Side Steps & Running Boards for Trucks & Jeeps

4 Wheel Parts carries quality side steps and running boards. Choose from nerf bars, electric steps and more for your truck, Jeep, or SUV. Locking the hubs and driving into the next great off-road adventure often starts by reaching for the grab handle and hauling yourself into your rig. While this can be satisfying, it can also make getting into and out of the truck difficult when you're on uneven or rocky terrain. Installing truck running boards or jeep nerf bars can improve accessibility when entry angles are awkward. However, they are not just for off-road convenience. For pavement-worthy light-duty trucks and SUVs, steps can help small children and those with mobility issues enter and exit the vehicle easier.

Running Boards vs. Nerf Bars
Running boards and side steps can both assist in increasing functionality and improving accessibility. Although the terms are often used interchangeably, and they serve a similar purpose, they are designed differently and may have different advantages. Jeep running boards snug against the bottom edge of the truck frame and a step pad covers the entire length, allowing easier access to the truck bed and convenience for vehicle entry and exit. The textured pads for side steps are located just below each entry point, regardless of whether the nerf bar runs the entire length of the truck or if they are short loops centered below the door.

Jeep running boards assist passengers in getting in and out, but they serve another purpose as well. They protect the truck from debris kicked up by the tires. From nails that may stray from construction sites to rocks and branches on primitive trails, running boards can prevent these obstacles from damaging doors and side panels.  The design of nerf bars can be less conventional than running boards, which can upgrade and personalize your rig's exterior. 

We offer superior service and the lowest prices on high-quality parts and accessories. Order online or stop into one our nationwide 4 Wheel Parts stores to select the running boards or side steps that are right for you.
