WHY are these so EXPENSIVE?

Can someone please tell me why a pair of Mopar Factory Side Steps should be worth $400?
Am I missing something?

Exactly they are MOPAR. It gets even worse if you have the dealer install them.

Is there a number I can contact him at? Or is that just a website?

"Why?" is a very good question. Seems like they would get lost on a trail somewhere relatively quickly. Definitely a Mopar thing.

Got mine from Amazon but a different style for $263 with free shipping.

Fits my 2015 Wrangler Sport perfectly.
