Install 2010 Sport Running Boards

I have an interesting situation and I need some help from you all. I just dropped off the SRB are at a friends house (he has a 2 car garage...we have too much snow here). The plan is to install tomorrow, BUT I didn't take open the package and now I am at home and I don't know what tools I'll need for the install. I plan on taking the basics (and a flexible snake tool). Anyone that has done the install can you tell what tools I'll need. Thanks in advance.

Finished installing the SRBs last night.

I read somewhere people were having trouble with removing/accessing the screw on the inside. I found out that if you turn the wheel the hard in the opposite direction you can easily access it from underneath. And you do need to use a stubby.

THANKS EVERYONE...THEY LOOK GREAT.

Next exterior mods are the Silver Roof Rails and BSMs. (That is gonna have to wait for the summer...funding isssue)

No, that isn't the problem people are having. It's the inside screw on the rear piece of the running board that is hard to get to.

Some leave it out (like i did) or just takes a lot longer to try and get it in.

Is this style of running board, with the integral front mud flap, available for other model year MDX's? I can't find one searching dozens of Acura parts sites.

The sport boards are only available for the 07-09's and 2010's.

Thanks, but that sounds beyond my DIY capabilities. Spend a bundle and hope I can fabricate alternate mounting brackets, too risky. There are some OK running boards for the 2001 - 2006. One thing I found out about the X is the sides get filthy on wet roads. It really needs the fender flares.
