Adding a folding rear step to an 05 FX HO Cruiser?
Can you add a folding rear step to a 2005 FX High Output Cruiser? My wife is having a little trouble getting back on in the middle of the lake. If anyone has done it, can you post some pics too? Thanks!

Here is a link to a reboarding step that should fit your model, you will need to make sure. I ordered one from
Very low prices, but slooowww, DHL, shipping .
I was going to install it myself, but I couldn't bring myself to drill a brand new boat with this being my first ski.
I paid my dealer $100 for install. After watching him do it, I could have handled it. You will need an assistant if you do it yourself.
Hope this helps, Good Luck.

Thanks for the website! What exactly did the dealer have to do to install it? Did you install it on a 2005? Did it come with all of the mounting brackets and everything? Thanks again!

I had it installed on a '08 VX Crusier, it comes with detailed instructions, all brackets and hardware. Each kit is custom made for your particular boat, and is complete.
The reason you need a helper is putting the bolts on the bracket inside the boat while holding the step on the outside at the same time. Long skinny arms help too !
