Rear folding step for defender

does anyone have one of these? I really want to install one, but I don't know if my rear crossmember has the holes to accomodate it. Interested in knowing exactly how it is installed. A pic would be great if anyone can help?

I removed the rear step bumper from my 110 long ago. I believe the NAS rear crossmember lacks a few normally standard holes in that cross member.

It is 2 bolts only, i think they are m8.
I like the rear step, it's very practical.

I have to agree, I'd also prefer that style door too. Those damned push-buttons always get frozen up in the winter on me.

Stick with the doors. Good ones off the early 90's are like hens teeth. I have a 2.25 Petrol 90 thinking of 200 / 300 Tdi conversion
