aluminum running boards?

aluminum running boards?

Postby tinworm [OP] » July 12th 2013, 10:25pm

wondering if these are available aftermarket from anywhere for our vans? Im talking about the extruded stuff usually found on full size vans and pickups.
Ive been searching around and haven't found anything, but after borrowing a van this last week with some nice running boards like that, I wouldn't mind them on my van as well. Anyone seen an astro with extruded aluminum running boards? has it been done?

ask him if hes interested in shipping across the country, im totally serious about buying them if hes interested in selling, but he would have to box them up

I can handle the shipping end though, and email him a shipping label
