Grip Step™ running boards on the job
Engineered for work
Grip Steps™ are ideal running boards for trucks, cargo vans and fleet vehicles. From the farm, to the construction site, to the delivery route, they offer safety and durability.
Easy, custom fit
All Grip Step™ running boards are made for vehicle-specific installation. This means a custom fit for each truck or work van without the headache of difficult vehicle modifications.
Maximum safety and comfort on the job
Grip Step™ running boards are ideal for cargo vans, fleet trucks and other hardworking vehicles because of their unique, expanded metal treads. The treads cover the entire 7" wide surface of the running board and lock onto your boots for a safe, comfortable step.
The treads are also highly wear-resistant and have an open design. This allows dirt and debris to pass through, keeping the side steps and the interior of your vehicle clean and professional.

Strong, lightweight and rust-free
Grip Step™ running boards perfectly balance fuel-efficiency and strength with their extruded aluminum construction. The 5052 aluminum alloy provides a solid, rigid step while keeping excessive weight off your pickup truck or work van.
These aluminum running boards are also naturally rust-resistant, maintaining durable strength and a professional finish on your vehicle.
For a more aggressive, offroad-style alternative, check out our SlimGrip™ 5" running boards. These sleek, rugged truck side steps feature the same expanded metal treads and powder-coated aluminum construction, only with a more narrowed profile and angular end caps.
Professional-grade black finish
To maximize corrosion resistance to a professional level, Grip Step™ running boards are finished with a textured black powder coat. This highly durable outer barrier protects the running boards from rain, road salt and rust, and resists chipping and scratching from road debris.
These black running boards give your work truck or cargo van a sharp accent. They are finished off with tough black plastic end caps, eliminating any sharp corners for added safety.
Customized for trucks and vans
For seamless integration and a custom fit without the hassle, all Grip Step™ running boards are made for vehicle-specific installation. The board lengths and configuration of the brackets are customized for each unique truck, van or SUV application.
The brackets used to mount Grip Step™ running boards are constructed from high-strength steel for a solid step, and they have a powder coat finish to resist corrosion. Stainless steel fasteners are also used for long-lasting reliability.
Grip Step™ running boards provide easier access to the truck bed with our wheel-to-wheel option. Wheel-to-wheel steps are extra-long to extend beyond the truck cab and offer a solid step up when reaching into the truck bed.
Grip Step™ wheel-to-wheel running boards are ideal for accessing a 5th wheel hitch, gooseneck hitch, headache rack, ladder rack, truck tool box or simply cargo in the truck bed.
