I personally installed a set of BAK 880 running boards with the light kit on my 2013 GMC Acadia Denali. The GMC looks great with the new boards! An installation note: the hanger brackets are not designed for the Denali version of the Acadia which has a rocker panel that extends downward 5/8" further than on the SL models. (The brackets are designed for the SL models) I provided then 5/8" thick steel spacers between the bottom of the car frame and the hanger brackets. I also had to change the 5/16" x 1 1/4" long bolts to 1 1/2" long ones. I also had to replace the 1/2" long tech screws with 1 1/4" long ones. Everything else fit perfectly. (I used 3/4 hex nuts for spacers. The nuts are 5/8" thick.) The tech screws and the 5/16 x 1 1/2" bolts pass thru the bracket and the spacer nuts when being screwed into the bottom of the car frame. Light kit: I connected the lights to an interior light located at knee level just above the accelerator pedal. That light is one of the dome light group and comes on when the car is unlocked and stays one until the dome light timer, times-out (about 30 seconds or so).
My wife is 5 ft short, so she needed a little help getting into our 2012 Ford Escape, so I gave these running boards to her for her birthday. I have spent 55 years making her happy, and once again with the help of BAK 870 she was very happy. Thank you!
