Once upon a time - up until around 1950 or so - virtually all cars and pickup trucks had running boards. Running boards were the steps that ran between the rear of the front fender and the front of the rear fender back when cars and trucks had narrow bodies and pontoon-style fenders. Throughout the 1950's and 1960's, running boards disappeared from passenger cars as bodies became wider, although some vestigial running boards - called "steps" - are still included on some pickup models with narrow, smooth beds nestled between the rear wheels rather than extending over them. Running boards are still hand things to have, especially if you're short, past the age of fifty and/or left your knee cartilage on some high school football field long ago. The Lund Running Board Mounting Kit allows you to install running board on virtually any pickup or SUV. Made from industrial-grade steel, each Lund Running Board Mounting Kit is designed for a specific make and model as well as the type of running board you're planning to install. This makes for easy, quick installation. When you're looking for the best pickup truck accessories, do what more pickup and SUV owners do - go to Lund.
