At the beginning I did not know what Running Board means. I consulted a dictionary and found ‘step’,’footboard’ and ‘Running Board’ are synonyms. And it’s translated as ‘踏腳板’or ‘車側腳踏板’. But seeing is believing. I can’t visualize what a running board looked like before I had some pictures to see. I browsed Realtruck.com on the World Wide Web and the picture is below.
It’s different from a bicycle pedal although they have the same Chinese name “腳踏板”.
Finally, I am sure that I understand and I think it’s very good when children,old and patient get on the vehicles like RVs or Jeeps. Why I think it’s useful? Some RVs have no running boards and the tyres are too high to get on. In Taiwan I think installing running boards is not cheap. I suggest you surf the site Realtruck.com. They offer all the top brands including Aries, Bak, Dee Zee, Go Rhino, ICI, Iron Cross, Lund, N-Fab, Putco, Raptor, Romik, Steelcraft, Westin and more. And maybe we can choose lund running boards because they suit today’s pickup trucks and suv’s.
