Ease of Installation
bought these for my new 2017 for explorer due to my 5 yo son needing something to use to get up into the vehicle. I thought the price of 300 was decent, and I liked the design. I ordered them, but no one could get me a tracking number or when they would be delivered. I finally go them in, and the boards themselves had dents on the back edges, screws to hold the ends on were not even tight or if they were they were stripped. Then to install them the brackets did not fit properly and were labeled for a 2011 -2013 explorer. The brackets required a press in bolt piece in the pinch weld, well 3 out of 4 failed. What should have taken me 2 hours max to install took me 8 hrs plus multiple drill bits. I tried to contact the company Blackhorse to give feedback and concerns, which I tried 2 times via email and multiple tries on phone and no one would return my call or listen to my concerns. I found this to be a very poorly constructed board and poor hardware. I would no recommend them. I already have 1 end cap breaking off and need to try and repair it and multiple scratches because they scratch just with foot travel on them. once again I would not recommend.
