these steps are really easy once you learn how to do them... in order to help you i will need to know if you have a crew cab or ex cab.... they are almost the same, but there is more work and more guessing on the ex cab.

It is the extended cab,
Thanks!!! :shake:
you will need 2 jacks if you are by yourself.. put the step up to the bottom of the body, center the pipes between the front and rear tires, then mark all 6 of the holes. then drill them out, and mount the Nfabs... i wish i had pictures.

here is the best picture i have, see the drilled holes? There are six holes to drill, four are relativly close together, then the last two towards the rear of the truck. You just put it in where you like it, mark the holes and drill, use a smaller bit first then go up to a larger one for the bolts.

try a jack if you are talking about the mounting hole, and if you are worried about the floorpan part, some just dont touch. there are 6 bolts in the system on each side, if one doesnt have a washer, it wont really affect it.

no the middle bracket that is supposed to touch the pinch weld doesnt even touch, it just is not sitting flush with that lip on the bottom of the body where you are supposed to drill and mount :flame:

take it off, and hammer it to where it is supposed to be. the brackets flex when welded some times.
