I did this as well, makes them so much better. Not sure why factory puts them so close.

I can try and get some tomorrow when I pull out of the garage. I bought 8 of these and bolted my steps to them and then bolted them to stock brackets

I used 1/8 which are fine but flex a little if front and back seat people step on at same time. I would recommend 1/4 inch angle iron and drilled my own holes. You need 2 feet. 2 6 inch pieces per side.
