FS: Rear Tire Holder, Side Steps, Bull Bar - Detailed with Pics

I have been getting some inquires about the rear tire holder recently as well as for the Bull Bar and Side steps. I thought I would make a new thread with detailed information and pictures for anyone interested. These items will be shipped from Airdrie Alberta Canada T4B2E2. Please note due to large dimensions and heavy weight shipping may be costly to some destinations.


Chrome Bull Bar:

May or may not be Mercedes Benz part. The bull bar I am selling is a replacement I received from a an auto body shop through insurance after a small front end collision. I am unsure whether or not it is Mercedes or some after market manufacturer. The item is in excellent condition and is 2 years old.

Includes: Bull Bar and all required mounting hardware. Shown in pictures.

Approximate Weight for Shipping reference: entire package - 25 pounds

Asking: $175 OBO


Chrome Side Steps:

These chrome side steps are Mercedes Benz parts. They are as old as the vehicle, however still in good condition. Some of the mounting bolts are rusted a little. The steps could do with some polishing to bring out a mirror finish again.

Includes: Two sides steps and all required mounting hardware. Shown in Pictures (note: only one mounting bracket is pictured attached to vehicle, however all 4 mounting brackets are included including bolts.)

Approximate Weight for Shipping reference: entire package - 45 pounds

Asking: $150 OBO


Rear Tire Holder (black/chrome):

The rear tires holder is in excellent condition. It is 2 years old, it is a replacement for the original one due to a minor collision to the rear. The holder is black faced with chrome tubes. There are not dents or scratches. Chrome finish is still mirror shiny.

Includes: Rear Tire Holder, Electronic cables/adapters ie brake light, 2X reinforcement/mounting brackets, sleeves, bolts, screws. All required hardware to mount the holder is included. Everything I removed to remove the carrier is included. (The Spare tire is NOT included.) Everything shown in pictures. (please note the listing does include BOTH reinforcement brackets however one is shown still mounted to the vehicle, the other not.)

Approximate Weight for Shipping reference: entire package - 80 pounds

Asking: $600 OBO

I dismantled it so I would be able to guide you here and there on installation, however I do not think I could give you a step by step. Do you have any specific questions on installation?

Have you already cut the holes in your bumper? There are guide like slots on the inside back of the bumper so you know where to cut.

Install right and left reinforcement brackets. the one on the left (where the carrier's swinging hinge will be) will attach to the swinging hinge. The reinforcement bracket on the right (where the pins fasten into the bumper) will hold the sleeve and locking mechanism.

Connect the brake light cable to the correct socket adaptor in the rear of the vehicle. It is located inside the rear interior access panel (the one on the gas tank side of the vehicle) Run the attatched cable down through an already factory cut hole (may or may not be cut but it is outlined and may or may not already have rubber seal for running wire through.)

You will likely need someone to help lift the carrier up for you while you align its bracket on the swinging part to the frame/left reinforcement bracket under the vehicle. Once aligned slide in and fasten the bolts.

Make sure you install the bumper before you bolt on the locking latch mechanism to the frame/reinforcement bracket on the right side. This is because the latch locking mechanism protrudes through the bumper and sits on the outside of the bumper making it impossible to uninstall/reinstall the bumper with it in the way.

I hope this helped a little. These were the first things that came to mind.

They look to be in great shape and you are offering them at great prices.
If I had a place to store them, I might get them for spares.

Good luck selling them !

Every time I make a FS post all of a sudden no one is looking for these items.

I got some paintwork to pay for people!

I got a relative quote from a person in the states and to ship the tire holder will cost 150-550 dollars depending on which shipping speed you choose (UPS). 150 is really not as bad as I thought for an 80 pound 4 foot tall item.
