    Hi all,

    I am looking for a set of the old style running boards that have the metal surround with screws and a separate center section for the tread. Does anyone have a set they would like to sell or trade.

    Thanks for any leads.

    There are two sizes of running boards with ring, early thru 64 (short) and 65 thru mid 69 (long). Which size are you looking for?

    Whichever size is closest to the running boards on an '82 FJ40. Would that be the 65-69 - long version?

    Thanks,
    Randy

    One thing you might have issue with is the drip rail that runs down the side of the body next to the hinges. Your late 40 running boards have a notch in them to clear the drip rail while the earlier running boards will not. On earlier trucks the drip rail stops at the bottom of the lower hinge.

    Good idea JonnyC, thanks.

    True Nick. I plan on modifying the drip rail.
