Hi 06, can the mounting brackets be modified to bring the units in closer to the rocker panels so as to eliminate the gap? or does the quality not make it worth doing? We must have seen 8 or 9 different overseas companies going for this market at the SEMA show and only two were worth a look. We all need to be very careful about mounting low cost accessories to our vehicles. I don't think they are very concerned about product safety and liability.06grnridge said:crap/cheap quality...I currently have them on my ridge...they do not fit, since they were originally made for the Pilot, the bracket are nor sturdy enough, they bounce if you step on them and the body gap is too large, which could be a hazard for kids...their feet could slip through the large opening and get them hurt...mine are coming off in the next couple of weeks, once I decide what to get next.
