PowerStep Automatic Running Board
The actual step portion of the PowerStep can handle up to 600 lbs. of weight capacity per side. The generous step area provides ample room for optimal foot placement, and the no-slip surface ensures a greater level of safety for passengers entering and exiting the vehicle. Traditional running boards are notoriously uncomfortable, and can significantly hinder some people's physical ability to climb into or exit out of a vehicle. When lowered, PowerStep automatic running boards offer a 10 to 12-inch outward extension as well, allowing passengers to engage in a more ergonomically correct stepping motion, increasing the ease at which they can enter or exit the vehicle. In addition, PowerStep automatic running boards have been rigorously tested for superior quality, proving to withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to over 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
An ancillary benefit of using AMP Research PowerStep running board is the improvement in fuel efficiency that they afford. There aren't too many topics that seem to be more ubiquitous and heavily discussed than gas prices, and most drivers appreciate any improvement in fuel efficiency that their vehicles can muster. Traditional running boards are stationary, which creates additional wind resistance during transit. PowerStep automatic electric running board retract once the vehicle doors are shut, affording a much more aerodynamic design than stationary running boards. This reduced wind resistance will help improve the overall fuel efficiency of your vehicle. In addition, PowerStep's high-strength but lightweight aluminum running boards are 10-20% lighter than typical aftermarket steel tube steps or OEM running boards. This has a significant impact on the overall weight of the vehicle, which will positively affect fuel efficiency as well.
Every aspect of AMP Research PowerStep automatic running board reveals superior craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. The running boards and linkage components are die-cast, black-anondized and comprised of an aluminum composite that is in common use in various aircraft, ensuring lightweight yet extra-strong performance. The Teflon-coated finish is comprised of a military-grade material in order to provide optimal resistance to corrosion. The bearings and hinge points of these running board are made of stainless steel and assembled with superlative precision, ensuring smooth motion and overall quality performance.
Safety concerns have been thoroughly addressed as well, which is why these running boards come equipped with highly sensitive pressure sensors, ensuring "pinch-proof" operation. PowerStep automatic running board also come with an integrated LED light system, allowing for a more sure step even in dark conditions. You can also opt for a stainless steel trim kit to add an extra bit of flair to the edges of your running boards, although you will need to ensure that this trim kit will be compatible with your particular make and model of vehicle.
The electric motor that powers the AMP Research PowerStep automatic running board has been designed and rigorously tested to ensure maintenance-free functionality for decades to come. This heavy-duty motor is weatherproof, and can be seamlessly mounted on the undercarriage of your vehicle. All of the wiring, mounting hardware and instructions are included with these running boards, but for best results, it is recommended that you consult with a professional installer to ensure a safe and reliable installation. The PowerStep can be installed on several makes and models of trucks, including Chevrolet/GMC, Ford, Jeep, Nissan, RAM and Toyota. Please take note that additional diodes may be required based on certain factors including what year of model your truck may be, as well as whether or not you have remote keyless entry.
