I am sure you can find it online....I just install mine yesterday, took me about 2 hours because I had to be really careful not to break any plastic/clips, running broad itself is very easy to do, no need to jack up the car . I got to say these plastic panels are really thin and breaks easy. I broke one tap on the under dash cover, thank god I had plastic repair kit with me and was able to fix it.

I like how it looks and surprised how bright that little LED was...

Thanks! Did the same build with my modern steel '17 touring. 73" fit, probably have another couple of inches before reaching mudflaps. purchased on amazon ~$300, free shipping.

This looks good. Like the blackout look.

There is about 1/2" gap between my pilot and the Romik RB2. I like the build quality but not the gap. Thinking about returning it.
For those that has the OEM running board or from other manufacturers, is there gap in between? How big is the gap?

I purchased these from Amazon for $409 last May, they are $299 now. They have a half inch gap but you cant see it unless you really try. I didn't want the larger OEM one. The only draw back is the chrome strip is not one solid piece. No issues yet in Atlanta weather.


They are not OEM but OEM Style

If you look carefully there's a very tiny gap on the Oem boards. Nothing worth noticing imo. If anything water runs off properly. Only thing I don't like about the boards are they aren't wide enough.

What's the reason for using the MDX bracket than the Regular 2016 Pilot bracket?

If you're asking for the Aries Running Board, Aries didn't have brackets in 2016 for the Pilot. But from doing research we figured that the 2014-16 Acura MDX shared the same chassis as the Pilot thus the mounting brackets would be the same and would work.

I think Aries might of figured this out by now and added the brackets to the lineup using the MDX brackets but now with a specific parts # for the Pilot...

Thanks for clearing that up.. I guess they now have a different bracket for the Pilot. Guess i'll just follow the guide and order this new bracket. Thanks

This evening I noticed the front LED light is out for the passengers side running board. Has anyone replaced this part themselves? Is it a difficult procedure for an average person to do?

At HondaPartsNow.com it looks as if I need replacement part:

Honda Part No.: 34761-TZ3-A02 (for) LIGHT ASSY., L. PUDDLE $43.33

It appears this part will fit both front/back & left/right side running boards.

I'm game to crawl under the running board & replace the LED if the replacement task(s) aren't too extensive, otherwise I guess I'll have to use dealer service.

Are there any instruction/steps published to replace the LED? Thanks for your help.
