Ford F-150 Running Boards & Side Steps

Enhance the utility of your pickup while improving its style with the right Ford F-150 truck step bars. Quality step bars or nerf bars provide easier access into a pickup that's high off the ground, making it easier to use in different conditions. These accessories are especially useful for owners with lifted pickup trucks. If you have a truck, you want to climb in more easily, one of the step bars from American Trucks is an excellent investment for you to make. There are many different types and varieties, giving you loads of options for you to use.

F150 Nerf Bars & Step Bars

Most of the Ford F-150 truck step bars are made from steel or a top-grade aluminum plate material. Most buyers opt for steel step bars because they can withstand more abuse over time while doing something like off-roading. Aluminum step bars withstand weathering and resist corrosion more effectively, though, making them an ideal option for low-impact driving activities. When you get the right step bars or nerf bars for your Ford F-150, you'll enjoy some or all of the following benefits as a result.


  • Easier access into your truck
  • Customize your ride
  • Make your truck safer to use
  • Protect the side of your pickup


Most steel side steps are protected with a powder coat finish that safeguards them from corrosion over time. These durable steps also add protection to the side of your vehicle, helping them withstand heavy use and keeping the side panels of your pickup safe even while off-roading through tall brush. If you want to reinforce the sides of your truck, adding side steps is a simple way to do so. Side steps are also an opportunity to customize the look of your ride further and pair nicely with other exterior trim options. You can get chrome, black chrome, or a range of other color steps for your ride. Choose the option you believe looks best to enhance your ride and enjoy the additional layer of customization you get from the accessory. With so many different color options available, it's easy to give your ride any look you like with side steps.

Running Boards for F150 SuperCrew Cab

The right Ford F-150 truck step bars make it much easier to climb into your truck, but it's important to select a pair that's going to meet your needs best. A pair of running boards or steps can be as short or as long as you like. For convenient cab access, you can get a short pair of steps, and you'll have all the support you need. If you want a convenient step along the sides of your truck bed as well for loading cargo and accessing your storage, you can get running boards that extend further toward the back tire of your truck. Think about the length of the running boards you select before upgrading your ride. Consider this related guide to help you select the ideal set of side steps.


Along with looking at the length of the nerf bars for your truck, you should also think about how much grip they provide you with. If you'll be climbing in and out of your truck in snow and slush, or while muddy and wet, it's important to get steps with as much grip as possible. Look for side steps with a diamond pattern, grip strips, and other rough texture or rubber additions to help enhance your grip as much as possible.


With the right side steps, your truck will be easier to use, and you'll enjoy the ability to customize your ride too. Consider adding on F-150 wheels and tires as well to really take the look of your ride to the next level. Choose the color, style, and length of side steps you like best and enjoy the added utility your truck gains as a result.
