I have these steps and like them very much. As said above you have to drill into the body mount - not too hard. The hardest part about the install is the pulling the leaf spring bolt in and out. With a buddy it is not that hard.

They work great and they have a good amount of space between the body and the step to get your foot on there. Need any pointers, pics, or measurements let me know.
