Thank you..I will learn from your mistakes

My steps were from DeeZee but I assume that Luverne is similar. DeeZee sent only standard washers and hex nuts. Mine were already loosening after a couple days so I would recommend getting lock nuts. The connection plates were just a touch wider than the steps so I had to insert them in the step channel at an angle and them force them flat once in position. Much easier if you lay your steps on the brackets, line them up how you like and them mark the position of each connection plate on the side of the step with chalk....again the first side took about 90 minutes and the 2nd about 20.......

I bought a used set off a F150 for $199 on eBay. Only includes 4 brackets, but that’s enough for the F150, so should be fine for the F250. I wanted the Magbetic Gray also.

Great look! I am interested to do this. Any way you could post a pic or two with door open and looking down at top of step bar? Maybe even with your foot on the step? I wonder about how much foot space is avail to step on. Is the step bar partially covered by the rocker / door open panel?
Thanks

These steps are 6” wide. My original steps were 5” wide.

i have the 6" factory boards on my 2017 superduty. i wasn't too happy with the factory extended look. the extension is all black. wish there was someone that made a section that went from the original std 6" step all the way to the rear wheel that matched the design of the factory. although i am about to put on a tonneau cover so i probably won't have the need very often to have to reach over the side. unless i hook up a gooseneck/5th wheel. which wouldn't be all that often. but i would like the looks of the full factory wheel to wheel, and the extra body protection.
i see there is not much body structure for mounting in front of the rear wheel, it would have to go all the way into the frame somehow. independent from the cab mounted fronts.
maybe someday.

Thanks Hackenbush, I found some for $32 each. The grandtotal including shipping and 6 pieces is near $210. The steep price for some brackets.
