If you want to add the convenience of being able to comfortably get in and out of your truck, but aren’t a huge fan of nerf bars, there is another alternative: running boards. Instead of the slim, tubular shape of nerf bars, GMC Truck running boards offer a flatter, more continuous look to your truck, almost appearing to be a more “mature” version of nerf bars, if you will. They also provide a much wider step area than do nerf bars, an important factor to consider depending on your specific needs (weight considerations, typical local weather conditions, etc.).
GMC Truck running boards are a highly effective way to combat the effects of rain and snow, because they offer a strong, slip-resistant surface for you to step onto, nullifying the effect that nature might have had on the soles of your shoes. Chrome, stainless steel, and powder-coated steel are typical materials running boards are constructed from, and all of these make for strong, durable steps that can usually withstand weight in excess of 500lbs, making a set of GMC Truck running boards a good choice for anyone.
As far as installation goes, it’s a fairly simple process that requires no drilling and makes use of pre-existing landmarks in your truck’s frame to affix the running boards to. Running boards also act as a safeguard against the threat of impact from adjacent vehicles, particularly in tight parking situations.
These boards flare out from your truck’s body and absorb potential hits from nearby doors, instead of the body suffering the damage.GMC Truck running boards are a good idea, for function as well as style, so pick up a set today.
