Default No Drill running boards?

Does anyone know of a source for "No Drill" running boards. I have been looking at the Dee Zee FX boards but it appears that it will require drilling. Has anyone installed thise on their ram? If so, was the only drill location where the integrated "mud flaps" mount to the fender well?

Other than the Dee Zee, what are our other choices? I have seen Lund and Westin, but neither appear to have integrated mud flaps. Not a big deal since I can always add front flaps...

Pictures would be nice too.

I'm not sure your gonna find any . When I had the Westins on mine , the main attachment bolts went where the body bolts were , but I still had to drill 4 small holes .

Your 2010 is pre-drilled for mounting steps or running boards. The stock kit comes with nut-inserts and instructions how to use them. Not sure if the after-market kits do, but you can ask.

The boards/bars hang and bolt to the inner rocker-panel.

Doesn't sound like you are looking for the tubular steps, but the Mopar nerf bars mount to existing holes. I don't know if Mopar has more traditional running boards, but if they do, I would bet they mount to the existing holes as well.

Here's some steps for sale right here on the Z. Price looks pretty good.

If I am reading this right, you are looking for the wheel well to wheel well running boards vs. a set of wheel well to wheel well step bars like the ones shown in the post/link above, right?

If so, you'll have to do a little bit of drilling to mount the front and rear mudguard section to the inner portion of the wheel wells at each end.

One suggestion when you do drill is to do a little sanding after you've drilled the hole and put a little primer on those holes. It will stop rust from forming between the running board and the body at the mounting points. Just a little dab will do the trick. You don't need much and you won't see it once you mount the boards.

I did have my heart set on the running boards, but the more I look into it, the more I wonder if I should just get Nerf Bars and then a set of mud guards for the front and rear.

Weathertech makes "no drill" mud guards. Hmmm... Decisions decisions.

The Rhino units look awesome!

Yes, mud guards would be an alternative and I think it's a better look.

The molded mud guards from Weathertech, HuskyLiner and whomever sells them to MOPAR parts stores require no drilling. You mount them in holes that are already in the body / wheelwell.

I installed Romik nerf running boards on my truck. They are stainless steel nerf bars with diamond plate on the top. There is no drilling and they install to factory holes.
