This is for Bully brand, model BBS-1103 black side step bars. A pair comes in the box, about $50 on Amazon, /ref=p...

I'd give you a picture of them on the truck if I had hosting space for images.

Or if this forum did ...

Without any of the wedges or extra brackets these line up with the '90s Chevy's space for them (refer to Group D instructions in the installation guide). I installed one pair on a 2-dr (regular cab) model.

You'll need a SHORT 1/4" drill bit or right-angle adapter for your drill, to create the top holes. And do SKIP the included Phillips head screws for the top holes. Get 5/16 x 1" lag bolts and just slowly work them in with your ratchet. You might want to use the extra included washers here, or not.

1/4" lag bolts almost work, but the holes you made with the 1/4" drill bit were probably less than perfect and so a 1/4" lag bolt or sheet screw will be too loose. Get your lag bolts snug but not super duper tight or else they, too, will begin to just spin. THEN tighten the main bolts/nuts at the bottom.

Thanks for that link; I guess it's an information page about it (I don't have permission to read it, ironically.)

I see the membership info page here:
