Judging by the photos of the Paul Sherry conversion Promaster I would guess they are using standard conversion van running boards instead of ones made for the Promaster: http://paulsherryconversionvans.com/ram-promaster-conversion-van

So instead of searching for running boards for the promaster just search for running boards for conversion vans.
Hello everyone! My name is Brian and I am from Paul Sherry Conversion Vans.

The running boards that we use are from the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. It's a perfect fit and they're very sturdy.

Thanks to Flash for starting this thread and Thanks to BrownBodie for the link to auto custom. They look so good and are priced right I just ordered a set for 100 inch both sides for $369. THANK YOU BOTH

What I meant was 100 inch long running boards for both sides. I have sliding doors on both passenger and driver side. You can get a shorter board for the driver side if u do not have a slider on that side.

I tried adapting a set of power retractable ones from Amp Research but I gave up. I'm hoping they'll be building a set for a our vans.

One of the design features that attracted me to ProMaster is the low floor height.

But I also like to have good ground clearance.

Running boards can make it difficult to slide underneath a van. Took the extruded aluminum running boards off my Club Wagon the day after I brought it home. They made it next to impossible to even look under the van just to inspect things, let alone slide under to accomplish any repairs.

Prefer the cast aluminum 'coach' steps.

I see your point but you gotta do whats best if you have a handicape child in your home. Plus along with a set of mud flaps my van will stay cleaner.

Do those boards have non-slip rubber inlays or are they just what they appear to be, hard plastic or some sort of aluminum finish...

Mine will be here tomorrow. But i believe they are molded plasic with aluminum frame under it. The video shows galvanized mounting brackets but i was told on the phone they were powder coated. I emailed www.cyclevan.com to get aprice on what looks like the same running board and got a price back of almost $570.00 and $36.00 s/h, and that was for a long board for passanger and a short board for the drivers side.
