You guys are trying to get me in trouble with the ‘ole lady. I do want them. I’ve gotta give it a few months at least though. I’m already getting the stink eye every time FedEx shows up at my door and it’s not for her ;-), and I’m expecting them again today and Friday already......Hahahaha

The factory ones do not drop like the Amps (or the Ferds) and really lose the benefit of the much better step height that gives you. Plus those factory ones are more visible under there. I am sort of surprised that they did not use something more like the amps. I thought the Escalades had a drop down one but is thicker looking than what the aftermarket Amps are.

Hahahaha. You right. Only problem with that is she does too good of job with it herself. I swear it seems like both FedEx and UPS come to my house every day. I’m pretty much on first name basis with my drivers as I work remotely from a home office. Might should just give them a key so they can leave things inside and not at the front door should I not be here during delivery times or on a work call or something. Hahaha

Actually, yes, I’m wanting to add a catch can. Researching them now. Any suggestions on what brand is best? I’m open to ideas on what I should buy and install. I’ve only spent about half an hour researching them.
