    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Adam here with americantrucks.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the Barricade Rattler Steel Running Board, available for all 2015 and newer F-150s. The Barricade Rattler steel running board will be available for any 2015 or newer F-150 owner who might be, obviously, looking to pick up a set of side steps, or running boards in this case, in order to help them get in and out of their truck safely, especially if it's a lifted setup. Now, this particular running board option from Barricade does offer a very rugged, industrial appearance, as far as aggression goes, to replace the boring factory side steps if your truck came with them from the factory. Now, on top of that, even though this does carry extremely high-quality and durable, steel-like materials, which we'll detail later on, it will carry a more budget-friendly price tag. As far as the installation goes, don't expect any drilling or anything like that, no modifications necessary. It will bolt directly up. Now, with that said, it will get a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, and I'll take you through that at the end of the video.Obviously, if you're in the market for something to help you get in and out of your truck safely, even if it's lifted, there are tons of different options out there. You'll see there are side steps, nerf bars, and, of course, running boards much like this one. All three of those categories fall under the same functionality but have a different appearance and, of course, different materials and price tag, all of which will come into play when deciding which one is for you. Just to give you a brief overview of the differences between a side step, nerf bar, and a running board, a running board like the one you see here would typically offer a stepping pad throughout the entire bar, running the entire length of your cab while also be completely attached to the body of your F-150. Now, a side step and nerf bar will actually gap out from the body, leaving a negative space, and would only offer that slip-resistant pad underneath the door. Obviously, the side step and nerf bar portion would be a lot different than the factory option, but if you're looking for more of a safe stepping portion, the running board is definitely a safer bet. If you're looking for a bigger change in appearance, a side step and nerf bar might be the direction you wanna go. Now, this particular design offers a very durable material here, with raised bumps which actually give you that traction across the entire board. Now, this one is gonna be a lot different than some of the other options as far as running boards go simply because of this raised bump and drilled-hole design. Obviously, that lets some kind of elements, the snow, the rain, the wetness, go through the board without staying on top and gathering in a puddle, while the raised bumps get a lot more traction to your boot while hopping in and out of the front and rear of your cab. As far as materials and construction goes, this is manufactured out of an extremely tough, heavy-duty steel which is great for durability, exactly what you'd want in a side step or running board. Now, in addition to that, it does offer a 6-and-a-half-inch stepping area for the width which is actually a little bit bigger than most of the different options out in the aftermarket world. Huge bonus for the guys looking for a maximum amount of stepping area. To finish it off, it was completed in a black, powder-coated finish to help with corrosion resistance and just make it that much more durable, extending the lifetime.Now, although side steps, running boards, and nerf bars are typically described and advertised as added protection for the sides of your truck, I wanna stress that if you're doing some extreme off-roading, constantly tackling those big trail hazards, this definitely won't be the side armor that you might be looking for. Now, if that is the case, there are tons of different, more protective options out there. But considering this attaches to the side of your F-150, expect it to protect against door dings and rock chips maybe in the parking lot, but nothing too crazy while doing some extreme off-roading. As far as the pricing is concerned, this one is gonna fall on the more budget-friendly and more affordable side of the pricing spectrum which is exactly what you can expect from Barricade across the board. Now, this one's gonna come in right around the $280 to $300 mark, and the price differences will come in with regular cab, super cab, and super crews, obviously depending on your personal trim.Now, that, I wanna keep in mind, is a very budget-friendly part, but it does come in with really high-quality materials which is great for guys looking to save money, saving the wallet while also getting some durable stuff. The installation is also going to be extremely straightforward. You can probably get this done in about 30 minutes to an hour, of course, with extremely simple hand tools. You wanna have a ratchet and socket set on deck, and, really, that's about it. It definitely comes with all the hardware and brackets you need to get the job done, so I will be giving this a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Obviously, the first thing you need to do is locate the pre-existing mounting holes, already located on the interior wall of your rocker panel. From there, you can take the brackets included in the kit from Barricade and bolt those up to those set holes. Once that's taken care of, and those are torqued down to spec as per the instruction manual included in the kit, you can pick up your Rattler steel running board, put them onto the brackets, and bolt them down.Now, it's not the heaviest thing in the world here, but I would recommend having a helping hand on deck, just to balance this thing out and keep it leveled while you work the ratchet. All you gotta do is repeat that process for the opposite side, and you're good to go. Just to wrap this one up here, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150, I'd recommend checking out the Barricade Rattler steel running boards, which are available right here at americantrucks.com.

      Love the look my truck has!!!

      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.

      Fantastic!

      Easy install and look great! Sizing of bolts in instructions are incorrect. Everything else was exactly as advertised.

      Easy to install

      These were easy to install! You do need two people because they are not small but the work was easy. Took about an hour. They look great and function wise are perfect. My mom and friends can now get in my truck easily!

      GREAT

      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.

      Great Step Boards

      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.
