you should have seen it the last day of our county fair, it had rained and the overflow parking was a grassy area. "was". i locked in the hubs before crossing it. good thing too, i was dragging the step bars, didnt know it wa that deep. there was even mud on the roof and top of the cap. glad i wasnt pulling my trailer with me. id have hung it up for sure. those uniroyals are great highway tires but my winter bfg clones i run in the winter would have been a better off-highway tire.

when the tube steps were first put on they were up against the body and not usuable as "steps" i made drop brackets that lowerd them 2" and moved them outward 2". i also puored 1/2 quart of rustoulem (black) inside each tube and rocked it back and forth to paint the inside of the pipe before putting them on. ive noticed alot of trucks locally with rotted-out tube steps, and mine were bare metal on the inside. wasnt going to spend the $ on stainless for it. it was bad enough they were 200 and not useable as steps from the start.i also have a brace going from the lower part of the bracket up to the frame to keep the added leverage from stressing and breaking the cab body mount studs where the steps fasten to. they look a little low, but they are more a functional part than for looks. i havent had any problems with them. its not exactly a rock-crawler truck. it would be neat to have the engine coolant run through them and be self-defrosting in winter. but that would be alot of work with some potential problems that would just not make it a practical thing.
