Update,
I never found where to buy these so I decided to design a set using CAD (CATIA V5). I have the basic design done just need to refine a little before I send to the prototype shop. If had some extra sets made would there be some interest from other members to buy them? Just trying to gage interest. Let me know here.

I will post some design detail later when it is fixed and it has been quoted.


Thanks
Greg

Ok, I think there should enough interest to have more than a few sets made which would help on the prices as well. I would be very price sensitive just like you guys so I make them priced affordably though efficient design. It doesn't make sense to be just as expensive and new running boards.


Professionally I am engineer, designing chassis components, so this is what I do everyday.

Thanks guys
