Running boards for Four Trax?

I am interested in purchasing running boards for my TRX 300! Does anyone know who makes aftermarket bolt on boards?? I've seen photos of some mounted on Four Trax!

Hey y'all, I'm wanting to install the molded plastic foot guard/running boards that are on the newer quads. The attach to the fenders and existing foot peg. I realize the plastic may have changed some from 96 to now, but I can get enough bolts and some heat to remedy that. I have been all over the web and can't find anything but the metal mesh type. I can build that offshore during lunch break. I like the new plastic "wrapped" ones, I think they will help support my fenders a little more.

good luck finding any like what your wanting to put on your trx300 !..lol. the newer style ?..they are made for the ranchers and recons..pretty much all the newer atv's..becauseeeeeee..the newer atv's have the fenders come farther down i think ?..i just bought new floor boards for my rancher...at about 20 something bucks a pop..you can try to make them work on yours ?..but...i'm pretty sure it won't look no where near factory !..lol.

i've seen floorboard conversions, but never on the fourtrax 300's. just the foreman's. the dimensions wont line up and you will end up wasting your money.

X2, I've seen the conversions on the Foreman 450 and the Rancher 350, but never on the Fourtrax 300.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I would settle for the original heel guards! I have been looking for a decent used set and just can't seem to find any. New are like $55 each side IF they can still get them. I have all the metal support pieces for both sides, the plastic part for the right side (altough it is cracked) and no left side plastic part. I like the factory look and would love a set of these. If anyone happens to stumble across any, please send me a PM. Thanks!

Yep, those are hard to find.
