2014 GC SRT Sidesteps?

Just been told by my dealer that they can't attach sidesteps to my new SRT, is this true? I tried to get them included in the deal, firstly agreed & then said they will not bolt on. I want them so I don't have to lower it as much.

Thanks man, this dealer in is Melbourne, Australia. So probably not too much of a problem for most users on here. Just out of interest which model did you put on. I pick it up tomorrow & want to go armed with the right info?

Re: 2014 GC SRT Sidesteps?

I'm in Sydney, so no issue for me, but we have plenty of Melburnians on here.

Those pics are not of my SRT, but a car i saw in my local shopping centre. I have a 5y/o boy so they are of interest to me.

EDIT: here is an Aus seller of the same style..... in Melbourne too!

We'll the actual phrase the dealer used was, he couldn't use genuine side steps. Maybe he's right here & the one that were put on were after market?

Re: 2014 GC SRT Sidesteps?

Also note that most other styles wont fit due to the sideskirt/plastic trim that runs along the side of the car. Other styles usually curve inwards at the ends or are a touch too long and would rub on the sideskirt.

Worth a call to the seller, but his ad says "genuine" ?
