I agree. The running boards are mounted below the rocker, which which lowers the clearance and is not as clean/integrated looking, and makes the car look a bit 'heavier' if that make sense. The 3rd gen running boards were mounted in place of the lower rocker which gave it a much cleaner and more integrated look. Personally I'd skip the running boards since the car is pretty close to the ground to begin with and they don't look particularly good.Nice looking MDX!! 👍👍
Was considering running boards.. and I see that you have them. Do they look 'detached' or is it just the photos? On most SUVs, running boards make the car look sportier (i.e. MB's AMG trim on the GLE's), but the running boards on MDX's doesn't look like it 'flows' very well?? I hope I'm wrong. They DO act like mud guards though which I like, can see all the mud in front underside of your running boards... instead of on the side of the car!!
