GMC Sierra Side Step Bars & Running Boards

Make your pickup more accessible for everyone that uses it with our GMC Sierra side steps or running boards. Both side steps and running boards are side-mounted accessories that bolt on your truck and create a convenient place to step up and down. These accessories go on easily and are especially useful for a truck with a lift kit, oversized tires, and other height enhancements. We've assembled a Sierra 1500 guide to side steps and running boards for anyone interested in specifics, or you can look through this page for products you can use on your truck today.

GMC SIerra Nerf Bars

Function should be the most important consideration when picking with GMC Sierra running boards you get for your pickup truck. Whatever Sierra nerf bars you choose should be comfortable to step on, and they should offer enough space for you to step up and down confidently. Look at the width of the steps on your nerf bars and consider how good the grip is on these products as well. When you consider those two factors, you can choose a product that is going to function better for you overall. Running boards and steps come in different lengths as well, and some lengths are better than others, depending on your interests. Long steps are good for Sierra owners that need to access their truck beds frequently. Short nerf bars or side steps can give your truck a more low-profile or minimalistic appearance.


Add quality side steps to your Sierra and you'll:


  • enjoy climbing in and out of your truck more
  • enjoy added protection on the sides of your ride
  • have a way to accessorize your pickup more
  • be able to lift your truck up and still climb in


Our Sierra nerf bars are made from different materials, but they are usually aluminum, steel, or stainless steel in construction. These compact bars come equipped with a few steps that are strategically positioned in front of the doors on the cab of your truck. Select nerf bars or steps that will grant you access to your truck the most effective overall. These accessories are simple to install, and they make a huge difference on how you use your truck. To take the usability of your pickup to the next level, you can upgrade it on the outside further by adding exterior storage accessories so you have toolboxes, bed bags, and fuel storage you need for everyday convenience.

Retractable Running Boards for GMC Sierra Trucks

We have a variety of Sierra running boards and side steps, but one of the most popular products we offer is retractable running boards. Our retractable steps fold out when the truck is stationary. The running boards fold in when the truck is in motion, so they aren't sticking out. This helps prevent the steps from getting struck, and it helps give the pickup a cleaner look as well. Different Sierra running boards and side steps offer a variety of different benefits and features. Choose the steps that work to meet your needs best, and you'll benefit by adding them to your truck. Steps pair nicely with a Sierra lift kit and can help to keep your truck comfortable to use even when it's higher off the ground. Think about the accessories your truck can use most and add those to your ride to make it as functional as possible.
