I seem to remember something about the wheel to wheel nerf bars & the moulded mud guards being mentioned before
Hopefully someone that did it will post what happened with theirs

I was wondering if any aftermarket bars fit with the factory moulded guards. The dealer will give me credit for the mopar ones.

I had the same problem when I tried putting my front mud flaps on as well. After lookin at it ended up reversing the side steps. That moved them back just far enough for them not to hit and now I have about 1/2 inch or so of space between the bar and mud flap.

Taking the drivers side and moving to passengers side and passengers side to drivers side. And everything lined up for me. Like I said for the guys that want to run the molded splash guards on the front without having to trim or cut anything this is what I did and seemed to work.

I reversed my steps as well. On Performance TV yesterday I saw a new product (new to me at least) by ATS design. Seemed like a neat side step with a couple of unique options. Try atsdesign.com. There board is designed with a little movement in the placement to get everything to line up.
