Add style to your truck or SUV with Bestop power running boards. It's a common scene. You're stepping up to your pickup after a long day of hard work, or maybe you're just carrying a few bags of groceries, or you could be trying to corral three kids into the cab while talking on your phone and lugging their sports gear at the same time. Bestop electric retracting truck steps are built for every day on the off the road us.
If you're going to invest in some top quality step boards (and you need to), Bestop Running Boards are an excellent option for adding some technological flair to your step each and every time you get in or out of your truck. They automatically lower when your doors are open and you need them, and then automatically retract as soon as your doors are closed so they stay out of the way.
Bestop PowerBoard Electric Running Boards are built with sound functionality in mind, and while the idea isn't necessarily just to look like you've got something out of Star Wars attached to the bottom of your pickup, we have to admit that they do look pretty awesome. Any time we see a truck pull up with the doors opening and these things lowering, we half expect Luke Skywalker and Han Solo to come strolling out. Not only do they look like they're from the future, but they're also the kind of powered step boards you'd expect an inter-galaxy hero to have.
All that coolness is a waste though if they don't hold up. Fortunately, Bestop PowerBoard Electric Running Boards are so durable that we almost suspect they're made out of the same exterior material as the Deathstar. They're actually constructed from high quality corrosion resistant materials and the motor in each is completely weather-resistant, so there's no need to worry about rain, snow, or ice putting them out of commission.
Furthermore, Bestop PowerBoard Electric Running Boards are not only easy to use, they're easy to install; however, it is recommended that you have them installed by a professional. All the wiring, mounting hardware, and instructions are included though, which is definitely a big help in streamlining the process required to get these out of the box and onto your truck or SUV where they belong. When retracted, they rest flush behind the rocker panels of your vehicle, safe and out of the way. Retractable truck steps are out of the way, when not in use.
With 600lbs of weight load capacity, heavy duty construction, and highly convenient design, these are the running boards you want if you're gunning for something top of the line. There are few investments you can make for your pickup more worthwhile than a pair of these powered running boards, and we can wholeheartedly stand behind (or on top of) them when we say they're worth every last penny.

|These were a challenge to install but, for an advanced DIYer it's doable. Wiring was easy. The steps are solid and I'm comfortable putting full weight on them. Nice and wide, I'm very happy with them. Make sure you keep everything loose when installing until after you mount the step. Lining everything up is tricky but if you keep it loose it will be much easier. This was mentioned in the instructions but it wasn't completely clear.|

|The instructions are very good & the installation is relatively smooth. I ran into an issue where I needed to modify the wiring harness when installing. |
I have a SuperCrew. I needed to do 2 things:
1) I needed to reposition where the trigger wires come out of the harness to get them to route to the rear door. (Steps 12 - 15 in instructions)
2) I had to add extensions to the led lights in order to position them according step 21.
I also had an issue where the driver's side door activated the step incorrectly. i.e. closing the door deployed the step. Opening retracted the step. I called Bestop customer support & they made great suggestions what to check. They speculated that someone installed the door ajar switch from a later model F150 because it used reverse method for grounding. I have not been able to check this, so I have not connected the trigger wire for that door yet.
