Re: 05 wk side steps / running boards installed

Curious, why did you install these? Do you need these to get into the Jeep? Or for the look?

I wanted some for aesthetics (and for my 5'3" gf) but I realized that they would be useless functionality-wise on my Jeep since I also duck to get in (at 6'0"). Also, those look to be the Hunter brand, correct?

Ah, I totally understand. It's the 'spinner' factor.

I have the same ones, they work well to assist my kids in getting in/out of the jeep. the brackets have started to rust, but the boards themselves look good as new. I don't care much for the black finish, thinking of sandblasting to the original bare aluminum and then clear coating because I have silver paint. the boards were a good price as I recall.
