Assist step

Post by mikeabn » Mon Mar 09, 2015 12:02 pm

What might be recommended for an assist step for each side of my M38A1 to make it easier for me and my wife to get in and out.
I see a lot of tubular type steps for modern jeeps which don't look obtrusive. Not sure of the mounting problems
Thanks for any suggestions.
This is my first post. Just had the vehicle for less than a week. I remember jumping in and out with no problems back in the mid 1960's

JEEP made a Kit, for the 1955-1971 CJ-5 94527 Which consisted of one Each 689105 Step, left, assembly and one each 689106, step, right, assembly. I do not have the pics. They were Black and made just for the CJ-5. There were other kits for CJ-3A and CJ-3B which were slightly different dimension for the earlier style Jeep.

I have found two sets of factory CJ side steps in our parts.
Paint them OD and I think they will be fine.
One set really nice, one set has some rust, easy fix.
If interested I can send pics and prices.
