I'm looking at purchasing boarding steps for the Ranger. Trick Step & Easy Step are the 2 companies most heard about, are there more options out there besides custom fabrication?

IT's hard to go wrong with Trick-Step, especially for a Ranger since they have great customization for a lot of Ranger models.

I have to agree: [Linked Image]
I certainly understand the need for aftermarket boarding products especially as the years add up on our bodies(ME!) but honestly I can’t come up with a better way to board my trailered Ranger 521 than stepping up on the big trailer sidestep by the fender and throwing my leg over the gunnel on the passenger side and stepping in the boat right in front of the boats passenger seat. Kinda like climbing on a horse. Of course not all trailers are built/shaped the same. Maybe the day is coming that this method won’t work anymore!

I finally got the trick step for my ranger. Not sure why I waited so long. I LOVE it.

Thanks everyone. I fish solo mostly anymore, so instead of rolling in & out like a walrus, steps would be nice. Der Vorsteher, really like the look & build of the Easy Step. Think I'll give 'em a call.
