Chevy Silverado Running Boards & Side Step Bars

Many truck owners struggle with climbing inside their ride, especially if they're using upsized tires or have a lift kit installed. As trucks get larger, children and some adults have trouble climbing inside the cabin during regular use. This is why side steps and running boards are getting more popular and why you should consider adding these accessories to your ride. There are so many different types of side steps to choose from that it can be difficult deciding on the option that's best for your pickup. To get started learning about your options, you can look through this in-depth Silverado step bars and running boards guide. It will explain the different options and help you decide what is right for your needs.

Chevy Silverado Nerf Bars & Side Steps

Before worrying about things like style and how you'll change the look of your ride, you should think about whether your Chevy Silverado side steps are functional or not. When you get new nerf bars or side steps, they should be wide enough and at the right height for your passengers to step in and out of your truck with ease. The right steps will make getting into your pickup simpler and more comfortable for everyone. Look for steps that are wide enough to stand on comfortably and think about how much grip they provide so that nobody slips when stepping up with wet, muddy, or snowy shoes on.


By choosing your truck's side steps with care you'll improve your ride in the following ways:


  • Make your truck more accessible
  • Enhance the appearance of your pickup
  • Customize the look of your ride
  • Add additional protection to the sides of your vehicle


Function is the most important element when choosing side-steps for your Silverado, but for most owners, it won't be the only consideration. You should think about the way your side steps or running boards will look as well. We offer side steps in chrome, black chrome, stainless steel, and many other colors. Our step accessories are also offered in different designs, with some having a tubular appearance while others have more of a square shape. It's helpful to think of new steps as another piece of exterior trim, such as a grill or a bumper that you can use to enhance the look of your truck in a specific way. Add these accessories to your ride, and you'll stand out everywhere you go.

Running Boards for Chevy Silverado 2500

A pair of Silverado 2500 side steps should be designed to handle the needs of a worker as well. Most Silverado 2500 trucks are used for hauling and in tough jobs such as construction or landscaping. When you're pushing the limits of your truck all the time and working in dirty environments, you need a tough set of steps that will hold up. Choose steps that are made from a rugged aluminum or steel, and choose options that can withstand large amounts of weight and that won't take damage easily.


Our side steps and running boards are made from different materials, but many of our Silverado 2500 owners opt for steel or other rugged materials that offer protection and impressive durability. If you are working in snow, slush, and mud on a regular basis, you need wide running boards with good grip and strong build quality for serious work. It's also a good idea to consider adding bed and tailgate steps to your pickup for easy bed access at the rear of your ride. Pair a set of full-length running boards with tailgate steps, and you'll have comfortable access to your truck's bed from any side you want.


Choose the side steps to your truck carefully, and you'll enjoy easy access to the cab while giving your truck an updated new look at the same time.
