AMP Research Powerstep Running Boards Content Image 01
Automatic Retracting Step
PowerSteps automatically deploy when the door opens and will retract after a 3 second delay when the door closes.

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.

Order Notes

Cleaning your PowerStep
In adverse conditions, debris such as mud, dirt, and salt may become trapped in the running board mechanism, possibly leading to unwanted noise, or binding.

Prepare for cleaning
Manually set the running boards to deploy: The running boards can be manually set in the deployed position by opening the door, and then place your foot on the step. Leave firm pressure with your foot on the step while you close the door. This will leave your steps in the deployed position.

How to maintain your steps:
Using a pressure washer to clean the front and rear linkages which are all 4 hinge points for your PowerSteps. Avoid spraying the motors directly.

After washing, apply silicone spray (dry Film lubricant) only, to all 4 linkage arms and all pivot pins, some of these pins will be located up high on the linkage arm as well. Then cycle the door to work the lubrication in to the hinge points.

Do not apply silicone, wax, or protectants like Armor All® to the running board. Do not lubricate with any greases, oils, WD-40, or penetrants.

This cleaning should be done periodically, or when debris such as mud, dirt or salt becomes trapped in the running board mechanism.
