They look great! How long did the install take and any chance you can post a pick from overhead or alongside the truck to see how far they stick out. Thanks. Also will they fit 2014?

They do fit the 2014 (see below response from Winbo)



FYI, this will fit the 2014 Grand Cherokee as well but we are in the process of revising the instructions. In the 2014 models, there is a plastic wire harness in the passenger side that needs to be temporarily removed to install the brackets. Itís no big deal and I am sure some end users will figure this out, but then again there is always that one.

Have a good weekend.

Since this is my second attempt at putting them on (first one was interrupted by mothers day) i figure it took me 3 hours to do the job right. As for an above shot, that will take me a few days to get them bc of being parked in the garage in NYC. But I can tell you that they are 5 inches wide.

It would certainly help if they showed them on a jeep. I mean, how hard would that be? I am sure it would only help sell the product.

Those look like the other ones made by Winbo. How do you like them so far? Is the top brushed or polished finish? It kind of looks brushed with a chrome edge in the photo.

Re: Running boards

The top is brushed and the black dots say "4x4". Better than "DeeZee"
The sides are high polished.

Re: Running boards

These steps looks like.

Can anyone comment in regards to the side steps doing a good job of deflecting debris from the front tires. The reason I ask is, I have the mopar splash guards and arent a huge fan of the way they look and am curious of I put side steps on, could that take the place of the front splash guard.

When I had a JK Unlimited I had no splash guards, but did have running boards and never really had a issue with rocks or anything on the vehicle. I realize the rear would be unprotected, but I would just deal with that.

I can't speak to these yet (haven't really gone over any loose rocks or anything like that) but my last rig had similar boards and never had any rocks hit the door etc. Plus, these are 5 inches wide and solid. I can report further once I hit the loose stuff.
