It is too short (On my '04 ) as many threads, that I searched, pointed out. Not really a big problem. What I need is something that will add a piece to the bottom of the stand so my shoe/boot can catch it to let it down. That thing is slick and not enough meat to really get a hold of it. Any ideas? I've seen those add on pads that slide onto the bottom for soft sand so it won't bottom out and fall over. Anyone use one of those? If it is secure when it goes on and won't easily bump off when the foot grabs it, it might just do the job. Appreciate any help.
