Aries’ powered running boards

Aries’ ActionTrac Powered Running Boards feature the company’s “step-within-a-step” design, integrated smart sensors for added safety and no-drill installation. The sensors deploy the power step 8 inches when the door opens, and the main housing offers an additional nonskid stepping surface on top, facilitating easy entry and exit. When the door closes, the power step is retracted and concealed within the housing for a sleek, contoured look. The sensors also detect any obstructions to avoid damage and pinch hazards. The running boards mount using pre-existing factory holes, which eliminates the need for drilling and alignment on the pivot points and helps reduce installation time. They are constructed from durable, lightweight and corrosion-resistant powder-coated 6061-T6 aluminum. The housing helps keep the power step dry in wet, muddy conditions and seals the internal components off from water, dirt and other off-road debris; the motors within the steps also are water-resistant, and the wiring harnesses are waterproof, which helps make cleanup as easy as spraying the boards down with a hose and letting them air-dry.
