Running Board Install How-To

Has anyone put together a how-to for installing OEM running boards. There seems to be plenty of videos on YouTube for aftermarket styles but Iím striking out on factory equipment. I just purchased a used yet for my 2016 Traverse and would like to put some time into them this weekend.

There are two OEM types used on gen 1s...... factory generic off the chassis chrome ones usually installed by the dealer on new vehicles, or the custom fit replacing the rocker panel anthracite ones purchased separately for install.



Dealer's parts department should be able to print out a complete set of instructions like they did for me.....over 10 pages for the anthracite ones if I remember correctly.....after seeing instructions and custom hardware parts including rivnuts requiring a special tool to install properly...... easier to give him the $150 -200 for doing it.

Good clarification. I have a set of off the chassis chrome boards. Truly hoping it’s easier than throwing more money at this.

Those are the easy ones, direct mount doesn't require pulling the rocker panels.
