    Default Side Step Mounts

    Does anyone have pics of where their steps are mounted at? I would like to make my own, bu I am unsure of where or how to mount them. Any pics would be greatly appreciated.

    If they are like the ones I had on my 06 TJ, they mounted directly to the frame. You probably already have the mounting holes in your frame.

    there are holes in the frame but, I am not seeing how to bolt the steps on since i can not reach the inside of the fram unless the holes went straight through? Pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all the replys.

    There are a number of ways you can attach steps. It all depends on what style of step you have decided to run. There are a couple of options also depending on how you want to attach them; bolt or weld.

    Finally got off my lazy butt, hopefully these help. All i had to do was remove the bolts in the front and insert the bolts that came with the kit, and in the back I had to drill 1 hole, the othere were all ready there. If you need details of what the pics are, just ask

    rear bracket ( 3bolts used)
