Noah: I'm Noah from AmericanTrucks, and we're looking at Rough Country's Cab Length HD2 Running Boards in Black for the '19 and newer Silverado 1500 Crew Cab. Now, whether you've got your Silverado lifted pretty high and you're in need of a step that helps you get up into the cab, or you've got kids and they need a little bit of a boost to get into the back seat, these cab length running boards from Rough Country will be a great fit for you. Really, the front and foremost feature of these running boards is the fact that they run the entire length of the cab. Now, they will only fit a crew cab, to be clear, but that is a seriously long-running board, and it serves as a step for the back seat as well as the front seat.Now, there are a lot of running boards and side steps that don't run that full length of the cab. Now, these running boards have got the whole cab covered on multiple fronts. They also serve for some rocker protection as well, maybe from some of those bigger rocks or debris that'll get shot up at the cab. Now, I will say they look right at home on a stock truck, too. And I feel like running boards just make a truck kind of feel like home. Now, looking at the construction of these running boards, these guys are gonna be pretty darn sturdy and they're gonna take some weight. Now, they are made from heavy-duty carbon steel and then coated with a textured black powder coat. This is gonna be non-slip for when your feet are wet or muddy because of the grit that's in the coating.Now, a huge problem with running boards is the fact that they seem to rust away to nothing when they're just painted black. But a textured powder coat is gonna keep any moisture from getting into the metal underneath. And you can be sure that these side steps won't start to rot out from the elements. Now, then, on top of that coating, there are these foot pads as well, which are gonna serve as some extra protection as well as some added grip for your shoes.Now, these running boards from Rough Country come in right around the $400 mark, and this is about average for the pricing of aftermarket running boards for the '19 and newer Silverado. And for that price, you are getting full crew cab-length running boards with a nice fit and finish.When it comes to getting these running boards installed on your Silverado, you can expect to spend about two hours on it. And it definitely would help to have a friend hold the other side while you get them bolted up as well since these things are really long. Now, the install itself, though, is pretty simple, and any DIYer should really be able to handle it since we're only looking at a difficulty of one out of three wrenches. Now, speaking of install, let's head over to the install bay and get these bolted onto our Silverado.Man: For this install, you will need 3/8 and 1/4 ratchets, extensions, 10-millimeter and 13-millimeter sockets, and an impact. What's up, guys? Today we're gonna be installing some step rails on our Silverado. So, let's get started. So, if your truck has factory running boards, the first step is gonna be to remove those. And to do that, there are eight 13-millimeter bolts holding your drop-down brackets on. And to remove those, we're gonna use our 13-millimeter socket on our impact along with an extension. And for the upper bolts, we're gonna go ahead and use our ratchet, because it's a little tough to get in with an impact. So, now that we're under the truck and we're ready to remove our factory running boards, first, we're gonna remove the top four bolts holding our brackets in place located on the backside of our rocker panels. And then we'll move on to our lower bolts with our impact and our extension to remove the bottom bolts from our rocker panels so we can go ahead and remove our factory running boards. And to do that, we're gonna use our 13-millimeter and our socket for our upper bolts and our 13-millimeter extension and impact for our lower bolts.Now you may need an extension on your ratchet as well to go ahead and bring your ratchet out far enough to get some room on it, and go ahead and start with removing your top bolts. Then we're just gonna move down the line and remove all of those first. So if you're not on a lift like we are and have these lift arms to go ahead and help you catch your factory running boards, it's a good idea to have some jack stands or a second set of hands to go ahead and help you as you're taking these bolts off to go ahead and catch your factory running boards. So, let's go ahead and take our bottom bolts off using our 13-millimeter socket and extension on our impact.So, once you have these all off, you can go ahead and repeat this process for your other side. So, to get started with this install, if your truck did not come with factory running boards, you're gonna have plugs over your threaded inserts. So, for that, you're gonna wanna remove the first, third, fourth, and sixth plugs. Ours already had them off. So, we're gonna go ahead and start installing our brackets. And to do that, we're gonna use our 13-millimeter bolts and flat washers provided with your kit and our four brackets. So, we're gonna start installing our brackets by grabbing our 13-millimeter bolts and flat washers, lining our brackets up, and we're just gonna leave these hand-tight for now so we can make any adjustments once we install our boards.Now, once you have all your brackets in place, you can go ahead and repeat this process on the other side. So, now that we have our brackets installed, we can go ahead and slide our running board into place. To do that, we're just gonna lift it up over the lift arms and slide it onto our brackets. Now, if you're not on a lift like we are, it might be a good idea to have a second set of hands or a jack stand underneath, just to give you some extra support. I'm just gonna [inaudible 00:07:07].Next, we're gonna install our supplied flag bolts, and they just slot into the specified locations underneath of your board. Now, if you find you're having trouble getting these squared up, they do have a 1/4-inch square hole in them. So, you can use a 1/4-inch ratchet and a small extension to give them a little turn to get them squared up to your brackets. So, after you have your flag bolt in place, you wanna go around to the side of the truck and make sure your inward or outward set is how you want it. And then we can go ahead and add our 10-millimeter bolts and flat washers to go ahead and tighten down our boards.So, next, we can go ahead and install our flat washers and 10-millimeter nuts to our flag bolts, and then we can tighten them down using a 10-millimeter socket on our ratchet. And then we can repeat that for the next three brackets. Once you have all your brackets tightened down on this side, you can go ahead and repeat this process for the other side. So, now that we have our boards tightened down on their brackets on the bottom, we can go ahead and come back into our inner brackets and tighten them down once you're satisfied with your front-to-back adjustments. And to do that, we're gonna use our 13-millimeter socket and extension on our ratchet. Now, once you have those tight, you can go ahead and repeat that for the other three brackets and do the same thing for the other side.All righty, guys, that about wraps up our review and install of our Rough Country Cab Length HD2 Running Boards in Black finish for your '19 to current Silverado 1500 Crew Cab.
