Talking Running boards

I have seen a couple of trucks with plastic running boards. At least that's what it looks like. The are not flared on the ends, these are flat and rounded on the end.

Are they OEM or does anyone know where to get them?

Thanks

Look at the pics of my truck and see if those are the ones you are talking about. They are stock and I am selling mine. but it looks like your truck is an extra cab and not a crew cab.

Nope, That's not them.

I guess they weren't stock.

They have more of a rounded point at both ends and are completely flat on the top. The rounded ends may have a slight downward taper on the top if any at all.

I have only seen two trucks with them. One was a King Ranch and they were a camel color. The other truck was a cab chassis 450 and they were black.

I've got the black plastic look going on my truck and I believe they would look good.

I'll have to keep my eyes open for them at the dealers and stop and ask when I find one again.

Thanks.

I have a set off my 08 F250 Harley. I think those are the ones your talking about they have lights on both ends, mine are black with Stainless Steel inserts. I'm asking $200 plus shipping.

Is it a Supercab?

Do you know if they make them without the stainless?

Thanks

They sound like the set that came on mine from the factory. They are all black with black tread area, the ends are tapered.
Probably stock for the FX4's.

Yep!

I didn't remember the recess on the top but I am sure that's the ones.

Thanks

My new Lariat s'Cab came with them - I'm sick of the shiny nerf bar thing. Hard to stop the rust spots and they don't protect the paint at all. The $600 inside L-panels, stainless you can add on are probably a big help, but back when the factory running boards were standard I found them to be tough as nails, unlike aftermarket ones. The boards were the reason I didn't go FX4, plus of course the fact that a loaded Lariat is right purty. And they look great - black on a solid black truck

I have some camel color ones off my 08 king ranch if you want. I took them off as soon as I got the truck not my style.
