Next-Gen Powered Running Boards
ARIES has built their all-new ActionTrac™ powered running boards. These off-road-ready steps are the next generation of power running boards, featuring an innovative step-within-a-step™ design, smart sensors for added safety and no-drill installation.
They operate with integrated smart sensors that automatically deploy the power step 8” when the door opens. That’s up to 15” below the doorsill, depending on the application. The main housing offers an additional non-skid stepping surface on top, providing easy, two-step entry and exit. When the door closes, the power step is retracted and concealed within the housing for a sleek, contoured look. The smart sensors also detect any obstructions to avoid damage and pinch hazards. They mount using pre-existing factory holes, so there is no drilling, your install time is reduced and it eliminates the need for alignment on the pivot points and the risk of binding.
They are made from powder-coated durable, lightweight and corrosion-resistant 6061-T6 aluminum. The housing keeps 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 are water-resistant and the wiring harnesses are waterproof. This also makes cleanup very easy. Simply spray them down with a hose and let air dry. ARIES ActionTrac™ powered running boards are available for the Jeep Wrangler JK and JL, with select applications of pickup trucks and SUVs coming soon.
