Any opinions on them here? I'm considering a pair and all your feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
You can see mine in my signature pic. I have a closeup pic I can get/post from home this evening (if I remember). My only complaint is they do not extend all the way back to the rear (like OEM running boards). They still work excellent for the kids (that's why I have them as well). They are quite sturdy. I can put my full weight on them (and bounce) no problem (while washing the roof, etc.).johnnymossville said:Thanks for these tips. I'm really close to pulling the trigger on a set. I'm leaning towards the oval stainless steel version.
Great pic, thanks for showing me that. I have another question, is it true these could help prevent a door dent or two from people opening doors into you?kkreit01 said:Here's the best closeup I have:
the second day i had my escape. it got a scuff in the front bumper. 3 days later i come out to the parking lot, and there was one in the rear bumper on the same side. i was not a happy person. and i get irritated by it every time i wash it. i feel your pain with the dents.johnnymossville said:Great comments People! Door dents and the people that create them bug the crap out of me. I know they are pretty much inevitable over time, but they are just one of those things,... LOL
As far as the steps go, I would say that if they prevent one or two dings over the life of the car it's just an added bonus. I think having the steps for my young kids, and having something to stand on to wash the car is even better.
The body-color side molding would definitely work as well, and they look really good. Not obtrusive to the design of the vehicle at all.
