WTB - side ladder

I'm probably going to pull the trigger and buy a new one from aluminess, but wanted to see if anyone had a side ladder (preferably driver side) that they wanted to part with for a 2006 Ford E350. Drop me a line.

2006 Red RB50 with SMB 4x4, 6.0 Diesel, PH Top, etc.

Don't forget to take advantage of the Aluminess offer:

Re: WTB - side ladder

For comparison, I put a JC Whitney ladder on mine. I like the Aluminess quality but it's out of range for my remodel. I had to sand, prime with a metal etching primer, paint, and drill holes in my door. That said, total cost was well under $100.

The ladder seems solid. Much like the rear tire mount (directly to the door), the door is solid (three points) when closed. I wouldn't climb it when the door was open.

Another issue with this is that I need to install a door swing stop so the ladder will not chip the paint when the door opens too far.

All penetrations are bedded in butyl (sp) tape.
