The PowerStep Extreme
Many heavy duty vehicle drivers will agree that driving over rough terrain can be challenging.
Fortunately, standout and dynamic companies like AMP Research (currently purchased from
Lund International by Truck Hero), are expert leaders in the field of the automotive
aftermarket industry. The much-needed self-propelled PowerStep Xtreme was engineered to
get the job done in grueling climates. Arctic temperatures, graveled roads, thick mud
surfaces, no matter the turf, the AMP Research PowerStep Xtreme was designed to endure.
The PowerStep Xtreme Inception
The inception of the PowerStep proved to be nothing less than an engineering marvel by
completely revolutionizing the aftermarket automotive industry. Leitner (the founder of AMP
Research) observed that running boards were oftentimes attached too high or too close to
the vehicle, which prevented the much needed uninterrupted access to the running boards
themselves. For this reason, the PowerStep Xtreme was designed as a result of strict
ergonomic analysis. An assessment panel, comprised of a diverse group of individuals, aided
in shaping practical height and extension dimensions that resulted in the consummate
running board design.
Ergo, the PowerStep Xtreme running board became part of the AMP Research family of
celebrated automotive accessories built to last and forever in demand. The design is sleek,
sophisticated, fully functional, and economically sound.
Manufactured to Perfection
The cleverly designed AMP Research PowerStep Xtreme lives up to its name. After X-treme
testing under real-world driving conditions with the benefit of ergonomically designed
components, the PowerStep Xtreme performed masterfully through each challenge.
Manufactured from quality lightweight long-wearing parts and robust die-cast linkage
mechanisms together with stainless steel hinge points and bearings, this sturdily designed
running board is in a class by itself. The top-notch electric motor and black-anodized finish
brilliantly strengthens the density of the natural oxide layer of the PowerStep’s metal surface.
Additionally, the durable electric motor is unequaled when it comes to dependability requiring
minimal, if any, maintenance.
PowerStep Xtreme Performance
The high-powered automotive electric Xtreme running board automatically extends when
doors open and disengages after closing. In addition, the design of your truck or SUV will
remain as sleek as ever, unencumbered by the PowerStep Xtreme installation. Without
missing a beat, LED lights come into action once the running boards are deployed. Great for
situations where there is little to no lighting.
Manufactured for optimum performance, the Xtreme provides safety due to the running
board’s sturdiness and dependability. Thanks to groundbreaking construction and dynamic
style, the PowerStep Xtreme is a well-suited attachment for most heavy-duty vehicles. Totally
practical, easy to assemble, and adaptable, the Power Xtreme has all that’s required for
dependability in rough environmental conditions.
