The photo below was taken even with the running board. You will notice that the undercarriage clearance of the body is lower then the running board. The bracket is however lower then the undercarriage by about 1" My Jeep is not 4wd and I have the 18" wheels.

Undercarriage lowest point to ground clearance 9 3/25"
Bottom edge of running board to ground clearance 10 1/2"
Bottom edge of running board bracket to ground 8 3/25"

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

Wow the install looks so easy, I might have to get these as I am short and my family is no taller then I am.

Can someone post a link where to buy them, please.

Thanks heelz. Yeh, I plan on trying the trick of starting the nut first. I knew my fingers were not going to fit up that bracket to start that nut. I had already told the wife she might have to crawl up under there and do that since she has small hands and skinny fingers. The boards are supposed to be here late Monday...and naturally it is supposed to turn cold and rain Tuesday and Wednesday.

My running boards arrived today - seems like a pretty easy install. When you say you threaded the nut on first, i'm assuming you attached the bracket to the part that goes into the hole and then worked the part that goes into the hole while attached, right?

Also, the video doesn't show that you need to use the supplied washers, but the instructions that ship with the boards clearly show they are needed.

Thanks for the info!

Yes you are correct. I put the bolt through the bracket and then worked the bracket up into the hole. Other wise it's difficult to get your fingers between the bracket to get the nut on the threads. I used all the washers that were included. It's a simple job you will probably have them both installed in about an hour. Post some photos when you done.

Thanks! I'm doing them on Saturday - I'll post pics when done.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

Can anyone confirm these will fit a 2014 Overland? The sales website says excludes Overland. I did a search and it's been asked several times but no answer. I can't see why these won't fit unless the lower body molding is different.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

Got the running boards installed today. A little more cumbersome than I had hoped, but not too bad. The advice on this thread definitely made it easier.

For a couple of the brackets, i was able to thread the bolt & nut on first and then attach them to the car. For most of them, i just threaded on the nut after the bolt plate was on the car. The one part I was a bit worried about was unbolting the wiring harness on the passenger side, but that turned out to be dead simple - just remove 4 10mm nuts, and it drops down out of the way. Putting it back in place afterward took 1 minute.

I took my time, didn't want to break anything and I think it took me around 2 hours total (stopped and made my daughter breakfast 1/2 way in).

I think they look great. Wife agrees - and it's her car, so that's huge. Now she can get in the car without an athletic maneuver!

Here are some images of the finished install:
