Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Greg in S. Calif. My wife and I just purchased our first jeep. 2021 Diesel Rubicon 4 door. We love it. We find it to be very comfortable. Only have had it 2 weeks. We do plan on doing off roading but not rock crawling. We have a Kawasaki s x s for that. A few other things: since we won't be rock crawling, any suggestions for side steps that look great but add to ease of entry? My wife is short! I was hoping to find billet aluminum type steps but no luck yet.. Part of the purchase deal was for the dealer to remove the softop and install the hardtop. So I do have the softop, all brackets and windows for sale. Taken off with 83 miles on the rubi. $750. Local pickup only. Glad to be a member.

Just curious....Your post says you are in California and your IP address is in Kansas. Add to that you are selling something on your first post.

Well, my wife and I have lived in this same house in S.Calif about 5 miles from Ontario Airport for 34 years. Never even been to Kansas.

I'm not looking for confrontation on this forum. I introduced myself, asked about side steps and mentioned about the softop. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Do you use VPN software to connect to the internet?
That can hide your actual ip address.

I'd be curious to hear more about that diesel engine from an actual owner vs a journalist.

Welcome aboard.

I apologize for not giving you the trust you deserve. Thanks for your answer and patience. Welcome to ROF most definitely. I live in So. CA, in Lakewood. If you ever need a local, I've got your back.

I do not use VPN software. I only use my cellphone. I gave up computers after retiring after 20 years as an IT tech with a local city. Blue screens of death, viruses, etc., Perfectly happy not being on a computer anymore. 30 years in facilities maintenence prior to that. The diesel is awesome. Totally in love with it. Lots of low to mid range grunt. Just hoping it is reliable. We only have about 300 miles on it since it's just a few weeks old. Love my GMC HD with the 6.6 diesel as well. What a beast.

I like the Rockslide engineering slider steps that I have on my gladiator rubicon. It makes it very easy for my wife to get in and out of the jeep. They would work well on a JLUR. Home

Welcome, my girlfriend is 4' 10" so getting into a jeep on 35s is a challenge. There are 2 types of sliders, body mounted and frame mounted the frame mounted ones hang lower, so tend to get caught up on rocks but act much better as steps. Btw you will probably find your wrangler will go through things that will stop your sxs. Have a friend with a lifted sxs and after one trip together he bought a jeep.

I am new to this so looking for more info. I assume body mounted type means they attach using the Bolts that hold the body on, sort of like the stock rubicon sliders. Correct? Frame mounted mount to the frame which sits back about 10 or 12 inches from the side of the jeep. If this is correct do you know of any frame mounted steps that allow for the rubicon sliders to still be used?
