Just a random safety thought...

See the chrome step up bars... just under the doors? My daughter calls them sissy bars, she another name for them - but I wont say it here.

Well when conditions are icy and snow is packed on them I advise you to watch your step using them getting in your pick up...
Because now I know it is not impossible to slip, get my foot stuck in between the rail and the truck door while falling backwards on butt.

Sorry no picture of the morning adventure I am giggling at myself and feel pretty stupid and thankful no one was around to witness this...

Wow, I hope the only thing you bruised was your pride... and maybe your butt! Sorry to hear about your fall, but thanks for the safety tip!

Sorry about the fall! My friend has those steps on their work truck and they replaced the black plastic with black diamond plate because of this reason.

The bars might come off, but they do help when I have heels and a skirt on to hop in.
Not much of a lift, but it is 4"...

Ive slipped on my running boards in the snow and I was still stock height but i fell right into a big puddle in front of like 20 people. It was quite funny actually I need to rhino line em or somethin to keep traction on them. Cant take em off tho, Disabled parents and tall truck with no steps isnt fun lol! Fallin isnt either but atleast you can laugh about that
