At home I use a step stool to get at the roof rack and contents. For some purposes I stand on top of the rear tire.

But I've also made a compact 'step' that fits into one of those slots under the door sill. Tabs on the lower part of the doors fit in those slots, strengthening the doors in case of a side impact (so there is solid metal under the plastic). The 'step' does not raise me up above the sill, but lets me stand without hanging on for dear life.

There's a picture of it on my pbase gallery (see the sig). Basically it is two pieces of wood, joined with a hinge. One end is trimmed to fit in the slot. The other rests on the ground. I used oak for strength.

I don't use it all the time, but occasionally it is handy.
