When you’ve got a lifted pickup or sport utility, a stepping area further out from the body provides the extra leverage you need to angle up and into the cab. The Tough Step™ Running Board is designed to give you just that, and it provides a 5-inch x 25-inch step area that’s mounted at the end of two long, sturdy arms crafted from a solid chunk of aircraft grade aluminum. There’s plenty of room to maneuver the biggest of feet when leverage is needed, and the Tough Step makes a great alternative when you don’t want a full-length running board that may change the entire profile of your vehicle. The corrosion-resistant qualities of aluminum ensure your Tough Step will remain free from corrosion and looking good for the life of your truck.
While the diamond plate pattern on the step area gives a visual cue of industrial strength, sturdy construction from aircraft grade aluminum backs it up with rigidity that won’t flex when weight is put on it. The raised diamond texture also provides safe, sure footing even in the worst conditions when water, slush, mud, or snow are everywhere. 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. Dee Zee is so confident about the long-term performance of the Tough Step Running Boards, they back them with a limited lifetime warranty to ensure your satisfaction.180.40
