    Never liked the steps that bolt to the pinch welds even Ford did that back in the late 90s to early 2000s also Eric O good Video as Always @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

    Put a pair of steps like those on my Ranger the summer I got it. MUCH cheaper than the OE running boards, and the Mrs was very happy I did. She's vertically challenged.
    The torque spec was easy, just one sixty year old oo-arghhh with a half inch ratchet.

    You don't get much on a base pick-up, even @ 40k. Want some of the goodies? You spending at least 70. Fully loaded? Over 90.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sutton Coldfield says:

    I've always wondered – why put side steps on a high clearance truck cos it just reduces the clearance.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kristopher grieb says:

    I actually thought that I had seen every one of your videos. But man im finding new ones every day. Little gems hidden away in a YouTube ethos!

    Love the hand full of parts part. That's so true in many automotive areas

    Same as factory

    Thankfully China is there to answer all of our manly truck needs.

    Yeah, that's not gonna end well….

    Anyone tried to purchase a real work truck lately?
    Last I looked it was near impossible.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cap'n jimmy says:

    I have the same exact truck. 65,000 miles I have not had any issues I've done nothing but regulat scheduled matenience

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Samuel Collie says:

    Great channel! I bought a 2013 Dodge Ram. The dealer wanted over $800 to put running boards on. I got a pair for $200 on the web and installed myself. Not a lot of fun in the spring in the NW but saved. Now the truck needs exhaust manifold bolts replaced. That I cannot do myself.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fred Berfal says:

    chinas finest. when big bertha puts her hoof on that pos its all over

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars erg0centric says:

    should have gone with the pink steps

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clutch1986 says:

    i installed side steps in my driveway on the Dakota 05 i used to have. It sucks to crawl under to install those, specially when the frame is crusty.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clutch1986 says:

    hahaha, that intro was savage!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aj Johnson says:

    Frame mount steps are definitely better. They hold the cab up when the cab mounts rot out.

    Hey Eric, I traded my Silverado in for a Tacoma and man is it built well!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tiz tiz says:

    Hello ladies 😎😎

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R Harris says:

    I have a 2014 Silverado that had the factory steps put on by the dealer. I have 5 years and 88000 miles with out any problems. I am 6'1 and weigh 285, no crinkles yet.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan M says:

    Chevy quality has gone down. The fenders on the box like to rust out early.

    Crown undercoat that bad boy it will last forever!!!

    Wow I just watched a 33min ad for a 16min video. Did any one else get the chrome ad? Only for you SMA would I not skip ads lol. By the way good video.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars aaronshandc says:

    Ok I purchased a new 2014 Silverado 1500 and it was a tank. We pulled a 9000 lb Surveyor 35 foot all over these united states with the ecotech 5.3 and it was a beast. Never broke at all and we traded it at 60000 miles and bought the duramax that has also never left me stranded. Had a 1999 2500 with 320000 on the clock and never had to do and engine or tranny rebuild. Dad had an old 79 custom deluxe that the speedometer quit on after 2 times over a 100000 and we drove it for years after. I know there are lemons in all brands but I have never bought a junk Chevy. Your still my hero on mechanics but on your opinions of Chivy's I would agree with you or we would both be wrong 😉

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cesar Ramos says:

    Who’s dumb enough to buy a truck without running boards?
    The chevy guy I’m guessing

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jmurphy1973 says:

    Yep, it'll come back all pigeon-toed in a year or so.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Grumpy's Garage says:

    If he was going to keep it, it should be sent to Krowne so it doesn’t rot so bad in 2 years

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Berkey says:

    Those running boards will soon be returning to nature in the form of iron oxide. I've seen hundreds of those just completely rotted away – from the inside.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Smitty Smithsonite says:

    Yeah, you'd think they'd include the damn things for $50 LARGE! Probably just as well, because if they did, they'd be half moons in 3  years, and fold in half when your big buddy steps on on it. I'd imagine that would be a good hit to the knee … 😀

     

    I put a set of Westins on my Silverado back when it was new. That set has been sitting in my yard for 2 years now, after some jackalope sideswiped me in the city. No rust at all on them – real stainless. The hardware however is a different story.

     Same with my Corsa exhaust – stainless pipe, with chinese steel hardware. Par for the 21st Century course!!

    I weigh 160 lbs. as I walk out the door, and mine flex and bend like crazy with my weight on them. Built like beer cans, these trucks today!!

    Nothing says, hello ladies, like lights on your steps! Lol

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars azurebluemach says:

    "Hello ladies" 😂😂

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Died 4 US says:

    A 2015 with broken front end parts, it's either a junk built ride, or he went airborne to break the springs. I saw a wreck once where a blazer hit some slush and got pulled in and ended up going through a ditch, and went about a foot in the air and when it landed, it broke the front ball joints, and the springs. I would have fixed all the broken stuff before paying for this junky looking kit. Love your videos, God bless you and the family.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Denzil Ritchie says:

    I hope the owner went the extra expense and got the good stainless side steps. I installed a set a few years ago that wasn't stainless and I regretted it within just a few months.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Curiosity says:

    For the money spent on the truck he should have spent a bit more money on this unit. Even the shady ladies won't fall for this setup. Could've had stainless attached to the Swiss but didn't. Kids today..

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Trombino says:

    Those things don't last long around here, especially the rocker/body panel mounted nerf bars.. I you HAVE to have those steppers, spring for the 1's that mount to the frame. ( some brands do both )

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hqn12 says:

    Eric, I love ur videos, but why do u keep saying flat washers? Lol aren't all washers flat??!! Hope u don't mind my question. Ur videos are phenomenal, keep up the good work EricO.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maindrian Pace says:

    Just have the crazy Canadians spray their WD-40 all over it, no mo rust.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars da teatorjr says:

    I give them three years before they rot.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robinson's Motorcycle and Auto Entertainment Zone says:

    Your Hilarious thanks for making the video

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars UBBERTANKER says:

    the factory ones bolt on like that never seen one broke off, we replace alot of the factory boards for chrome corrosion under warranty though

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sterling stephens says:

    Did the same job on a 2016 tundra,holes already there

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars justin hiromoto says:

    So the Milwaukee electric ratchet makes its way to SMA👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars nick e says:

    Deeez nuts

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan L says:

    Those new body style trucks are super prone to NVH issues. I advise against the frame running boards because I have in one case seen them cause a small vibration. The vibration was able to travel through the step brackets to the body mounts and you would feel a vibration in the floor at certain highway speeds. Call me crazy but it went away after removing them.
