Mo­tor­ized En­try and Exit for Our 2018 Ram 3500


Mo­tor­ized en­try and exit for our ’18 Ram 3500

The next chap­ter of our ad­ven­ture to cus­tom­ize Mike Sut­ton’s ’18 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab is a pre­cur­sor for an­other mod­i­fi­ca­tion. In this case, we’re tak­ing baby steps on up­grades that will be nec­es­sary down the road. But in ac­tu­al­ity, they’re not baby steps at all. The AMP Re­search Pow­erStep is a great ad­di­tion to any pickup at stock height that didn’t come with a step, and it’s a great re­place­ment for the un­sightly, bor­ing fac­tory ver­sions many trucks are equipped with. They are even more use­ful if you’re plan­ning to lift your truck, but we will get back to you later on that one.

Mak­ing the choice to in­stall a Pow­erStep can be mo­ti­vated sim­ply by the in­con­ve­nience of en­ter­ing or ex­it­ing a ve­hi­cle without it. The elec­tric-pow­ered run­ning boards make it much more con­ve­nient to get in and out of your truck with the open­ing of your door. As soon as you pull the door han­dle, the step drops into its full, ex­tended po­si­tion and is ready for up to 600 pounds of weight han­dling. When the door is closed again, it tucks back up nicely un­der the ve­hi­cle, which cleans up the over­all look.

The AMP Re­search Pow­erStep has an in­dus­try-lead­ing 5-year/60,000-mile war­ranty and is made in the U.S.A. Some of the fea­tures that make this run­ning board dif­fer­ent from oth­ers in­clude a low-pro­file, in­te­grated LED light sys­tem, main­te­nance­free self-lu­bri­cat­ing bush­ings for all-weather per­for­mance, pre­ci­sion stain­less-steel pivot pins for rock-solid sta­bil­ity, as well as weath­er­proof OEM-qual­ity elec­tric mo­tors, drive sys­tem, and wiring har­ness. Fol­low along with the in­stall and check out the web­site in the source box to pick up a set for your truck.

1. Our kit for this in­stal­la­tion in­cludes the run­ning board as­sem­blies, two mo­tor­ized link­ages for driver/pas­sen­ger sides, idler link­ages for each side, a wiring har­ness, STA con­troller, OBD II plug, four LED lamps, and all the mis­cel­la­neous hard­ware needed.
