Automated, Patented Step-within-a-Step™
ActionTrac™ powered running boards are the next generation of automatic, power running boards. They are unique from other power side steps because they feature a patented step-within-a-step™ design -- two steps in one.
This -- along with their no-drill bracket install, control module operation and durable, non-corrosive construction -- makes them off-road truck and Jeep accessories unlike any others.
Easier access on larger, lifted trucks and Jeeps
The step-within-a-step™ design of ActionTrac™ powered running boards makes them the perfect lifted truck steps. There is one non-skid step on top of the main housing and one that deploys automatically as needed.
When the door opens, the control module deploys the electric step 8" below the top step and up to 15" below the inside of the doorsill, depending on the model. This provides safe, convenient access to the vehicle, especially on larger trucks, Jeeps and SUVs that are built for off-roading. It is also ideal for families with young children and for elderly passengers.
When the door is closed again, these lifted truck steps retract, providing plenty of ground clearance for the off-road trail.
Extra protection for the off-roader
With ActionTrac™ running boards' innovative step-within-a-step™ design, they offer a uniquely contoured look against the vehicle. This contoured design also offers extra protection for the side rocker panels. The powder-coated aluminum housing helps block small stone and other debris from scratching and marring the vehicle's finish.
Control module for enhanced safety
Each set of ActionTrac™ powered running boards is equipped with a control module for safe entry and exit no matter who you're bringing along for the ride.
During operation, the control module detects any obstructions in the path of the power step. This immediately pauses operation, eliminating the risk of pinch hazards and avoiding damage to the steps from rocks, trees and other obstacles on the trail.
For additional safety, the main housing has built-in LED lights that illuminate the power step upon deployment, providing convenient visibility in dark conditions.
Proudly made in the USA
Each set of ARIES ActionTrac™ running boards is made on American soil for the utmost quality from design to finish.
Easy, no-drill bracket installation
ActionTrac™ powered running boards are designed to offer a custom fit on your truck, SUV or Jeep Wrangler. They install with vehicle-specific brackets and use pre-existing holes in the vehicle to eliminate the need for drilling.
Unlike other power side steps, ActionTrac™ retractable running boards also do not require alignment and will not bind during operation.
ActionTrac™ running boards are also the easiest to install power steps on the market in terms of electrical, connecting directly to the vehicle's battery in a self-contained system that requires no splicing into factory wiring.
Weatherproof build for long-lasting operation
Just like your truck, Jeep or SUV, these power running boards are built for the off-road. They are made right here in the USA with extruded 6061-T6 aluminum, making them highly durable, yet lightweight and corrosion-resistant.
For added protection against corrosion, scratches and marring, they also come with a durable carbide black powder coat finish.
Quiet, maintenance-free operation
ActionTrac™ powered running boards operate with a single rotary motor, contained within the main housing. This single motor allows the electric steps to remain quiet and maintenance-free, while still offering fast, smooth operation.
The motor, pivot points and all of the electrical components are shielded within the main housing, keeping them well protected against the elements and ensuring long-lasting reliability.
