This is my 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 with an automatic transmission and the 6BT Cummins engine. It is a little rough, with plenty of ‘needs’ to be done. One thing had been bothering me since I resurrected it from an early grave - the aluminum side steps.

Makes a world of difference right? It actually looks like a truck and not some 2wd-ish old man driven pharmacy-runner. Annoyingly I did end up pulling out the angle grinder as one of the carriage bolts began spinning when removing the nut.

I’ll end up finding a more modern and sleeker running board for the truck in the future. I enjoyed the utility of the running boards but, I’m certainly not at an age where I need them... yet.
