Running Boards For Trucks - What You Need to Know Before You Purchase the Best Kind


Are running boards for trucks really built to provide a strong foot area you can depend upon? Do they make your truck look like a truck - rugged, tough, sturdy? Or are they a just a fashion accessory that is a fad with truck owners?
The fact is millions of pick up trucks have nerf bars and step up boards as part of the cab. Besides safety, the good thing about running boards is that they are very popular truck accessories. In the after care market, most running boards are built so that most pick up truck owners can install them easily and speedily. And, with the right combination, you can make your truck look sharp, too.
What Materials Form Running Boards?
Running boards for trucks are made with varying materials like steel, stainless steel and chrome. There are some brands made of clad aluminum and polyethylene.
The load capacity ranges anywhere from 300 to 500 pounds, so double check that you get the capacity you require.
You can choose a shiny, dull or matte finish. There are lighted running boards that have a small light that shines under the door, so that you can see the step at night.
Each material adds strength and style to your truck. The surface of each board can be smooth or rough - with an abrasive set of non-slip strips to prevent slipping. Grooved patterns drain water away from the stepping surface. You can also clear your soles of the dirt and grime off before entering, so you protect the carpet and floor mats.
Here Is What To Look For
You need to add the right size and width to match the size of your truck. If you have a one-ton truck with a four wheel rear axle, you don't want to install thin or narrow boards. Your truck would look cheap and out of balance.
No, you want an accessory that matches the character and color of your truck. In fact, a truck without running boards looks like something is missing. The cab appearance seems to be incomplete compared to trucks parked nearby.
Make sure to check out the guarantee you get when you buy your boards online. Some manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty, others have a three year warranty on mild steel products.
What are the Best Types for Trucks?
The best brands include Romik, Westin, Dee Zee, Challenger, Nasta, Gladiator, Ionic Railway and Billet running boards. Most running boards are built exactly to fit the make, model and year of your truck.
So, if you own a Ford, Chevy, Toyota, Dodge, Honda, Acura, GMC, or other make of truck, all you have to do is order the boards made for your vehicle.
Why is that important? The reason is that these boards come with custom mounting hardware that attach directly into factory-drilled holes in your truck frame. You don't have to drill holes. All you have to do is line up the parts and fasten the bolts until they are secure.
Summary
Running boards for trucks are very popular for many makes and models of trucks that provide a safe stepping surface and make your truck look sharp. When you know what to look for when you buy them, you can find discounts and deals and make sure you put the best set on your pick up truck.
