The Bestop PowerBoard NX has all the same features as PowerBoard, PLUS we've added patent pending wireless technology that greatly reduces installation time and effort. This is the evolution of powered running boards.PowerBoard NX builds on the success and continuous improvements of the original PowerBoard. NX adds patent pending Wi-Fi technology, so the board is easier and faster to install.

Because of the WiFi components, PowerBoard NX installs in less time than the original PowerBoards, and for the first time, does not require any contact with the interior of the vehicle.  This means no door panels, kick panels, kick plates or carpets, are touched; no cutting, splicing or tapping in to the complicated wiring harness. The PowerBoard is an automatic running board that hides underneath your truck when doors are closed and extends to meet your foot when door opens.

Complete kit includes two steps, wiring harness with controller, weatherproof motors, LED light kit and hardware. The NX kit adds 4 door sensors and a receiver unit. All PowerBoards feature an integrated light kit, coated fasteners to resist corrosion and a heavy Duty, weatherproof, pressure sensitive , pinch-proof technology motor to assure safety and workability for years to come. The PowerBoardNX has new Patent Pending wireless technology that makes it a whole lot smarter, and a whole lot easier to install. But thats not the entire story. Its also the end result of several years worth of continuous improvement and testing of every single component, on every PowerBoard, wired or WiFi.

It's the board that moves. Powerboard® NX with Wi-Fi activation makes for faster installation without removing interior door panels or cutting into underdash wiring.

HOW IT WORKS: Wi-Fi modules attach to door jams and detect when any door opens or closes. They communicate to the wireless controller which then uses programmed logic to operate the boards independently.

SMART: Same design as the original PowerBoard®, but uses patented Wi-Fi technology to sense when the boards should deploy or retract.

EASY: Installation is faster and far easier. No more removing door panels, no tapping into factory color-coded door wires inside the cab.

SIMPLE: Attachment of Bestop's exclusive door transmitters solves all the door open-close signalling and multiple connections. No need to use the OBD connector.

  • Electrically powered running board hides stealthily underneath your truck when doors are closed and extends down to meet your foot when door opens.
  • Drops down about 6" and out 2" to create a stair-step into your truck.
  • Full length board works with both front and rear doors, driver and passenger sides.
  • 600 pound load capacity per side.
  • Complete kit includes two full length boards, OEM quality sealed motor, controller, hardware, wiring harness with weatherproof connectors and LED Light kit.
  • Powerboard® NX features wireless activation components that reduce installation time and effort.
  • Built-in anti-pinch safety features senses pressure to keep board from retracting on your hand and feet.
  • Patented high strength, die-cast aluminum linkage built to last in any climate.
  • OEM quality sealed motors that perform in any weather.
  • OEM quality heavy-Duty wiring harness with weatherproof connectors.
  • Sturdy 6.25 inch wide aluminum running board features ultra-durable, non-slip, powder-coated surface.
  • Integrated LED Light Kit mounts to linkage or to body and illuminates board and ground below for easier access in and out of the cab.
  • 100,000 mile/3-year limited warranty

Linkages: The PowerBoard supports 600 pounds per side, and thats unchanged. But our engineers realized they could make them even stronger with some changes to the linkages. Like buttresses on the motor mounts.

Wedge Block: Our continuous improvement goes this deep: the wedge block now has a slightly different shape than the original design. It provides a much larger clamping surface. That reduces slippage, and that reduces problems.

Wiring Harness: It was just four little wires. But removing those four door wires from the harness means NOTHING goes inside the cab. Fewer headaches for installers, with no door panels, carpets, or kickplates being removed.

Testing: All PowerBoards have been tested in real world conditions and in laboratories. They meet stringent OE truck requirements, and theyre the most rigorously tested product ever at Bestop. But were not done: testing continues every single day.

Controller: Usually we try to make things quicker, but we discovered that slowing down the board made it more elegant. More refined. More like the OE boards. It also gives kids a bit more time to get in the back doors: the PowerBoard waits for them.

Separate System: Because the PowerBoardNX doesn't tap into the trucks wiring, theres no chance of conflict with other aftermarket items, like door alarms or remote starters.
