Extension Brackets for Running Boards install
Last winter I had a heck of a time with the Running Boards on my Larait. The are in too close to the truck to allow me to get good footing on them especially with some snow and ice build up on them and work/snow boots on. So I didn't spend the money on Amp Research running boards but instead spent about $20 and moved the running board out a little. this is the before picture....and below that is the picture of the brackets that I made. I used 1/8" X 1 1/2" angle iron that I picked up at Lowes/Home Depot. The brackets are 6" long, (3) 11/32" holes spaced evenly at 1 15/16" and on centerline of angle iron.
