This stylish and corrosion resistant aluminum running board is styled with a contemporary look that matches today’s sleek crossover sport utility vehicles and comes in a universal length to fit most applications.

Today’s crossover vehicle takes the things that are good about sport utilitys and improves on them, eliminating the wasted interior space, cumbersome handling, and poor fuel economy that are hallmarks of heavy, body-on-frame SUVs. Crossovers are engineered on modern passenger car platforms with sophisticated suspensions and running gear that put yesterday’s truck-based utilities out to pasture. A running board for modern crossover vehicles should embody the same forward thinking and elegant packaging that goes into the design of these vehicles themselves. That’s why Dee Zee offers the 71" NXc Running Board designed with a streamlined shape, tapered edges, and high-strength aluminum that will be light weight and corrosion free for the life of your vehicle.

The NXc board surface is covered with durable powder coat and textured with high-grip black pads for safe footing – then stylishly framed with wraparound edging to frame all visible sides of the running board. Even if covered with water, slush, or snow, the round pads along the running board surface effectively grab onto your shoes for no-nonsense grip as you step in to your vehicle. Using Dee Zee's high strength brackets (sold separately) these running boards mount quickly with little or no drilling to provide weight support exactly where it’s needed. Once installed, all components will be highly resistant to scratches, road contaminants, and discoloration. Dee Zee is so confident about the long-term performance of the NXc Running Boards, they are backed 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 that it is extremely important to be environmentally aware 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. Our website 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.

Buick Enclave Mount Brackets
A little difficult to install. The mounting hardware is tough to get into the mounting holes under the vehicle. Once you do get it figured out they fit pretty good. It took more than a few simple hand tools.

Running Boards
I really like how they look. I got the black with chrome trim. They look really sharp on my explorer. Very sturdy, and they help my short wife get into the truck. Pretty easy to install. Do yourself a favor and watch YouTube videos before installation. The paper directions are not the greatest. The gap referenced by other reviews is accurate. I do wish they mounted a little closer to the truck, but overall I am very satisfied.

The running boards look great and the installation wasn't a problem. But, there is a gap. The installers weren't able to install the running boards close enough to the vehicle, so there's a gap between the running boards and the car. It would look nicer if it was flush up against the car.

Very happy with running boards. Though one did have a small dent in the chrome. Luckily it is on lower side and not visible from eye level when mounted. Mounting went smoothly.
