I bought a set of the Mopar/Dodge 5" oval tubular side steps from a guy off of Craigs List (took off of his new 2011) over the weekend and mounted them up to my 2010. They look great and I like them alot. They came off of a Crew Cab and I put them on my Quad Cab. I like the over extension a bit for access to the bed.
My consern is, they are mounted using riv-nuts to the bottom inside of the rocker panel. I am curious if I hit a boulder or tree stump with them if the tubes are going to give and absorb the damage or if they are going to jack up the inside of the rocker panel where they are mounted. Has anyone experienced this yet?
Most aftermarket steps / nerf bars are mounted to the body mounts or frame for a reason.
