So you plan to remove your chrome steps?? What size are they, 5" Step pad? If so you have an interested buyer for the right price!

Since I am a site supporter I get a lot of space to load pictures onto my albums. I load them up and link the image directly in my posts.

I do plan on removing the side steps in the very near future and going with the amp research powered ones. I just like the way it looks better without the steps, but I need them to avoid wearing the leather seats out from dragging my short butt across them every time I get in and out of the truck until I get the amp research ones.


BTW, how do you get the fullsize pics to show up ?

Figured that was how.

Yes, they are the 5" mopar tubular side steps:
Chromed Aluminum, Wheel-to-Wheel, Tubular Side Steps, 5" Oval with black plastic step pads. Fits non-diesel Quad and Crew Cabs with 6.3` or 5.7` Bed. (For use with or without Splash Guards. No drilling required.)

Part Number: 82211501AF

They look just like yours, but extend to the rear wheel and have a 3rd step pad for bed access.


Once things settle down from starting my daughter in college, I will be selling them and getting the amp research ones. May be after the 1st of the year tho.

Right now, they are only 1 month old (truck is only 5 weeks old), and I will keep ya in mind when the time comes.

I think chrome is a classic look that will always look good if not overdone. Here is my truck from last year:

That looks great frostking, reminds me of my father's truck. You ever think of color matching the upper bumper valence though?

That is a good idea and my rear roll pan is currently unpainted ABS plastic so it needs painting, too. I should have never sold my mint condition rear bumper. I don't have a current pic of my truck but I added the factory 392 Hemi badge on the B-pillar, when they first became available.

It is a very clean truck. Does it actually have a 392? That's awesome...

EDIT: NM just saw it in your sig...

i must admit, i am a chromoholic, on my harley. not so much on the truck.
i could be rethinking that already though. i picked up the truck monday and have 121 miles on it and the painted front bumper is covered with dead bugs. i can see lots of paint chips in my near future.
