Welcome from central Ohio.
I like mine body color, tucked and lowered. I will eventually replace with the molded ones from MPG. There is a post concerning the running board issue. Can't seem to post the link.
In the end the thing I enjoy most is customizing my SSR with the things that blows up my skirt.
Enjoy and again welcome
My 2 CENTS and we all know what that is worth. The SSR was designed and styled after the 40's and 50's Chevy pickup and needs the boards. Color keyed to body color. Really protects the paint also from chips, mud, and grime, etc.
Gvsnowbird37, There is another Thread titled "Running Boards" by txbarbara that has 23 posts about that. Might check it also.
