    Just installed the automatic step on the passenger side!! Very well built product and easy to install. The only modification I made was rather than bolt the brackets to the floor pan (which all K5 floors are weak) I turned the bracket sideways and mounted them to the frame.
    The step comes down in about 1-2 secs. I didn't beleive them when they said it was fast but it really is.
    I scored great points with the wife on this one !!!!! She is able to get in alot easier now and the step tucks up really nice!!

    I am thinking about ordering one for the drivers side now. Hope keith still has the discount out there for us.
    Thanks to Keith (kpanza) @ autoaccessory.com for the great product and best price. $166 delivered. (with our discount)

    I will try to post some picks of the install on my page next week.


    UPDATE!!!

    Click On my gallery for the pics of the step and install. They are on page 2.

    Re: Kodiak Sidewinder steps.

    Cool! Thanks for the post on these. I've been looking at them for a while now, for the same reason as you: scoring points with the wife.[​IMG] I'll look forward to seeing the pics. Kodiak doesn't show an application for our trucks, but I figured that I could make them work. Sounds like you did some minor mods to fit them, but doesn't sound like it was a big hassle.

    Thanks again,

    Robb

    Re: Kodiak Sidewinder steps.

    Took less than an hour. I just ordered another one for the drivers side. Points for me!!!. They say they are for stock height rigs, but work fine for a 6" lift. The ones I ordered fit a burban also.

    Re: Kodiak Sidewinder steps.

    Which part number did you order? I saw that they claim they are for stock height rigs, but that made me laugh; who needs steps for stock height?[​IMG] I'm only going 4" with 35"s, but my wife is only 5'3".[​IMG] I just haven't found another way to help her in, that doesn't reduce clearance for wheeling. These things are expensive, but if they are functional and keep the wife happy it's a good trade-off.

    Thanks,

    Robb

    Re: Kodiak Sidewinder steps.

    Any of you guys have a link for these? Sounds interesting. Heck my knees will probably need someting like this sooner then the passenger side of my truck. For now lifting the ladies in is not only easy, but a perk [​IMG] LOL.

    502Burb'

    I ordered the 95000300 which says it will fit 88-91 blazers and burbans. I don't think there is that much difference for the earlier years to make it work. Once I get the pics done you should be able to tell if it will fit.

    The price on thier website is $234 delivered. Like I said earlier kpanza got mine sent for 166.

    Re: Kodiak Sidewinder steps.

    Thanks for the link! Those look sweet!

    Those aren't priced too bad. I mean slidders are going for 200 to 300 and decent nerf bars are in the same range or more for stainless steel.

    Re: Kodiak Sidewinder steps.

    You're welcome, Capt, and you're right! They aren't priced too bad if you have a K5. With the Suburban though, I have to multiply that by four[​IMG], or.... I suppose I could just make the kids climb their way in and save a few bucks.[​IMG]
