Dodge Ram 1500 Running Boards & Side Step Bars

Step up easily into your truck using Ram 1500 running boards or side steps. Running boards are special steps that mount to the side of your truck in order to give you a comfortable stepping point when climbing inside your cab. As trucks get taller, a set of steps become more and more important for getting inside to drive. Side steps become even more important if you have a lifted truck that's going to be even more difficult to climb in. If you're wondering how running boards work or how to pick the best option, see this guide to learn how it all works. Get to know the different step options for your truck, and you can pick out an option that's going to give you the performance you want.

Nerf Bars for Ram 1500 Trucks

When shopping for Ram 1500 running boards, it's important to consider which option will be easiest to use overall. Running boards or nerf bars are for stepping up and climbing inside more than anything else. You want your Ram 1500 nerf bars to help you climb up as easy as possible. That's why you should get nerf bars that offer wide steps and good grip points. Search for products with deep steps, extended steps, and products with rough ridges or a diamond pattern to grip your wet, snowy, or muddy boots. There are going to be times when you climb into your truck with dirty boots; it's helpful if your nerf bars grip your boots effectively, so you don't slip.


A good set of nerf bars offer the following benefits:


  • Step up more easily
  • Enhance the look of your pickup truck
  • Protect the sides of your truck
  • Climb down effectively
  • Access your truck bed


While selecting nerf bars or running boards, there are some options that will only offer stepping points near the cab of your truck. There are other options that stretch all the way to the front and rear wheels. These options allow users to reach parts of their truck bed as well and can help when tying cargo down at the rear of the truck. If you're hauling with your truck regularly, you should consider running boards that will give you access to your truck bed reliably. You could also invest in a truck bed step that will put a stop right at the end of your truck's bed. There are also steps that install in the hitch of your truck to give you a convenient rear step. Consider these different options for more ways to access the rear of your pickup truck.
