Video Transcript for Aries AeroTread Running Boards Installation - 2018 Toyota 4Runner

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Toyota 4-Runner, you're going to be taking a look at and I'm going to show you how to install the Aries AeroTread Running Boards.This is what our running boards look like when they're installed. You're going to get two running boards. They're going to be 70 inches long and give you a five inch wide step. The inside frame is going to be made out of a rust-proof aluminum and the outside's going to be made out of a carbine black stainless steel so it's going to resist any rust or corrosion.The step pad itself is going to be made out of a durable hardened non-skid plastic. It's going to have a tread like pattern to give you adequate traction when getting in and out of the vehicle. We're going to have rounded edges to maintain that streamline look and have a 500 pound max weight capacity.First thing we want to do is, you want to get your ...

Back your vehicle, back or the front, either one, up off the ground just a little bit. It's going to make it a little bit easier to work under there. If you don't have ramps, it's not necessary but it will make it a little easier. If you don't have ramps, you want to pick some up, you can find some on our website.Once you get your vehicle up on the ramps, you want to make sure you set your emergency brake and then chock your front wheels. Next thing we're going to do, we're going to start on the passenger side.

You're going to have four brackets that look like this. You're going to have two brackets that look like this. The two brackets that are like this, are for the front of the vehicle on the driver and passenger side. The four brackets that look like this, are going to be for the center in the back on both sides of the vehicle. What we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and lay these where they're going to be installed.

Lay them like this underneath there. Then what you need to do is we're going to get underneath the vehicle. You want to check to see if you have factory hardware. If you don't have factory hardware on the vehicle, your kit's going to come with some hardware. That's what you're going to use.If your vehicle has factory hardware, you're just going to remove the hardware, put your bracket in place, and reinstall that hardware.

This is the hardware I was talking about. Again, you're going to have two here in the back, two in the center, and two in the front. We'll take a 12 millimeter socket, we'll go ahead and remove those. We'll take our bracket and with two small holes, the enclosed holes here, and we're going to go up underneath with our bracket like that.Now we can reinstall our hardware. We're not going to fully tighten this down right now. Now we're going to install our center one, the same way. We'll take inaudible 00:02:42 front bracket and you want to slide them underneath those brackets there. We've already removed the hardware. Reinsert your hardware if you have existing hardware there. If not, this is where you would put in the hardware that comes with your kit.Now we want to take our running board. You're going to flip it over upside down. You're going to have six bolts with nuts, washers and block washers on it. We're going to remove the nuts, block washers, and flat washers. We're going to have two, three pins 00:03:27. Two for the center. What we want is we want this rubber section up against the vehicle. There we're going to set it into place like this. What we're going to do is get back under there, inaudible 00:03:46 our hardware and get it set into our brackets. What we'll do is we'll take it and we'll push it like that. Then we'll put our hardware back on. Now we can reinstall our hardware, flat washer first and then the block washer, and then the nut.You can see there's plenty of room here on these bolts so you may not need to take these all the way off. The instructions tell you to take them all the way off but you can see we have plenty of room. If you can get them on without having to take off the nut, block washer, flat washer, by all means, try it that way. You're just going to repeat this for the other two brackets. Before we tighten anything up, what we're going to do is we want to center our ends between our wheel wells, or center the board between our wheel wells. You take a guesstimate here, distance from this edge to the edge of our wheel well there. We'll do it again back here. Once you have it adjusted where you want, it'll go back in. Then we're going to tighten up the hardware and we're going to start with the hardware that's holding the bracket to the vehicle. Now I'm going to push these all the way back in. We'll go ahead and tighten up this hardware that's holding our running board down to our brackets.Then we'll repeat that for all remaining brackets and inaudible 00:05:32. Once you're done on this side, you're going to repeat the same process on the driver's side. That'll do it for a look at and installation on the Aries AeroTread Running Boards in black on our 2018 Toyota 4-Runner.

We love the running boards. We put them on the day we got them and have enjoyed every bit. I have the new Toyota 4Runner with the night shade edition so everything is blacked out and the boards just flow with that. I’m pregnant and know that these will be a big help in the later part and with kids 586289

Awesome. It was east to install the running board to my 2020 4runner limited Toyota. Highly recommended this product from the store etrailer. Using only 1/2 inch rachet to install. My 4runner now is more looking good. Save money for installation. DYI. 895172

The running boards arrived in good shape and everything fit together, nicely. Your installation video was a big help. I put blue lock-title on all of the bolts just to be a little "extra safe". 707242

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. 692678

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.

