OEM Linking Pin: Ford F-150 Factory Installed Running Boards

Many of the 2015-2020 Ford F-150s come with factory installed running boards. If you have had to replace the inner rocker panel lately, you may have noticed that the replacement inner rocker panel was missing hardware to install the running board after replacement. So, we reached out to our contacts at Ford to find the answer to this problem.

The inner rocker panel part number listed in the parts catalog is FL3Z1610009a. This part number is for vehicles without factory installed running boards.

There is a new part number for vehicles with factory installed running boards, it is HC3Z- 2610111-A. This part number will include the clinch bolt (stud) for the running board attachment. Ford will be updating their parts catalog to reflect this updated part number.
