The PowerBoard is an automatic running board that hides underneath your truck when doors are closed and extends to meet your foot when the door opens. PowerBoards are full length, and work with all doors; front and rear, driver and passenger. The Bestop PowerBoard has a 3 year/36,000 mile limited warranty. The PowerBoard step descends up to 6 inches, which provides a comfortable stepping height. All PowerBoards include bright LED lights, automatically lighting the PowerBoard when it's needed.
These are some great steps! They move quietly and quickly. The steps move to their full down position before you can finish opening the door. The light kit is bright, and makes night time entry more convient.
I love the power step, it cant be seen until the door is opened, the hight is perfect, and provides a stable platform. Snow wont accumulate on the step, and it greatly improves ground clearance.
It is a good product but the instructions on how to hook up were poorly written.
These steps offer things no other competitors do. Tucks away and folds down lower for best entry for big trucks without obstruction while driving. The installation instructions I felt could be better if they did not include so many vehicles together. It was easy to get confused which vehicle they were talking about. The installation was easy if understood and followed step by step.

Q: How do these work without doors, can you wire them to a toggle on/off switch? Answer this question
A: Yes, you would have to wire a toggle switch to make the boards work… without doors there is no way to trigger the board to open and close, this process would have to be done manually.

Q: Can these be used with the doors off? Answer this question
A: Per Bestop: The Powerboards rely on vehicle signals to alert as to when to deploy or retract the Powerboards. When the doors are removed from a JK Wrangler, the Powerboards won’t receive this signal. As such, they will retract after 5 minutes and stay retracted until the doors are reinstalled and opened. Our Powerboard NX versions, however, rely on a wireless module to alert the system to deploy. These wireless sensors can be applied to some half doors. There is still no way to trip the Powerboard with no doors, though.
