Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014 - Please read

All Ionic CXV installers - Just an FYI - had my Jeep in for a oil change and the tech informed me that all the bolts/nuts/brackets etc... are rotten away to nothing. 4 Bolts that hold the boards to the bracket had already gave way from the rot and the rest were on their way. I have had them installed for about 7 months and am in the NE so I am sure the winter took its toll but still not to the point that the bolts are giving way. I may end up removing them this weekend for safety reasons and the kids.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

Wow, that's disappointing. I had an issue with my driver's side board and the step pad. I contacted Auto Customs, sent them a few pics and they sent out a replacement within a couple of days. Might be worth contacting them to find out if they will send out a new set of brackets and bolts that you can appropriately treat or paint before reinstalling.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

Looks like I'll be buying stainless steel fasteners and spraying the brackets with some kind of protectant before I install my Ionic running boards.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

I just went out and looked at mine. After 8 months I don't have a bit of rust on them.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

I looked at mine also after about one year of usage and found only minor rust on some of the washers.

Wondering since I was one of the first to get them installed if they later switched to stainless..

Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

I got mine before you but I live in Oklahoma so we don't get as much salt on the roads in the winter like you do.

I just installed my Ionic running boards this weekend, and I can definitely attest none of the fasteners are stainless.

After I get the running boards adjusted just the way I want, I plan on hitting the fasteners & brackets with primer and/or undercoating to help keep the rust at bay.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

So here are some pictures of Ionic running boards I installed on my 2014 Overland. Job took about 3 hours, an hour of which I experimented using stainless steel washers to raise the rear of the running boards up a little for a more raked look. Overall I like them ($329 w/free shipping), but a small piece of me wishes I bought the over-priced Mopar chrome step rails instead.

I did not have any big issues with the install (threading the large nut for each of the 6 brackets was the hardest part), the directions are OK, and I did not require any help. As for cons, the running boards were wider than I thought they'd be...an inch thinner would've been nice, I wish ALL of the fasteners were zinc coated, and I'm not a huge fan of the brackets design...wish they did not hang down as far as they do.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

On my wife's, the driver side board looked good, but the passenger one sloped down too much in the rear. I readjusted it last night, but couldn't get it just right so I ended up adding a couple of washers and think it looks good now.

Regarding the questions of fitment on an Overland, they did fit, but I had to pull back the plastic body trim (where it wraps underneath the vehicle) a bit to get the socket over the 18mm bolt.

Me too. No big thing, and no damage done to the trim or the paint.

Re: Ionic CXV Running Boards on a 2014

After less than a week with these Ionic running boards installed, I've decided to remove them and sell them. I'm going to go with the Mopar chrome step rails instead...I like the look of them better.

So if anyone is interested in buying this set of running boards from me for a big discount before I officially list them in the Sellers section, just drop me a PM. They are still like new...and I still have the original box, packaging, hardware, and instructions.
