From all the pictures I've seen it looks like the Land Cruiser trim includes running boards - but I don't see them listed anywhere, nor do I see them available as an option. Has anybody had eyes on the mid-level trim to confirm? Thanks

My LC trim with premium package has them listed in the spec (illuminated), but I’m swapping for rock rails.

Spec sheet from my incoming LC trim (non premium) shows "Running Boards" in the exterior section. On the toyota.com builder, it does visually show the running board on any LC trim, although I don't see it called out in the specs aside from the illuminated running board as part of the premium package.

Interesting. I also have a LC trim (non premium) coming and it does not mention running boards.

I had 2 options when ordering Rock rails or Running boards. I went with Rock rails ...
 
Just wondering why power running boards are not offered on the LC when they are standard on the Tacoma Limited and 4R limited/platinum trims. I’d prefer these than the fixed running boards. Hopefully some 3rd party will make these available to purchase.

My guess won't hold up to the off-road use that most people plan for LC.

I'm 99% sure the LC trim has running boards.

I do not think the 4Runner Limited has power running boards, unless that is new for the '25, the current limited comes with fixed running boards.
 
@Jayhawk78 I'm with you on the 99% sure with the LC. The Gen 5 4R Limited starting in 2014 had the option of power running boards. More often with the 3rd row option, probably an 80/20split with the 2 row. They are only installed at the factory.

Powered running boards are more accurately "powered steps" as they are made from thin walled extruded aluminum and would bend / crack easily with a hard impact. The factory nerf bars on my Tacoma were for looks only, I replaced them with AMP Research powered steps, which I am extremely happy with. I do not do rock crawling but do enjoy the step and the looks.
 
Can anyone that has already received their Base trim with the Premium package confirm whether they came with running boards or not? It's definitely spelled out in the description of the Premium package. But, then again, so is a sunglass holder and there is not one of those apparently.

Yes, running boards on the Mid-Tier "Base" trim, doesn't matter if you have a premium package or not. They come regardless. Only the 1958 & FE trims do not get running boards or have it as an option.
 
Ours has running boards. I think that if you had a 1958 without boards, getting in and out of the vehicle would difficult. I think you got to have something, boards or rock rails.
