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 capable full-size pickup on the market and for 2009 furthers its capability by strengthening the frame while making it lighter, improving horsepower, boosting fuel economy and offering even more standard safety features. The all-new 2009 Dodge Ram is loaded with safety, comfort and security features engineered into every single corner. With 35 safety and security features, Dodge Ram is designed to protect and perform. Now, thanks to AMP Research, your new truck can be easily outfitted with two must-have safety and comfort truck accessories: AMP Research Power Step automatic running boards and the 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 into behind the rocker panels, eliminating reducing the aerodynamic drag produced by traditional stationary running boards. and Lightweight lightweight aluminum construction reduces weight compared with traditional fixed running boards and improves aerodynamics. All adding up to improved fuel effiency.
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 which is a perfect vehicle access solution for these highly versatile trucks. The step perfectly accommodates any user 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 lights up the boards when the sun goes down.
The AMP Research BedStep™ is the easy, practical way to access cargo in the back of your truck bed, even when towing a trailer. Black anodized and powder coat finish 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.
The AMP Research Power Step and BedStep™ is manufactured of high strength aluminum alloy in the USA and backed by a 3-year limited warranty.
