Chances are that if you’ve made it this far you already know what a Oldsmobile running board is and what it does. But just in case you don’t, we’re more than happy to tell you. According to most sources, running boards have an obscure origin dating back to the 17th Century when they were added to carriages that were high off the ground and were meant to assist passengers in easily entering the cabin of the coach. Nowadays there aren’t quite as many horse-drawn carriages on the roads but 21st Century pick-ups and SUVs have taken their place and are certainly no easier to get into and out of. Sure, lifted trucks look amazing and are great for country roads and mud-bogging but if you need to bring a step-ladder just to get in your vehicle then it’s time to consider a set of running boards..
