OK so go ahead and laugh, I'm at work and only have a sec to jot down this idea. I personally hate the hoop step look and it can catch on things, what I would like to see someone make is as follows in my very realistic artwork below.
so basically a slider (can be simplified to tube type or more of a solid slider) angled at around 45 degrees and a whole big hoop type step would pull up and angle down to a step looking similar to what Aluminess sells in the open position. Then to close you would just lift it upward and slide it into closed position tucked out of the way, maybe with some sort of simple spring loaded stainless pin that holds it closed towards the rear tire area to keep it cleaner from mud and road debris. Hopefully my vision makes sense, I should have drawn it better but hey it can at least get the wheels rolling, what do you all think, let's design this together.
