Running Boards

I just installed these running boards onto my QX60... makes it much easier for my 4-yr old to get into the car.

Those look really nice. Can you provide a bit more detail on what the brand and model is? Was it easy to install?

Regarding brand/model… I’ve seen it rebranded from various sellers, so I don’t know the real/original brand.


It seems that the common description for these include keywords: Deluxe, running boards, Pathfinder. I purchased mine from Amazon from the seller AutoMaxStyling (
Amazon.com: Fits 2013-2014 Nissan Pathfinder 80" Deluxe Side Step Nerf Running Boards: Automotive Amazon.com: Fits 2013-2014 Nissan Pathfinder 80" Deluxe Side Step Nerf Running Boards: Automotive
)


At $245, it was the cheapest I could find… You can also find them elsewhere like e Bay, which sells for slight and significantly more.


I will clarify that these are typically advertised for the Pathfinder (in case you couldn’t find them for the QX60)… I checked out the Pathfinder forum and found that a few owners had them installed (and many thanks to them for their help). I read the instructions and found that the Pathfinder body holes were EXACTLY the same as the QX60. So, I went for it and bought them. The construction is solid and quality is very high. And I think they have a clean look to them. The steel is thick and not flimsy in any way. To me, they look as if they could be OEM (though I know they’re not).


The installation was as I had expected. The running board description says “80 inches”, but it’s not… it’s more like 75-76” (perfect for the QX60). And the description says these don’t fit the QX60,… but again I found they fit perfectly, even considering I have factory splash guards. I also found out during the installation that the package was missing a few bolts/nuts, but was able to easily find them at Home Depot. Some have installed them on their own while others paid someone/place to do it for them. I installed mine myself and found that it was fairly easy, though a little time consuming (4 hrs total) since I was being very careful and had to stop and clean up to take care of something else (as well as get the missing pieces). And I installed them myself since I wanted to get a good look underneath the body anyway (may spray additional rubberize undercoating). There was no need to drill holes, which was nice. Prior to the install, I laid out and labeled all the brackets and major parts (e.g., driver side vs passenger side and front vs center vs rear,.. to which there are differences). I read the directions twice. One doing the passenger side first (per the directions), the driver side was a breeze.


The nice thing about fitting these running boards is that you can adjust them closer toward the front or rear and inward or outward before tightening (i.e., it’s not pre-fixed).


Overall, I’m really happy with these. I had my 4-yr old son test them out today, had NO problems getting in/out of the car.

This is the best looking running board I've seen yet for the JX/QX. Thanks for posting the information and pictures. Great job!

Thanks Bob. I did a lot of photoshopping first to figure out which running boards would look good on this car and I felt this does it. I think the factory black plastic on the door bottoms make the center of the car look a bit empty (though I like how it flares out)... and that these particular chrome running boards help give it a lowered looking base without actually reducing ground clearance. It's simple enough to look OEM and sleek at the same time. My son and wife love them as it really helps them get in/out of the car. I don't know if any other QX60 owners have installed these.. doubt I'm the only one, but I haven't seen it in person or online. And I've started noticing other QX60 drivers doing a double-take when passing nearby.

Thanks for posting this. I've passed this thread along to a couple of clients who were asking about putting running boards on their QX60's.
