Re: Running boards

This is what we put on our Altitude. They really add to the looks and don't budge when you step on them. Got them from moparonlineparts.com. They are the black tubular ones. The dealer put them on for us.

Re: Running boards

Those are nice. I'm looking for the chrome look to match the rest. Nice tubes though.

Are the Mopar tubes easy to install or just best to have the dealer do the buy and install. I have a flyer for 10% off labor which isn't to bad where I'm at.
Probably about $100.00 difference to do myself verses the dealer.

Yes, I'm 6'5" and even I will still use the board to step up and over the seat instead of sliding across it.

No name, or insert your own brand name here type. I got them of ebay.

Here is an installation video of the same bar branded as Spyder Auto.

Re: Running boards

With the side steps, you are coming from further out, and need to clear them. It really does make a difference on how you can get into the car.

I like chrome more than black, too.

These are the ones I'm ordering...saw them on a showroom model at the dealership and they looked hot.
