I'm planning on purchasing Running boards. Anyone know of any that is compatible with the OEM mudguards.
If you get the OEM running boards only the REAR MOLDED splash guards will work. On the fronts you will need NON MOLDED ones that don't wrap around the body.
In this thread you can see the factory molded splash guards on our Routan. If you then look at the accessory catalog you'll notice that the running boards go from wheel arch to wheel arch. But the rears will not interfere since they go behind the rear tire, just the fronts will interfere.
Here is an accessory catalog you can find everything you need there.
Only if you can pick it up -- no shipping on it, I looked
95 Jetta GL 2.0L, chipped, intake, exhaust, compression, cam, close-ratio w/Peloquin, etc.
72 VW Squareback, rag top, 2.0L, parents original owners
76 VW Riviera Bus, the family camper -- '13 Touareg Executive
06 Ducati Sport Classic 1000...only motorcycles can feed the need for speed
He gives the dimensions of the package 12X12x92, that should work with UPS. Perhaps an email. If your money is green he'll ship it I'm sure, it might just be spendy. I mean he's shipping seats that are 70#. I just calculated it to me on UPS.com (I have a business account) and it is $127.95. It is tallied as 90 billable pounds due to the size of the carton. So for close to $275 you can have the running boards, still cheaper than the dealer IIRC. I would assume he has a UPS business account, if you go to the local UPS store your gonna get mugged, they are independently owned and can basically charge what they want.
