DEADLINE IS THE 31ST OF AUGUST!!!!!
Running boards, Iron Cross makes them and we want them. I called Iron Cross directly and they will not sell to us directly. I called 2 online retailers and both told me that Iron Cross won't allow them to be sold under MSRP or MAP and they could lose their license to sell them if they got caught. I called 2 different eBay sellers that were licensed to sell them and got the same response. I called Iron Cross again and they told me to call CARiD(.com) and talk to them.
So I got hold of CARiD and talked the, for about half an hour and set up a very broad deal. When I priced a set for myself I was quoted $470 shipped with brackets. Not a bad deal, but we are stronger as a whole so why not use it to our advantage right?
10 and up is $365
He told me if we hit 15 (I doubt we will) then he would get us some more prices. Those again DO include the brackets and all that will be needed is shipping on top of that.
All shipping is actual shipping cost and through UPS. They ship through them and it will fluctuate depending on where you live. They have several warehouses around the US so it should be pretty close to the same for everyone though.
To make it clear, this is for item Number: 281058
Per their website: Ford Excursion 2000-2005, Textured Black HD Steps by Iron Cross®, 1 Pair. Give your truck steps with the Heavy-Duty look it deserves and at the same time make it easier to get in and out of the cab. These steps are as a tough as they look. This kit includes all brackets and hardware, as well as the necessary braces, clamps and plates.
Wolffe told me several times that YES these come with everything. They will be ready to bolt on straight out of the box. The only thing we will need are the tools. For your own peace of mind ask him as well when you call just to have a little of your own sanity (thanks for the idea Sarge).
