Carr Side Steps are made of corrosion resistant, durable cast aluminum alloy. They feature a unique pattern with a flat step area that provides a safe non-slip surface. They perfectly fit in any 3-inch diameter tube bumper. The Carr side steps also clamp around the tube for maximum protection. Lastly, they are easy to install.
"You will notice the quality of this product the moment you open the box. I appreciated the easy to follow, concise directions included with the steps.
Also included were the hardware/mounting components, neatly packaged in 2 clear plastic bags, 1 for each step; unlike some furniture items needing assembly which often dump all the components in one bag, which can be frustrating to sort through. Plus, there really isn't a lot of hardware anyway; but they do include neatly machined aluminum shims should you require a specific type of installation.
For this particular truck I found it necessary to have an angle drill as opposed to a standard drill, as my standard sized Miluakie wouldn't fit into the space needed to drive the top screws in. This was frustrating but certainly didn't reflect negatively on the product, in my opinion.
I also find the corrugation on the steps to be very effective in preventing slippage, even in soppy, muddy conditions on the farm.
Lastly, the accuracy of the design is spot-on, meaning the ends of the steps mount perfectly in place, as they should. Hope this helps!"posted by: Greg on January 28, 2011
