Door Dings vs Running Boards

For the piloteers that have running boards , do the boards provide enough protrusion to stop door dings? Hopefully the boards have more than one function

Did not notice that. I always park far enough from the nearby car, or right in the middle of two cars to avoid being hit by idiots.

Running board does not stop doors.

Perhaps the OP meant door moldings? 🙂

when i bought and installed mine i had hoped it would and not sure if it does, i had a Nissan quest park next to me and while i was sitting inside my pilot, the passenger on the Nissan hit my car twice with the door and i could hear it, when i went to check on it, there was no dings or scratches but i am sure they hit hard enough for me to be concerned.

Running boards don't protrude out far enough to help with door dings.

Running boards will not help protect against door dings. But maybe this window decal will make them think twice-

Did you say anything to the person about their careless behavior?

I cringe at the thought of someone denting my doors. I Park on the other side of the planet to avoid this.

I understand many people are reluctant to confront someone acting like an "idiot," but I'm not that shy. People who exhibit a careless disregard for other folk's property will continue to do so unless confronted about the issue.

I always check my vehicles for door dings/scratches/dents when returning to where it's been parked.

Don't you just hate it when you park way out in left field somewhere and return to find someone has parked their vehicle right next to yours?

What is it with people? Just a need to bust someone's ass?

Now don't get me started on the idiots who park in such a way to occupy (2) parking spots. In that case I say feel free to "ding away."

Good luck with that.

Life is too short (and dangerous) to try to inspire good manners with the ignorant. I think there is little correlation between someone that inherently stupid/selfish to begin with, and the likelihood a confrontation will curtail future misbehavior.

I've learned this lesson the hard way, and given the level of violence, tension, aggression, HAIR-TRIGGER TEMPERS, and the preponderance of personal weaponry in this nation, I usually turn the other cheek. Heck, it's a door ding, it ain't like a Honda CUV is a museum piece.

Though I would agree, beating the daylights out of a "two spot parker" sounds almost worth the risk.

I was going to put these on my Pilot for protection from ignorant shopping mall parkers.

I once worked with a fellow who lost out on a parking spot tug-of-war to another vehicle in a mall parking lot. When the driver of the other car got out, flipped him off and went into the store; my co-worker proceeded to use his tire iron to smash up the other guy's car windows.

He felt good at the time, but had to deal with the repercussions later.

optivity has been known to have a rather BIG mouth, which has caused him problems at times; but sometimes I just can't help myself.

Whatever that filter is between one's brain & mouth just didn't seem to take quite right with me.
