swap running boards out

I have a 2008 X3 with factory installed running boards. Does anyone know what parts I need to swap these out? Looks like a cover, support, and maybe wheel arches?

Or, does anyone want to swap for my running boards with the parts from their non-running board equipped vehicle, preferably local...?

Or, buy me the replacement parts and take them...

Would love to but not local. Shipping would be a nightmare.

Why do you want to change them?

swap running boards out

There is a how-to DIY for this posted within the last couple of years.

And where is "local?"

My wife uses it to commute and she doesn't like stepping over the running boards, especially in a skirt!

I am in Boston.
