Default Added drivers side step up.

My mechanic fabbed up a step up on the drivers side with an underneath brace (Good for 180 anyway). Cost $60 bucks fabbed/installed. My left knee is limited, so it's a bit lower than most (but the trucks lifted and on 33's so it'll be the added long bed farm truck). The 1/2 ton is the off roader. R...

It's a nice day so I decided to wash my truck at lunch today,on the way back from lunch I drove past a construction site and they must have just washed down the roadway and I ended up with a light film of mud on my truck so back to the car wash I went and rinsed it off again.
I just looked outside and the landscapers at my work are blowing leafs directly towards my truck with a huge cloud of dust. I can't win this battle, I give up until the next nice day.

Guys, this is a good feature, please carry on. I've not been able to find an after market product that would allow me to step up spin on the left heel and seat myself in the bench seat of this truck. The right artificial leg needs a heel rest to bend. My two legged mechanic tried it and found it to be sufficient for it's intent as a normal truck person. I don't have this issue on the 2500 diesel, the slightly lower profile and a 74" height works for this one with the bum back. R...

That's an interesting mod, and the price is right that's for sure.

Does it fold up out of the way when not in use, or is that a permanent position?

I ask because what happens if you hit something whilst driving down the road?

Hey everyone my name is Chase. I just bought a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 with the ext cab 5.2 v8 I believe not 100% sure on that but any way I drove it home and it ran fine the only thing is that I don't feel like it had as much power as I expected I'm use to driving a f150 manual 4.2 v6 which had a little power. It just doesn't seem to get up and go like I think a V8 would and I don't know much about these things so it could be totally fine. Any one have any suggestions though? It looks like the plugs and wires are relatively new so I don't know what else it needs. Oh and sorry if this is the wrong thread for this.

I dropped the coin and got a set of HID low beams H11 (5000K--55 watt) from Retro-Shop for my 2013 Outdoorsman.

The install was fairly simple (6th kit I installed over the years), just took my time.
Everything worked the first time. I wanted to get this done before winter sets in.

The HID lights are much brighter than the OEM H11 bulbs. Now I have Hid Fog Lights (3000K--35 watt) and HID Low Beams.
I don't see the need or cost to get the high beam kit.

Now I am ready for winter, but I would like to jump ahead to spring.

I drove my truck 15 minutes to school..Parked it beside a 2nd gen with a massive lift which was atleast a good foot- 2 feet taller then my truck.. parked it, turned off, got out, locked and armed it.. And so far that is all .
