    First time Toyota owner and I am very happy with the switch so far. I do have a question, I have searched the internet and can’t find a kit to lower my boards .. I don’t like where they currently sit.. any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks! IMG_1562255267.735201.jpg

    Ive seen those steps on many tacos, I think they don't even look right being that high not only basically useless. Mine came with the preditor steps which aren't perfect but at least useful. I doubt you'll find a relocation kit to purchase. Best bet might be to look for a fabrication guy and have him make you a set of brackets to lower them to where you want them. And then as a side note, patent them, you could probably sell the brackets faster than you could get them made. Those are nice looking boards, just in the wrong place.

    I think most non-stop step boards sit like that. Mine do. I just got used to ducking a little after I step up to get in. 20190704_171443.jpg

    Are you talking about the height or the placing of the step pad if its the step pad I'd have to say switch sides the larger pad should be at the front door

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Probably have to get new ones that sit how you want them to.
    If you were a fabricator you could make some brackets that would drop it. You might be able to hire someone to do that but it might cost as much as getting new ones and selling these.
    Good luck.
