Installation of AMP Research Powerstep on 2012 Dodge Ram 3500
This is a full installation of an AMP Research Powerstep installed on a 2012 Dodge Ram 3500. 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 truck. 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 vehicle. 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. Visit AMP-Research.com for more.

Bestop Power Step Running Boards Review - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-demo-bestop-power-step-B75136.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. This is the Power Step running boards. They are automated running boards for all makes and models of your truck, whether it is a Toyota, Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge and Nissan. What you will notice here is the Power Steps are in the closed position, which will allow you full ground clearance between your vehicle and the ground. So, if you do any kind of off-road activity - hunting, fishing, ranching, farming - your boards will be up out of the way, maintaining full ground clearance. As soon as I open up the door, as you will see, the boards down. They deploy in about 1 seconds time. It provides me with a true stairstep in and out of the vehicle. Close the door, and you will notice the boards will go away. As soon as I am ready to get out of the car, open the door, my boards are here, ready for me. The boards have a 600-lb load rating, so they will not go anywhere. The boards operate independently, front and rear door. Each side will operate independently, so the passengers side is not deploying when the drivers side deploys. Just close the door again and the boards are up out of the way. There is a built-in safety feature on here. Moms might worry about their kids playing out in the driveway. Anything that gets in between the boards, the boards will automatically stop, so no one can get caught or hung up in there. Then simply open and close a door to reset the boards and you are good to go. One big advantage to the Power Step running board is that it is a wide base. It is a 6-1/4 inch base, which provides a nice, stable place. if I have to get in here and put a child or groceries in the vehicle, I now have a nice, stable base. It is also provided with a textured material to prevent slipping in any kind of ice, snow, rain, etc. - all that good stuff.
