Who makes small 'step' to help short people enter S-10 pickup

We have a Chevy S-10 ext. cab pick-up with the special package that has bigger tires, etc. My husband purchased rails to make entry easier for me, but they did not hold up, and since he is the primary user of the truck and didn't use them, he took them off. I am only 5'3" and have a problem getting in the passenger side. Does anyone make a small step around 6" in length to attach to a truck instead of the long rails/running boards? The picture I have in my mind is in the shape of a 'staple', or a flat bottom 'U'. I did a web search and only found the rails/runningboards. If nothing is available I guess I will come up with a little step stool with a long handle to keep in the truck. My back lets me know each time I have hoisted myself on to the passenger seat. If I need to drive the truck I use the steering wheel to help me, but I am sure that is not what the steering wheel was designed to accomplish.

Thank you. Jane

Not hard to find exactly what you described at all. Check with NAPA auto parts or any other parts store.
