Get the beefiest of boosts into your ride with the Go Industries Rancher Rugged Steps Running Boards. Like hiring Lou Ferrigno and Joe Piscopo as your personal man servants, these burly boards give your tired legs the lift they need to hop into your rig.
Unlike most running boards out on the road, not a single dinky ingredient is used to construct your Rancher Rugged Step set—no flimsy plastic, no flaky chrome plating, and no molded stepping pads. These bad boys are all steel from stem to stern. Their perimeter is formed from 2" steel tubing while the center section is made up from rows of 2" steel slats that let any gunk on your boots sluice through rather than get tracked in.
Thanks to their massive 8.25" wide stepping surface, you always enjoy sure footing with Go Industries Rancher Rugged Step Running Boards. Plus, they come with custom-designed mounting brackets for a pain-free, no-drill install. And, Go Industries backs your Rugged Step Running Boards with a 3-year workmanship warranty and a 6-month finish warranty.

This is a good product that used to be better. It only comes with side mounts and confusing instructions. This was a replacement due to rust out after about 5 years. highly recommend mud guards to protect the steps from tire spray. For my installation, I kept the two frame mounts from prior set of these steps and added the three fender mounts. one mount had the hole covered by a rubber plug while the other two had the per-threaded bolts. would recommend 3 frame mounts if available.

These running boards are very sturdy and I like the grate style that allows mud and dirt to fall through to the group. Also, the boards are coated with something very similar to LineX. If you have LineX in your bed these match nicely. The only downside is the instructions are remind me of an IKEA set of instructions, as in they were not the easiest to follow.

They are great boards, they look good on the truck and I am pleased with them as a whole. However, the no drill doesn't apply on this truck. The rear passenger side did not have the hole in the frame so I built a bracket like the one supplied for the driver side. The driver side bracket for the rear had to be modified because the bracket was built to go over the frame at a place other than where the frame weld was(wider here). Again good boards, install not so good.

THe installation directions are a contradictory mess - you'll spend more time staring at them and the parts list than you will actually installing the running boards. But it was worth the hassle. THey toughen up the look of your truck.

This is the second truck Ive put these steps on. Had my other truck 5 years, survived abuse, never slick with snow and ice, put them on in less than an hour by myself. Your crazy not to buy these!

Don't be fooled, these boards are no longer a smooth coated finish. The mud scraper brackets are "NOT INCLUDED". They mount to the rocker panels and inner body not the frame. I needed to place a piece of wood between the slats as not to bend metal. Sure they look tough, but I have my doubts due to where they mount. I have my personel issues with the "new" styling and accessories not included, but these were the look I wanted.

I ordered my Rugged Steps in January and they arrived in about a week. It only took me about 1 hour to install. The only real problem I had was getting a mounting bolt loose from my truck. Other than that they look great and the directions were pretty straight forward. Even for a Carpenter. Very Pleased!!

These are tough, heavy duty running boards. Not smooth and sleek. All steel construction. Although my truck was pre-drilled, it is four years old and some of the nuts were rusted. I could not install myself. I took it to my local garage and they did it for $100. They had to cut out the old nuts and tap weld new ones in place. Something to consider. We had heavy slushy snow here in Michigan that clogged up between the rail grating. Noticeable, but melted. My kids and wife love them.

The overall design is good. However, the bolts on the t-brackets are spot welded on 2 sides instead of welded all the way around. When I was installing them, 2 of these brackets broke just from tightening them mildly. The inner fins running from front to back bend when you are tightening the t brackets so i had to put a piece of wood in-between them so they wouldn't. Customer service was ok. Emailed them and told them about the broken bracket and they sent 2 more right away but no phone call or follow up. I like them but the design needs to be changed and a torque spec on tightening them would be nice.
