Video Transcript for Aries ActionTrac Motorized Running Boards Review

Hey everybody, how's it going Today, we're gonna be going over and showing you how to install the Aries ActionTrac motorized running boards. So these are what our running boards are gonna look like installed when we have the mechanism retracted. So, our first glance what you're gonna see we have a nice durable powder-coated finish that's really gonna help these running boards do a great job of resisting rust and corrosion. Now, a lot of running boards because of where they're located, underneath the vehicle here, they're gonna be subjected to a lot of road conditions, a lot of bad weather. So if you're in a state that uses salt, these things can really get eaten up pretty dang quick from that salt. However, we really shouldn't have any issues here with the ActionTrac 'cause again we have this nice durable, powder coated finish that is throughout the running boards as well as the brackets.

So really no part of our running boards here, the installation kit, the boards, should really have any issues with rust or corrosion. So the ActionTrac running boards they're not the only motorized running boards on the market. There's another pretty common set. However, I really think the ActionTrac beats these guys out because number one, the main thing here, is that the motor for the ActionTrac is actually gonna be encased here. Therefore, it's not gonna be subjected to the elements that we're gonna see with an item mounted on the underside of our vehicle here.

So therefore the longevity, the reliability of the ActionTrac here is gonna far surpass the competition. So what do motorized running boards do Well, it's kinda obvious but essentially when we open our doors, we're gonna have an additional step here. So what this additional step does is, it's gonna provide us even more aid getting in and out of our truck here. Because it's gonna be sitting much lower to the ground, we don't have to step up as much to get to that first step to help us get into our truck. So it's no secret nowadays with trucks, they keep making them taller and taller meaning they're gonna sit higher up and up.

So it's gonna be more difficult to get into our truck. But with this lower step here, it's definitely gonna help us a lot more. Even more so than just a normal set of nerf bars or running boards. So here you can see it a little bit better how much we really have here before we have to get to that first step. It's not much at all.

We really don't have to jump up at all as opposed to up here, would definitely be a little bit more of a step. So it's gonna make it a heck of a lot easier to get in and out of your truck. Maybe your wife isn't as tall, you have some elderly family members that are getting in and out and they need a little bit more assistance, it's gonna be super easy for them to get in and out of your truck. So we obviously can't be driving down the road with that step as low as it is. But since they're automatic, they're gonna retract back up into the body there. We're not gonna have to worry about any decreased ground clearance issues. So if we take a closer look at the surface of our running boards here, you can see we have sort of these grooves and channels. And what this is gonna do is, it's really gonna help us get a pretty good bite of our shoes on these boards here. We're not gonna have to worry about slippage. So normally on a dry day is probably not as big of an issue as it would if it's winter time, you have salt, snow even mud or water if it's raining. These surfaces can tend to get a little bit slick because we have all this debris piling up on top of the board. These channels here are gonna help separate that debris and give you some good bite with your shoes here so you don't have to worry about slipping. So convenient is a pretty big factor with our running boards here. Everything is gonna be automatic, the open and close with our front and rear doors on either side there. So we don't have to worry about hitting a switch or a button each time. Everything is automatic. But there will be some times where you may not necessarily want the running boards to attract each time you're getting in and out of your truck. And we can't actually cut off the system there so we can open the doors, we don't have to worry about the running boards. Maybe we we're parked at a campground, we're just getting in and out of our truck to grab some things, we don't necessarily need to use our running boards. We just go ahead and hit that kill switch. That'll turn off the motor. We don't have to worry about them activating each time we open our door. And then you can just simply turn it back on when you need it. So another nice feature I liked about these running boards, we actually have a pretty bright built-in led light. We have one on each side and it's gonna assist us when we're getting in and out of our truck at night. So we can make sure we don't miss a step and hurt ourselves. So the ActionTrac running boards they are made of aluminum so we're really not gonna have any issue at all with rust or corrosion. They're also gonna be a little bit lighter when we're getting them on and off the vehicle. They come with a lifetime warranty and they are made here in the USA. Now in regards to installation, it's actually not as bad as it may seem. Physically mounting the running boards on this vehicle is probably the easiest part. It's definitely not hard at all, there's no drilling or modifications required. I would say the most time consuming part of the install not necessarily difficult, it's just running the wires to and from each of the door switches to the running boards and then to the battery. It's definitely something you guys can do at home. Just make sure you give yourself a little bit of time and that's gonna do it today for our look and installation of the Aries ActionTrac motorized running boards..

I finally got them installed and they are wonderful. My wife has arthritic knees and it was very difficult for her to get in the Jeep. With these Motorized Running Boards she can now get in effortlessly.

