Chrome/stainless rear bumper step pad/load sill

Hi there, just picked up an 07 GL450 and want to put on the chrome/stainless step pad that goes on top of the bumper. I've seen this thread topic on here before but some of the info is hard to decrypt. First is it called a load sill protector or step pad? second does anyone have a part number? I've been to some of hte websites recommended for buying them but none have pictures so how do you know what your getting? I found step pad for $35 but some of the other threads are saying $200+ so just wondering if anyone has a clear decisive look at this.

Thanks!

I paid $230 at the local dealer for a 2010 GL450 chrome step pad expecting to install it on my ML350 using mounting tape. I removed the tabs on the underside of the step pad in preparation to mount it, but found to my dismay that the GL bumper radius curvature is less than that of the ML; it won't fit.
The step pad including a roll of heavy duty weather resistant mounting tape are yours for $150. Pry off your present pad, use the mounting tape to mount this new one in its place.

I'll buy it from you. Would paypal be okay with you?

I had it done on our GL 2008 both front and back chrome.
It is called engine cover and bumber cover.
It was standard part of OFF road package but you can get it separate.
Had it installed by MB dealer.
It lasted long and looked like new after 3 harsh winter.

'07 GL450
I just installed an A164 884 01 90 chrome bumper bad on my '07 GL450. Bought the part used for $45 shipped, so although there is a small gap due to differing radii, I think it will be fine for the price on a 10 year old truck!
I snapped/cut off the tabs, applied 3M double-stick tape (one layer on horizontal, two on vertical) and slapped it on! Approximately a 3 mm gap on the outside edges, but with all the tape I put on, it'll be fine. Pics:
