    When I get my Power Wagon I would like to add some step in bars or step in boards.

    But I am wondering why the PW don't come with 'em. Is there some sort of reason I am not thinking about.........like are they bad for off roading?

    They can limit some obstacle angles

    They typically don't Take getting smashed and bashed well either

    I agree. Ground clearance is the biggest issue. But all ya gotta do is raise the truck. :D

    I find having them is pretty handy.

    Looks like they gotcha covered! Haha. Basically, decide on how much off roading you'll be doing to decide if you want to get the steps.

    These are nice. Only thing I didn't like about them is that they mount to the pinch weld, not the frame. And for the price, I'm sure you could find a local weld shop to custom make you some.
