Question Who's got big feet and weighs more than 250?

Who else here has size 14 or larger feet and finds the nerf bars on their truck just too flimsy and small for safety?

What did you do about it? Looking for some quality steps to get into and out of the truck without breaking my neck. Most of the google hits are for nerf bars of one type or another all designed for light weight midgets with size 6 shoes (no offense to midgets intended).

I'm 6ft 4" about 250 lbs, give or take a Big Mac. I went with the amp research power steps on mine and I love em, they are very sturdy I think they are rated to like 600 lbs or something. but the only drawback is that they are expensive $$$$. But with my lift they were a must.

yeah i'm there with yall.

6'1" ish 280 pounds with some big ole feet.

I really like the stock running boards. they might not be the prettiest thing but they support the weight and the block 90 % of the dirt and mud that seems to makes it way into the door jambs on the lower side of the doors.

Amp Research $1,200. Holy Moly, that's a lot of Big Mac's.

Guess I'll keep looking for other alternatives. And Tikal, that's a lot of lobstah, not chicken. My wife says I would have been a tall man if God hadn't turned so much under for feet.
