Question 2013 Pathfinder Running Boards

Love our new Pathfinder. While it sits lower than the old version, it still sits higher than a typical crossover. My daughter and my mom have trouble stepping up to the door plate to enter. Anybody have any word when steps or running boards will be available anywhere? A set would make this vehicle just about perfect for our family.

I'm not sure how a running board (or side step) would fit on the Pathfinder. There just isn't any space because of the design of the rocker panels. If you think about it, any sort of step there, would need to jut out, way beyond the sides of the vehicle, since the Pathfinder's body design doesn't tuck in. I think this is the reason Nissan doesn't offer running boards.

I am equally waiting on some after-market running boards too. It's still a bit steep for my 4-yr old

i'm going to install some grip tape along the edge for the back door. Without the running boards it's very easy for young ones to slip when it is wet out. Hopefully by doing that i won't need to add a running board. Plus I hate to bottom out on them especially during winter time.

My wife is having a bit of a problem getting into the Pathfinder from the passenger side because there is no handhold such as the handle on our 4runner's A-pillar. I've been looking online for any kind of running board, but no luck. Today, I went to my local 4x4 shop and found out that there doesn't seem to be a company that has one on the market yet. The shop employee called AST and was told the company was test-fitting several brackets and that a production-ready bracket was about a month away.

...still looking online, though. If anybody else finds a company that offers them let us know!

Intriguing. I would like to see how they mount exactly.

From an aesthetic perspective, they do look pretty cool.

They do look good but lets not forget the real purpose of them. And they are like 2 inches lower for the shorter people to use as a guide.
