Irvine, CA (March 25, 2008)… The all-new 2008 Toyota Sequoia has been described as the most useful, refined and easiest-to-drive full-size SUV ever built. Now, thanks to AMP Research, this large, truck-based SUV can be easily outfitted with arguably the best step assist on the market today. Uniquely designed for Sequoia, the AMP Research Power Step, a full-length running board that automatically lowers when any door opens, then retracts under the rocker panel when the doors close, is now available for this powerful and roomy eight passenger SUV. A weather-tight motor and drive system does all the work in one smooth operation. Safety features include a 600 lb. weight rating per side, and anti-pinch technology that prevents the step from moving if resistance is encountered while in motion.
A computer designed mechanism optimizing both drop and extension, was developed by AMP engineers to provide the most natural step position, which is a perfect vehicle access solution for the highly versatile Sequoia. Whether you’re packed to get a crowd across town, or loading the open interior for a weekend getaway, access into any door is smooth and easy.
The kit includes everything needed for installation, including vehicle specific mounting hardware, detailed instructions, wiring harnesses and an electronic control unit. Backed by a 3-year limited warranty, and made in the USA, the AMP Research Power Step is nationally distributed by Bestop.
