sort the electrics though. They work really well, and make it much easier to get in/out. And yes, they come out when the door opens - and slide back when the doors are closed.

Good to know thanks! If I may ask,, About how much did that cost you?

Any pictures to share!
 
Have you seen the step slider from Rock Slider Engineering?
Pretty pricey, but I think they are supposed to be rock sliders as well.
 
here you go…

Total cost of steps and install was around $2k

I put on some Rockslide Engineering Gen III steps, last weekend. I've had both, amp research and rockslide. Rockslide are a little beefier and can handle abuse. Amp, are more refined and probably a little more delicate. Both are around 2k. Amp uses the OBD port, which I'm not a fan of. Rockslide Engineering uses a stand alone system, their door sensors are a little janky if you ask me. Hope that helps.

Nice, love it! I added the upper body graphic to mines too! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the info! Do you have pictures to share?!
 
Here is a picture of mine along with the optional Skid plates, a must if you rock crawl.

The AMPs are around $1400, the Gen III Rock Slide Engineering steps are $2100 or so. I got the Rock Slides. My guy charged $500 for install.
 
I went with RSE also, the light kit and doors off switch or on back order. I had Amp on my JK, I like the RSE better but my wife liked the AMP better because the step is wider, she’s learned to live with them and doesn’t complain about them anymore.

No cover over the motor? I have the AMP XL's and they have a plastic shroud encompassing the motor.
Definitely nice to have the steps. I Love Mine!!!
 
AMP XL hands down, not AMP entry level ones, XL. RSE are good and hardy but that step is easy to miss and I already had one set of beautiful legs destroyed by a set of RSE's, they are not woman or kid friendly. The unlimited back door is so close to the wheel well and the RSE step does not extend far enough back. Its fine for the front seat people, with the exception of high heels.

the ugly sticker comes off
