The oval shape of the side steps provide a nice wide platform and the inset plastic grips ensure you have a safe footing when entering or exiting the vehicle.
These steps look fantastic on any Yeti and also offer a degree of side protection from car park / supermarket damage.
Steps are also great for providing easier access to the roof when attaching loads to a roof rack system.
Manufactured and designed in Italy these Mach side bars are made from a high quality stainless steel that is polished to a mirror like shine.
A full set of brackets are included which are specific to the Yeti and instructions are also provided. You can also download the instructions from via the link below in pdf format.
Side steps will currently only fit the 4x2 version of the Yeti.
We could use a cheap mild steel and then chrome plate it when manufacturing our bars but we don't.
Because after a year or so the bar would look unsightly when weeping rust stains appear.
In the iron/carbon mix chromium is also added that gives the steel its stainless qualities.
The chromium element stops the iron from oxidising and becoming rust (iron oxide).
Road salt used during European winters and sea salt, speed up rust formation and again gives us another good reason to use stainless steel here in the UK & in Europe where our products are sold.
Stainless steel can be exposed to the elements all year round and with a little polish now and again, can look as good as the day it came out of the packaging. This is the reason boat makers use stainless, and not mild steel.
Our stainless has a 3-year warranty, features a mirror polished chrome or black powder coated look (on some black finished items) but is in-fact more expensive, more durable, stainless steel.
