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.

Look for AMP Research on A&E’s SHIPPING WARS

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Chris Hanna & Robbie Welsh from the A&E series SHIPPING WARS gave us a call asking for help with a couple of their trucks. According to Chris, Robbie is a little height challenged and sometimes has trouble getting in and out of the cab in a lady-like fashion. To solve this vexing problem, we set Robbie up with a pair of AMP PowerStep running boards that give her the necessary boost to gracefully get-up into her high-riding truck. Take a look to see how she does…


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.
