AMP Research Product

Whether you haul your favorite dirt ride with a Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Nissan or Hummer, there’s a rock solid built AMP Research Power Step to fit. Manufactured from high strength, aircraft grade extruded aluminum and protected by a durable non-slip powder coat finish, AMP's Power Step offers features that no other running board, tube step or nerf bar can match. Engineered with a heavy-duty motor and drive system, and a patented multi-link design that easily handles 600 lbs., the AMP Research Power Step offers the rugged durability required of a tow workhorse, on or off the road.

Only the AMP Research Product Power Step automatically deploys when doors open, and then quickly retracts under the rocker panel when the doors close, out of harm’s way with no loss of ground clearance. Activated by the vehicle’s door sensors, the AMP Research Power Step extends down to a natural stepping height, dropping 12-13 inches, door sill to step. Once retracted, this power-deployable running board stays cleaner as it is not exposed to dirt and grime. For added convenience, AMP Research has introduced an L.E.D. Light Kit that illuminates the stepping surface for improved nighttime safety and an optional 2-inch Extension Kit for lifted trucks.

Nationally sold by ElectricStep, the Power Step kit includes left and right side running board assemblies, two motors, mounting hardware, OEM quality wiring harness, control module and a detailed installation guide. Applications include the Ford F-150 and Super Duty, Dodge Ram (Quad and Mega cab), the Chevy Silverado, Suburban or Avalanche, GMC Sierra, Yukon, and the Jeep Wrangler TJ.

The Amp Research Bed Step

The AMP Research BedStep™ is the easy, practical way to access anything from your truck bed for every day use or when towing a trailer. Black anodized and featuring a Teflon powder coat finish for long-term durability, the BedStep is a simple, no drill, bolt-on process to install that even leaves the hitch receiver free for when towing. Unlike other hitch-mounted steps, the AMP BedStep cleverly works with the tailgate up or down. That means while you are loading whatever it is you stow in the bed, you can quickly and safely climb into the back of the truck to grab your gear.

AMP’s patented BedStep utilizes a spring-loaded cam to deploy with an easy nudge. Step up safely, grab what you need and then a tap of the foot will stow the step assist securely under the bumper.
