Anyone know where I can buy a new “Honda Running Boards (CR-V)
Part# 08L33-S9A-100B” ? Been searching this for sometime & don’t why it’s discontinued. I’d be grateful for the assistance.

I can tell you if you do go with EBAY # 311385267374 you will have to modify the brackets they stick out way too far ,the inner side of the bars are past the tire it looks funny and probably be tripping on them,you have to cut 2" off the passenger side brackets because they hit the exhaust and drill a 5/16 hole in all 4 brackets and make 4 2" x 3" flat steel or aluminum i used 1/8" thick aluminum from Menards 1/8 x 2" x 36", plenty strong plus you really aren't going to be standing on them I weigh 200 and they flex a little but ok ,drill 4 holes in the plate so after you make 1 with the correct spacing you have a template for the other 3 that you make ,run 2 5/16 bolts with washers from top so the top of the bolts will be pressing into the floor board and keeps them from spinning when tightening the nuts from the bottom, extends the brackets 2" or so inward it looks good now I did my 2005 and my wifes 2006 it went a lot smoother on the 2006 after doing it once already, also get a 8mm tap and wd40 or trans fluid or pb blaster to clean the holes,they get crusty and the bolts wont go into the 3 factory 8mm holes, at least here in the Chicago's corrosion but they make the vehicle look much better and hide the exhaust on the passenger side, I can take some pictures if you want it turned out good and hopefully this post will help anybody else in the future that gets the Chinese bars that have little to no adjustment
