AMP Research invented the PowerStep™, the automatic, electric-powered running board that instantly extends when you open your door, and retracts out of sight when the doors close for improved ground clearance, aerodynamics and appearance. Its sleek design, all-weather performance and legendary reliability set the industry standard. PowerStep™ has die-cast aluminum alloy components and precision stainless steel pivot pins for rock-solid stability. The original PowerStep™ is American designed and engineered.
Reducing the overall weight of your vehicle can also help improve gas mileage. AMP’s high-strength aluminum steps weigh 10-20% less than typical OEM running boards or aftermarket steel tube steps.
Aerodynamics Under The Vehicle
AMP’s PowerStep™ running boards work automatically and improve safety and comfort while entering and exiting your truck. They are activated by your truck’s factory door sensors and extend within a few seconds when you open the door. Closing the door automatically retracts the PowerStep™ into the rocker panels, eliminating the drag produced by traditional stationary running boards. AMP’s PowerStep™ technology has been utilized as a factory option since 2003.
Invented, Engineered And Built In America. Only By AMP Research
The AMP Research PowerStep™ is designed, engineered and manufactured exclusively in the USA and is backed by a no-nonsense, an industry leading, 5-year/60,000 mile warranty.
LED Light Kit System
Engineered to integrate with the AMP Research Power Step wiring harness, four (4) low profile LED lights are strategically placed under the rocker panel for broad coverage and reliability in extreme driving conditions. When doors open, the running boards are illuminated. while doors are open the lights stay lit for a full five minutes, allowing plenty of time for entry or exit. When doors close, the lights turn off automatically when the steps retract.
AMP Research Outshines The Imitators
