Anyone got a tape measure handy?

Planning to try to switch my black running boards to chrome with a chrome vinyl. Was hoping someone with a tape measure could measure roughly their length so I know what length to buy.

Thanks.

Hey Fauee,
Dont forget to take into consideration the diameter, wall thickness, ambient temperature (expansion/contraction) as they all have a bearing on the size of material you need to buy.

I'm not quite following the OP. Do you not have a tape measure? They are $2 at HF. You already have the black boards, and are applying chrome vinyl over them? Measure yours.

I'm out of town currently, otherwise I'd have access to my Jeep and a tape measure.

Re: Anyone got a tape measure handy?

For reference, 66" should cover it, with a little wiggle room.
