Looks custom and flimsy.

An un-guarded one. Lots of customs on that truck and yet no underbody protection. Weird.

It simply looks like a custom modified side step like I've seen on full size trucks. N-Fab, Rough Country, etc... They all make them. The one pictured below is similar, but at least long enough to not look as odd as the one depicted on that 130.

Yeah, but the non-functional custom stuff is 100% what the guys buying these care for. The Guys that know the difference don't have others build their trucks. No harm, no foul.

Yakima or Thule.

Side steps likely ECR made. PM Mike here to get confirmation

Not ECR (they make functional and well finished stuff)... This is east coast DEFENDER apparently.
Totally different company and level

actually i didn't mean to be so harsh there...

My hope in looking at the picture again is this is a work in progress.. and unfinished. I've never seen a EC DEFENDER truck in person, so can't pass judgement.

I have seen several EC ROVER trucks in person over the years and have always been impressed with the level of work and integration.

anyway carry on... those steps would be fine for a truck that says on the pavement... Off road those things rip off jeeps all the time, usually causing body damage as well.
