New Product: AMP Research BedStep2 for 2015–2016 Ford F-150

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

AMP Research BedStep2 for 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150

AMP Research has released a new BedStep2™ for the 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150. The BedStep2 is a deployable side-mounted bed access step that mounts behind the vehicle’s cab allowing easy access to bed-mounted tool boxes, fifth-wheel hitches, and cargo—and extremely handy thing to have.

The BedStep2 can be installed on either side of a pickup truck and easily mounts to the vehicle’s underside. Made with high-strength aluminum-alloy components and precision stainless-steel pivot pins, the BedStep2 has rock-solid stability and durability. Equipped with maintenance-free self-lubricating bushings, the BedStep2 works great in all kinds of conditions. Plus, its military-spec, corrosion-resistant, anodized and PTFE-coated finish will look great for years.

With its easy deployment, a wide step, and 300 lb. capacity, the BedStep2 is a great addition to the latest Ford F-150. This step will fit both 5.5-foot and 6.5-foot beds, but the long bed will require an installation kit (part number: 10-79412-01A).

The BedStep2 is invented, engineered, and built in the USA and carries a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.

AMP Research Great American Giveaway: Round 3 Winner!

AMP Research Great American Giveaway #3 Winner

Congratulations to First Lieutenant Troy Givens, the Motorz AMP Research Great American Giveaway winner. Troy will receive a set of AMP Research PowerStep™ running boards and his choice of a BedStep®, BedStep2™ or a BedXTender HD™ for a total prize package valued at more than $1400! Congratulations and best wishes to Troy, a truly great American. Visit Motorz to read Troy’s story and see all the contest winners this season!

Good morning to you folks! My name is 1LT Troy Givens and I am a combat wounded veteran. I currently reside in Eugene, OR where I am undergoing physical therapy and medical treatment for the injuries I sustained in Afghanistan in Dec. 2010. Prior to relocating to Oregon, I was in San Antonio, Texas at the Brooke Army Medical Center. During several months there in the ICU, I learned to walk again and was introduced to the AMP Research PowerSteps. (You would be hard pressed to find a wounded Soldier with a truck down there who didn’t have their truck set up with the PowerSteps and BedSteps.) I do not meet the criteria to get assistance through the VA because I still have some use of my leg. Although I can bend my leg, I lack flexibility in my knee and half of my lower quad muscle is physically missing on my right leg. My right knee is being held together by scar tissue and calcification. Therefore, the overall stability of my leg is quite minimal and muscle control is very weak, especially on the days when I have physical therapy. I am hoping AMP Research can assist me in acquiring the PowerSteps and BedSteps for my truck. These products would be very beneficial to me in my daily life. Thank you for your time! ~ Troy Givens

Congratulations again to Troy. Keep up the amazing work!

AMP Research Great American Giveaway: Round 2 Winners!

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

AMP Research Great American Giveaway #2 Winners

Congratulations to John and Ruth Sherman of Dunnellon, Florida, the latest winners of the AMP Research Great American Giveaway! John and Ruth will receive a prize package of AMP Research PowerStep™ running boards and BedXTender HD™ cargo cage for their 2004 Ford F250 Crew Cab! The couple was entered into the contest by their daughter Kymberlee, and you can read their story below!

“My parents started a non profit called Jacked Up For A Cause in 2009. They experienced their own hardships in 1995, and were on the verge of losing everything. Our community came together and helped us survive. The outpouring of kindness was so overwhelming that my parents wanted to pay it forward. That’s how Jacked Up for a Cause came to be! My parents hold car and truck shows and car washes to help needy families by supporting food pantries and Toys for Tots, and are trying to aid in the campaign to bring awareness to the affects of bullying. They have to haul a lot of equipment and supplies as well as a mini truck that was designed to promote the anti-bullying campaign. The AMP Research PowerStep running boards would help out immensely because my mother has trouble getting in and out of the truck, and the BedXTender would dress up the truck and work perfectly to help hold all the cargo securely when traveling for Jacked Up for a Cause events!”

Congratulations again to John and Ruth and keep up the amazing work!

The contest returns on August 15th and ends September 30th at midnight Pacific. The winner will be announced October 1st, 2013.

ProPickup Announces Winner of “Big Red” Truck Giveaway

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Big Red

Texas businessman Gary Koenig will be presented the keys to the ProPickup-sponsored “Big Red” sweepstake’s dually – a 2008 GMC Sierra 3500 Crew Cab 4×4 work truck with more than $25,000 in parts and accessories including AMP Research PowerStep™ running boards and BedStep® bed access steps. Koenig does a lot of business in the greater Houston area providing tire repair services and field repairs for construction contractors and oil companies. “The more I read on the ProPickup website about how it’s equipped, the more I realize it’s got everything I need for my tire business. And how the truck is setup will make a fine service rig for this area,” says Koenig, who first saw the truck on display at the ProPickup Truck Expo in Dallas and again at the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Big Red has been the perfect platform to demonstrate AMP’s hard-working truck accessories to business owners like Gary,” says Mark Wronski, Director Marketing for AMP Research. This is the third annual sweepstakes truck giveaway by ProPickup magazine, which is focused on work trucks and accessories. “Giving away a truck each year is a highlight of our staff. But we couldn’t build the trucks without the support of our great sponsors and advertisers like AMP Research that make it all possible,” says Bruce Smith, ProPickup’s founding editor.
