Tube Steps - Running Boards Questions and Answers

  • Are There Weight Ratings on Tube Steps for a 2008 Toyota Highlander
  • I contacted DeeZee and Westin to see if there is a weight rating limit on the tube steps. At DeeZee, all of their tube steps/running boards are tested up to 350 pounds and Westin didn't have a weight rating. The person I spoke with at Westin has tube steps and is 250 pounds and they accommodate him just fine. My co-worker has Westin tube steps on his SUV and he is between 250-270 and hasn't had any issues with the tube steps bending. I really like the DeeZee running boards # DZ16202-16260...

  • Tube Side Steps Availability For 2015 Ford F-150
  • The side steps we offer for your 2015 Ford F-150 are manufactured by Carr like part # CARR103991. The hoop style steps attach to the rocker panels on your F-150 and are made of zinc-plated steel. We do not carry tube steps made by other manufacturers at this time. I called my contact at Bestop and they said they do not have a step that will fit, but will most likely make steps in the near future, although they had no expected date when that would be complete.

  • Running Board Recommendation for a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The best solution I can provide for you would be to remove your current running boards and then go with the # CARR121241 that you referenced or for the ultimate step I would go with the Bestop PowerBoard Motorized Running Boards # B7512215. These will automatically drop down 6 inches and go out 2 inches when the door is open to make getting in and out of your 2010 Wrangler easier.

  • Rear Mounted Truck Bed Step for 2005 Nissan Titan
  • Bestop doesn't make a Trek Step that's compatible with the Nissan Titan, but there are some other options available. If your Titan is equipped with a 2 inch receiver, there are plenty of hitch mounted steps available. Some, like the Pilot # CR-600 or the Carr # CARR183012 would be used with the tailgate closed. Other choices, like the Heininger # HE4045 is extendable so it can be used with the tailgate open. Convert-A-Ball and Topline offer alternatives that would bolt to the inside...

  • Installing Switch so Bestop PowerBoard Running Boards Can Be Turned On and Off on 2014 Ram
  • I spoke with my Bestop Representative, who tells me that the know of no way to temporarily disable the PowerBoards. My thought was to use a switch like part # PK34212 to interrupt the power connection to the battery, which is shown in step # 22 of the instructions I've linked for you. You could install the switch on the dash, have the switch 'ON' for when your wife uses the truck, have it 'OFF' when you're driving it. Keep in mind that installing the power steps in ANY manner other...

  • Bestop Powerboard NX Wireless Running Boards Will Not Work with Front Passenger Door
  • Since the Bestop Powerboards, # B7564115, still work properly with the rear door it sounds like the problem is with the connection (sensor) associated with the front door. Also check the wire connections. Look for any loose connections, frayed or pinched wires, or any corrosion that could be causing a lost connection. If the sensor was knocked out of position or is missing then that would be the problem.

  • Would the Westin PRO TRAXX Oval Nerf Bars Interfere with Side Pipes
  • I spoke to my contact at Westin and he informed me that the PRO TRAXX Oval Nerf Bars # 21-23515 that you referenced are only cab length, meaning that they stop at the back of the truck's cab, so they shouldn't interfere with your side mounted exhaust as systems like that usually exit right in front of the rear wheels. He wasn't able to give me an exact length though.

  • Recommended Tube Step for a 2011 Ram Big Horn Crew Cab
  • That's a good question as it is asked quite often. Rocker panels are very strong and I am confident you won't have any issues once you attach tube steps. An attachment to the frame isn't an option on most vehicles because of the long distance from the frame out to the sides of the truck. The Westin Pro Traxx stainless steel nerf bars # 21-23560 are a solid choice. The enclosed ends will prevent internal corrosion and I think you will like the non-slip, top mounted pads because they...

  • How Far DeeZee # DZ3700301 Universal Fit Nerf Bar Extends from Vehicle
  • The DeeZee Universal Nerf Bars are 19.68 inches deep, from the ends of the step bars to the furthest point away from the mounts, as you can see in the photo I've edited for you. The bars can be cut down if you wish so they don't extend from the frame as much.
