Factory Mopar running boards, Need measurements
 
To anyone with factory mopar running boards, I need to know what the measurement is from the bottom of the running board to the edge at the door jamb. I need to know if they are lower then stock. Looking for the measurement from in front of the passenger side rear wheel under the door.

Thanks.

These are them for anyone interested.

bro....I'm thinking they are pretty close to the Mopar kit/SRT side skirts. I saw an SRT with these running boards on it and they look to be the same height as the SRT skirts. So I think they are lower than the stock skirts by quite a bit,.....

Thanks, thats what i needed to know.

Macdee is who i originally hoping to pop in here cause i have not seen many others on here with them.

I am only concerned cause i really want to get these, i am always trying to get on my roof whether its for my kayaks or when i am working or what ever. But i have my side exhaust and if its too low then i might have to change my exhaust to use them. I dont really want that any lower because its already pretty low.

I asked the Finace thinking that she would say no and she wants to get me them for x mas so we will see what happens.

Oh and my jeep finally claimes its first victim. My fiance and my best friend were in my jeep with me the other day and when my friend got out of the back seat he burned his leg of the exhaust tips. LOL. had a nice half moon on his leg, whoops.

Looks like SRT8 style exhaust may happen by winter. lol

Ain't much room there.

That dual exhaust looks really nice, you should just move them to behind the rear tire.

I don't stand on them all the time but I have from time to time, I wiegh 160lbs.

Also when I go to the Hand Car Wash, the guys also stand on them sometimes.

They seem to hold up to us lighter guys.


But I be honest with you , I got them more cause I like how they looks on the Jeep.
