I thought this was neat - Dudley Walsh's 2002 van with a step that extends automatically when the door is opened and closes when the sliding door closes even when the key is off. The installation is such that the step almost disappears and looks OEM. Dudley did the electronics and contracted the mechanical installation.

Door open:
57447
Door closed:
57448
Street view
57449
Underneath mechanics. Note the plate the arms attach to - sized for the proper drop and strength. I think that there is another plate mounted under the black plastic step.
