    Okay so the Burb is way to high for the misses to get into now, so I need some steps. Smittybily makes a predator step, which I like, but not for my Burb. Members please post pics for everyone to see!

    Try doing a search...I seem to recall a similar thread of this nature not too long ago. Had some pretty good ideas if I remember correctly.

    I run some carr steps and I like them, they only took about an hour to bolt on and they are adjustable for different angles. They support over 350 lbs and don't flex much, my dad and I both got on one. The first picture is kind of a wierd shot of me fixing that freaking pan gasket but it shows the steps, the second one is when I was playing around trying to flex the springs after I put the drive shaft in so it isn't just of the step but it is the best I have on the computer for now.

    i'd like to get some saddle stirrups and hang them from the seat legs so that they can just be pulled out to step up, and then pulled back in the truck so as not to sacrifice ground clearance. you could do the same thing on a budget by taking some rope and putting a 6" long piece of tubing on it such that you don't get your foot caught in just a simple loop of rope.

    Not a big fan of the individual steps, I like the wheel to wheel look.

    I would look for some nerf bars if you don't plan on wheeling it much. My buddy here at work has a pip bender, and we both have welders. I think it would be pretty easy to make up a pair of 3" neerf bars with a recessed step for front and rear doors. I am thinking of this for the tahie too since they are god awful expensive to buy.

    I agree, and I would like to get nerf bars, but I have to think of the wife. She is still going to have to jump just to reach the step, kinda why I am interested in those predator steps. Maybe I should just get the single steps.:confused:

    My wife loves the slider steps shes not super tall either but she says its just right and it is a 6inch lift. I don't know find a good deal and give it a shot NERF bars could be good

    Here is a pic of my sliders, then just make yourself a removable hang down step that slips over the round tube.
