    I have the original brackets to them, but not the steps. I had bought reproduction ones for my 3A, modified the brackets to fit, then I found a set of original ones for a CJ5 and swapped out the steps.

    Have you looked at earlier discussion about steps? Typically they are removed and discarded because they easily get damaged on the trail.

    He wants the original style steps with the diamond pattern and I don't blame him. Originality is part of the romance of these old trucks. As I said previously, they are being made, albeit by MDJuan. That company does screw up plenty of things, but the review on the steps has been largely positive. Mickey, you have very little to lose in at least trying them.

    Saw some on my local CL a week ago, but they are gone now. I'll keep an eye out for them if they relist.

    Some people don't know this but there is a left and a right. The support legs are not equal lengths. One support leg bolts into the hat channel and the other bolts through the floor. The bottom brace going over to the frame has an angle to it.

    Yep if the hat channel has been replaced then this is necessary to stay normal.

    I got a set of reproduction from a friend that didn't like them, he bought a set of custom ones that look too far out for a 58 High hood. I didn't want to drill holes in my frame, so I welded so angle iron brackets to the supports that lined up with holes already in the frame. They look OK and original, and really do help old people ,like me , getting in and out of my Jeep. Painted them with Por 15, and they are shinny and tough. Good Luck

    There is a cj5 at the corner of Hwy 84 and 281 that has a set on them. You can Google it and see it from street level.

    These are two Jeep CJ parts guys here in Tucson.
    Bought stuff from both.
    Both prefer to be called, not texted.
    Don't know if they have the steps but worth a shot.

    One of those guys listed above had a set, but at $250. Ouch. Too much for my pocket book, so still looking. I did get a passenger side one at a very reasonable price from above, but still need a driver's side.
