    Hey I was wondering how you guys get into your trucks that are raised way up in the air?? I am serious here. Do you guys have little step stools or something that you take out of your truck when you open the door. Or is there a little step thing that folds down or something, I don't know rope ladder or something?? Totally serious here too. Cuz I'm 6'2" and I walked up to a lifted K5, and I couldn't even see into the windows it was so high in the air, and I couldn't help but wonder, how do you get in that thing? So I was just wondering.

    Loud..., I got a little step welded to the frame that extends out. That's how I get in the truck. Look at the pic. For me, I'm short, so I can't look into the window of my truck either when I'm outside. But I have no problems hopping in and out with the step.

    I like to scale the fenders. I use a rescue 8, carabiners and lots of "D" rings, petzel stops and ascenders. No, really, It's pretty tough. A friend of mine was 5'5" and had a K-5 lifted 13" with 42" tires. It was alot of fun watching him.

    I may have the answer for you, I just got in a set of SEC rock sliders with TJ steps that are removable for off-road, the best of both worlds, I plan on installing them this weekend, but I need to pick up the steps yet.

    Where can I find out about these Rock Sliders? I'm interested in that sort of thing.

    Oh yeah guys, nothing like watching your 5'4" girlfriend try to climb in your truck with a tube top, mini-skirt, nylons, and heels from behind. Lots of fun, then you have to do the gentlemanly thing and help her in. Can anyone say "Cop a feel?" Hehehehehehehe......

    Man, Just noticed, my pic didn't show up. I did the (image) thing too, no bandwidth stealing. Oh well, anyways, if you want to see what that step looks like check it out on my readers rig section.

    its kinda hard to see on the bottom two photos, but you can see kinda see it on the top photo, but its caked in mud. Its below the door. In that photo, that's when I had the 3" body lift. But now after I lowered it 2"s, the step is a lot closer to the body.
