ARIES ActionTrac: The Next Generation of Powered Running Boards

 

ARIES ActionTrac™ powered running boards are unique from other powered side steps because they are actually two steps in one. The patented step-within-a-step™ design, simple-2-install™ no-drill brackets, no-splice wiring, smart control module, and weather-resistant construction truly make these retractable running boards an asset for the off-road truck or Jeep.

ActionTrac™ powered running boards have one 4” wide step on top of the main housing and one 3” wide step that automatically deploys as needed. When the door opens, the control module deploys the power step 8” below the main step and up to 15” below the doorsill (depending on model). ARIES’ two-step design offers enhanced safety and easier vehicle entry and exit, especially on large, lifted vehicles. It is also helpful for families with young or elderly passengers.

Rather than folding up and away underneath the vehicle, the ARIES ActionTrac™ contours to the rocker panels, providing extra protection against door dings and small road debris. And because the power step folds up into the main housing, everything is contained and shielded from the elements. The power step, pivot points, and all internal electronics stay well protected from rain, mud, sand, snow, and more.

Finally, the additional top step provides much easier access when engaging the roof of the vehicle for cargo or cleaning.

All ARIES ActionTrac™ powered running boards are engineered with a simple-2-install™ system, and each set is made for a vehicle-specific installation and a custom fit. Using preexisting factory holes, the brackets eliminate drilling on virtually all models (some Ram applications excluded). They also do not require any splicing into the factory wiring. The boards, control module, and magnetic sensors comprise a self-contained unit.

Constructed from powder-coated aluminum to be rigid, lightweight, and non-corrosive, ARIES ActionTrac boards boast a 650-pound static weight capacity and operate with a quiet, maintenance-free rotary motor for lasting dependability.

CURT (16066): A25 5th Wheel Hitch with GM Puck System Legs

The CURT A25 5th wheel hitch uses a patented cast yoke to allow for unimpeded head movement while providing exceptional stability for the trailer. The yoke’s poly-torsion inserts suppress shock loads and reduce excessive noise, and the head’s high-strength, interlocking jaws give the trailer the freedom to pivot and swivel as needed.

The 16066 comes with a set of CURT OEM puck system 5th wheel legs designed to mount directly into the four-point mounting system of your Chevrolet or GMC truck with truck bed puck system. The unique quarter-turn anchoring system allows the 5th wheel hitch head to drop easily into the puck system; with just a quarter-turn, the hitch can be installed or removed as needed. The anchors can also be adjusted to eliminate any chucking noises.

The A25 is fast and simple to operate. Its extra-wide head opening increases the coupling area for the trailer, while its lockable, single-throw handle self-resets to the ready-to-couple position after uncoupling. It even has a coupling indicator that is visible from the truck cab, which shows the status of the connection and eliminates the need for you to check multiple times while coupling.

The 16066 is protected by a carbide black powdercoat and a limited lifetime warranty.

Note: Requires GM puck system for installation (long-bed trucks only). Includes A25 5th wheel hitch head (16580) and GM puck system legs (16025).
