Video Transcript for Aries AeroTread Running Boards Installation - 2016 Honda Pilot

Speaker 1: Today, on this 2016 Honda Pilot, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Aries AeroTread Running Boards with Custom Installation Kit. Part number AA2051029. Here's what our running boards look like installed. Now, the reason you're going to want a set of running boards for your vehicle is not only do they add a stylish look to it, but they also make it a lot easier for you to get in and out of it as well.These run the full length of your passenger compartment, so it makes it easy for your back seat passengers to get in too. We have this nice plastic step surface, which is 5" deep from the very back of it to the very front of it, which makes a wide path for your foot to make contact with. So you don't have to worry about slipping and falling as you're getting in and out of the vehicle.

The outer construction is a polished stainless steel, which gives us a nice look. The inner construction is a lightweight aluminum, so it's very strong and rust resistant.One unique feature about these running boards, which I personally haven't seen in others, is that there is a weather strip seal that goes between the running board itself and the body of the vehicle. This will help keep out any mud, dirt, or snow from getting trapped in between the running board and the body of your vehicle, which could cause rust over the course of time. These running boards feature a 500 pound capacity, so they offer more than enough weight capacity for anybody to get in and out of your vehicle.The mounting brackets that come with your running boards are specific to your vehicle. They are an easy no-drill application that'll simply bolt to the existing holes already in your vehicle.

Also, they are constructed of a powder-coated carbon steel, so they're extremely rust-resistant and very strong. Now, if you aren't a fan of the polished stainless steel look, that's not a problem. We do offer these with a matte black finish as well.To begin our install, we're going to be working on our rocker panel. We'll be on the driver's side, the passenger side will be the exact same way. Okay, we're underneath the vehicle now, looking at the inside and to the rocker panel.

We're looking at the rear mounting location right now. We'll have two well nuts, one that goes in horizontally, and one that goes in vertically. This is where our installation hardware will go. We'll have a metric bolt with a lock washer on it and a flat washer. All of the mounting hardware is exactly the same, so just keep that in mind.

Take the bracket, and see how it's going to line up with those holes with the shape that it has, and we'll just loosely thread in both of our bolts. This way, we can adjust it later.Okay, perfect. Now, just forward of the rear one, we'll have our middle one. This one is a little bit different. We have a vertical bolt, and then one that comes in at about a 45 degree angle. Now, at the very front, we'll have two well nuts that are vertical. So we'll use this bracket here and we'll get our bolts started. Okay, with all three of our brackets now loosely started, we can set our running board on top of it.We're looking at the bottom of our running board right now. Notice our bolts are pre-installed in these channels. All we'll have to do is slide them near our brackets so they'll line up. Once we have it lined up, we can take our running board and we'll slide it onto the brackets with the bolts going through the brackets. Now, you can see how our brackets have these slots, so it does make it a little easier, especially on the inner one. You can just kind of slide it through the slot like that, and drop your outer one through the hole.Okay, with our bolts poking through our brackets now, place on a flat washer, a lock washer, then we'll thread on a nut. Again, we don't need to have these tight for the time being. Just loose enough so we can maneuver the running board around as necessary. We want to make sure we do this at all locations. Now, using a 13mm socket, we can begin the process of tightening down our hardware. We'll begin with the bolts that secure the brackets to the body of the vehicle first. Now, we're going to go ahead and ensure that our running board is centered on the vehicle. You can either move it side-to-side, you can because of the slots where the bolts go through in the board, and if you need to pull in or out, you can because the brackets are slotted. We have it where we need it right now, so we can tighten our hardware.Now, we'll just make sure everything is nice and snug. With our driver's side now installed, we'll go ahead and repeat the same process for the passenger's side. That'll complete our look at and show you how to install the Aries AeroTread Running Boards with Custom Installation Kit, part number AA2051029, on this 2016 Honda Pilot.

Better than expected, Perfect fit, I wanted something that didn't stick out too far and I think 5 inch is the perfect size, Good packaging, box had a couple of holes from shipping but no damage to product. Only thing as mentioned in other reviews front and rear brackets labeling is reversed but easy to figure out.

Still Looks brand new, really like them

The running boards bolted right up to the vehicle with no problem. They seem to be sturdy and are tucked in as to not protrude past the body.
My wife is short and likes the assistance they give her entering the Pilot.
I enjoy the prompt delivery and service from etrailer.
Thank You for my wife's birthday present for her 2020 Honda Pilot!

These guys were very helpful sent out the right away and the product was fantastic. I would not hesitate to buy from them again.

