"Easy Step" Bolts Under Bumper
Climbing into the bed of a 4-WD truck gets harder as you get older. That's why Gunnar Nordal came up with his "easy step" bumper attachment.
"I'm in my 70's, and one slip can cause a lot of trouble," says Nordal, a retired farmer. "When I picked up some pieces of 1 by 1-in. stainless steel tubing at a salvage yard, I decided to use them on my bumper."
He cut two pieces to run under the length of the bumper. There's a bend at the end of each piece. He welded tabs that bolt to the receiver hitch and short uprights that bolt to the bumper.
"The whole thing probably cost less than $10, and I can remove them in minutes if I need to."
