The First Great American Giveaway Winner Announced

Monday, April 1st, 2013


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.”

To submit an entry for a great American in your life, visit for details and official rules. The next contest will run April 15 – June 1, 2013.

AMP Research PowerStep Now For 2013 Ram Trucks

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

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.
