Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

Yep, I installed them on my wife's '14 Limited too. Like the man said, took me a little over 2 hours with a smoke break in between. Took me about 10 minutes on the first bracket to figure out how to slide they bracket in with the nut already started but I had already determined that I could not do it like the guy in the video and start the nut in place. Once I got the first one, the other five practically jumped in place. My 5' tall wife loves them and at half the price of the Chrysler boards I am happy too.

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:
Congratulations on the running boards....They look GREAT!!!

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

Hey all,

Just installed these on my 2014 JGC Limited today. They look great but it looks like the space between the top of the rubber molding on the running board and the top of the black bottom trim on the Jeep not even the entire length of the board. Specifically, the gap is larger in the back than it is in the front on both sides. Not a huge deal but some of the pics posted on the thread here look like the gap is even the entire length of the board.

Are the mounting brackets specifically designed to go in certain spots or are they all the same? The instructions didn't seem to differentiate between the brackets but maybe I missed it.

Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

My first one was like that also so I just loosened the bolts underneath and pushed it up against the Cherokee and tightened them back up, no crack.....

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

heelz, thanks. I just checked - both the front and the back of the boards is up right against the molding. Maybe I'll loosen up the bolts that connect the boards to the brackets and reseat them to see if I can get the rubber lip to line up evenly with the molding.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

Hope you get it to work out man. I had a gap at the rear of the board and had to put a little pressure on it to hold it against the side of the car so the rubber strip on the board would fit nice and flush. Good Luck, the flush look of these boards was one of the main reasons I purchased them.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

So I've got the rubber nice and tight against the lower trim but still have an issue with the space between the top of the rubber on the running board and the trim on the Jeep.

First pic (on the left) is at the rear of the running board and the first pic (on the right) is at the front of the running board. Any idea how to the get the distance shown on the ruler in the pics to be the same?

Sorry the pics are upside down.

Just went out and checked mine. They are exactly as your showing in your photos. Also checked with a 3 ft level they are pitching downwards towards the rear. I just figured they were following the contour of the vehicle rail.
