There is no doubt in my mind that these trucks look good without running boards

At the same time, I also like getting into my truck. I am interested to see what these will look like.

Your truck is going to look like you took the top half off of a 97 and just set it on the bottom half of an 05

I have to get some but wanna get new style or excursion kind with lights in them, my daughter needs help everytime getting in the truck and my wife has a hard time climbing in and out as well as my mom. Wife is tallest in the group but pregnant so that don't help her much.

Get some pictures up of the install. I have been looking for a factory set of steps for my '97 and can't find any in good shape.

I might be interested in your old steps. Shoot me a PM with some pictures of them on the truck and the brackets for it.

here are some quick pics.... not the best, what do you all think? im thinkin too far out. i may cut them off and change the braket setup anyway. i went way too far involved to cut and bent and reweld the c-channel in a curved pattern to match the bottom edge of the running board. didnt even think bout cutting a cmall piece and turning it upsidedown and sidewats and rewelding it do the bottom round edge sits in the c-channel
