So, I have a bare bones 1958 and I would like to install running boards or steps. I have seen some videos/pictures of Toyota all over the world but USA where their Land Cruisers are rocking full size running boards. Like the one bellow.

My white one at the bottom for reference.

I'm sure there will soon be plenty of LC/LC trim folks willing to sell you theirs when they replace them with rock rails.

Oh my I just realized that the LC trim comes with those running boards, but for some reason they are not showing up on the Toyota Land Cruiser specific parts.

Got to call a not so busy dealer parts to look up that parts number.
 
The Lexus GX has powered running boards that can be disabled so they don't extend. Perhaps they could be retrofitted to the Land Cruiser, though I don't know how the controller works.

Yes the GX Luxury Plus trim has retractable running boards. Would be awesome if they also fit the LC.
 
I’m fairly certain those running boards pictured are part of the premie package. I didn’t really want them but probably won’t take them off either. I don’t think they are add ons like the roof rack for example.

In the US, every mid-trim LC comes with running boards, premium package or not. About a week ago I stopped by my local dealer and looked at a mid trim w/o premium package and it had them.
