Just enough for a toe hold, but they do help to keep the rocks and mud off the lower portion and I like the look
I prefer the look of the factory running boards over any of the aftermarket ones I've found. In your opinion, are the factory ones worth the price, either for their intended use as an assist step or as a splash/rock guard? How sturdy are they? Would you mind posting some pics of your Blazer? There aren't many pics available online of the factory running boards installed.

Apparently I was told that these are on indefinite back order. No idea what that means. Stock # appears to be: 42491246
This is off topic, but who gave you that information? With a quick search, I found one place that says they have them in stock and ready to ship tomorrow. Interestingly, I've found contradictory information regarding fitment. Some say part number 42491246 fits 2022 LT models, some say they don't. Can anyone confirm these fit 2022 LTs?

I was told this by the accessories manager who talked to the parts department when I puchased the vehicle on Wednesday this week. I did not get the part # from him, I found that online, but I was told the stock issue from him.

I'm not a fan of the look. It doesn't do anything as far as aesthetic value for me. Maybe if the vehicle had a higher stance off the ground, but these bring the whole vehicle, visually, too close to the ground. It takes away the sporty look and tames it too much. I just don't think this vehicle should have running boards. Just my opinion.

Now, all of these things, mods, are subjective. If it fits your needs and jazzes your appetite, then it's a good thing. I'm not a fan of the glow tie or the spacers on the wheels to bring the tire out more. I would rather actually just buy, and will once I wear these 21s out, buy a wider tire to gain a wider footprint. Just a little more profile on the width will do it for me. I don't want to push the sidewall beyond the wheel well too far, but I do want to gain a wider stance for a more aggressive footprint.

I liked the digital image of the concept Blazer that was lowered on this forum. I'm not a fan of that look and wouldn't do it, but that rendering looked awfully nice. I do wish the Blazer stood a bit taller.
