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…
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.

ROUND 2 OF THE GREAT AMERICAN GIVEAWAY ENDS MIDNIGHT, JUNE 1ST, 2013.
THE WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED JULY 1ST.
Tustin, Calif. – April 1, 2013 – Earlier this year, we teamed up with Motorz to introduce a very special contest called The AMP Research Great American Giveaway. Through this unique contest launched on February 1, entrants were asked to provide information about an exemplary American who owns a pickup truck and goes the extra mile to serve family, friends, community and/or country for a chance to win an AMP Research PowerStep™ system, and a choice of one of three other eligible products from AMP Research. The winner of the first contest is Bobbi Jo Wnuk of Bonduel, Wisconsin who will receive the AMP Research PowerStep system and the BedXtender HD™.
Ms. Wnuk, entered by Jason Heinz, drives a 2009 Ford F-150 and does a great deal to help the Special Education Department at the Wisconsin Bonduel School District. She also helps with homecare for the elderly and the disabled in the community, heads up a benefit for a neighbor fighting cancer, and serves as a volunteer with Bridge The Gap for Autism and the Autism Society of Northeast Wisconsin (both non-profits). Along the way, she puts her F-150 through some rough Wisconsin driving conditions.
“We received so many excellent entries that it was very tough for us to choose just one winner,” stated Mark Wronski, marketing director, AMP Research. “Bobbi’s entry stood out because of the extensive volunteer work she does, the way she uses her truck, and the benefits the AMP Research products can provide in making her life and her volunteer work a little bit easier. Bobbi is truly a great American, and we are thrilled to be able to award her this prize package.”
“This contest was developed to improve the lives of truck owners that help others,” stated Chris Duke, host and executive producer, Motorz. “We want to thank the people who make a difference, to recognize them and support the good work they are doing.”

What is it?
This all-new PowerStep application from AMP Research is designed specifically for 2009-2013 Ram trucks. Part # 75138-01A
Why you need it?
The AMP Research PowerStep automatically extends when a door opens making it easy to enter and exit the truck cab. Retracts when the door close, storing itself out of site behind the rocker panel. It comes with low-profile LED lamps that illuminate the step when it’s dark.
How is it made?
First, like all AMP products, it’s designed and built in America. The running board is an extruded aluminum design with twin-internal ribs for added stiffness and has a high-texture powder-coat finish for maximum grip in wet weather. Supporting up 600 lb per side, PowerStep linkage arms are made of high-strength, die-cast aluminum alloy with a military-spec, anodized and Teflon® finish to resist corrosion and precision stainless-steel pivot pins ride on maintenance-free self-lubricating bushings and it’s covered by a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.
