I'm driving a 2010 Platinum, and just recently got her stuck in almost a foot of MUD. And I mean stuck stuck. After spraying off the runningboards I didn't have any problem with them. Lots of dust in Arizona too, no problems there either. They work pretty well.

1 year anniversary here. Meaning 1 year in a Canadian winter with snow, freezing rain, AND salt! No issues last winter at all. I think, and its just a guess now, we had a day that was super cold, maybe 25 below C, and the boards did not deploy. But that was by design IIRC.

I would like the protection that normal boards give as well, to stop stones and grease from flying up, but I didn't want to give up clearance, nor have to worry about getting hung up on bumps when I'm off the road. Its a good trade off in my opinion.

Enjoy the Platiunum.

I am having trouble with the running boards. Sometimes the drivers side works and sometimes it does not. The passenger side works fine. I took it to the Ford dealer and they are ordering a new motor for it. They said it may take 2 weeks to get the motor. I hope it will solve the problem. So far Ford has been great and so is the Ford dealer I bought it from.

BTW I live in sunny Florida (no snow)
Anyone else having trouble with their automatic running boards?
Ford dealer called me this morning. They got the new drivers side running board assembly in (and some drivers side seat clips. That is another issue.) I took the truck in and they did their thing. I just picked it up and everything seems to be working great.

You can probably trade them for some Amp Research power steps which completely hide away and have a nice rugged coating on them.... i know that the stock platinum steps cost more then the amp research steps.. so someone might be willing to trade for the more luxurious look.... i love my amp steps - http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xe9...arch-powe_auto

Does anyone find that the power steps hit them in the leg when opening the doors?

Same thing... The ford power steps are manufactured under the AMP license. I plan on adding these steps myself.

Thanks for the link to the install vid

I just installed mine last weekend and I have not had that problem.

I really like them and my wife absolutely LOVES them as she can now get in with ease. (she is only 5' 2" tall)

Default Want to trade Lariat Chrome Running Boards????

I just bought a 2011 F-150 Lariat supercrew and wanted the platinum but couldn't afford it. I want to find a set of drop down running boards if anyone knows of any for sale or trade.

Thanks,
Matt

Amp research will sell you some for about $1100. They are fantastic!
