Body Armor to the rescue
When I installed the new tires I went from 265/70/R16 to 265/75/R16. Doesn't sound like much and doesn't affect the speedometer significantly, but my found it harder to get into the truck as it was about 1 1/2" taller. So I installed steps to assist her.
They are strong enough that I can lift the truck with a jack under them if I need to. Only complaint was the screws that hold the thresholds secure started rusting after a few days, so I added several coats of a rust coating paint followed by plastidip.
