You really need to look closely at the brackets as they don't appear to be marked like the mopar ones. The short on is in the back and long one in the front. What you need to understand is the long one is obvious but the other two are one an 1/8 of an inch apart. If they aren't in this order you will have lots of problems getting the bolts to align. Keep all the bolts loose until you get all of them started as well.

Re: Chrome Side Steps

Thinking of getting side steps for my mineral grey. Do you guys think the curved ends look better than the straight cuts?

Your car so your opinion is the only one that matters.
I personally prefer these ones

But the misses prefers the ones you posted. Her car, her choice.

I like the running boards too but a little hesitant, it looks really thin or flimsy ? Unless I'm wrong. .

No, shouldn't be flexy.

Thanks for the pic. The bracket is quite noticeable!

Might still get them due to the price.

Re: Chrome Side Steps

They do look better than what is shown in the pic. Was also looking at the ones that snuke has posted the link to, the warehouse that supply these are only around the corner from where I live but decided to go with the chrome stainless. As snuke said earlier it is all personal choice.

Re: Chrome Side Steps

If you go back to my previous posts you can see some photos of my side steps I got off Ebay. Photos show how far out they protrude from vehicle.
Squashed tube type, rounded ends, brackets hang down a little, but for the price if they get ripped off in the scrub, I'll get another set or rails instead. Oh and they work wonders in the school car park, seen the odd car door bounce back off them. Helps too when I raise the Overland to max when parked.
