I have a 1954 GMC 470 retired fire truck. The truck has huge diamond plate steps and I would like to mount original big truck running boards. I will need the brackets as well. Let me know what you have. Thanks

Matthew

shipping zip would be 48169 (michigan)

Check that 1.5 or 2 ton running boards are or may not be same as a 470 GMC?
I don't know but wouldn't assume they are same as the smaller trucks, the 400 series has wider front axle and fenders and wouldn't be surprised if running boards are wider, but don't know.

I'm not sure if they are the same dimensions our not. My truck didn't have the stock ones on it when I bought it.

Still looking for these running boards and brackets. I thought I had some, but the person didn't want to ship them. Even with paying more for shipping they quit communicating with me. Looking for a good pair with brackets.

Thanks
Matthew

I have a pair from a 54 GMC 350 Series but not sure if the same size as the 470 . Can you get some measurements that I can check against mine. Thanks

I already dug all of those parts out for you, sent pictures & quoted the price for the parts & shipping.... but your last communication stated that you found the parts you needed somewhere else.

Yes, I thought I had a nice pair lined up. The seller went MIA.
