Bestop PowerBoard Electric Running Boards Customer Reviews

Walking on the moon was one small step for man, but the Bestop PowerBoard is one giant leap for mankind's electric running boards. Unlike stationary running boards, Bestop PowerBoards are retractable running boards. Open your door, and it drops down 6" for a comfortable stepping platform into your cockpit. Close your door, and it tucks up against your rocker panel for maximum ground clearance and a sleeker bodyline. Magic!
Whether you're hopping out of the driver's seat or helping your kids up into the back seat, the PowerBoard Electric Running Boards are there to lend a hand. They span the entire length of your cab and swing into action when any door gets opened—driver and passenger side. And, the integrated LED lights automatically switch on for safe nighttime stepping.
Besides being fully mechanized, your Bestop PowerBoard Electric Running Boards are built tougher than the average running board. They're wrought from 6.25" wide extruded aluminum with an anti-corrosive powder coating and a non-slip texture. And, the cast aluminum drop arms are strong enough to shoulder up to 600 lbs per side. Plus, everything is fully weatherproofed and rigorously tested to ensure years of dependability.
Custom designed for your rig, Bestop PowerBoard Electric Running Boards come complete with everything you need for a secure, no-drill installation. They're even backed by an industry-leading 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.

These arrived in a rugged box, and work great after installed. I dont have a garage anymore, but the shop LOVED putting them on and displayed my truck in front of their door the rest of the day to sow the boards off.

I had the boards installed and in less than a year I have removed the boards and am in the process of getting in contact with the company to send them back. The front "idler" linkages ALWAYS hung 2 and a half to 3 inches down. called the company and was told "oh well you need to high pressure wash them and oil them constantly." and they have sent me replacements. well little less than a year and taking them off twice having professionals look at them the driverside "Idler" torn the panel

I've had the boards on my truck for a couple weeks now and they seem to work great i love the fact that i can keep the look of having no steps but i have nice big steps for my wife and kids when needed. price was hard to swallow but AUTOANYTHING has always taking care of me. install was a little tougher then needed do to the instructions being a bit unclear could def. improve on that. but i was able to install them by myself

These boards are awesome and I've gotten a 100 compliments. Because they rest flush under the body, it make my truck look taller than the factory boards. Only two complaints I have is I would like to see one additional center support bracket as insurance against bending at the center. The other is the wiring harness didn't line up very well and when trying to cut back the loom for better placement, I wasn't able to get anymore slack needed due to factory splicing. Need more slack for LEDs.

Great quality. Easy to follow install instructions. Only issue was motors were too tight to the body so connectors would not fit. Hard wired motors to wiring harness and all was good. Really love how they fit and operate. AutoAnything was amazing to work with and delivery was almost overnight. thank you

The running boards are just the ticket for a hunter or mudder. They are folded up against the truck when running through the muck and mud. They fold out lower than the normal fixed step. My wife loves them since she can now dismount like a lady without having to slid to the ground. She also loves the LED lighting for night entrance. Great item and I wish I had installed them earlier.

These are exceptionally well build and look amazing on my Black truck. You can hardly notice they are there..I can't wait for my lift kit as these steps will split the difference and become a smooth stepping transition into the cab. (Might be too low if no lift was intended)...

Great product, quality manufacturer, form, function and fit are flawless. Everything worked correct the first time with no hassles, all items bolted up, all items worked as expected. The only thing I would change is the directions concerning the diodes, the directions do not state specifically which vehicle the diodes go to, you had to look very closely in the wiring diagrams and notice a picture in the center top of the page with a box around it that shows which vehicle they go to, I think a color in that box would clear up the confusion perfectly

the instructions were for someone that has done this before.I had problems with the first step because you had to be under the truck to understand it.I followed the instructions to the letter and it took 10 hours to complete. when I installed the fuse , it blew.I had to take it to a shop and pay a mechanic.We took it all apart and started over.We found the module under the hood was plugged in backwards.This should'nt be possibe.Please design a plug that can only be installed one way!!!!

Had two problems, one was the packing on the wiring box was marked for an F-150 this was a concern since I have a Silverado. The next is that back bracket on the driverside interfers with the hand brake cable were the two cables come together, needed to install rubber around the cable to keep it from ratteling. The boards work great, just think there could have been more thought put into the mounting of the back bracket on driverside.
