Please post pics when you get them!

Re: Running boards

I'm kinda diggin' these black Mopar steps on the brilliant black Jeep. I just couldn't have anymore chrome madness going on, so I had "Limited" options. I'll have to see how I feel after a week. They might look too plastic or some shit.

Re: Running boards

ARIES 3" Nerf Bars

sorry for the bad pics. i took them right after i finished and never got outside to take better ones. one complaint is the plastic for the front for step isn't quite big enough. my wife keeps stepping on the metal because that's where her foot naturally wants to go. but, they are a lot cheaper and should give my paint a little protection from low doors in parking lots. I'd probably go with the black mopar steps above next time. I like the chrome look, but the chrome mopar ones just don't look right to me, and cost a fortune.

Holy smokes. I know they look different, but the rock rails are only 100 more, and look much more integrated.

Currently there are no pics of the OEM running boards, so we don't know how integrated they are.
The ones pictured in thread are not OEM Mopar running boards, they are aftermarket by who knows who.
I'm told the OEM mopar boards are nicely integrated and are similar to the ones found on an X5.

Re: Running boards

Thought I would bump this thread as I am hopping someone has seen what these look like by now. I just contacted a dealership to find out about ordering them and asked if they have a picture of them. I am now waiting to hear back. After seeing the paint damage on one of these threads from driving in the snow/ice I am a little concerned about the up coming winter and I don't like mud flaps. I just got a quote for clear bra on the rocker panels and they wanted $300 and $900 if I wanted the front bumper and the leading edge of the hood. Seems like a lot of money for a sticker.

Re: Running boards

I have the chrome and it really makes the car pop without looking like a pimp's ride. It also depends on the color of your Jeep. If it's black, black chromes doesn't look as good IMO. It looks great on silver, white or lighter toned colors.

Re: Running boards

I will post a pic as soon as my Overland arrives. My dealer is putting them on as soon as my Jeep lands. It's now 7 weeks since my order. I'm now told the delay is affected by the V6 engine recall.

Re: Running boards

I bet they will look very similar to the molded running boards for the WK. I like them, and have them on mine. I rarely ever see anyone with them on the road, and only found one photo of them online before ordering.

I can't wait to see them when one of you guys get them!

Here's a couple pictures of them on my WK to get an idea, I'm sure they will be a lot nicer for the WK2 but molded like mine.
