APS Running Boards, Side Steps & Nerf Bars

Outfit your vehicle with sleek nerf bars that grab attention on the highway. Make every trip to the lake better for your family with awesome side steps. Customize your favorite 4x4 with heavy-duty APS running boards. At AutoAnything, we carry a full range of APS nerf bars, running boards and side steps for any type of vehicle, including sports cars, SUVs, trucks and Jeeps.

Best Running Board Styles

The best aftermarket nerf bars for your vehicle depend on several factors: where you ride, how rugged you want to go and what model you’re buying for. For off-road performance, it’s important to choose heavy-duty nerf bars that can stand up to impacts without deforming.

Other modders mainly want something that looks epic. APS nerf bars and running boards come in a huge variety of styles. Whether you love burning rubber, spend your free time at the lake or use your truck for work, it’s not hard to find side steps that fit your lifestyle.

Ground clearance is another factor that off-roaders should consider. Retractable running boards are one solution for improving clearance. They automatically retract while driving and extend when you exit the vehicle.

How To Install Nerf Bars

The installation process for APS nerf bars varies depending on the vehicle’s make, model and year. You can often replace cheap factory “running boards” with high-quality aftermarket parts quickly. Usually, you need to install a pair of mounts first, and then the running boards attach to the mounts with bolts.

Many manufacturers pre-drill brackets where nerf bars are installed. Vehicle owners can generally handle the installation in their home garages.

How To Maintain Your Side Steps

Side steps for Jeeps can get pretty dirty, especially if you love spending time off-road. Jeep tires tend to spray side steps and running boards with mud and slush. If you usually take your vehicle to a car wash, give your running boards some extra attention.

To keep side steps clean, start by rinsing away as much dirt as possible. Then, use a mild cleaning solution, bucket and rag to apply the cleaning solution. If needed, scrub grooves with a brush. Finally, rinse and let air dry.
