GM revamped its best-selling trucks for 2014, and they’re already on dealer lots and selling much better than anticipated. Sales are up 25 percent on Sierra/ Silverado from last year. The newly-designed truck went through extensive changes in the engine compartment, and GM came up with a whole new wiring scheme. That’s no big deal to aftermarket companies selling things like wheels, but what about products like electrically powered running boards?
That’s where PowerBoard NX comes into play. Bestop’s new PowerBoard NX uses wireless triggers on the doors. It doesn’t tap into factory wiring inside the cab, which greatly reduces installation time and effort. With Bestop’s ground-breaking “Wi-Fi” design, PowerBoard NX is up and running and ready to go with the new 2014 Silverado and Sierra trucks. Beware of similar products that get rushed to market that don’t have the OEM-quality testing and verification. Bestop uses as a Tier 1 supplier to GM and other major auto makers.
