I like Loose Nut's idea of a side step.... however my wife didnt like the looks of it... so a while back I saw a electric side step that was $1200!!!! no way... anyways.. I was watching top truck challenge 1997 friday and the big chevy had a electric step.. anyone know of someone that makes one that is not so expensive???? I also remember one being spring operated instead of electric... anyone have any info on them? gonna google it now.. but was curious if anyone saw anything..... wife wants steps to get in but I dont want the ones that hang down as they WILL get ripped off!!!!!!
