Rear step of the troopie: standard or option? (1 Viewer)

Hi all, my troopie has a step mounted to the rear 'bumper', which I guess is there to make it easier for the troops to get in and out of the rear, but I am also seeing troopies that don't have the step but 2 separate 'bumperettes' (not sure what they are called). So I was just wondering if the step was added later (my troopie is from 1983), or if it was an option. Would be cool to learn something :) Cheers

I assumed it was standard on troopies, it was an option on 40 series
both should have bumperettes tho
Thanks for the reply. Here is a picture of my rear (I know that there should be a round tube mounted along the edge, but that was crap so I didn't reinstall that). Do you mean that there should be bumperettes on each side of the step? There doesn't seem to be any space for that?

that step is not OEM, the OEM step would fit between the bumperettes and use the inner mounting bolts of each to attach
the step being 12"? wide or so
need more pics of the troopie

apparently we are both correct: Rear Bumper & Bumper Stay for 1980 - 1984 Toyota LAND CRUISER HJ47 | General sales region, , 18023082-936138 - https://www.megazip.net/zapchasti-dlya-avtomobilej/toyota/land-cruiser-38286/hj47-56585/hj47rv-kcq-936138/rear-bumper-bumper-stay-18023082#

Both options are possible: a narrow step between the bumperettes or a wider step that replaces the bumperettes, apparently in combination with an auxiliary fuel tank (why would that be I wonder?). With aux fuel tank they mean a tank mounted to the swing out carrier (as can be seen here: PartSouq Auto Parts Around the World - https://partsouq.com/en/catalog/toyota/part?catalog=EU&model_code=HJ47RP-K3&group=7751)

At least that is how I am interpreting the catalog. What do you think?

But then here is a picture of a FJ45 with bumperettes, narrow step and swing out carrier for fuel tank ... basically contradicting what the drawings say!
