    Ok so I just bought some 2 inch add a leaves for the front and rear of my k5. This will put me at 6 inches of lift.

    Now my gf is gonna have a hard time getting in. Anybody got pics of handles installed maybe on the a pillar on the passenger side? Got any other ideas?

    I always figured a rope ladder attached to the seat post(s) would be pretty handy, without having to add something permanent inside.

    I saw a pic in the photo gallery once, of a strup (sp?) off a horse saddle on a strap that was bolted to the floor. It looked like a nice setup. But of course I cant find the pic now.

    I don't think that the add-a-leaves will raise your truck 2 inches. They're made to lift the stock springs 2 inches. Your current 4-inch lift should already have more curve than the add-a-leaves. :(

    But I have seen handles bolted to the sides of trucks before. They were pretty popular back in the 80's, but I don't see them much any more.

    AT my local autoparts store they sell the old chrome handels like the ones on Chevy305s truck for 20 bucks a pair.

    If you would like I could get you a set and ship them out to you on youe cost.
