New molded running board
 
Running Board, Molded - 82212685AB | Mopar

Finally, Jeep has a new side step. (running board)
I like this one more than tubular side steps.
But I need actual picture with our WK2. :)

Is that is what is pictured on the GC in the header on this page? What is that? It looks great, but it's hard to tell:

2014 Jeep<sub></sub> Grand Cherokee - Exterior Accessories | Mopar

It doesn't look like Mopar running board. Is this 3rd party one?

Great price Nigel. I had these on my watchlist already... are you pleased with the bang for buck? How's the chrome look where it wraps around the edges... robust?

As a favour, could you take a photo with the door open looking straight down, or alternatively measure how much step protrudes from the open door's sill edge? ie: to gauge how much step is available for stepping on :p

Many thanks,
Steve

Quality is excellent. Chrome on edges very good, Unit has aluminium base and stainless steel chromed edge. Brackets a bit rough,, left side was a bit out, but slots in brackets and a bit of push and shove to get aligned, but ok. Looks much more classy than others I have seen, including the Mopar ones.

Nighel, I'm jealous of your seats! The saddle color seats look great. They were one of the positives on my OS!

Could I convince you to take a shot or 2 of the running boards from further away like 20 feet or so. They look great up close!

Pretty cool. Do you find them practical entering and exiting the vehicle?

Not really, they just look good.
