What is the difference between with factory running boards and without factory running boards?


Expert Reply:

The Husky Liner Custom Molded Mud Flaps, # HL57661, that you referenced are designed to mount on your Ford Escape with or without factory installed running boards.

On the 2009 Ford Escape, the running boards would be the factory installed steps mounted on the outside of the vehicle and below the doors. Running boards will usually run from the front edge of the front door to the rear edge of the last door.

Factory running board are usually more streamlined and fit the contour of the vehicle's body.Some factory running boards will be painted the same color as the vehicle. Aftermarket running boards, like # 23-3365 from Westin, look sturdier and are made of polished aluminum or a powder coated steel.
