Welcome! There was a bit of discussion about this before. jboa was looking into having a jack point moved so as to fit the Just Kampers side step rather than fork out £300 for the custom made step that Danbury supply. Personally I'd be wary about moving the jack point as there must be a reason Volkswagen chose to move it from it's 'classic' position. Why don't you message jboa and see how he got on?

They said they have to fit it themselves,even though there is only 2 screws! I don't really want to drive a 320 mile round trip just for that.

No that's not a good option. Are you going to any of the shows that Danbury are attending? Maybe they could take it along and fit it there for you. I know they're at Volksworld next weekend.

Hi Tim / ritchiemutley

I haven't taken my idea any further, buts it's still at the back of my mind.
I wasn't thinking of moving the existing jacking point but just getting another one welded on to the same outrigger that the German vans have them on.

You can get a jacking point from JK for under £20.
Weld it on, plenty of under seal, then just bolt on a JK side step.. Job done under £120 not including welding costs. Its got to be a lot cheaper than £300.

Sure sounds like a good solution! It'll be a bit like a third leg ;0)

I saw this on a Brazilian T2 today at the Volksworld Show. Seems this owner opted for the 3rd jacking point to fit the regular side step.
