Running Boards...

I found a really good local deal this past weekend on a set of running boards. A guy was selling a set of chrome Nerf Boards for the Envoy XL for $50. They were brand new and came with all of the mounting hardware.

Well, I installed them today and they looked & felt extremely cheap!! After installing, I stood on them and the brackets flexed bigtime! Before the jokes go flying, I'm 220 lbs. :biggrin:

Anyhow, they just felt cheap, so I removed and trashed them. A $50 loss isn't sitting well with me, but I've had worse...

Anyone have a suggestion on a better set? I do not want cheap crap.
I'd really like the have flat running boards because Nerf Bars just aren't my taste.

Thank you!

I've got stock running boards off my trailblazer for sale if you wanted those. Not sure if your looking for aftermarket ones tho. I'm pretty sure the envoy and trailblazer ones are universal.. Anyone know for sure?

there quite a bit of different running boards, check out ebay and see what there is. They won't be no $50 but will be better for the money paid I am assuming

I can answer that. Phantom has on stock running boards from High Voltage. and ours is an 03 Envoy and i believe jeffs is an 05 or 06 Trailblazer.

Yes, I know I'll be reaching further into my pockets for the next set of running boards. That's fine. I just wanted something that had a better look, quiality, and feel to them.

If they're compatible, let me know how much you're looking to get for them. My zip code is 19114.
One more thing; Do they come with the mounting hardware too? I will need that also.

Thank you for the replies, everyone!

You'd probably be better off going to pick them up from him...you aren't too far apart...couple hours.

ya your right this is what i was just thinking. If we met in deleware it should be only an hour drive for both of us. My grandparents live in Horsham PA and that takes me 2 hours to get to, Im not sure if your farmiliar with that area

Just let me know man. Thanks. -Dan

Would you happen to have a pic of them?

The deal sounds good. I'm available on the weekend, I just have to be home by 2pm on each day.

I will PM my cell number to you. You can text or call. Either one.

You never got back to me to let me know when you're available again. If you still have the RB's, please let me know.
I can do a run to DE almost anytime this week, but I'll still have to be home by 2pm.

Here's another idea - get some MDB fab boards. Guarantee you won't ever flex those :biggrin:
