A closer-look at the Clearview Accessories Power Boards

By Unsealed 4X4 4 Min Read

Have you lifted your four-wheel drive recently? Added big tyres as well? Then maybe had a kid or two, or sadly you might have sustained a knee or back injury, and need a helping hand? Whatever the case, if you are reading this article, it’s probably safe to assume it’s because you are looking for a set of side steps.


What are they 

In the simplest of terms, Power Boards from Clearview Accessories, are a retractable side step. They have been designed to open or close, when you open or close the doors of your 4×4. Being a retractable design, this means us serious four-wheel drivers keep all their ground clearance when off-road. However as we usually lift our vehicles, and fit larger diameter tyres as well, this can make accessing the cabin tricky. Especially for those with, with exisiting injuries or those who may be slightly on the vertically challenged side…

Power Boards solve that problem. Tucked away when driving, deployed when a door is opened. See, simple! 

How do they work?

Clearview’s Power Boards are activated by the vehicle’s door sensor. The steps lower to a more useable and comfortable height to access or exit the vehicle. Once you close your doors, the Power Boards lift back up. Power Boards have been designed to neatly install under your four-wheel drive, between the wheel arches on both the driver and passenger side.
