    This is just me, but I dislike when they modify the supposedly entrance steps like that, I personally think they look awful and takes a lot of that “Jeep” look away.🙂

    These were popular mods in the PNW during the 70s and 80s to help protect the sides of jeeps, as trail jeeping at the time was full of tight trails that were, sometimes, the width of a jeep, causing the sites of the jeep and the wheels to rub against trees. So, for me, it’s a familiar looks, but I can see what it would be odd if you weren’t used to it. Same thing with rollcages … we PNW kids grew up with them. 🙂
