I actually started this thread about the side moldings. My impressions of the running boards are as follows: They are supported by 3 brackets and are plenty wide and strong enough to stand on (I'm 235lbs) In all honestly I don't use them. I'm 6'0 and I find myself lifting my right leg over them. For me it's actually more awkward getting in the vehicle because they stick out. Also the bottom of your left pant leg will rub against the edge when entering the vehicle, so if the edge of the boards are dirty your pants will get dirty also. I really purchased them for looks and am very happy with the way they look on the Jeep. Just an observation, if your parked next to a car that sits low there door may hit the board before hitting your door.

Sorry, I meant the exterior mods section up above, not this thread. Thanks for your impressions.

I have the same exact ones and although I bought them for the kids, I've learned that when I park my car and put it into off road 1 height or off road 2, most car doors will hit the boards versus my doors - dual purpose for me

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee side molding /door dings

I ordered the color matched moldings from SportWing for my 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited. Arrggghhh
Strike 1.
I paid for 2 day shipping they took a week.
Strike 2.
The front door moldings were deformed and wavy like a snake.
Strike 3.
I called to return them and they sent a call tag and told me they would hand select me a new set and get them overnighted to me as soon as they got them back.
Strike 4.
After 2 weeks I again called and was told that they found the moldings were actually being made too long and were being redesigned. I told her my were the right length but were deformed and crooked as a snake. I was told I might have them in 6 weeks or so. I asked for a refund

Any other vendors that you like out there?

Thanks,

Rob
