The only thing I didn't get on my new chevy traverse is a running board. My wife is now saying that our kids need the sidestep added, so I am thinking about having it added on, but would like to see how it looks first. I read somewhere that it's chrome, but haven't seen it anywhere yet.
Didn't get the factory running boards installed..$800+.. You can get Nerf bars which are exactly the same from an on-line store for about $230..I paid $50 for installation, so under $300. I also got them for my 8 year old triplets to help them get in and out (which they love) and have used them myself, but only occasionally. Seem to be sturdy enough. Pictures in the Gallery will give you the idea of what they look like. Look great on the darker colored cars. You can also get them in black from the same stores on-line. (slightly cheaper too).
