These boards (stainless) look amazing on my wife's MDX; however, they would benefit greatly from an additional (center) mounting bracket like the OEM ones have -- the frame holes are already there, why not add another bracket to this kit? I'm 200 lbs and they flex quite a bit if I put any of my weight on them. Regardless...they still work great for both my 3-year old son and wife...my primary reasons for installing them. The install was fairly painless but for the floating L-bolts (4 of them) that bolt to body panel weeping holes. These are a bit of a pain as it is difficult to hold the mounting bracket, washer, and lock washer in place while threading the nut and trying to prevent the bolt from pushing up into the body panel -- by the fourth one I got the hang of it, but a third hand for this step would be very useful. If your car has any kind of rust on the bottom you best have a tap and die set on hand for this install, as I can see these mounting holes getting corroded very quickly. The bottom of my car is in great condition, yet several of the frame holes were starting to show signs of rust.
