    Running board

    Anyone installed a running board on 2019 CX 9? Any suggestion?

    Thanks,

    Does the running board serve any purpose except to get mud on your pants when you exit the car?

    Lol! The only use I'd get out of it is as a ledge to step on when cleaning the roof. The door sills sit a little too far inward, so in order for me to clean the roof, I have to stand on the door sill and hold on to the fold-down handle built into the headliner. $300+ USD is too much for a solution to a problem that a $30 foldable stepstool can solve.

    Yes, for some people.

    I saw a first gen the other day, and it had stainless steel 3" round bars on it. Not my cup of tea.

    I have a 4 year old, so was hoping it would help him to get in the car by himself.

    There is also an older thread on the subject, but nothing much was found there either. https://www.mazdas247.com/forum/show...2106-2017-CX-9

    I think the new Escalade might have automatic running boards. I saw one in a parking lot last night. It had automatic running boards, but I'm not sure if it was an aftermarket modification or if it was OEM.

    The Amp Research power boards aren't made for our Mazda's, but you can bet one that is close to the proper length, make or modify the brackets, and you are on your way.

    I'm a parts guy, and the only CX-9 application I could find was with Onki, but it is for the first gen only. Might have to see what Mazda has to offer.

    Yes, they are a factory option on the higher end GM trucks. Ford also has them. They are made by either Bestop or Amp Research and sold as a dealer/factory option.
