footboards are often found on classic cars or off-road vehicles. In the past, many models had built-in running boards, as they often had a fairly high entry point. But even on modern vehicles there are retrofittable running boards that are offered by various manufacturers and can also be installed as an electric version. But today we would like to deal with a different type of running board. Today we're talking about running boards for the passenger's footwell.
What is a step?
Running boards for passengers are usually small tuning parts that can be retrofitted in the footwell in a few simple steps. They are usually made of sturdy aluminum or stainless steel, are CNC cut and bent and powder-coated in different colors (often black). They often have grooves or punched holes that provide more grip and at the same time also serve as sole cleaners. A step for the passenger is often universally applicable and can be riveted or screwed in almost every car. The vehicle then has the practical step in the footwell, which is particularly important in competition vehicles (Drift vehicles, rally cars etc.) makes sense.
What are the benefits of running boards for passengers?
The step boards for the passenger that we have described do not serve as an aid to boarding, but are intended to give the passenger more support in competition vehicles. This can be particularly useful for smaller passengers. They offer more support in the vehicle and at the same time can remove coarse dirt from the shoe soles. A step for the front passenger can be retrofitted with little effort. If possible, it should be based on a variant adjustable joints be respected. This ensures that every passenger has the optimal footrest.
