2014 Altitude Side Steps

Recently picked up a 14' Altitude and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for adding side steps. I've come across Mopar 82212130AB, but they only go up to 2013. I'd like to keep with the black theme of the package. They also need to be compatible with the splash guards that have already been installed. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: 2014 Altitude Side Steps

That is actually my GC Altitude above. Once I brought it home, I found out quickly that I needed something on the sides to step on, as my 7 year old twin daughters were constantly stepping on the door sills that say "Do not step", when they got in the truck. Sometimes function trumps form.

The side steps are made by Aries - Amazon.com: Aries S221008 4" Black Oval Step Bar: Automotive

I liked them a lot better than the black OEM side steps, and they were pretty easy to install, and I am overall very happy with how they look. They also really help out when washing the top of the truck.

Re: 2014 Altitude Side Steps

Thanks. I've sent an email off to Aries to find out if they will fit with the OEM splash guards. judging from the picture, I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling that they will be compatible.

Re: 2014 Altitude Side Steps

Yea definitely not a fan of side steps on an altitude...takes away from the street/aggressive look if it

I just installed mine last weekend. Wasn't sure if I was going to like it but I did it anyway.
Not everyone's cup of tea but I actually like it.

Re: 2014 Altitude Side Steps

I have ordered a ss romik set for my overland and am looking forward to get them on for several reasons: (1) so that the kids can get in and out easier, and (2) hopefully stops some of the door dings when in a parking lot next to an inconsiderate individual. The romik gives an option with a 2" extension that should help extend them out a bit farther for this very reason.

Plus I like they way they look on a truck; think they look unfinished without but that's just my opinion!

Did you install your Romiks? Mine are finally on the way after waiting about three weeks.

Re: 2014 Altitude Side Steps

Ha! I wish! I ordered them back on June 4th and have STILL yet to receive them! Apparently it's not because of Romik rather the largest automotive transport company in NA, Keystone. They signed for them back in June (Romik has the signed document they were received) then proceeded to lose them internally and not bother to reorder them! So here I sit 2months out and what recourse does keystone have that benefits me....nothing. I am pretty pissed off so they better be worth the wait; I will post some picks once I get them on with the extensions so you have an idea what your getting.

Wow! What a mess. I raised a stink over three weeks, two months is ridiculous. According to UPS, my set will arrive tomorrow. Hopefully they will come with everything I need and will do the install over the weekend. Sounds like I may have to post pictures for you. Good luck.

Get those Romik's on yet? Mine have FINALLY shipped from the distributor and am supposed to have them today...not holding my breath. Once I get them on, I will post some picks for others who are interested in Romik's as well.

Re: 2014 Altitude Side Steps

Just an update....finally received my Romik product! And would you believe, after waiting almost three months, they sent the wrong items (sent me the running boards, not the side bars)! UNBELIEVABLE. So PI$#ED off right now; trying to get a response from Romik and the shipper (Keystone) as to who screwed this up, and what they are going to do about it!
