Red face Side steps for GC 2014

Hi all, new Jeep owner (Grand Cherokee Limited 2014)in Australia. I want to fit side steps in chrome or stainless. Does anybody know where I can purchase great looking tubular runners from that post outside of the USA. Jeep dealers in Australia fit them but they are ridiculously priced. I would also be interested if anybody knows the brand that the dealers supply in Australia.
Cheers Sky Pirate.

Re: Side steps for GC 2014

I think there's a few threads on side steps already mate... have a browse under the Export WK2 section.

However, to sum it all up, most in Australia who didn't get their steps from their Jeep dealer either bought them on eBay, or imported them from somewhere like JustForJeeps.

Cheers,
Steve

Thanks Snuke... I figured you'd post the link so I didn't bother looking it up.

Slacker, now go test my iphone with my car's dash cam and read the manual for me.

Thanks fellas. Just found a place in Sydney that make stainless runners. The company is called Everest. Well priced. Have you heard of them before?

Re: Side steps for GC 2014

See from post #103 in the thread I linked to, that is where I got mine from, via ebay as it was cheaper, I give some good installation tips in that thread.

Link to that post - Chrome Side Steps

Thanks mate, great thread,makes dealer supplied and fitted ones seem like a rip off.

You can get cheaper ones but they will distort and the chrome will not last long,pay peanuts and you get Monkeys.

Re: Side steps for GC 2014

Ummm... Greg, not all of them are chrome. It's also hard to imagine an aluminium extrusion distorting for example, unless it's hit with something... in which case you needed sliders.

The OEM ones are no way worth three pair of cheapies, but if it floats your boat...

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Side steps for GC 2014

Steve,the genuine Mopar side steps are mounted in 3 posistions,right left and centre and are 1/4 extruded aluminum,with the highest quality chrome finish,agreed over priced but will last the life of the car.i have seen cheaper steps and on two vehicles were only fixed on the ends and were sagging a little,I did some serious haggling with my dealer and got them $200 cheaper,and they look terrific. cheers Greg.
