Running Boards Overview

Running Boards Installed in CT

Truck Running Boards are a popular accessory for many pickup truck owners. These boards, which are mounted to the underside of the truck, provide a step up into the cab or bed of the truck, making it easier to climb in and out. If you're in the market for running boards for your truck, there are a few things to consider before making your purchase.

Types of Running Boards

There are several different types of running boards available, including:

  1. Nerf Bars: These are tubular running boards that are mounted to the underside of the truck. They are typically made from stainless steel or aluminum and provide a durable, sturdy step.

  2. Side Steps: These are flat running boards that are mounted directly to the truck's frame or rocker panel. They provide a larger, more stable step than nerf bars.

  3. Power Running Boards: These are motorized running boards that extend when the door is opened and retract when the door is closed. They are a more expensive option but provide a sleek, high-tech look.


Truck running boards can be made from a variety of materials, including aluminum, stainless steel, and plastic. Aluminum running boards are lightweight and durable, making them a popular choice for many truck owners. Stainless steel running boards are heavier but provide a sleek, polished look. Plastic running boards are less expensive but may not be as durable as other materials.


Truck running boards come in a range of styles, from simple and functional to flashy and eye-catching. The style you choose will depend on your personal preference and the overall look of your truck.


If you're not experienced with automotive installations, it's best to have a professional handle the installation to ensure that the running boards are mounted properly and securely. Professional installation can also help to prevent damage to the truck's frame or rocker panels.
