    Fog light rewire- debadge- front window tint- 5100's @ 1.75- Toytec 1.5 AAL- Avid sliders- 4x4 lighted switch- Sockmonkey decals- Truxedo low pro QT cover- Weather Techs- Back up light Mod. Diff. breather mod. OEM roof rack-Yakima bars. HomerTaco grill. Hella Black Magic Lts. WT vent visors.
    I measured mine (bolt on Avid) they're about 3 1/2" below the door sill, and stick out about 3 1/2" from the sill. Not a lot of step surface, but if she has small feet?

    I've got Avid sliders and they stick out far enough to work well as steps. Here are some pics:
