Video Transcript for Aries RidgeStep Running Boards Review

Hello neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer and today we're taking a look at the Aries RidgeStep line of running boards for your truck, van, or SUV. Now, when choosing which one's right for you, you wanna make sure to use our fit guide to get the proper fit for your vehicle. Now, these running boards are gonna be a bunch of different varieties that custom fit to your vehicle. And the reason being is it's gonna match the length as well as the custom brackets, to be able to bolt up nice and easily to your application. Now, the entire line of RidgeSteps are gonna share similar capabilities and also similar specs, meaning that they're gonna be 6 1/2 inches wide. So it's gonna give you ample room to step on here to get into the vehicle.

They're also gonna have these nice raised ridges here for that traction and also be able to drain with these holes here. That way there's not any mud or water built up on here when you step on there. Now you're also gonna have this nice wrinkle black powder coat finish, which looks really nice. And also it's gonna prevent scratches from really showing as much because it's gonna hide it. Sometimes with that gloss finish on some of the other powder coat finishes a little nick will really show up.

This one actually gives you added texture and it's gonna hide that a little bit better. Now these are steel construction so they're very heavy duty. In fact, they feel super secure. Other running boards that I've dealt with before don't exactly have the best feel to 'em. These ones, as I step on it, I'm jumping up and down and the whole truck is moving along with it, but I don't feel any flex coming from the running board itself.

So it gives you a sense of security as you step on here to hop in your vehicle. Now, the raised steps also give you extreme traction. So I'm really scraping my foot along here and it's holding onto my shoe, which is really nice for not only just daily use but also during inclement weather when you may have snow, mud, rain on your shoes it's not gonna make a difference because these are really going to bite into your shoe giving you solid traction as you hop up. Now, the textured black powder coat finish serves multiple purposes. And the first one right out the gate is I think it looks great.

You also get a little bit of added traction here just as it creates a rough surface here for your shoe to bite onto, but also it's gonna serve as protector at long term from the weather. So if you're in a snowy conditions and they salt the roads, even though this sees a lot of road grime it's not gonna break down with rust and corrosion because it's protected with that powder coat finish. Now being custom fit means it's going to cater to your vehicle. So as we have a four-door truck here, you can see that the rear passengers are gonna easily be able to use the step to hop in as well as the front. But if you pick these up for even the transit van or something along those lines, it's gonna cover any of the openings. So even your sliding doors, it's gonna match that up. So that's the point of being custom fit is it's gonna be perfectly catered to whatever vehicle you may have. Now on our Sierra here today, I can see why the customer might have added these on. Trucks are slowly becoming more family vehicles. As you can use it as a truck, but having four doors you can actually load the whole family up. Well, my two little kids can't really hop up in the back because the factory ground clearance on this is actually pretty good, which is great for a truck and for adults. But for kids to hop up here, it kind of can be a test. So this step here's gonna allow them to be able to get in the truck nice and easy. And it's actually rated for 500 pounds, so even if there's another version of me standing on the front, it's still gonna be within the weight spec. Now when you do choose your custom fit kit for your vehicle it's gonna come with both sides and they may be different sizes depending on the vehicle, like a van, you're gonna have that long slider but you do have both sides that come with the kit. Now, something else that I really like is the fact the installation's extremely easy. This one actually bolted into some factory weld nuts and it's really easy to do. And it's secure because it's using factory mounts. Another great part is it does have some adjustability. You're able to slide these forward or back, in and out, so you can really cater to exactly where you want it and how you want it to look on your vehicle. And that was a look at the Aries RidgeStep line of running boards for your truck, van, or SUV..

I highly recommend etrailer! Customer service is top notch and their products are very good also.

2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500





Really happy with these steps. They are very easy to mount even for someone like me who always ends up working on things after the sun goes down. They have very good grip in any weather conditions I’ve been in but are still usable in bare feet as well. My only complaint is there is no adjustment to the height and on my particular truck there is a larger gap between the kick plate and cab than I would have in an ideal world. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a solid side step that has a different look than the normal tube style on most trucks.


These worked out great on my sprinter van. Way cheaper then the other van sites, and don’t hang down as for more clearance/less damage.


Installation went smoothly with process pretty straight forward. Looks good and feels sturdy. Time will tell on how well they hold up to Colorado weather.


About 45 min install on 2023 Ram 2500. Hardware for other models is included so once it’s separated, it’s not too mucb. My truck didn’t have nut plates but didn’t need drilling. Needed 3 wrench sizes though. Meh.


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.


Nervous bRs are still on the truck and work as they should with the exception of the strength. I notice after pitting them in that there was alot of flex or movement when stepping on them. (I am 200lbs.) Must of my employees are 250 to 280, and we they step on them the flex was alot. We have since welded to the brackets to help with this problem.

So, I'd say yes they work, but are a cheap version and should not be used in a work world as they will not hold up.


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.


Easy to install.
Really like the wide
width and grip feature.
Very happy with product.


Great cost effective option for running boards


Order came quicker than I thought and product was exactly what I was looking for. I could not find the "C- shaped Track mounting bracket or mounting brackets shown in Steps 7A and 7B of the instructions- I went through the box of materials several times. It appears tht maybe you changed the mounting system since there nots for the M8 bolts- i installed running boards by placing the bolts to the outside of the slots.


Great running boards, Installed on a CMC 3500 cab and chassis. Looks great and function really good. It doesn't come with mounting brackets so make sure to get them as well.


Thanks again etrailer for not providing the brackets with the steps as listed. NO CUSTOM INSTALL KIT COMES WITH THESE STEPS. JUST STEPS!!!


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.


Installed these on my Sprinter. Easy to install and they look and work great.


It was a very simple process!


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.


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.


Really rugged & look amazing


I can’t believe that I got it that fast. I just got them today I have not put them on but they look like they’re better than what I expected. Can’t thank you enough for all your help. These will be put on a van at the food pantry uses. We are all older and have a hard time getting in the van. These steps will make it a lot easier on all of us. Thank you again for all your help. I will send photos once they are installed on the van.
