Steps come in various lengths and footprints, and are made from all kinds of different materials. You can find steps made of steel, chrome, aluminum, diamond plate and injection-molded plastic. Some of the plastic ones can be painted to match the color of your vehicle. All side steps have some type of non-skid surface; some feature a wraparound rubber tread area. If you like to see where you are stepping at night, you can get a step with a built-in light. (What will they think of next?) Finally, the size of a step depends on who needs to climb into your vehicle. But just so you know, a larger footprint works better for people in high-heels. (Nudge, nudge; wink, wink.)
