Mopar super center told me they have not been released yet and so no pics were available. This was just last week

Re: Running boards

Just went to Moparsupercenter's website again and when you put in the part number it now says in the description "Not Available Until December 2012", I hope they mean December 2011???

Re: Running boards

Called my dealer today and these running boards are still not available. He says they are listed as being in production.
Does anyone have a time frame on these..... Milous perhaps?

Re: Running boards

These are the factory "Black painted aluminum - 4' ' oval tubular side rails" p/n 82212130.

They are quite narrow, I put my offside size 11 1/2 on sideways to enter and use just my heel to exit. Is easy to miss and then you just slide out.

Take about two hours to mount, I put together some notes, see here.

ps I am of the "minimal chrome" school. Side and tail trim is needed to break up the slabs but grille is a bit much. Working on thet but $676 for the SRT8 red grille is right out.

Re: Running boards

There are these....but they are in Australia so probably doesn't help you guys much. Very similar to X5 running boards. Hopefully the link below works, if not go to ebay and type in "Grand Cherokee side steps". I get my car in 1 week and will seriously look at getting them.

Re: Running boards

I saw these on a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Real nice touches with the ends slightly roll in.

Have them on order.

If you would like to see them on, go to eBay and type in 2011 jeep grand Cherokee. Scroll down till you find a black Laredo. For sale in Illinois.

Re: Running boards

I called my dealer again last week to inquire about the OEM boards with chrome accents. He called me back in a couple of days after getting in contact with someone at Chrysler. He says they are due in June. Apparently Chrysler is still waiting for the parts supplier to make some final tweaks.

Those are very nice! Too bad they won't ship worldwide. It would probably get very expensive though. I also wish they had 3 brackets per side. That's about the only + (plus) about the Mopar Side Steps/Nerf Bars -- they have 3 brackets, and are very sturdy. I also have learned to step on it sideways when entering (and my feet are small).

The listing indicates the manufacturer is WINBO. WINBO is a Chinese manufacturer of automotive accessories. Their website is mostly non-functional (product links don't go anywhere), but you may be able to find their products from another source.

Re: Running boards

^ Thanks. I guess "looks" are only skin deep. Oh well, the Mopar ones are made in China well.

I have a set of these on my 2012 Overland

PROS
  • Cheap
  • Look Good. Very similar to the steps on the M series Merc or BMW X5
  • Work fine if all you want is a step for less agile passengers.
  • Easy Install
  • Good Quality
  • Reduces road spray. protects lower doors from stone chips

CONS
  • Reduces Clearance by 80mm (3.1")
  • Not really that sturdy. I wouldnt trust them to support over 50kg
  • Not suitable if you plan to leave the bitumen

I will be selling them and replacing them with a set of mopar rock rails once Jeep Australia release the front tow hook solution. I cant go offroad till then.

Hey Douggie, if you're interested in an as new pair, pm me.
