    Review & Install Video

    Hey guys, it's Joe from AmericanTrucks and today we're gonna be taking a closer look at the Barricade Rattler Steel Running Boards in Black, fitting all '15 and newer F-150s. Now, this is gonna be a great option for you if you're looking for an all-steel running board to give you the most amount of stepping area possible at a budget-friendly price tag. So, what do we have going on here with the Rattlers? Well, these are completely made out of 14 gauge steel, no plastic anywhere on these running boards, I'm happy to report. A lot of the times with things like this you do get a plastic step pad here that does sometimes tend to break if you put it under a lot of pressure, not the case with the Rattlers. This thing is all steel through and through and it's definitely going to be able to take some abuse. It's finished in that awesome black powder coating which is not just there to add to the looks, albeit if you were going for the blackout look, this would match perfect. It looks awesome on our lead foot grey '18 F-150. But that powder coating is also the to serve as a layer of protection from the elements. On the actual surface of the board itself, we do have a bunch of drilled holes as well as raised bumps with holes in them, that's going to be great for traction. It's also gonna keep any mud, rain or snow from puddling up on the running board and causing you to slip off. It all comes together to give you a really nice industrial look on the side of your F-150. Now, a great thing about the Rattler specifically is just how much room it gives you to play in your foot on there. We broke out the tape measure and this flat area right here is about six and a half inches deep and that is really good all things considered for running board, that's one of the widest steps out there money can buy. So, that in combination with those traction bumps and drilled holes to make sure you don't slip off the thing make this a great area to plant your foot when you're getting in and out of your truck. I mentioned earlier that this is completely out of steel, that's gonna make it really, really tough for a running board. This thing is easily going to be able to shake off the occasional ding. The shopping cart, the car door, it's gonna keep that from opening into your truck. But however, this is not gonna be full off-road armor. If off-roading is a concern to you, this isn't gonna be side armor. So, I just wanna say that this is gonna be a great running board, it's going to be able to take all the abuse that are running board should. However, if you do plan on doing some rock crawling, this is not gonna be the option for you. In fact, these do rob just a little bit of clearance from the underneath of your F-150. Not too bad, only a couple inches but again, that's going to be on you to choose whether or not these are for you. Also, one thing you wanna check if you do have mudguards on your F-150, you kind of wanna eyeball this and make sure the Rattlers are gonna fit in combination with those. I can't speak to all the mudguards out there. Moving on the pricing and the Rattler is gonna fit all three cab setups for the F-150, regular cab, SuperCab, SuperCrew which is what's you see here. Barricade makes a variant for each one, however, the pricing is gonna vary based on the size of the cab. Regular cab it's gonna start at around 250 and the SuperCrew like you see right here is going to range right around that $400 mark. Now, for what you're getting at that price that is definitely money well spent. This is one of my favorites in the category. I like the industrial looks, I like just how tough this thing is, I like that there's no plastic on here anywhere. So, this is definitely a winner in my book and again, money well spent. If you don't believe me, you don't have to take my word for it though, you can check out the customer reviews. This is currently sitting at about 4.8 out of five stars. There are a bunch of customer pictures on our website for you to check out too. Install for this is going to be really, really easy, no cutting or modifications to get this installed on your truck. Definitely an easy one out of three. If you come with the right sockets, this is gonna take you about an hour or two in the driveway. So, without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need and how it's done. Tools required for this install are going to include an impact, ratchet, 13 and 10-millimeter sockets as well as a 10-millimeter wrench. So, like I said earlier, this install is gonna be really, really easy. The newer F-150s all have studs lining the underside of the body, which are perfect for sidestep mounting brackets. However, we can't just put them up there and bolt them down, our sidestep mounting brackets are steel. The body of our truck is aluminum. So, what we're gonna do first is apply these plastic washers and this is just gonna be a layer of protection against corrosion. These do come in the kit, you want to make sure these make it onto the studs before you mount up your brackets. So, next up, grab a mounting bracket, put it over the studs. Any of the six brackets included in the kit will work, they're not side specific. We're gonna follow that up with some flat washers, and then the 13-millimeter nyloc nuts included in the kit. Before we tighten this down though, I do just wanna touch on the fact that this is slotted, left and right. Just aim for the middle for now, if you need adjustment, you can come back later, loosen these up and slide it. And again 13-millimeter nuts, 13-millimeter socket to tighten this bracket down. Now, for the SuperCrew, there's a middle position that's identical to this and a forward position that's identical to this. We're gonna do the same thing for both of those as well. So, this is the middle right now, we're gonna start it off at the plastic washers. Follow that up with a mounting bracket, flat washers with 13-millimeter nuts. Now, we just have the front left to go. So, now we can grab a running board and for now we're just going to throw it up onto our mounting brackets. You do wanna make sure you grab the right side though. The bags that these are shipped in are color-coded and at least for us, the passenger side was in a green bag, driver side is in a clear bag. Now, you can also tell by the spacing of the squares along the bottom and the instructions do have a picture in there to make sure you have the right one. So, double-check with that, grab the right step, then you can put this up on the mounting brackets. So, next, what we're gonna do is we're gonna grab these bolt plates that do come included in the kit and we're going to put that up into the bracket on the side step just like that. And that is basically how we're gonna connect the two together. So, you lift up on the step, slide that bolt plate over into our mounting bracket and that is good to go. Now, what I'm gonna do just to make sure that this doesn't fall off, is I'm just gonna thread a nut on their finger tight. We're gonna wait to tighten until we get the other two in place. Otherwise, we wouldn't be able to because tightening this not would lock this down. So, moving on to the middle here, we're just gonna work that bolt plate in, then we'll throw a nut on there just to make sure it doesn't slide off. Now, once we get the front position in, we could apply all of the 10-millimeter hardware and then start to align this and tighten it down. This front nut you could probably get to with an impact, however, this one in the back here is gonna require you to go a little bit old school with a 10-millimeter wrench. Now, we're gonna move to the other two brackets, apply the hardware and tighten them down as well. The install is gonna be the same exact thing for the other side. But that's gonna do it for my review and install of the Barricade Rattler Steel Running Boards in Black, fitting all '15 and newer F-150s. Thank you guys for watching.

