Hand made step bars

I wanted to m ake my own step bars cause i can not see paying what they are charging for some good step bars. Tell me what you guys think.





I am going to get them covered in truck bed liner but i think they are a little to low. As much as i dont want to i think i am going to get some new steel and make a little smaller set.

Kugss,
I agree, they might be a little low but other than that the design looks good. I think once you coat them and mock up another set (if you choose to make a shorter set) you could easily sell that set for more than you have into it.
Looks good!

I would make it so the two pipes are level with each other rather than angled down like that. Just my 2 cents. Other than that they look great man.

I like the design but have to agree I think there too low. Check my thread for the ones I built, I felt the same about paying those high dollar prices. I also just painted mine with bedliner and turned out great. Don't slip on them anymore.

im gonna have to agree with you and the others, little to low. now if you had more lift it would be perfect. i say sell those to jstarr (seems his truck is a hair taller ) and make you a shorter set. good work though

Where did you mount them too? Also what you make the mounting brackets out of? I had to put braces on the back of mine to the frame cuz they were bending.

I made the mounts out of 2x2x3/16 angle iron and mount them to the factory holes with u-nuts and 5/16 bolts. I do think they are a little low but they did help today when some dik opened his door and hit the bars instead of my door, so there is a good point about them.
