My 2006 Ford Escape was too tall for my wife, so I purchased these Volcano black running boards with orange pads. They look great and were very easy to put on after I asked Ramone about if I had all the parts. While answering my question, Ramone gave some installation tips. I found them to be extremely helpful in making the install go very smoothly. Now, I did not say quickly, just very easy. I had to undo the black plastic retaining clips that look like they are Phillips head screws, but they are actually taken off by using a very thin bladed standard screw driver and turning the retainer with a Phillips screw driver for a few seconds until the retainer comes loose, then stop turning it and pry it very carefully out, then pry the bigger molly that the retainer came out of slightly with the same standard screw driver, then with your fingers. This lets the plastic cladding of the Escape come out of the way for drilling the two 5/16" holes in the pinch weld for, in my case a number 4 bracket cut to make a 4 hole and a 3 hole bracket, which I used the 3 hole to attach the number 2 bracket to in a cantilever for bracket 1 to go out to attach to the running board beautifully. I had to bend bracket 2 in a U shape to allow it to attach to the frame using only 1 self tapping screw. But this configuration is holding up very nicely after 2 weeks of use. The orange pads are fading a little to yellow, but they are still way more visible than black would be at night. I am over 240 pounds and bounced on them a few times before having my wife use them, and they passed with flying colors. I would very much recommend these running boards and CARiD to buy other things from in the future.