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


After spending close to $xxxx, the first box was never received. Contacting etrailer was frustrating in that a true status of the second box could not be obtained until UPS sent a delivery notice. This resulted in having to change an installation appointment that took 4 weeks to get. Second, this shipment weighted close to 50 pounds and etrailer shipped the box, that is 6.5 feet long, that was held together by the equivalent of SCOTCH TAPE. The contents were spilling out of the box when the driver delivered the box. Needless to say etrailer really needs to get your staff together and just think about how your clients merchandise is handled once it’s in the hands of UPS


Comments
I apologize about the shipping trouble. Customer Service is working to get everything straightened out for you.

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


These steps work very well. The installation of the bars are one of the most easiest I have seen. I have installed other brands and they took much longer. All the holes lined up as expected. The wiring is not for the faint at heart. We had to take the back seat out of the Colorado and peel back the carpet to run the wiring. The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. After owning these for a year they are still working like the day we put them on. We have had a few issues with the end caps of the walk boards being faded by the sun and turning white. The driver side light began blinking when the door was opened. I contacted the company and they sent me new end caps, stated that they had a bad batch sent to them that were not UV free and they sent a new light. I replaced the light and still have the problem. But the company appears to work well on warranty items. Only reason I did not give the the full 5 stars is due to the end caps fading and the light began blinking. Other wise I would purchase these again. They are not cheap by any means but are of a good quality.


Comments
After owning these steps for a year they still work as they should. I still have a problem with the drivers step LED not lighting up, but other than that they work great. They have been in mud, snow, water and most everything the elements could throw at them. One thing to note is that when a lot of grime builds up on them they may be slow to go down or even stop working. I found that spraying a good non stick lubricant on the moving parts get them working again. You cannot blame the steps for that, its just mother nature throwing everything at it and I consider it part of maintenance when I do oil changes. Though more expensive than other steps they are worth the purchase to help gain access to your vehicle.

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


I ordered from Stephen and he was easy to work with and took really good care of me. He got the price matched from another company. The order arrived quickly AND ON TIME. After install I am very happy with these. They work great and make it way easier for me to get in and out of my vehicle. I would highly recommend etrailer. This is my second time ordering from them and I am extremely happy.

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


I am very happy with the steps with one exception I'll mention later. The Aries fore and aft action was perfect for our 2020 Ram 3500 chassis cab. The steps look great and were easy to install with running wires and locating the processor taking the most time. My only complaint regards the led step lights. Both began flickering then failed completely, the driver side after about six months and the passenger side in the last several weeks.


Comments
Please check to see that the LED connector is plugged in and secure. Inspect the LED and wiring harness for damage. To test LED functionality, apply 12 volts directly to the LED. If the LED will not turn on when directly connected, it will need to be replaced. The manufacturer handles warranties directly, so I will email you their contact information.

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


Pretty easy self install. Other than an occasional squeak when they deploy or retract (probably from dust or dirt) they are perfect. After having these installed on my 2018 Jeep JL for a year I can't imagine why Jeep doesn't offer these as a dealer installed option. They're fantastic. My wife especially likes them.

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


So far so good. It took me all day to install the boards, but, I approached it methodically. I wasted an hour trying to thread the main power lead through the firewall: then realized I could just grab a hot lead in the fuse panel next to the drivers door....a rookie mistake I will not make again. They work well and my wife loves the ability to actually get into and out of the 2500 Silverado...me too! Here to hoping they work for several years.

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


Aries Automotive ActionTrac Nerf Bars - Running Board after owning it for a year. Great product. Still essentially functioning as expected. I would recommend them to anyone. There are 2 issues to address however. 1- The lights that come with them did not last 6 months. I ended up ordering some high quality lights and swapping them out once they decomposed and failed. 2- The endcaps will not stay in place without modification. I used resin on mine to keep them in place. I still love them. They look an operate great. The fixes are easy.

We just received our running boards (motorized) today Just waiting on the mounting brackets and wiring harness, so we can put it all together and use them. The customer service in Etrailer is without a doubt the most helpful people we’ve ever felt with. I mean they go out of their way to help you. Not pushy, not trying to sell you something you don’t need or want. They listen to you , and reassure you of your purchase. Thank you to customer service Miriam

The powered steps are awesome, as they provide the needed assistance to get in and out of my lifted Jeep. In addition, it’s aggressive styling and function provide the WOW factor I was hoping to accomplish.

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


Have had these bars for almost a year now. They work GREAT. I was concerned that maybe they might freeze in winter but i have had no problem whatsoever. Self-installation was long but not especially difficult. I wish they would have included grade-8 bolts for installation; I had to use the ones from my factory bars.

Great product! Harness is a little short on the line going to the brain. Units mount easily , would be more secure if the slots on the brackest were holes instead of slots. Works great ... Love to show it off!!! I keep getting comments and compliments.
