For anyone who has fitted these particular side bars. How easy was it & what do you bolt tounderneath? Do you bolt "through" the floor itself or like onto the chassis or something i.e. do you have to lift internal carpets etc?? Did you also have to do any filing/cutting of the brackets etc?

Any info much appreciated


Regards


Chum

I fitted Irmscher steps and they were pretty easy to do.

All fixing is done under the car on the chassis. Some of the points its just a case of removing a plastic plug which covers a threaded hole already prepared for fixing the steps too. The others need metal plates inserted into holes on the chassis.

I'm pretty sure the JSG will use the same system although they ave a middle bracket that the irmscher ones don't.

They are fairly easy to do once you decipher the instructions. But no drilling cutting etc.

HiI fittedm the JSG sidesteps a few weeks ago. They are fairly easy to fit. theres some pre drilled holes in the chassis already. You just have to take the plastic plugs out of the holes and the bolts fit straight into them. They look good when they are on.

Thanks guys. I want to have them delivered to the dealer for them to fit ready for pick up. Just wanted the info so I can let them know that I know how long it should take them to fit!!

RJDSJ1- did you have to cut a notch in a bracket for the electronic handbrake thingy??

hi there,
i bought them off E bay. The company were very helpful. Because i work shifts i needed them to be delivered when i was going to be in, so i contacted them and arranged a delivery date with them. I ordered them on a monday and they sent them out on a thursday for a fri delivery.
One of the brackets was a bit out of line when i fitted them but with a little bit of persuation it went on, as for the rest there was not any problems. It took just over 1 hour to do them.
