Dee Zee - Side StepsDee Zee - WarrantyDee Zee - About


  • Set of 4 reinforced steel brackets designed for NX Running Boards
  • Black powder coat finish provides protection from corrosion
  • No drill installation on most vehicles
  • Hardware and installation instructions are included
  • Running boards are sold separately
  • 3-year manufacturer warranty
  • Proudly manufactured in the United States

While running boards add style to a vehicle, they must also deliver an array of abilities to the users. Running boards must allow a lady to remain a lady while entering and exiting a vehicle, they must provide traction for any footwear regardless of weather, and they must firmly support more than one adult standing on them when clearing snow off the roof in winter. Proper support brackets allow running boards to deliver these abilities without a spongy feel, flexing, or tilting away from the vehicle when stepped on. Dee Zee fully appreciates this, and creates its running board mounting brackets from reinforced, tempered steel to provide the highest level of strength.

To ensure NX mounting brackets last without corroding and becoming compromised, Dee Zee applies a thick protective layer of black powder coat that will stand up to the most corrosive salt, slush, and road grime. Since brackets are areas that seldom see cleaning the way other parts of a vehicle do, Dee Zee has tested their powder coat layer to make sure it is thick enough to endure the corrosive coating that builds up over time. The NX Mounting Bracket Set comes with 4 brackets, bolts, and related hardware necessary to install both driver and passenger side running boards. Easy-to-follow instructions are included, and Dee Zee backs the brackets with a 3-year warranty against defects and corrosion.

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.

Need Better Instruction
Dee Zee® DZ16241 - NXc Mounting Brackets
The running board looks absolutely amazing. But the installation instruction of these mounting brackets are just horrible. 1. It was very badly printed, I suggest go get the PDF from Dee Zee website and print a copy by yourself. 2. It was just too simple. the driver side and passenger side need different installation direction, and for one of the bracket, it even needs to use a different hole, the instruction just didn't mention these at all. it only shows the instruction for driver side. 3. The way of the "threaded plates" are a bit confusing, I still couldn't understand how they worked and not sure if I actually installed them properly. it would be better to have some tips about them.

Not Quite Perfect
Dee Zee® DZ16241 - NXc Mounting Brackets
The driver's side fit perfectly. However, the passenger side did not. One of the bolts used to fasten to the underside of the frame of the Jeep was too long to put all the way in. We had to use a much shorter bolt to get the bolt to tighten--this was on the front bracket. The rear bracket was misaligned by about 3/8-1/2 inch. We had to widen the hole on the mounting bracket to align with the bracket that holds the running board. Be aware that these two brackets on the passenger side will need some modification if you use them on a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Good Product
Dee Zee® DZ16241 - NXc Mounting Brackets
Without these brackets, you can not install the running boards. These brackets allow the installation to be customized for each vehicle. Installation was only 45 minutes.
