Question a plea for help

currently own a 2007 V6 Tdi Altitude in the UK, i am trying to buy a set of side boards but all companys say that the flat ones not the tube type are not for the altitude, any help would be much appreciated.

The issue is that the Altitude model has those side skirts that protrude outwards and the boards/tubes don't accomodate for such. If you willing to loose the skirts and put the regular rocker covers on instead you'd be able to do as you wish...

Or you can cut and weld an extension to clear the skirt... but you will loose your front jack up slot. Rear is fine.


The best long distance runners eat raw meat, run naked and sleep in the snow
