Bully steps

Hey guys is anyone running the bully style steps on their e series vans? Like the idea on not having the long bar, just not sure what it would look like

As in their hoop steps? If so, yes, I have 3 on my van (and the fourth on my cargo trailer.) They're nearly identical to the much more common Carr hoop steps, you might try a google image search of "carr hoop step site:www.sportsmobileforum.com"

Haven't had any luck finding pictures. I have seen lots of talk but can't find any photos installed on the van. Thanks for the name idea. I'll find some pictures if I keep digging!

Hi, I'm just in the process of finding one for my e150. I think it will look much better than the running boards it had. My problem is with attaching the step. The panel it would attach to is quite thin. Fine for long running boards with 6 attachment points, but for one point of contact the (prototype) step flexes scarily.
All i can think of for a solution is to run a long piece of sturdy metal, like an L section the length of the van, to disperse the point of attachment.
Do you think you'll have this issue?
Is there an easier solution?

Mine are held on with a bolt/nut through the pinch weld, and a #10 self taper into the back of the rocker box above that. Yes, they flex. I was going to run a single diagonal brace from the lower mounting bolt, upwards towards the frame rail (landing on whatever body protrusion was convenient) but just never made it a priority. That being said, I'm creeping up on 240lbs and they haven't failed me yet (3-4 years now.) I did set the van down on the passenger side rear step (I'm used to a bit better breakover angle... oops!) and tweaked it a bit, but it didn't pull off, nor did it break.

Be careful where you put 'em. On the back door, it may be better to place it where you'll step out, not in.
