I have the Canadian OEM side step bars as well, and they're hot. I prefer them > Chrome > running boards. Running boards just ruin the aesthetics of the car to me, which to most people is of much importance.
All my friends say that it looks hot. I have the limited, so along with the rims and chrome grill, it contrasts my black car very nicely.
How hard is the install if you buy from the NewParts? Is it something I can do myself, or do I have to take it into the dealer? Just curios if the holes are already pre-drilled, or if I would have to do that myself, thanks.
