Default Steps & Nerf bars added for YOU or GF/wife

Hey ,
I took my wife out to a dressed up event in my truck
She kinda had a hard time getting in and out (floor panels are about 23 inches off the ground)
So she's asking me to install steps or nerf bars.
So... how many out there installed theirs because of this reason?

if your lifted i say stay away from nerf bars, you should put some sliders on then you could build a little deck on top for her but still have a purpose built object on it.

If you put them on your truck all they will do is dirty up your dressed up event cloths lol. Part of the reason i took mine off is because they got in the way more than they were ever used to get into the truck. Nerf/Step bars on a non lifted Ranger are more or less for looks only IMO.

O. Well even with a lift the factory or standard aftermarket nerf bars are so close to the cab they really dont do much for actually helping people into the truck IMO. You may have better luck with something like this:


But is she really worth it LOL J/k

Most women have little feet. Therefore, the factory step bars DO work, for them, and them only.lol.

The only reason I have step bars on my truck is because I wanted bed caps for my truck, but I hate the look of the bed caps by themselves. The step bars even out the look. Plus i'd rather kick my boots on the step bars than the rocker panels when i'm trying to get the mud off my boots. Keeps my white paint nice and clean.

Patrick, that is an awesome picture man. I don't know why, but it's just really awesome.

I had N-Fab nerf steps on my F150 and if I do any kind of lift on my Ranger I will put them on it. I really liked them.

Gentlemen,
Thanks for the good ideas!
Personally, I rather not have anything,
I was considering a small folding step stool
On the times when she wears short dresses.
She's a good sport about the whole thing , and just slides in / out backwards!
I just don't want her to hate my truck, LOL

Ben... Got the note.I Hit u back
