I bought the Mopar black tubular side steps from JustForJeeps.com a month after taking delivery of my new Overland. I, also, was on the fence between the chrome and the black. I'm very happy with the black and they match well with the white gold exterior and black trim that runs along the bottom of the vehicle and around the wheel wells. I had my body shop install them and I'm glad I made that move too since they told me they were somewhat of a bitch to put on.
Before buying I feared they might stick out too far from the vehicle but they don't. I'm only 5"7' so I definitely needed the step-up for cleaning the roof and wind shield, and for loading/unloading my snow board. I weigh about 175 and they are pretty sturdy and don't budge at all. The only downside I can think of is you hear hydorplaning water from the front wheels echo against them, but not a big issue. Get 'em.
I'm attaching images of them. Hope this helps anyone's decision who is also on the fence I was a few months ago.
