Mopar side steps

I picked up a v8 Overland last weekend after a little bit of a wait after ordering. I have been fairly loyal to Nissan's previously but Jeep did an excellent job with the GC. I have learned a lot here as well; the forum is a great resource.

I am thinking about buying the side steps from Mopar to help the kids. All the pictures I could find are from a distance so it is hard to see any detail. Does anyone have these yet and what do you think of the quality? Any close-up pictures if you do have them would be greatly appreciated.

Sidesteps

I was looking into these as well. Saw them in person at the dealership and they look pretty good.
Have a black Overland and not sure if the chrome or black will look better - would really like to see some more pics if anybody has them.

I was thinkng of them also, but only to help with the rock chips that hit the spot in front of the rear tire. I noticed that Jeep installed a piece of the 3M clear protector there. In my area they use a heavy aggragate along with the salt and its chipping at the protector, paint above it, and the plastic flare. And yes I have the mudflaps!

Here's mine. It was a fairly easy install with basic tools.

Just got back from the dealer and they had several with the side-steps installed. All were chrome. I noticed immediately that there was some play in the black plastic tread pieces. When I stepped on the black part (or even pushed down on it with my hand), the sides of the plastic piece sort of spread and moved down on the chrome a bit. I was not impressed, but then again I'm pretty nitpicky when it comes to stuff like this.

Thanks for the pic and feedback guys. I finally saw a set in person (not installed) and they looked to be quality and the price is not bad. I am ordering a set of the black ones shortly.

Radside the chrome looks great with those wheels.

Looking to see how flush the wheels/tires are with the side of the truck. Are they set inside or do they stick out at all from the wheel well. Check your private messages.
