Ahh...power steps, haven't heard them called that before. Yeah, those are really nice....and expensive I've seen. I wouldn't mind having them on my truck, but i'm still young and don't mind jumping/falling in and out....:)

Nice, but I could think about a lot more other things I would like to spend $1200 on first for the truck :D . Mine came with the factory bars already, works for me. But its kind of nice that it retracks up & hidden.

Yeah anything cool that retracts like that is awesome. I would only invest money in them if my truck was crazy tall and I didn't want the look of step bars hanging way down all the time........i'd love to have them now, but that's a bend over price...

A buddy has had them on a ford for about three years now and no problems, and with the doors closed they are inviseble. It's a nice touch on a new truck, but pricy. good luck with the new ride:D

Have you considered power steps that are made for a motor home RV? They would only fit for one door each due to their design though.

Guys,
I also have a long bed crew cab and wish to find someone that sells what has been called "Wheel to Wheel" for this long bed. I see a lot of them advertised, but they are only for the short bed. Maybe I'm asking too much to actually have them fill the gap between the two axles. I just measured and from the rear of the front wheel well to the front of the rear well, I measure roughly 125". I say roughly because I was measuring by myself.
I emailed the Westin truck accessory company and a rep replied that they don't make anything for the long bed.
Any suggestions? I wish to have the SS tubular with three steps. I really don't have the $$$ for the moving steps as described in this thread.
Thanks

Westin's has wheel well to wheel well boards and Putco has 4" one's also, but they are very pricey.

Thanks, I'll try the putco. I've communicated with Westin, and their W2W bars are for only the short bed.
