I built a new and improved step for the back of my Hilux and Suntrekker:

A great job with the steps. Your welding skills are better than mine :(

It’s much easier with steel than aluminium!

Hi Amanda,

You did a great job there. I moved my Suntrekker from a 2wd HiLux to a 4x4 L200 it was so high the only realistic solution (witrhin my skill sett) was to lash out and buy a 4 step Tork Lift steps from the states. Then I discovered I should also have bought Stow n Go mountings - that is not happening and I will be making my own version.

Jon
