Just got an F150 4wd extended cab that is a little higher than what I used to drive. I need to add some running boards/steps.
The problem is the "wife to be" has rheumatoid arthritis which makes the climb a little difficult at times. Looking around at commercially available steps and running boards, it seems that you gain only about 4 inches in reduced step height. This may be a little too high still on the "bad" days.
Anyone know of a brand that hangs a tad bit lower than the others? Dropping a good 6 inches would be nice and would still be only slightly lower than the frame (I don't intend to need super high clearance for off road stuff)*metalworking content* I could fab my own but I'm not sure it's worth the hassle consdering the bolt-ons available (assuming I can find a slightly lower set). The other option is modifying a mount spacer to make an off the shelf unit sit a little lower. Anyone built their own or have any comments on the mount/system to lower the step up? I'd love to use a lineal actuator to make a lowering step but I think that's a project that would never get past the planning stage due to time. RV versions of this tend to be a little spendy and will probably be a bit of a hassle to mount.
