Unless you have the legs of a giraffe, getting in and out of the back of the vehicle is going to be a challenge and it’ll wear the knees of your trousers out.
Not a Genuine Land Rover part, this one comes from Bearmach, (a step up in quality from Britpart) The kit seems to be quite robust but the paint finish isn’t that great and I can see rust forming sooner rather than later. That said, it’s now possible to get in and out of the back easily.
Series vehicles were also fitted with similar side steps to aid ingress and egress from the front seat but these are not allowed in Switzerland.
Next task was to fit the rubber buffer to the cross member. The kit of parts came with an M6 rivnut, so the chassis will need to be drilled to fit the aluminium insert. An M6 rivnut requires an 8.5mm hole to be drilled. I don’t have a drill bit this size, so I drilled 8mm and using a rats tail file, enlarged the hole to 8.5mm
