Having seen and sat in an SAS OBX today at Rausch Creek yesterday, I just don't see the need for these or steps.
I am 5.5" tall and I stepped into it with zero issues.
The Bronco did have steps, but they actually got in my way as they forced me to step over them. IMHO, it would have been better to not have them.

I would have liked to see a video of you climbing in an out. My wife is 5.5 and the Sasquatched Badlands will be her DD. I'm especially wondering about her trying to do it in a dress. While I'm open to some kind of step it would be nice if we didn't have to.

I went to look at a base Bronco with the Sasquatch package yesterday. Being used to driving a car, getting into the Bronco was a bit awkward for me, I think steps like this will be great especially when I have to wear a suit for work.

I have a 29" inseam and do not wear dresses.
:ROFLMAO:

Maybe it's because I am used to getting in and out of this.
The bottom of my door opening it at the same height as the top of my 37" tires.

But also look at the height of the bottom of the frame mounted slider. I feel like the Bronco is at least 1 foot lower

It’s pretty easy if you don’t want or need them. Maybe don’t buy them? 😅🤣

I was wondering that as I had that issue on a regular OBX. I'm 5'11" and the steps were a nuisance. I haven't seen a Sasquatch in person unfortunately.

nice, but prefer non-moving parts, tends to last longer. looks sick though
Hyped. By the looks, even if the motor breaks, it is still functional as a rock slider and it protrudes (unlike factory) so you can get to the roof without standing on the door sill. I have a short wife, daughter and mother-in-law and need steps. This serves all functions without having a step that hangs down to get hung up on an obstacle.

Some close up shots of how the logo is attached. I’ll probably ask if they can make mine without attaching the logo plates. If not, the rivets will have to be drilled out

These are absolutely epic and we have installed well over 150 sets here at Doetsch Off-Road on well-used Wrangler & Gladiator rigs including my last 3. Theyve survived every trail in Moab multiple times, even a full weight drop off a 3' boulder.

I will have them on all 4 of my SEMA builds and will be doing a pe-sale on these just prior to the show.

Let us know when your pre-sale goes up! You’ve got quite a few fans here!

I'm wondering if they would powder-coat the badge black? That might work for me. Otherwise it would come off, yeah.

Agreed that would work too. It’s a nice logo but it stands out too much. I prefer an OEM look
