The Car Salon has Calgary’s best selection of Running Boards, Power steps, Nerf Bars and Hoop steps.
Running boards, tube steps, side steps, or nerf bars, no matter what they’re called or their configuration, what they all have in common is a place to plant your foot to help in getting in and out of tall trucks and SUVs, which is especially welcome on lifted 4-wheelers. Of course, they add a lot of style at the same time. With our huge selection of boards and steps, the only problem you’ll have is deciding on the pair that will look the best on your rig.
Running boards are the oldest type of cabin ingress and egress assistance, and were standard equipment on all early autos. But to say these aren’t your father’s running boards is an understatement. Today’s truck and SUV running boards come in lengths for the cab or cab and bed and feature wide widths for ample foot support and textured step areas for sure, non-slip, footing. They’re attractively styled and most have smooth edges and end caps for a smart looking, yet functional appearance. Some boards are available with an optional light kit that illuminates the step area when the doors are open.
If you want the helpful step, but like the clean look of a neat rocker panel, or need maximum ground clearance for off-roading, you can have it both ways. We offer powered running boards that extend outward when the doors are opened but retract flush under the vehicle when the doors are closed. These running boards are made by the same company that supplies running boards to vehicle makers like Ford and GM. They’re made of rugged cast aluminum with stainless steel pivot pins to resist corrosion, powder coated for durability, and include pinch sensors that reverse direction if resistance is detected.
