we just picked up our Redrock base on saturday afternoon. i didn't have time to put the running boards and BSMs on due to a work christmas party. so sunday morning at 8am and 37 degrees in ohio, i got my tools and accessories ready to put on. running boards first. it took 2 hours for me to do it; very easy installation, just time consuming. i had to wait for the condensation to evaporate before i could put on the BSMs. by that time, the kids were around and wanted to help.:eek: :eek:

when all was done, i had the kids 'test' the vehicle (ingress, egress, sitting positions, etc). both my 5.5 year old and the 2.34 year old skipped right past the running boards when climbing in.:eek: after all that money and time, my youngest just hiked his knee/leg up and in. then it was my wife's turn (her x anyways) to test the boards. she too skipped right past them.:mad: "oh, i forgot they were there. i'm so used to my montero that i forgot." not to mention that she just saw the kids hike their legs up and made mention that they didn't use the running boards.

BTW, Redrock is the coolest color (with saddle interior, of course)! it changes with the lighting (firepepper red, cranberry, candy-apple red to name a few). maybe it's my rose-colored glasses.:D i don't have a digital camera to post pics, but it seems that i am the second-to-the-last person on earth to get an x (davegood, of course being the last to get a redrock), so everyone knows what it looks like.;)

i, too, used my highly technical knowledge of what 18 lbs. of torque feels like - ergghh, arrgghh. yep, that's 18 lbs.:D

how do you like the side steps? i liked the stainless maniks, but my wife liked the subtle integrated look of the boards. she finally used them this morning. i think the quality of them is quite high. they are aluminum with a rubbery coating on the steps.
