2011 F-150 Lowering Factory Running Boards

Hey All,

I have an Ď11 F-150 XLT 4x4, It has the Factory running boards, as anyone that has them knows, they are about worthless as they are right up under the body. Iíve never stepped on them, I just step over them.

My wife is short and when I changed the tires, I put taller 34Ē tires on. So it made the height problem worse for her.

Anyway, Iíve read that the running board bracket from an Ď08 F-250 will lower the running boards as they are the same running boards.

But I have not been able to locate a P/N for the bracket(s).

I am hoping someone has done this and knowís the P/Nís needed and/or someone that works for a dealer or something that can help me out to getbthe correct P/Nís.

Thanks!

-ThaChad

Maybe I need to take a pic of my running boards?

I think a pic WILL help. I know the running boards on my (now traded in) 2005 King Ranch and on my 2014 Platinum are VERY usable.

I was thinking more of a picture of them on your truck, so we could see what you're talking about. But, they are pretty.

The link I posted is for running boards and hardware, including brackets, for a 2008 F-250, which is what you asked for.

I know what you asked for, but maybe you should look at the retractable running boards. I have both the fixed (on one truck) and the retractable (on the other truck). The retractable are definitely lower than the fixed and allow my wife easy access to the passenger compartment.

I would LOVE the retractable running boards, but #1, I canít afford them & #2, I live in the Mid-West, the Snow amd salt will make them fail. I havenít seen anything the snow & salt canít destroy.

Yes, Thank you.

Unfortunatly, it doesnít tell me which brackets I need. I honestly donít know, that is what I am seeking/asking.
