AMP Research PowerStep Smart Series Running Board Install

Step-by-Step Step Guide

See what it takes to install a pair of AMP Research Powerstep XTreme Electric Running Boards.
This video shows AMP Research Powerstep XTreme Electric Running Boards getting installed on a Ford F-150 Super Crew, but the process is very similar for all trucks.

Getting into your truck shouldn’t feel like climbing Mount Everest. That’s why AMP Research invented Powerstep, the automatic, electric-powered running board that instantly extends when you open your door, and then hides itself safely out of sight when the doors close for improved ground clearance, aerodynamics and appearance. Its handsome design, all-weather performance and legendary reliability set the industry standard.
