2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Could Do Without the Running Boards
August 13, 2010
Oh I'm sure the less-tall folks on staff find the running boards on our Raptor quite useful. They're big, sturdy and have a grippy surface.
For me, however, they are nothing but shin magnets. Every time I get in I have make a conscious effort to avoid smashing my lower leg into them. If I actually use them, I then have to crouch down to slide inside. It's quite annoying.
If this were my truck, and I kind of wish it was, I would take the boards off first thing.
