Running boards for trucks and SUVs are very popular car accessories for many makes and models 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.
There are two types of running boards on the market: Those that come with lights, and those that do not. Which type you choose will depend partly on your personal taste, but lighted running boards can be useful especially if you park in dark areas - if you have a remote starter for your truck all of your lights can be turned on, including your running board lights, before you get to your vehicle. Running boards are a safety bonus and add an aesthetic value to your vehicle.
Running boards can be made from a variety of materials depending on the model selected. They include: heavy duty polymer materials, rugged ABS molded board, heavy duty aluminum, durable fiberglass, chrome or diamond plated.
