Mark, thank you very much again. You blew me away when you did this for me... I owe you big my friend.

Just a small sign that I am not the insufferable, despicable prlck that most think I am.

Mattb60 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Mine are on
It was getting dark as I finished so hopefully they are straight.
They seem great. Brackets and steps MUCH more rigid than factory.
Pics as soon as I learn how.

There are openings on the front and rear where the walls are bent around, so water and such has a place to go. Seeing as how I play offroad every now and then, I'm thinking the plan to weld a plate on the backside is a necessity rather than a preference. Probably help strengthen them up a bit in case they get smacked around a bit too.

Time to start in on the little upgrades I had in mind
I plan on taking these to a local shops to get a plate welded to the bottom as well. Probably gonna have them mount them a bit differently as well to give some added strength

Mine should be here Friday, however when i removed the OEM steps i noticed Satan ( ancient mid-western name of the evil we now refer to as rust ) has set up shop and dispite the economy seems to have bucked the trend and is setting record profits!

one must sit back and gaze in wild eyed wonderment at the industrious removal of metal from my vehicle.

Mine was born and spent 11 years of its life in Ohio before I got it as the second owner. Little scared as to what's lurking underneath.
