Default Need ideas here

I plan on taking the step bars off my ranger this weekend. My problem is, my kids and wife can not get in the truck without them. I would rather not put steps back on or short steps. Is there any type of grab handle that could be modded on the interior? Something kind of matching so it doesn't look like a handicapped bar in a rest room? Any ideas are welcomed!

Why not get the steps that swing out when the door gets opened? They aren't visible when driving

If you're talking about the ones like on navigators, they are real expensive

It sounds like you're stuck with having to get a step ladder out every time you drive them, or keeping the bars.

The only thing I can think of is to mount rope ladders on each side that you can roll out for them to get in.

i carry around a milk crate that i tied a bit of rope to one handle when my grandfather is riding shotgun. i tie the other end of the rope to one of the tie- downs on my cap, that way when it slides to the front of the bedi dont have to climb in and get it.
