    The first choice is between the bar/step type and the true running boards depends on the way you use the vehicle, and on your personal preferences. However, not all choices are that clear, and there is an array of both universal and custom fit running boards to choose from.

    1997 Jeep Wrangler
    | Posted by | (Lufkin, TX)

    The tub rails look great. I have 3 Jeeps with tube doors and tube steps. I added these to all three Jeeps. Lots of compliments. If you are wanting a bolt on product though, you are in trouble. The side of the Jeeps is dead on straight. The rails, because of welding all have a 3/16 of an inch bow in all 6 of them. The rails are so strong, that the Jeep sheet metal will deform out to them when you are installing to the Jeep side. A trip to a local machine shop, and a hydraulic press was required to get them flat enough to look and work correctly. A foam gasket is included, but does not work to fill the difference between the two surfaces. Also, it will hold water and rust the sheet metal. I had to carefully caulk with black caulk. (Lowe's has it).
