Default Help with Rear Step Pad for a 2009

I am looking to see if anyone has tried to fit the rear step pad on a 2009....it is that black ribbed cover for the rear bumper....to protect it from scratching when taking out luggage from the trunk......MOPAR says the part is for 2001-2006.... & they do not make it anymore for the newer series..will it be a problem to install on a newer PT?

Thanks
Larry

No problem, I have put it on our 2006 & the 2008 both. Just be sure you line up the edges equally. On the 2001 - 2005 you had a indentation to line it up with which make it easier to fit it.

I put one on my 2005 'vert and it was a smart move, although my car is black so you don't notice it that much. The dealer just ordered a 2005 as the 2006 and newer are slightly different.

Cool Re: Help with Rear Step Pad for a 2009

BUT!!!!!
I you are picky like me, IT ISN'T A CLEAN FIT!

(round peg in a square hole!)
I drag my golf clubs and other stuff over the rear bumper all the time.
So, I found a customized, great fitting alternative!
I roughened the paint in the trimmed area; then went to Line-X and had them spray a bed liner on that area.
See the links...(you can even add a logo or name)

I am looking for one of these step pads for my 2006 wagon. Aside from the dealer are there any after market ones out there? Seems like it is a lot more difficult to find anything for the 2006+ models and especially the Turbo GT. Love that Line-X idea may defiantly look into that, need to find a local dealer.

Hi, I was wondering what do you mean by "IT ISN'T A CLEAN FIT!." My 2008 PT has some scratches on its rear bumper, and I really like to install the rear bumper step-pad. Since Mopar didn't make it for 2006-10 version, I'm not sure if I should buy the one they have for 2001-05 pt. Thanks!

What he means is,it does not look right.The 2006 and newer cars have the recessed area on the rear bumper and the step pad does not line up with that area so it looks funny.It will work but if you are picky about fitment you will not be happy with it.
