Just a thought, in my area there are specialty shops that deal with handicap issues, such as vehicle access. It may be worth your while for those that are vertical challenged.

Why not just have a stirrup step added to your passenger side bars? It seems like that would be the least inexpensive. If you didn't want them bolted on the back side of your current bars you could always have a machine shop add a bracket with the appropriate drop and length in order to mount to the frame.

X2 on the AMP Steps.

I have a set on my lifted pickup and love them. They are spendy, but in my opinion, they are well worth it.

If you don't want to spend that much, I would lower the truck. It's just a torsion bar adjustment in the front, and a set of drop shackles for the rear.

Here are some pics of my steps.

Truck not too tall anymore

Well I did it. The truck is not toooo tall any more. I found a dealer that sells the AMP Powerstep and had them installed on my Silverado. Now my DW and I are both happy. The Power Steps are very solid and they look nice too, and DW can get in and out with no problem.

We have the same issue. Even after we installed steps, my wife injured her knee climbing into and out of the truck.

So every time we get in, I go to her side and put down a Rubbermaid step. She then climbs in. I put in in the back and get in. Reverse the process to get out. For me, it's a small price to pay for her comfort.