I had purchased another brand of running board for just about the same money and the overall quality was poor. I returned them and bought from etrailer because the quality of the last item I bought from them was very good. I love the way they look on the Pilot and they are already proving useful for the shorter family members and assisting them getting into the Pilot easier. I was sent the wrong hardware first off , etrailer offered to let me go to my local store and purchase it and they would reimburse me or they would mail me the correct hardware. I chose the second option since I wasn’t in a hurry. Not awesome but they resolved it so no biggie. One other thing that confused me was that the brackets were marked “DSF, DSM & DSR” and additionally “PSF, PSM & PSR”. I assumed this meant “Drive side and Passenger side “Front, Middle and Rear”. But the brackets were stamped incorrectly. The DSRear was actually the front one. It wasn’t hard to figure out which ones matched with the holes in the frame because they are all very different but it’s weird they were stamped wrong. Maybe the letters don’t stand for what I thought they do and I’m open to that possibility.

All that being said they went one easily enough. It took about 90 minutes with and extra pair of hands at times. I really do like the look and they just sort of make a plain looking Pilot look sharp.

Install was easy, especially with instructions plus video. Like the way it turned out. Thanks etrailer!

They fit perfectly Easy to install




by:
2019 Honda Pilot

Product arrived packed well, and is exactly as described. Installation without jacking the car up wasn't difficult once I figured out that the position identification stamped on the brackets was incorrect. For example the bracket stamped DSR wasn't for the drivers side rear but the driver's side front, and visa-versa. Both sides!

Review from a similar AeroTread Running Boards in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Boards look great and appear very sturdy. I installed with no elevation of vehicle in 2 hours 5 minutes which included removing the passenger board for the correct one. It wasn't yet tightened so not too hard. Instructions are ok and provide basic info but I learned more in the comment section here. The brackets are not labeled correctly and face one way on the passenger side and the opposite on the driver side. Don't worry, it all works. The instructions did clarify that forked brackets go to the front and that all others worked middle and rear regardless of stamped markings. Very little room to work under car but I managed. Boards look durable and are very good looking. Mount is sturdy but it would help if boards were marked for Passenger/ driver. I saw the tread pointing toward the front in a picture and so I removed first board and swapped. Screws don't move as freely in the tracks but sufficiently so. All in all, I would buy them again and do it again. Not sure if they are lined up right but an easy fix if they need to move a little forward or back; for now they are centered.


Comments
Looks and functions perfectly! So glad I did this. Saved money too. Never went back and readjusted them. Very happy.

I like the way they look however, the corner on of the running board came in damaged. I did not even wanted to open the other running board.

Review from a similar AeroTread Running Boards in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Decided we needed running boards because I am short. I struggled finding something I liked with a reasonable price. I saw these and was a little unsure but they had good reviews so I thought I'd give them a shot... so worth it. They were literally delivered the very next day. My husband installed them today and said our 12 year old daughter really could have done it. Best part is I can now get into the pilot without any issues.

Review from a similar AeroTread Running Boards in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


These running boards fit my 17 acadia slt. They look great and it's so much easier for my kids and I go get in and out of the back. However, the instructors are completely useless. The brackets are labeled all wrong. Left is right and front is back. Once we figured that out instalation went a lot smoother.

Review from a similar AeroTread Running Boards in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


There is a little confusion over these boards. After a lot of research, I have found these boards/hardware Part# PT93889200 should be marketed to fit 2010-2022 LIMITED, TRD SPORT, and Night Shade ONLY. I own a 2021 SR5 Premium 4Runner, & a 2022 TRD SPORT. Neighbor has a 2021 Limited. The Aris Aero boards are better quality and look/fit better than my OEM Factory SR5 Premium boards.

Review from a similar AeroTread Running Boards in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


I ordered from etrailer because they had all the parts in a package. Easy. I got the 5 in boards (70" for 4Runner) They were just right. Not to big. Install was as easy as the video. One thing. Installing the running boards, watch which way you want the arrows on the board to face. Installed with the arrows pointing to the back. So had to take them off and put them on the other side. No big deal, just didn't look right facing back. Really happy with them. No pictures...electronically challenged on that point.

Wow, great running boards, very sturdy and well made. Follow the video instructions on the etrailer webpage and save a lot of time with installation. I watched the video and had both sides done in less than an hour. All the hardware was included in the package and it was extremely easy to install. These are great running boards that will greatly improve the look and functionality of your vehicle.

Review from a similar AeroTread Running Boards in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


They look awesome. They were delivered ahead of schedule. I made an appointment to have then installed...I started to try myself but decided against it. I'm 70 years young but not young enough to tackle this!!! My ONLY complaint is that because of the wrong labeling it took longer than it should to install them....cost me more money...time=money.


Comments
Wonderfully. They are a life saver for me since I am only 411. I has made getting in and out of the Jeep much easier.

These running boards are very good quality and fairly easy to install. Make my Traverse look much more nice. Oh, and perfect for assisting in entering the vehicle. Well worth the price.

Great. As a running board it provides the access my wife needs to enter the vehicle safely. For me it is the character it adds to the vehicle. I am proud of the look.
