Dee Zee - Brite-Tread Running Boards

If you need a high-strength running board that matches the big-scale style of your pickup truck or sport utility, Dee Zee offers the Brite-Tread Running Boards crafted from diamond plate aluminum. Wraparound edges on three sides create a look that’s strong enough to fit in on an 18-wheeler and smoothly finished enough to fit in on any compact luxury SUV. Vertical splash guards block spray from wheel openings so horizontal running board surfaces remain cleaner and safer to use. Even when covered with water, slush, or snow, the multitude of raised diamond patterns provides a textured running board surface to squeeze wetness out from under your feet and provide safe, sure footing.

Using Dee Zee's groundbreaking Quick Bracket system (Ford and Chevy only), these running boards mount to frame areas quickly with little or no drilling, and beefy mounting brackets provide weight support where you really need it. Wheel-to-wheel coverage is available with an under-cab section and an under-bed section sold together or separately. Dee Zee proudly manufactures Brite-Tread Running Boards in the United States and backs them with a limited lifetime warranty to ensure your satisfaction.

Since 1977, Iowa-based Dee Zee® has sought to create products and accessories for trucks and SUVs with class-leading levels of style, quality, and longevity. Their success and growth in the marketplace has always been fueled by listening to what customers want, then building the things competitors did not offer. Dee Zee believes being environmentally aware is extremely important and views efficient manufacturing to minimize pollution and waste as a corporate responsibility. That philosophy goes hand in hand with fundamental beliefs that a product which effectively resists corrosion represents a better value for the customer – giving it a longer useful lifespan instead of becoming more junk in a landfill. CARiD is proud to offer the Dee Zee product you’ve seen on this page as well as the company’s complete lineup of running boards, grille guards, tool boxes, bed protectors, mud flaps, liquid transfer tanks, cargo carriers, and much more.

Good Product
These running boards are just what we needed. They look great and are very sturdy. They were fairly easy to install after a few holes were drilled. I don't know why they make 3/4 ton vans without running boards but these did the trick.

Quality Control Suffers
Finish is as good as the cab boards, but the welding is crappy on the front of these boards.

Good Product - Real Running Boards
Steps are wide enough to actually put your foot on. They make it easy to get into my Chevy Silverado 2500 HD after I had right hip surgery. These are real running boards like you would find in days of old.

My Experience
I've known about this brand for like 20 years or something, they deliver good American-made products. I've searched everywhere to find the best price, and CARiD.com had the best one by over $35! It's same product, but better price. The first rail took around 45 min to install, having never done it before. The second one took no more than 15 min. Note that an impact wrench will be very helpful vs a socket wrench and torque wrench.

Installation was very easy. The process took about 45 minutes (myself). I am very happy with the product, and I would 100% recommend getting it. The only downside is that CARiD was out of stock when I ordered, however they kept me informed of the status of my order. Bottom line - I received excellent customer service.
