I think so. Your truck had just been left stranded with the broken radius arm so you were on camera duty.

Hahaha. Those are not steps, those are rock sliders. They dont move. At all. I currently have my truck on jack stands....... on them.

I guess your wondering if they move because there is so much room between them and the rocker panel? Well, back when i made them I had the brilliant idea of trying to repair my rockers so i built them so that I would have clearance to do so.
