Default ranger ext cab running boards

Id like a set of the black unlighted steps or running boards that i see on the 00 and up rangers. The set must be complete with all the mounting hardware and bolts preferably within pickup distance of NYC. they must be in very good or excellent condition with no dents or rust.
Please reply with photos, location and price thanks

I was thinking of taking mine off, I just repainted them. take a look and make me an offer. If I do sell them to you, I work close to NYC, Rockaway NJ exit 35 off route 80.

I just wanted to let everyone know that there's a big difference between the 4-door extended cab running board brackets and the 2-door extended cab running board brackets. (I leaned this the hard way)

Like mine, the mounts will attach to the cab and the bed, which would be good for your truck

Hey guys,

I'm sorry that I took so long to get back with you on this.
I think it would be easier to post some pictures rather than explaining the difference.
I learned the difference the hard way because I bought a set of running boards that came off of a 2-door extended cab and I have a
4-door extended cab.
The front mounts are pretty much the same, it's the back mounts that are totally different.
This is just another example of how Ford likes to make things complicated.

Hey Ranger Bob,

I just wanted to let you know that the brackets can be swaped out.
I took the brackets off of the 2002 4 -door step bars and put them on the 2008 2 door step bars. (I still have the 2-door bracket if you're interested in them)
The only thing is, you would need to get the top part of the bracket.(It's further back, pretty much on the back of the cab.)
The guy that I bought the 2-door step bars from failed to give me the top mounting bracket but I don't think I would have used them anyway because that's a set up for a 2-door and it would not have supported the weight of the back passengers exiting the truck. You could actually use the 4-door brackets on a 2-door Ranger if you wanted to.
Ford should have just used the 4-door brackets for both trucks, but then that would have made things too easy.
