Simple pickup accessories
Boot Puller - "It was such a strain on my back to pull off my overboots that I came up with this idea," says Hood, who simply bent a length of steel rod into a "U" shape and welded it to the back of a short piece of angle iron. He tack-welded the puller to the running board of his pickup so he could easily slip his boots off before climbing inside. "You could mount it anywhere around the farm," he notes.
Bumper Step-Up - "My Ford F-250 3/4 ton 4-WD pickup is quite a bit higher off the ground than a regular pickup so it's hard to step up onto the tailgate from the ground. This step makes it easy," says Hood. He made the rounded step out of steel rod and welded it to the end of a rod that hangs from a hole in the bumper. When not in use, the step slides back into the bumper out of the way.
