Looks solid to me.

The weight you are is balanced by the pull downward on the door latch and the door jamb, creating a solid platform to support the advertised weight.

I trust Toyota with my own and my family's lives, that door jamb can take a hit.

My question is how does a dude that is 6'6" fit in a 4Runner? I'm only 6' at 195lbs and this cabin feels tiny to me. Granted, my work truck is Ram 2500.

I find my Trail to be pretty comfortable. I did want the Premium at first, and ordered a white one when the salesman told me the sunroof only caused a half inch reduction in headroom. Of course he was wrong, and I couldn't drive that without either hitting my head on the ceiling or leaning back like Ice Cube in the Good Day video.

Right, I wouldn't be concerned about bending the actual striker. I'd be more concerned with bending the sheetmetal that the striker is attached to. I'd imagine it'd be fairly easy to distort the area around the striker with repeated vertical loading. It wouldn't take more than a mm or two to **** up the alignment.

There is a backing plate in there. You arenít bending that latch or the sheet metal.
Only issue would be if you shut the door with it still in there.

The Moki step was on Shark Tank the other night. One of the makers is a fire fighter talked about how much force it takes to pry open a door cause of the catch I think he said 2,200 pounds sure there is a YouTube of it. Seems pretty cool.

I believe they are referring to lateral loads, not longitudinal loads

Why risk damage though? Be it to the door or yourself. Both would be very expensive fixes. Just get step rails or step on the lower door jamb.

Bending the latch or the pillar is a completely false fear. The latches are super strong, the area they are attached to is reinforced and besides they're the body pillars. Body-on-frame designs in the 60s may just have been a tin can attached to a frame but today due to safety testing and regulations they're built very similar to a unit-body. The pillars are the important parts of the crash structure and so are like I said before: beastly strong. You'd have a hard time doing significant damage with a sledge-hammer.

So when I saw this thread the other day I went ahead and ordered a cheapie. Here is my review:

This is the unit I bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CQWKK7X

The two aluminum structures (hook and step) are quite thick and obviously easily beefy enough to support a person. The hinge is a steel pin - 1/8" or so. The hook is designed in such a way that there is absolutely no way for it to come unhooked when loaded.

Once hooked it is quite solid and steady. There's no wobble or flex at all and the step is plenty big. I go about 190lbs. Due to the design of the pillars it works a lot better on the front doors than the rear. On the rear doors it's quite high and sits at an angle. So it's a bit awkward and puts the roofline just above the knee.

The instructions read as follows:

"Ues (sic) this Doorstep you can put all your bulky items on car rooftop or rack without any struggle as to make full use of in-car space, and enjoy a wonderful journey with all necessary items along with you."

It also carries this reassuring Lifetime guarantee:

"We stand by the quality of our exercise bands, and if they don't work out for you for any reason then send it back to us for your full money back. We know you will love them."

@MossJenks thanks for the update! The video on the Amazon listing is hilarious. It looks like they couldn't decide whether to make a car step commercial or soft core p0rn movie that day

I have purchased and used this a few times.. Nice thing is it fits where the OEM jack sits, on the bottom.

Well I had to watch it.

a) she's got RBF like a mofo. What an ugly hot girl.

b) who da fuq keeps a lightweight jacket in a roof box when the entire interior of the car is clearly empty? She's literally like some t4r members... finds a bullshit use for something she doesn't need just to justify having bought it!
