Video Transcript for Aries RidgeStep Running Boards Review

Rob: Hey everybody, Rob here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Aries line of RidgeStep running boards. Now whether you are going to be using it for work, or if you're just using it for an easier way to get in, having that step is going to make it a lot easier to get in and out of your truck. Because a lot of people have noticed that these new trucks are getting taller and taller, and it's definitely a lot harder to get your foot all the way up there without having that step.What I think really is going to set these steps apart, opposed to a lot of other running boards and steps, is the fact that these are a hundred percent made out of steel. There's not a single piece of plastic on there, so we're not going to have to worry about it becoming brittle, fading over time, or cracking. What else is really nice and what I like is that the tread here is actually stamped directly into the board itself.

It's not a separate piece of plastic that we have to bolt on, then we're going to have to worry about replacing down the line. It's one piece and these holes here are going to allow dirt, debris, water, all of that, to run through and drain out so we have a nice, solid, secure place to put our foot and make sure we have traction.On top of that, these are going to be really deep running boards. Now, what I mean by that is, is that we're going to have six and a half inches from the end of the board to the back. We are actually going to be able to use them. A lot of times you may get maybe a three inch running board, but by the time it sits so close to the body, you really can't even use that much of it to get your foot on there, so you're kind of teetering on your toes.

But this, it has plenty of space. Once you get the door open, there's plenty of room to get your whole foot on there, make sure you have a secure grip, and then work your way in or out of the truck.Obviously over time, especially if you're using your truck like a work truck, you got a lot of dirt, mud rocks or whatever, your running boards may get a little dirty. But the nice thing is, is they have that really thick black powder coat finish. And it's a textured finish, so it hides dirt really well and scratches. And it's going to make sure that it protects it and keeps it from rusting as well.Now the Aries RidgeSteps are going to be cab length running boards.

Here we have a standard cab truck, however, even if you have a crew cab truck, the boards are going to run from the front of the cab all the way to the back and they're going to stop there. They're not going to continue onto the wheel well.Now these running boards are extremely heavy duty. They actually have a 500 pound weight capacity. I Really can't think of too much of a time, especially in a standard cab truck, that you would need to have a 500 pound weight capacity on your running boards, but it is really nice to have that extra peace of mind knowing that they're going to have extra stability for you and that they're going to last a really long time.The installation for our boards is a very straightforward process. There's no drilling involved at all, and it's going to come with all the necessary hardware to get it installed.

The nice thing about the Aries mounting brackets is that if you later on down the road decide you want to switch out your boards, you can actually switch out the boards without having to pick up the brackets. You can find all those fits here at Etrailer.com.Not only are the boards going to serve a functional purpose of us getting in and out of the truck easier, but they're also going to allow us to make our truck look the way we want and make it our own. These have a really rugged look. So if you have a rugged truck and you want to add some of that off-road look to them, I think these are a great choice. With all that being said, again, I'm Rob here at etrailer.com, and that'll finish up your look at the Aries RidgeStep line of running boards..

Review from a similar RidgeStep in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Pretty disappointed in the shipment. I reached out to etrailer with pics and asked for help but not a word back. Clearly I got a return or something. The product looks rugged but it’s so scratched up that I’m sure it’ll rust super quickly. I would have expected better.

Thank you for the review and for bringing this to our attention. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.

Review from a similar RidgeStep in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


I ordered the Aries Ridge Step Running Boards on Wednesday from the etrailer website. They were delivered on Friday afternoon and it took me about an hour to install them. Instructions were easy to follow and the accompanying pictures were actually relevant to installation. They look great on my Silverado and my wife can get into the truck much easier.


Comments
Running boards are working great. My wife really appreciates the extra step.

Review from a similar RidgeStep in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Thank you very much for reaching out to us. The running boards are awesome! They were easy to install, my father in law helped me put them on. They look great. I put them on my wife's truck, she loves them, "but" there's always that right, lol. Her only complaint is the bolts, she wished they were black also, but yes she does love them and they look great.

Review from a similar RidgeStep in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


the instructions were not accurate for this vehicle. The driver side install very difficult and time-consuming. The product itself is well built and seems durable...time will tell.


Comments
they do not fit well on the transit 350. On the sliding door side, you have to step down sideways because they are too short. in fact, I would say they are dangerous. i am looking for ways to extended them. Also, the mounting process sucked on the drivers side and I had to fabricate a better mounting system. it was a real pain. you can check them only on Facebook RV conversion Dont worry I did not bad mouth anyone.

Steps ate awesome. Only issue I had was that one of the front passenger side mounting bracket was the wrong one. Took me 45 min to install driver side brackets and step, but 2hr and 15min for the passenger side.

  • Best Running Board Options For A 2022 Ford F-350
    After a bunch of research I have some options for you and of course my recommendation. My uncle is in the same situation as you so I totally understand the importance of getting the right step. If you're really wanting a wheel to wheel running board you have two options. Either the Westin HDX # 56-5340252 or the Westin PRO TRAXX # 21-534655. They both are going to be as sturdy, but the HDX does have superior grip. That being said, if you wanted a true wheel to wheel running board, the HDX...
