Anyway, some photos of powder black Sidesteps and Mineral Grey. I have mudflaps as well.....
Can you post some pictures that show the whole side and 3/4 views. I have a Mineral Gray on order and am debating on the mudflaps as well as the running boards, black or chrome...

Re: MOPAR Black Tubular Sidesteps

Bumping this with hopes that someone could take a pic straight on. I too am curious about how far they stick out.

Re: MOPAR Black Tubular Sidesteps

anyone have an opinion on if these sidesteps from MOPAR decrease ground clearance?

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.

Good luck,
Shem

Does the attached images work? Sorry about the color contrast, it's kind of an overcast day here today. I can shoot again on Thursday when they are expecting sunshine.

Re: MOPAR Black Tubular Sidesteps

Thanks for the pics Shem! I too am debating between the black and chrome OEM sidesteps. I'm leaning towards black since it's less expensive than the chrome and both look good on the WK2. You may want to consider the mudflaps which may help reduce the amount of water hitting the steps. I've invested in the mudflaps and am just waiting to get the sidesteps now. With the help of your pics I will go ahead and order the black steps.

Re: MOPAR Black Tubular Sidesteps

I'm still chewing on this idea of getting side steps from Mopar. They look nice from the side and I still think they stick out little too much. For WK, I thought Mopar had body integrated running boards(like BMW X5's) and Mopar should make one for WK2.

Re: MOPAR Black Tubular Sidesteps

anyone ever measure to see if the side steps lower the ground clearance on the WK2?
