APIO Steel Rear Ladder (Narrow Version) for Suzuki Jimny (2018+)
APIO have been at the forefront of Jimny lifestyle, maintenance and modification in Japan for many decades, with the company having originally been founded back in 1969.
APIO's Steel Rear Ladder (Narrow Version) is suitable for the latest JB64/JB74 2018+ Suzuki Jimny models and can be installed without requiring any drilling of the rear tailgate. Weighing a sturdy 5kg assembled, it has been tested in Japan to safely support 75kg loads.
The Narrow Version is designed for Jimnys with larger than normal wheel and/or tyre combinations, resulting in an oversized spare wheel being fitted to the tailgate. The Narrow Version has been tested to be suitable with tyre sizes with an outer diameter of up to 740mm.
Compatible wheel/tyre size examples:
YOKOHAMA GEOLANDAR M / T G003: 205, R16 - outer diameter: 736mm
BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T / A KM3: 205/80R16 - outer diameter: 740mm
Scratch-proof rubber pads are included to be attached to the upper and lower mounts to prevent any cosmetic damage being caused to the tailgate.
The ladder has been designed to be fitted alongside spare wheel/tyre combinations with a maximum outer diameter of 720mm. 195/80R15 and 215/75R15 tyres have been tested to be compatible. The ladder can only be fitted to the right-hand side of the tailgate.
