Re: Factory Molded Running Boards
They take about 2 hours to install. You will destroy the old covers removing them. It's easier to put on the sides with the rear tires removed to help with the rear mounting plastic ribbed push clips (Christmas tree clips). There are two plastic style rivets, one on each side up front in the base of the wheel wells. There also is a plastic cover (4 small bolts and 2 wire tyes) that must be temporally removed on the underneath the passenger sidefoot wheel. The rest of the installation is straight foward, it's a direct replacement for the black rocker covers. There is three mounting brackets on each side make the steps are as sturdy as my 2003 Dodge Ram's steel tube style units. I have had them on the truck since June with no problems. They really look nice because they have a matching black diamond plate texture, like the rear bumper cover pad.