Finally got the correct size running boards. They fit perfect. Return policy needs some work. Other on-line retailers offer free returns and refund your money quickly. You guys take much too long to refund money and charge to return items. Not sure why, but maybe consider this and you might have more commerce coming to you. Just my thoughts. 613645

Review from a similar AeroTread in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Initially, I ordered this running board through {another website} to get 5% off. It was in stock when I ordered on June 1st, showing estimated shipping between June 3-5. Well, it has not shipped. When I contacted them on 7th, it was back ordered to ship on June 14th. I cancelled the order and ordered through etrailer.com on 10th, received it today (13th) and installed in my garage. Nice! Installation needs only set of sockets and a wrench. All parts fit well on 2019 traverse 3LT awd. Most difficult step was installing middle bracket which involved fishing of M6 bolt with square ring. The inlet hole on frame was so tight, it was a challenge to send both bolt and ring together through the hole. I read someone mentioned there was no hole for middle bracket so he had to drill a hole, but it is not true. He might have installed it at wrong spot. The hole is there for fishing. It took 5min for me to figure out and I needed some luck not to drop the bolt inside of frame during fishing. Instruction was not clear at this step and photo showed same copy as the first bracket installation. May need some details including where to and from Fishing M6 bolt. Fishing for rear bracket was easy. Total installation took 1.5hr without raising the car. I chose chrome stainless over black powder coat because my 20 inch wheel was rough silver chrome finish. Chrome color matches well to wheel color and because it is bright, my kids won't miss it in dark. If I blacked out my car, I might have chosen black board though. It is definitely better than oem board for both look and function. Good purchase! 657745


Comments
It still looks good at 1yr after installation. No rust nor loose parts. It also keeps side panels clean in rainy days functioning as splash guard.

Great quality and fit on my 2019 Chevy Traverse for the price. Would be better if the steps had rubberized grip for better traction. These are 5”, but I think 6” would have been better for my vehicle. Shout out to etrailer for shipping these all the way from east coast to California in 2 days with only standard shipping! Original eta was supposed to be 7-10 days or so. 658642

Review from a similar AeroTread in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


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. 722395

These running boards look and function great on my 2018 Traverse LT. Installation was not complicated because the instructions were clear with very helpful photos. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting runnng boards and am saving my pennies to get a set for my 2011 Silverado . 641537

These were easy to install and they look great. Just got the 2019 Pilot and found out the kids would have an easier time with some running boards. Instructions were straightforward enough, but I watched the installation example video anyway. Just as easy as it looks. The quality and construction seems to be very good. Hoping they last the life of the vehicle. Kids, and wife, like the ease of getting in and out of the Pilot now. 614044

Review from a similar AeroTread in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Again, etrailer.com knocks it out of the park! Other than one pain in the butt issue, this was perfect. The running boards are much higher quality than I thought they would be, solidly built and look awesome on my 2019 Honda Pilot. Installation was easy - after I watched the installation video. However, the brackets marked "F", which I assumed meant "Front" like over reviewers, was actually the rear and the brackets marked "R" were actually the front. Brackets marked "M" were for the middle. Fortunately, I figured this was the case after reading other reviews. But, with my vehicle, it was really obvious when I looked at the mounting holes. The entire installation took about 40 minutes (plus an hour and a half to go to Home Depot, but I'll get to that). The running boards look awesome on my vehicle! They look factory installed. I like that they have a thick rubber strip that seals them again the vehicle, preventing rain, snow, ice from getting in between the running boards and the side of the vehicle. This is the first time I've ever had something go wrong with a product I ordered from etrailer, though. One of the mounting bolts was defective -- see the picture I posted. This is absolutely not etrailer's fault and is on the manufacturer, but it was a major hassle for me as I didn't notice until I had the driver's side running board installed and had one of the brackets already installed on the passenger side. It is a fairly standard sized metric bolt and I spent $0.92 at Home Depot for a replacement -- but, it was still a major hassle. If it weren't for that, I'd rate this 5 stars. Suggestions -- use a round wire brush to clean out the weld nuts before attaching the brackets. A couple of mine were full of dirt, which I expected and I cleaned them out first. Second, check the bolts!! My defective bolt was probably a fluke, but checking all the parts would be a good idea anyway. Shipping was very quick, extremely well packaged as usual. Love etrailer!! 822465

Nice product for the price . Assembly was very easy . Everything fit as it should. Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars , is the hardware is a little bit on the lighter side . Had one T-Bolt head came of just snugging it up with a 3/8” hand ratchet . Of course not a faster ER Supply in three counties had any . Resolution I made my own and finished installing. Installation instructions state there are spare bolt nut and washer, not in this set . I would suggest a better grade of bolts and include at least one spare T-Bolt 791436
