was going to fit side bars, been snooping at some vans and they seem to be fitted to the jacking points.

If i fit bars to them how easy will it be to get a jack under bars and raise it in event of a flat.:confused:

cheers

goin off my experience a right t**t of a job, mainly becuase i have lowered the van !!! but a little trolley jack or bottle jack would sort it out, cus they dont half make a difference to the van

I've got Jeff's bars on mine and it's possible to jack with the VW jack, just. But do able.
