Apparently I have too much time on my hands and it’s definitely time for some Pineapple Pizza!!!

here are some pictures to get an idea of how big the step into the cab will be. Some show a person standing by the door as a reference.

My better half is 6' 1" and all legs. I'm the one that's going to be struggling at 5' 9" with short limbs. Could be worse, though.

I lowered a Miata 1.25", so I'm pretty used to terrible ingress/egress.

<--- I climbed that thing, all 450 feet of it. Pretty sure I'll make it into the Bronco.

Unless you are over 50, you wont get why anyone would worry about. After 50, even for someone like me who works out plays singles tennis 5 days a week, it is kind of a pain in the butt. My wife at 5'3" will need a boost to get in. lol.

I’m not far from 50 :)
Lots of in and out might be a pain, but I guess it’ll be leg day everyday.

I'm 5'5" with short legs and and a large wingspan. This is why I asked Ford to make the grab bars orange on the BL.

Sadly my Dad probably won't be able to get in because of mobility issues

We went out and measured our trucks and the steps recently to compare to the Bronco height. My hubby's truck has bigger tires and is higher than my truck. I think his is about equivalent to the sasquatch height. He has mud tires and an offroad package and the bottom of the door is about 21" off the ground. On both of our trucks, the step is 4" below the door. I would assume the Bronco step will be the same since it looks exactly like my hubby's step, but with Bronco logos. I am 5' tall and I can get into his truck with no problem.
