Van Running Boards & Rear Steps

Gain Better Access With Running Boards and Rear Steps

More and more vans are coming now with heavier suspensions, all wheel drive options, and higher ground clearance. While these are all excellent features, they also all make accessing your van more difficult.  Our Running boards and rear steps make it easier and safer to get in and out of your van each day. 

Our van steps and running boards are constructed from  sturdy steel and aluminum and designed for years of daily use.

With Advantage, not only do you get access to industry-leading upfitting products and accessories but you gain a partner with the industry knowledge to make sure you are purchasing the right equipment for the job.

Mistakes to Avoid When Upfitting a Commercial Vehicle

Not knowing your vehicle – Not all cargo vans have identical designs. They may play a similar role, but each model we work with has its strengths and tradeoffs. To upfit, you need to not only take the size of the cargo areas into account but also consider important attributes like maximum weight capacity, proper balance, and other logistical considerations that are easily overlooked when all you have is a catalog and a vague idea of what you want your vehicle to accomplish. A lopsided cargo area with heavy equipment to one side will result in uneven tire wear and other maintenance issues down the road. 

Ignoring input – Commercial van upfits are intended to satisfy the needs of a team, not an individual. Experience is perhaps the best guide when it comes to upfitting a commercial van but this needs to be tempered with consensus. Upfit decisions should be made with efficiency and safety in mind.

Doing it all by yourself – There is no reason you need to go through this process entirely cold. At Advantage Outfitters, our goal is to make sure you get the service vehicle you need without overspending or purchasing equipment that will never be used. Our installers are trained and certified to bring you the most value for every dollar you spend on upfitting.
