Land Rover designed the Defender 90 vehicle to go off-road, and there are times when it's easier to get in and out of the Defender 90 with the aid of a side step. The side steps also provide solid footing for accessing the Land Rover's roof rack, where you may need to stow items to keep them safe when barrelling along on your off-road adventure. If your Defender 90 didn't come from the factory with side steps, you can easily install a set if you're handy with a wrench and in good physical shape.
