Hey, those look great! I think it makes the van look lower and sleeker. Do the hands-free sensors for the sliding doors still work with those installed?

My only concern would be the van body now sticks way out past the tires down low.

@Sully_375, my wife is disable and we had to buy the 2022 Pacifica because it was the only vehicle we found that she could get in/out of w/o running boards. Her issue was that most running boards did not allow her to get enough of her foot on them to support her weight on the ball of her foot instead of supporting her weight on just her toes.

Now she's having issues getting in/out of the sliding doors, but she can still get in/out of the front doors, so these steps look nice. Where did you get them, if you don't mind my asking?

In case Sully_375 doesn't respond, I found this item for a '22 Pacifica on the Mopar website. Temporarily discounted.

Thanks @PacificaMinivanFan! I noticed this comment, "These running boards are not compatible with vehicles equipped with Hands-free Sliding Doors (XZ3)." and my Pacifica is equipped with the hands-free sliding doors. I wonder if it just means that the sensor is blocked and therefor won't work, or if it will try to open the doors because it senses the running board? Or just flat out won't mount. I'd give up the hands-free opening feature.

Perhaps someone smarter than me can answer this question. Anyone?

This is why, the running boards don’t have the sensor on them where you would activate the self opening door with your foot. You can probably still install but the set opening feature will not operate

That's my guess too.....that feature wouldn't work anymore and/or they might block the sensor (when installed) and then it might show "sensor blocked" every time you start the car.
Just a guess though

Looks great i may consider a set myself as they look well designed and actually belong thereo
They stick out pretty wide when viewed from behind. Saw two today at a rest stop in way to FL.
