Lower Deployed Step
AMP Research PowerStep Running Boards drop much lower than other steps. Most stationary running boards rest 1-2 inches below the body and are often still too far from the ground to be convenient for many passengers.

Maximum Ground Clearance
The PowerStep Smart Series Running Boards tuck under the vehicle when retracted, providing amazing ground clearance while driving, and the functionality of a perfectly placed step when deployed.

While every pickup truck, Jeep, or SUV can benefit from a set of running boards, only some consumers enjoy the aesthetic. Luckily, AMP Research offers its patented power step; a heavy-duty, power retractable running board that deploys when needed and retracts under the body when not in use.

AMP Research utilizes only the finest materials, including die-cast aluminum and stainless steel for exceptional durability and corrosion resistance. The step's surface is treated with a military-grade PTFE coating, guarding the underlying alloy against oxidation and abrasions; the black finish also provides a sleek, discreet appearance.

For ease of use, each power step includes low-profile LED courtesy lights, illuminating the step surface and surrounding area to ease low-light entry. To simplify the installation process, each set of power steps includes a vehicle-specific mounting kit, thorough instructions, and; if applicable, a plug-n-play OBD II module.

To ease entry into your ride without sacrificing aesthetics, consider AMP Research's power steps.
