Looking at purchasing a trail boss but after taking one for a drive I felt it was a big step in, I am not really concerned about it for myself but my wife may grow tired of jumping up into the truck and we also have two small kids. 

I was looking at adding the gm rectangular assist step with the deal but I am not sure if that will help the step up into the truck, or if I am better off going with some hoop side steps that come down a little more.  If there is anyone out there with a trail boss with side steps do they make entering and exiting the vehicle easier? Pics would be great.

i am used to getting into my 2500hd with the factory side steps so I figured this would be pretty similar I just can not find a trail boss at the dealer with side steps to try it out. 

 

Thanks

I have the rough country running boards in my trail boss, and they certainly helped make the vehicle easier to get in and out of. My 7 year old is able to jump in and out without assistance now.

The rough country are much cheaper, and match the appearance of the trail boss much better than the oe running boards, imho at least. IMG_20190224_124349.jpg

I prefer the tubular version. I have had the flat version on vehicles in the past, and they always seemed to catch a bunch of road debris.

I have the same ones on my TB. Definitely make getting in and out easier.

I like both of those options a little better.  I live in the up peninsula of Michigan and they use a lot of salt on the roads so I am not sure how those would hold up.  I have the same step as the rough country ones on my silverado now but they are stainless steel so I don't have to worry about rust.

I looked at some aluminum options from DeeZee that looked pretty nice though.  The tubular ones definitly look a little more fitting.

truck.jpg.e592a1725c2fb97cd20b96bd47d3af49.jpgI like my flat running boards , As for dirt I have cleaner and rags to wipe down every other day. I got into a bad habit of not useing them to excit the truck,and this will surely wreck the seat . My bad habit will change this weekend

My steps have saved my truck many times.. entry and exit is definitely easier with assist steps.

 

GM factory "off-road" style step.

Everyone's Trail Boss looks really nice, I am partial to the Satin Steel, I was wondering how you think the finish is on the Black OE step bars.  I thought the round ones were steel and the flat ones like I showed in my top pic were possibly aluminum.  I would really like somthing that can withstand all the winter abuse without being shining (stainless steel).  Any input would be great.

Here in Canada lots of snow and ice so flat I think is better for slippery ice  . Also the flat Satin is so easy to clean . A bit of cleaning spray and a wipe and all good.  Also bought a small umpire brush to simply sweep out debris from floor mat.This model year has no ledge to stop debris from being swept out. Great feature no vacuum required
