GU factory side steps 2013 fit 2003 ????

Unread post by Nissan on Patrol » March 19th, 2018, 9:54 am

I am looking at replacing my 2003 GU Patrol genuine alloy side steps after having lent the car to my young bloke to 4WD. You guessed it. Trashed the drivers side step.

I have been on gumtree and found some in great nic that came off a 2013 model.

I know that Patrols have not really changed much at all in this time so I am confident that they should just bolt straight on.

Does anyone know for sure that this is the case.

Regards,
Scott.

I can't help with the fitting or not, but you do realise that if you fit another set of OE Side Steps, the same thing is likely to happen again if your vehicle ever goes 4WD'ing?!? :petrified:

So, why not fit a good set of Rock Rails or Sliders that will easily support the weight of the vehicle AND provide both side steps & sill protection?!? That'd be much more worthwhile on a vehicle that just might see some more off road work! ;)
