Does anyone know of any running boards besides the chrome tubular assist steps? We saw those in the showroom and they're okay, but are a bit chunky and look like something that'd be on a pickup. We'd like something a little sleeker that integrates with the body better.

Hard to tell from the pic in that link if they're the same as we saw. But what we saw is definitely what's currently shown on the Acadia accessories page

(Go to http://www.gmc.com/acadia/acadia/index.jsp hit Accessories, then on the popup floating menu click the rightmost image in the 2nd row of images)

Those dont mount flush with the body, and don't go all the way to the wheel wells.

I see what you mean--they look like the same ones to me.

I guess your best bet is to either wait and see from the aftermarket folks, or contact the aftermarket suppliers and let them know there is a ready market and tell them the kind you'd like. You could be the "ping" they need to make happen quicker.

In the gallery at enclaveforum.net, I noticed an enclave with nice integrated running boards. I wonder if these are available for the Acadia as well? Or even how they'd look...

That's what I'd want to have on the Acadia, I don't like the chrome design. If anyone does add the Enclave running boards to the Acadia, please post a picture!

ha.. no it really is two colors, it was part of a buick test drive show or something i cant remember exactly..
oh and the enclaves integrated assist steps will NOT work for the acadia because it replaces part of the bottom trim and the enclave and acadia have all different sheet metal.. so it wouldnt fit right
