First Major mod - side steps

I have found side steps from stainless steel there is also an aluminium variant , i asked jeep service for installation but they were overbooked with repairs and they said they are free in 2 weeks , no patience for that so i took the matter in my own hand and easy easy in 4-5 hours i managed to do it myself without any damage to the car

Now i'm researching for a bull bar/nudge bar but no success there is nothing anywhere



will post more pics later

Good Job!
They look very nice and should help prevent rock chips and such.

not for the aft door but normally most front doors are not curved and lets remember the 20cm of height of the jeep i tested with my audi a3 and the door hit the steps first well i didnt said 100% but will avoid most driver doors.

btw if anyone gets them or similar i can help with instruction for an easy installation, because you have to remove the original bottom side protection.
