Re: Running boards

What about the Ionic CVX for $319. I was thinking of these since my 5'1" wife is pregnant with twins.
Ionic CXV Running Boards Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011-2014 (Not Trailhawk, SRT, or Orvis)
Or the DeeZee NcX which look more like the X5 boards.

the dee zee runners don't tuck in under the door like the Ionic ones do (you can see the brackets in the dee zee ones). As for the Ionic runners, depending on if you're in the NY area or not, but I picked up the exact ones (pretty much the exact ones) on ebay for $230. Since I live there, the vendor chopped off $65 to bring the price down to $230 for the pickup.

Re: Running boards

hmm, i'm starting to come around to this style the more i see it. Chunderboy, do you have pics up of your style installed? I like how this style has a sort of lip... to hide the gap. Makes it look flush against the lower trim on the jeep.

JohnC - I was almost ready to go for the DeeZee but apparently drilling is required. No thanks. Then i about went for the Romik till i saw this thread and helpful pics!

Have not come across any decent pics at all of the Romik in black installed on a WK2. From what i HAVE seen there seems to be a gap between board and trim.

I'll watch this thread to learn more too. My wife is 4'10" so may need running boards. I want to see if the QL park mode lowers it enough for her first.

Thanks, I am right across from Manhattan in West New York. I'll have to check eBay. The wife wants them soon.

I think you'll find the QL Park Mode does the job just fine. My Fiance is pretty short too and she doesn't have any problem getting in or out. But an extra lower step won't hurt anything. Plus I just think the running boards look cool on the jeep, makes it more rugged looking.

Is it sad that I'm more interested in buying them for the looks rather than it helping someone like my grandma get into the vehicle easier? lol
