Ordered these, curious to see how tight they run to the body and hopefully not stick out as much, seems more like a slider/ running board design. Haven't seen them on a Ranger but on an F-150 they seem to tuck in quite a bit, hoping for the same.

Got them off Amazon so I can return them if they look silly or seem flimsy.

The wife said she wanted a step (she is 4’10”) so I immediately ordered a set from REALTRUCK. They arrived with some shipping damage. I contacted REALTRUCK to discuss my options. After sending them some pictures, REALTRUCK filed a claim with the shipping company and is sending me another set of steps. I am impressed with REALTRUCK’s customer service, which was very quick during the busy holiday season. I’ll post pictures as soon as the steps are installed.

Give them credit for the cool name! A picture after install would be nice...

Yeah I know right, they at least have some pics of them on an F-150. So long as they are close to that amount of tucked in they should be good. Quality and durability will be the test...

I'll have to send them some post install pics for their website so us Ranger kids will know.

Hmmm, kind of funky looking, I like it, but we'll see on a Ranger.... not much step surface there, but I don't use my Go Rhino RB10's that much, I usually step over them. There's just enough for my wife to use, though (she hasn't complained yet anyway). Mine set pretty high, against the truck, and do stick out more, which I like. I already heard some "clunks" when parking lot idiots opened their doors, I panicked, until I realized they are hitting the running boards. Good protection. I got them because at first I thought they looked like Raptor boards.

Yeah, I think the idea for the rear of the board is extra step room for need access and also being a slider type it kicks out in front of the rear tire in case its actually being used as a slider and away from the wheel. I really don't need or will use them as a true step, just think the truck looks funny with nothing there and I will hit some local passes here in CO so a little protection. slide ability should be nice. That's an added benefit, they should market them as door ding protection!

Haha, I was looking backwards, make sure you put them on the right way (I thought the wide part was in front ? duh)

Hey Ric. I looked up that part number on real truck and it said it wouldn’t fit a ranger? I’ve been looking at other n-fab ones, those look good too. Would be interested to see how they fit.

The steps I ordered were:

The holes lined up perfectly with my 2019 SuperCrew but I’m waiting for a set that ain’t banged up.
