Question WTB: Rubber strips for running boards

Where can I buy replacement parts for my newly purchased '97 Dodge Leisure Travel Freedom Widebody

1) replacement rubber strips for the running boards and the entry into the cab
2) complete light fixture for driver's side overhead map light

Give Leisure Travel Vans a call at Phone: 1-204-325-4361
Toll-Free: 1-877-992-9906

They should be able to either sell you the parts or tell you where you might get them locally.

To replace the rubber strips for the running boards I have used this product. It is like sandpaper with adhesive backing to stick to your boards. You should be able to purchase at any hardware store. 3M Outdoor tread, 1" x 5 yards. cut to any length.

I used this 4.5" wide tread to replace the original 5"w tread on my 1998 LTV ('97 dodge): https://www.rvandvansurplus.com/Runn...Trim_c_89.html . It is a suitable replacement (I'm very pleased). You could also use something from Step Treads / Rocker Panel Trims . eBay had 3" treads, but I think I would not have been happy with the final result.

On my "To Do" list. Mine are wider, about 4-5" and also self adhesive non-slip. Might be easier than trying to adhere rubber.

You can get the rubber faced or sandpaper faced material online in rolls or cut sections. Do a search for "stair tread anti slip" or some variation. I got some sandpaper style that way a decade ago to put on our Roadtrek rear bumper where they had the rubber and sun got to it. The sandpaper version doesn't seem to have that problem and still looks good.


Home Depot also used to carry the rubber surface version as a stair tread traction item, but I don't know if they still do.



Our steps into the van are shielded from the sun and are still original, but I have to spray them every year to darken them back up.

I did this to my C with stair tread material from Lowes. They were around $10 each.