            Well built, easy to install and look great!

            These arrived in a beat up box thanks to UPS's rough handling and manufactures weak packaging. Thankfully, these are made strong enough to endure. A couple minor dings but all in all a good deal. They look great on my truck and were supper easy to install. Best part? There are NO Plastic parts! Yay!! Will be interesting to see how they hold up to an Alaska winter.

            Replace your stock running boards!

            Easy to install. Uses all three anchor points versus the two on the OEM. So it’s more solid, better construction, and you don’t have to even think about dressing it because it’s just that sexy! The only time suck of the install was figuring out how far to slide it forward and out from the truck.

            Easy to install. Power tools would have made the process go faster but it wasn’t a show stopper. The width of the running has a clear distinction from the factory ones. Love it. Great pick up ( no pun intended) for the price.

            Awesome product! Very sleek and looks great. Not too showy but not too subtle. Easy to install. Only downside is that they are on the heavy side as they are steel not aluminum. Finish is flat black with a slight rough texture, no slipping when wet. I believe the shipping weight was ~70lbs.

            Rugged and stable

            These running boards worked out perfect and couldn't be better for the price. Ford had quoted over $500 to install their basic boards. For under $300 I picked these up and then installed them myself in just about an hour. Hardest part was getting them aligned on each side to match one another. I've had them on for a few months now and they are excellent and plenty of room for me to step on with my size 13 shoes.

            Good step for the money.

            This is a good study step for the money. Mine arrived poorly packaged and one had scratched the other in transit. The powder coat is very thin so expect them to scratch easily. Installation was a breeze. Everything lined up great. They look great on the truck. You can't beat the price even with the thin powder coat.

            This were easy to install, perfect fit. Pay attention the details when choosing the left and right. There is a difference when you get them mounted to make sure they are aligned on both sides. Finished product looks great and looks tough!

            Great Looking and heavy duty

            I purchased the Barricade Rattler Steel Running Boards due to the extra wide width and the adjustability that they are afforded. The Running Boards are solid and heavy, shipping weight is approximately 82 lbs, but it is worth it for the door ding defense as well as the large footprint for large feet. I would definitely purchase these again if I picked up another F150.
