Bargain Side Steps!

Recommended Posts

Just Fitted a set of steps I bought off Ebay and gave the car a mini detail. Just thought I'd share the results with you and get your honest opinions.

They fitted ok once i'd sussed how they attached (it said nothing in the instructions about putting the plate with bolt welded to it into the hole in the chassis rail). Very wierd compared to anything else I've fitted...

Anyway, here are the results - sorry about the crap photos, they were taken with my iPhone.

Yes very smart + I note you can still retain frt mudflaps, which apparently you can't with the latest Toyota ones :unsure: Stew

I reckon you shouldn't but all I did was undo the rear screw athe bottom and rob an inch by bending the bottom forwards slightly. I have about an inch between the rear end if the step and the rear tyre. Plenty room...

Otherwise it would foul the rear tyre.

The car came as is when I bought it (bar the steps of course) so afraid I can't help you. I think they were part of an option pack, along with the full width boot sill protector, a winter or protection pack maybe?!? I'm sure someone will know for definate...

IIRC, they were about 70 quid from T-dealer (for just the side/door strips). Parts-King will sort yuo out with a special price if you PM him :) ...and DaveM did a useful tutorial on how to fit them.

They do also come as a part of the "protection pack". In the PP, you also get some tiny bits of rubber that you stick to corners of your bumbpers. I was told not to bother with those as they easily fall off.

Really nice side-steps, by the way. :thumbsup:

Cheers!

I must have the protection pack then as I have the corner bits too. Fortunately non have fallen off yet!

The boot lip protector looks different to others I have seen also but does look like a proper Toyota part...
