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.

AMP Research Powerstep installed on a 2011 Ford Super Duty F250
This is a full installation of an AMP Research Powerstep installed on a
2011 Super duty F250. This, and all AMP Research products are made in the
USA. This step holds up to 600 LBS on each side. These Power Steps engage
and retract each time the door is open, allowing for easy access to the
cab, especially on lifted trucks. Our truck specifically has a 6" lift, and
these steps make a world of difference when entering our Super Duty. The
nice thing about these AMP Research Power Steps is that only one side opens
at a time, and stays open for about 5 seconds before retracting seamlessly
back under the F250. This means you have plenty of time to get out, close
the door, and open the rear door before they retract. The other nice thing,
often overlooked is that by removing your factory step you gain 6-8 inches
of extra clearance, and also improve the appearance.

How to Install a Set of Amp Research PowerStep Running Boards
Hello, Shawn here with RealTruck.com and today we are doing an AMP Research
Power Step running board install on an 2010 GMC Yukon XL.
Here is everything you will receive in the kit, including the idler linkage
assembly, motor linkage assembly, wire harness, controller, motor, motor
cover, rubber, cinch fastener, all nuts, bolts, grommets, tubing, cable
ties, and everything else needed for proper assembly. Bolt idler linkage
assembly to rear mounting tab, and the driving linkage to the forward most
tab. And make sure to leave the bolts loose, then you are going to want to
add the running boards and tighten down.
Next you're going to want to remove the power fuse, attach the power lead
which is a red wire to the positive pull on the battery. Caution, do not
ground the wrench out when engaged with nut. Attach the ground lead to the
negative battery pull. Using the two 11 inch cable ties mount controller to
the support arm next to the battery. Then plug in the wire harness,
ensuring that the locking tabs engage. Mount the long end of the wire
harness above the engine and down through the driver side wheel well. Zip
tie the harness to the calling clips and the fire wall, route the short end
down through the passenger side. Route the wire harness along the underside
of the frame. Make sure to secure it with the zip ties provided. Poke a
hole through the rubber grommet near the front door on the underside of the
floor panel with a small Phillips head screw driver. Then push both wires
through the hole. Pop off the threshold cover with the screw driver and
remove the cake panel, the panel will slide out from under the seat after
fasteners give away. Then pull up the carpet and thread both wires through
the floor panel. Do the same steps on the passenger side, except drill a
9/32 inch hole in the metal and add a rubber grommet to it.
Locate the wire loom in the door still. Carefully remove the wire wrap and
find the trigger wire. On the driver side it is going to be a light blue
wire with a black stripe. On the passenger side it is going to be a green
wire with a black stripe. Locate wire reward of junction shown in step 13.
Using the supply tab connector splice in the shorter trigger wire into the
wire found in step 12. Remove the plastic trim on the door near the mirror
attachment. Carefully pry up the window door lock switch plate. Remove all
the plugs from the switch plate. To remove the door panel first pry off the
door lock, and plastic covers by the handle and the door latch. Remove the
three door bolts and remove the door panel by prying loose all fasteners.
Repeat this process on the other side. Make sure the door weather guard is
pulled back, unbolt the speaker and unplug. Thread the plastic tube through
the accordion, repeat this on the other side. Feed the longer wire of step
11 through the tube into the door and pull out the plastic tube on the door
side. Route wire along harness to switch plate. Locate the brown plug and
using supplied tab connectors, splice into trigger wire.
The driver's side has a grey black wire and the passenger side has a tan
white wire. When the wiring has been completed, go ahead and reinstall the
door panel and start the wiring process on the driver side. The wiring
process on the passenger side is fairly similar to the driver side the only
difference is that you will be looking for a tan white cord to tie into.
When that is complete go ahead and insert the plug from the wire harness
onto the motor.
Now, slide the rubber grommet onto the wire harness into the slot of the
motor cover Insert the motor cover onto the motor, then add the plastic
push pin rivets into the mounting holes of the motor cover. Next, slide the
motor assembly on to the drive shaft and mounting bosses of the driving
linkage assembly. Use the two included bolts to fasten the motor down. And,
of course, repeat the exact same process on both sides.
Next, off to the lighting process. Using the supplied butt connectors,
connect the lamp wires, red to red, black to black. Make sure to do this
for all four lamps. Make sure to close and wrap wire with the conduit and
some electrical tape. Now it's time for installing. Find the center of each
point and wipe down the applicable area. Pull off the 3M tape backing and
stick to the undercarriage center of each door.
Once completely installed, you have yourself the most luxurious functional
and great looking electric step on the planet.
