Do you think that the Olympic A/T slider rockers would be strong enough to double as a step? (I wiegh about 200 lbs, yes I am the heavier half! Very Happy )It is a bolt on assmbly that I have seen in 4wd hdwr, and I was wondering if I could use those instead of the "wings" from bestop that I currently have.
Thanks

I'm sure that they would be able to support your weight plus some!

Yea, I figured that, it was just the fact that they were bolt on's that I was questioning the integrity. I figured also to be safe, I sould have a piece of metal the whole length of the rocker on the inner portion to bolt through as well, that way the weight would be evenly distributed, and not put so much force on the bolt/nuts.

You should look into the Jeeperman trail skids. Much stronger and more durable setup.
