AMP Research has taken the Powerstep automated running boards to the next level of innovative refinement, simplifying the electrical installation to a mere "Plug-and-Play".  The revolutionary Plug-and-Play wiring system eliminates the need for accessing behind door panels as part of the normal installation process. 

The Powerstep with Plug-and-Play uses the On Board Diagnostic (OBDII) port to connect the controls of the Powerstep to the computer system of the vehicle.  Estimated installation time reduction of a minimum of 90 minutes.  Lastly, if the OBDII port is already in use, the Pass-Through Harness allows for an additional port at the connection point. 

OBDII became standard on vehicles 1996 and newer. Vehicles produced before 1996 need to be hard wired and use the Powerstep Listed Here.  Not every vehicle with an OBDII system is compatible if you're not sure about fitment please Contact Us.

In less than 1.3 seconds after opening any door, Powerstep automatically extends down providing a natural 10-12 inch step height. The step itself is wide and flat allowing for good foot placement, and in the lowered position, it extends outward 10-12" allowing occupants to take more of a natural step in or out of the vehicle. A non-slip textured surface allows for usage in all weather conditions.

The AMP Research Power Step has been tested in a variety of environments and temperatures from -40F to +200F. Powerstep automatically presents a step assist low enough for children to easily climb in and out of the tallest trucks. When all doors are closed, Powerstep retracts up and under the truck, flush with the rocker panel, keeping step surfaces free of mud, snow and road grime.

The lightweight, yet rock-solid running board and rugged die-cast linkage components are crafted in the USA of aircraft-quality aluminum, black-anodized and PTFE coated for maximum corrosion protection. Precision, stainless-steel hinge points and bearings ensure trouble-free action. And the heavy-duty electric motor is designed and tested to provide reliable, maintenance-free operation for decades.

To meet the quality standards of GM, Ford, Chrysler, Mopar, Toyota and Nissan, AMP Research is ISO 9001:2008 with Design certified.  Covered by 16 patents, the AMP Research PowerStep features weatherproof OEM-quality motors, wiring harness and sealed connectors. The AMP-designed electronic controller employs pressure-sensitive, pinch-proof safety technology.

While AMP Plug-N-Play Powersteps can be installed by an experienced DIY owner, they do require drilling holes and some adjustments after installation.  A typical instruction Guide is available on this page by clicking on the "Product Related Documents" tab above.  Vehicle specific intructions will be included with your purchase.
