2013 black sport running board, bullbar

Could you guys recommend a set of running boards and bullbars that would like nice on a crystal black sport ridgeline. I would like them to match the black and silver rims of the sport. That, or I think all black would look pretty sweet on this black beast. Thanks!

On a side note, are both of these products fairly easy for a diy'er?

Yours looks nice! Do you actually off road or do you just like having those hid lights?

Re: 2013 black sport running board, bullbar

Most of the aftermarket running board/side steps are pretty easy to install as they use the existing threaded holes. Not sure about the bull bar, however I think you need to remove the bumper to install it. Good luck!

Re: 2013 black sport running board, bullbar

Are there retractables out there or RL's? It would be nice to have the best of both worlds: The clean look of no step, but with convenience for those passengers who would benefit with the step engaged...

Re: 2013 black sport running board, bullbar

I think Stainless Steel would look better on a Black truck, but of course is a personal choice, as personal tastes differ.

EBAY was my friend for great prices.

For the Bullbar, you don't have to remove the bumper, just the plastic shield under it, and make a couple of cuts in it, and re-install.

Looks great with PIAA Fog lights too!

Re: 2013 black sport running board, bullbar

Running the Westin step tubes vs. running boards and the Steelcraft bulbar. The Steelcarft was one of the few I could find that is also described as functional. So, I wasn't going after looks alone but needed something to help protect the front soft underbelly of the RL. It has certainly helped as since getting this, I have not had any bumper damage (already replaced the bumper once) and the bull bar isn't damaged either. Bought black so if it becomes damaged, I can simply repaint if it gets too bad. The skidplate is also removable.

One caveat, the instructions are cr*p. They provide templates for cutting the splashguard behind the bumper and they are wrong. You should just measure the mounts yourself and make your own cuts. It's not hard, but it is irritating as I doubt the manufacturer could have ever tried this themselves. You do not have to remove the bumper but I did anyway as it is very easy and provides a more open space to complete the work.

Re: 2013 black sport running board, bullbar

I found the APS bullguard on amazon for a good price but it says it fits 2006-2011. Did anything change in 2012? Will it fit the 2013?

Re: 2013 black sport running board, bullbar
