I decided to remove the running boards from my 2004 R and I’m looking to sell them. They are in great structural shape but could use a repaint. The black rubber inserts on the top are in excellent shape with just a few small imperfections (please see pictures). All brackets and hardware are included and are also in great condition. I’m asking $300 for the set but would prefer not to ship due to the cost (at least $100). I’m in the Miami/south Florida area, so If any of you Florida fanatics are in need of a set, please give me a holler. Also open to trades of similar value for chrome engine accessories, crossmember, etc). Eventually the $ will go to simple-engineering for more upgrades ?
Thanks for looking,
Bee

Ya might want to hang on to them. I took mine off shortly after I got my truck and ran without them for a while. They were looking a little tired so I just set them aside. A few months later I began to feel like the truck was looking naked. I didn't want to put the boards back on in the shape they were in and I didn't want to repaint them only to have them get scuffed up again. I ended up having them sprayed with Line-X bed liner spray. I put them back on and love them. They have a rugged look to them which I think goes well with the truck and they are tough as nails.

I'm not suggesting this is what you might want to do but I am suggesting you might want to hang on to them in case you change you mind at some point.

I like the looks without the running board. Shows more curves and god knows i love a curvy body. In the image with my son, the lines at the back of the front fender just catch my eye, then the way the rear fender flares out....

:agree :agree If you don't need the $$$ hang on to them. If you change your mind in the future, you may not find any, AND----may have to pay more for them

PS if you haven't looked/compared an SSR that has the Tucked and Lowered Brackets on the Running Boards--DO IT. To me the brackets makes a lot of difference, Better/Improvement, in appearance and easier getting in and out of the SSR.

I say thats a give away price for everything, keep them for a few weeks as if you change your mind you might end up paying nearly double to replace them (with Shipping)

The side body and fenders get pretty beat up without them. The truck was supposed to look like a 49 Chevy and it came with boards. It is your truck. Do what you want.

Very valid point, Auggie . . .

When I was first "bitten" by the SSR Bug, it was either NO Running Boards or Silver Finish Boards . . . no Body Color.

I preferred the No Board Look until I witnessed the nasty "body road rash" due to the absence of boards. Then I discovered and adopted The Doophus, the first SSR I had ever seen with Slingshot Yellow Running Boards.

The rest is history.
