On the left is a main mounting bracket right out of the box of a competitor's running board. The caliper shows a thickness of .099 inch thick . On the right is one of our main brackets which measure in at .135 inch thick…. A full 35% heavier than the other brand.
Here’s a photo of the horizontal bracket of our running board, as well as that of our competitor's. Of course, ours is the thicker, U-shaped bracket on the left , and theirs is the less impressive one to the right.
Even the nuts & bolts we use are thicker and stronger. The photo above shows the T-bolts that hold the running board itself to the bracket. Naturally, ours is the thicker, heavier one.
