RealTruck offers the widest selection of nerf bars and running boards for your truck, SUV, or Jeep. From rugged, tubular-style steps to factory-style running boards, we carry it all!

Why Install a Set of Nerf Bars or Running Boards on Your Ride? 

Even at factory ride heights, some pickups can be a bear to climb in and out of. Once you start adding lift kits and oversized tires, you may notice that what was once a difficult task is now nearly impossible; if not for you, then for your passengers!

Nerf bars and running boards combat the tall ride height of a pickup, Jeep, or SUV by providing an auxiliary step, inches closer to the ground than your vehicle’s rocker panels. 

Nerf Bars 

Nerf bars are typically tubular in design, though aesthetics may vary from rock sliders with welded-on hoops, to long, wide mono-steps with composite step pads. 

If you’re looking for a narrower, rounder step, nerf bars are worth your attention. Usually made of steel, nerf bars are 3”-5” in diameter and are available in wheel to wheel and cab-length options. Some nerf bar designs incorporate a hoop step, which drops down from the main bar to provide a lower step than most boards and bars.

Running Boards

Running boards are typically wide and flat, placing a greater emphasis on functionality. Designs can vary from power retracting steps which automatically drop into position when a door is opened, to solid rectangular steps, affixed to the frame or rocker panels.  

Running boards for trucks are usually 4”-7” wide with a flat step that runs the length of the cab. Wheel to wheel running boards are also available for truck owners who need a step at the bed. Running boards are made of durable materials such as steel, aluminum, and composite.
