    I want to add hoop steps to my truck. I was looking at my LMC Truck catalog and it said that you can't mount hoop steps on an 85 Chevy that has side mounted gas tanks (which mine does). Anyone know if this is true? And if it is how can I mount steps on the truck then?! Do I have to move my gas tanks or is there another way?

    Thanks everyone.

    Hoop steps mount to the inner rocker which I personally do not like and will never ever put them on my truck.

    Also yes gas tanks go get in the way but people just move them forward more towards the front of the door instead of the middle of the door.

    Honestly hoops look dumb.

    Ahh just the single step on each side. I don't mind how they look on a truck with a good amount of lift but other than that ehh, depends which style you want I suppose. The ones ive seen are basically mounted more towards the front about where it would line up with the front of the seat.
