I like the crane.
I like that step. I think I'll get my metal guy to cut mine off and weld on one of those
We already knew that...
The carpet idea could work, if you're committed to pressure washing it every day. Until you've had a sticky surface at the back of a box truck you have no idea how much guck gets sucked up from the road.
Grip tape is great on a flat surface, but will not adhere well to diamond plate. It will peel of in chunks.
Do not use the Rustoleum spray-on bed liner! It's brittle and doesn't adhere well. I think it's meant to be used where you want the look of a tough surface, but never have anything contact that surface. Herculiner or one of the other roll-on bed liners would be better for the purpose. Might be worth checking with a local Line-X guy to get a price to coat the bumper, that stuff is tough and has a pretty grippy surface. (Note, you'll never be able to completely rinse detergent spills out of it.)
Maybe try shoes with a grippy sole, or be like Mikey and just parkour roll in and out.
I don’t see mikey doing this move
Should I just sprinkle some sand in the Hurculiner when I roll it on? From your description, that seems like the best route
Drill holes in it in a fancy pattern where you step.
Holy moly Matty boy, do as @Old Coastie said...Even a broken watch is correct twice a day... 4 pages and still no solution?!?
I hope you vagina can handle...
I’m just here to entertain you
you're just over thinking it
material used for catwalks and steel stairs comes in a variety grid/grate patterns .
From super aggressive spike hole/grid (like in post #23) to flat steel rectangle grid
don't reckon you have much snow/ice to deal with, so the aggressive spike grid like #23 isn't needed
Hell.....bolt one of these down and be done with it
Or always use the handle.
That’s what I’m scared of doing. Slipping while I’m holding the handle and pulling my shoulder out of socket. Both my shoulders have been injured at separate times which makes them easy to pull out. Extremely painful
