Getting into your truck should not feel like climbing Mount Everest. that is 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. Ditto its industry-leading 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.

A bit better than the powerboard for the
I started with the Bestop Powerboard and switched to AMP. The AMP Power Step is much more attractive with its rounded design and the way it mounts it pulls up tighter to the Jeep. The Powerboard looks OK but doesn't pull in as tight to the side and tends to leave one end sagging a little. I did however like the way Powerboard had plug-in connectors for the LED lights where as the Power Step requires crimping, or in my case I soldered them. I don't think there is any defect with motors or other quality of parts issues with ether one. Motors are what they are and occasionally will fail, especially if the idler and motor linkages are not aligned properly and the motor is required to work harder. It appeared to me that Bestop perhaps took their truck product and modified it to fit a Jeep where AMP made more of an effort on their Jeep version. Also when my AMP Power Step arrived with one of the boards slightly dented I called support during installation and got a live body right away who then said they would ship a new one pronto. I haven't received it yet but that was just yesterday. Good customer support AMP!

MUST HAVE! LOOKS AND FUNCTION!
SOLID PRODUCT. EASY ENTRY/EXIT WITH 4" LIFT. HOLDS UP ON TRAILS AND MUD BOGGING. HASN'T CLOGGED OR JAMMED. WITH STOOD ROCKS AND TRAIL DAMAGE SO FAR BUT NOT INTENDED AS A ROCK SLIDER. MORE THAN WHAT I EXPECTED FOR A PRODUCT THAT LOOKS LIKE MORE "SHOW THAN GO"!

GREAT ADD ON WIFE VERY HAPPY
This was the one thing our new Sahara needed. At over 360 lb, there is no flex at all. Opens quickly and I think it looks better than the stock running boards when they are retracted.
I have a 2012 rubicon unlimited. Will these fit with the factory rock guards or will they need removed?

How will the rails work when I remove my doors? I have a 2013 jeep wrangler sahara unlimited, with 4" lift and 35" tires...

Thank you for asking. The only way to use these steps without doors is to hook up a toggle switch to lower and raise manually.
