Truck owners have an ever-increasing need for superior capability, style, comfort and safety in their vehicles. The new Ford F-150 remains the most popular full-size pickup on the market for 2009 with a stronger, lighter frame, more power with improved fuel economy and more standard safety features. The all-new 2009 Dodge Ram is loaded with safety, comfort and security features engineered into every single corner. Now, which ever truck you choose, AMP Research can easily outfit your new truck with two must-have truck accessories: AMP Research Power Step automatic running boards and BedStep™ bumper step.
Arguably the best step assist solution on the market today, the AMP Research Power Step, a full-length, power-deploying running board is now available for these truly capable trucks. It is activated by your truck’s factory door sensors and extends within a few seconds when you open the door. A weather-tight motor and drive system does all the work in one smooth operation. Closing the door automatically retracts the Power Step behind the rocker panels, reducing aerodynamic drag. Lightweight, super strong aluminum construction reduces weight compared with traditional fixed running boards, adding up to improved fuel efficiency.
Advanced trucks like the new F-150 and Dodge Ram are designed for maximum capability, convenience and safety. Your truck needs to help keep you safe and in control and the Power Step makes access into any door smooth and easy with a 600 lb. weight rating per side, ensuring a safe step for any weight and anti-pinch technology that prevents the step from moving if resistance is encountered while in motion. Developed by AMP engineers, this patented design optimizes both drop and extension to present the most natural step assist solution to access these highly versatile trucks. The step perfectly accommodates the driver and passengers of any size or age, even in inclement weather with its non-skid ribbed step surface. The kit includes everything you need for installation, including vehicle specific mounting hardware, detailed instructions, OEM quality wiring harness and an electronic control unit. An optional LED Light Kit illuminates the boards when the sun goes down.
The AMP Research BedStep™ is the easy, practical way to access cargo in your truck bed, even when towing a trailer. Black anodized and powder coat finished for long-term durability, the BedStep is designed to bolt up to the truck’s existing rear bumper mounting points in about five minutes with no drilling. AMP’s patented BedStep utilizes a spring-loaded cam to deploy with an easy nudge. Step up safely, grab what you need and then a tap of the foot will stow the step assist securely under the bumper.
The AMP BedStep cleverly works with the tailgate up or down. That means while you are towing your boat, camper or toy hauler, you can still easily and safely climb up into the back of the truck to grab your gear.
