Side Armor Rock Rails

Looking for some opions. I need to get some step bars for my 2 door so the wife and kids can get in a little easier. I will go off-raod in my jeep and I'm afraid I will bend/break the MOPAR tublar side steps. I would like to get some rock rails and my budget is between $300-$400. I am considering the Rugged Ridge RRC side armor, Smitybuild SRC rock guards, and Smitybuilt XRC rock sliders. I've looked on google and there are not many picture to see what the final application looks like. I want something that will stick out far enough to be used as a step and conformes to the body. from the pictures I've seen, ther RRCs look like they hang low and stick out to far and the Smitybuilt conform nicely, but may not be a good step. Any words od advice?

for those who have bought the Posion Spiders, what do you think?

You might consider some buying somebody's Rubi rail and having a DIY tube welded on.

Its a superlift. I dont have any better pictures at the moment, but I am very satisfied with the rrc. My kids had a hard time getting in the back also until I put them on. They are very easy to install and look great.

I have the Smittybuilt side armors with steps and they are great....they are wide enough you can stand on them (I weight 190 and holds my weight just fine). My wife and kids use them consistently to get in and out of the Jeep....sits to high for them to get in any other way. The only thing you lose is about 3 inches of side body clearance but the rails do not extend lower than the frame of the Jeep. I have pictures of them in my photo album on here.
