Re: Black nerf bars for high altitude
I bought a pair of Romik 61309419 (black), supposedly they should fit on my 2016 High Altitude. I opened the box and the mounting brackets looked like they took a beating in transit, the black powder coating is chipped. At this point I'm considering returning them because of that, but if I put them up I'll let you know if the fit (unless you already know that they don't, in which case - please let me know!).
As an aside, does anyone who has the black powder coating side steps installed know whether the powder coating on the mounting brackets gets easily chipped because of the debris flying up from under the car? And if so, is that a problem with rust in the long term? I'm in Los Angeles so it may be a while before the car sees snow/salt, but it does occasionally rain down here (I'm told). I called Romik to tell them about the damage during shipping and the guy assured me even if I had brackets that looked brand spanking new, they would get chipped in no time once I install them. My cynical nature makes me think that's exactly what he would say so I don't return the brackets, but maybe he's right - does anyone know?
