Pickup trucks can be difficult to access in a number of ways.
Firstly, their cabs are much higher off the ground than your average sedan or SUV. Secondly, a large bed means having to adjust large loads of cargo, and doing so unassisted can be a hassle.
To fix these issues, there are a number of accessory options available – one of which is the side step.
Side steps can be either fixed or retractable accessories that are fixed along the side of your truck or at the rear. Essentially, they are foot supports that allow you to enter or exit the cab, or adjust your cargo, without having to use a ladder or another piece of equipment.
While the upsides are simple, these accessories can come with an intimidating price tag depending on your choice in truck.
If side steps aren’t for you, but you still would like a leg up from time to time, there are other options for you to choose – including nerf bars and running boards. To learn more about these options, continue reading here.
