Difference in Running Boards?

I'm trying to get my Ranger outfitted so it'll look good and Running boards/nerf bars are a must. I have some aftermarket ones mounted on the truck but I would like to swap them out for factory ones. Anyone know which ones will fit. I've heard there are about 6 different styles. You have ones for standard cab 4x2 and 4x4, then extended cab 2 door 4x2 and 4x4 and then extended cab 4 door models 4x2 and 4x4. I have an extended cab 2 door 4x4, so will the only ones that fit my truck have to be off an extended cab 4x4 or would a 4x2 fit? Will ones off a 4 door fit and look right? Someone get me straightened out.

The rear brackets are completely different.


Ask me how I know...


lol...i made the mistake of buying 2dr '07 steps for my 4dr. Then, went and bought a set of 4dr steps. I'm stuck with two steps. And soon will sell the spare set since I'm converting the 2dr bars into 4dr bars. lol.

They mount to the body itsself...will work with bodylift with no modding whatsoever.

Just like trevors, except the look black, not grey after he undercoated his.

No, drivetrain doesn't matter, just cab styles. As long as they come off of an ext. cab 2 dr you're good.
