'86 CJ-7 Factory Side Steps

I picked up a pair of factory side steps & need to install them. Though I know there is not one specific location that they need to get installed at......I'm kinda particular. I am restororing my jeep back to origional as best as I can. Can anyone tell me or send me a pic that gives me an idea on where to drill the holes?

Thanks

I'm a stock (almost stock) fan. Got any photos? Love to see anything close to stock.

Nice Jeep you've got. I like your inspiration photo but I've been there with the lift and I've decided that since mine is mostly ON road I'd rather have better driveability. Even though it doesn't turn as many heads. I've got some pics of mine in my gallery but I'll see if I can post some here. I've just about got the winch installed! ......my previous job was redoing the steering from the box down. I don't have any pics with those mods but I'll work on that also.

one hole goes through the floorboard, just in front of the seat.
the other goes just to the outside of either seat mount.

it's a desire for as close to origional as possible. But possible strain on the floor pans has me thinking again. Might need to rethink some.

only if they were previously installed. I have had 2 CJ's and one bought new in 85. neither had holes pre-drilled, trust me because I drilled them later.

my 1983 had those steps on it when it got it very used. I took them off, as I had never seen a jeep with the side steps.

would appear to me the outside edge of the steps would stay covered in mud and road grime, you would drag your pants over the edge every time you got in the jeep.

I just took mine off and stored them in a box with other parts I determined were not needed, will give the box of parts to my grandson someday when the old jeep is pasted on to him.

No strain if you use a large washer on each of the mounting bolts on the floor to help spread the load from the weight of people getting in and out of your Jeep.



Here's measurements I made for someone else who was installing them:

I happen to have my 83' gutted. I put 5 bolts in the holes that the step was mounted to, 3 along the rocker edge and 2 toward the tunnel. The 2 photos show the dimension to the first hole. Is this what you need?

Didn't see how old the thread was but at least a new thread wasn't made on the same subject.

Side step hole location is critical on the floor pan. There are braces and sheet metal contours that must be either used or avoided underneath. Making correct dimensions is easy for me to do as it is something I must do almost on a daily basis in my line of work.
