My intention on my build was to start there but perhaps evolve to making/modify a set of collapsing steps (same type of mechanism of folding) but have the upper rail connect to the flatbed securely so they don't kick out/tip if stepped on wrong.
Edit, if the legs don't work out because where the tire is (I forget how much they stick out the back, then trimming those off and just hooking the handle on some hooks off your flatbed rail might work). ~$35 starting point to consider. 3 steps $35 at lowes Verse probably over $200 for folding aluminum steps and more useful (if you don't need to trip the leg)

FYI: I've got a bunch of extra 14ga wire in red and black. Its a thick jacket 41strand wire (likely MTW wire) verse typical 19strand automotive wire. It has good flexibility but factor in the thick jacket. I'll ship out 100' coils for $18 (I can go 50' of ea for that too) if anyone is in need of wire.
