Amp Research Power Steps

Who here has Amp Research power steps on there truck? I am looking for some measurements. When opened, what is the distance from the top of the step to the door seal or bottom edge of the truck? Also, if you have the 2" extension, does the step still fold to be flush with the truck, or does it stick out more?

I am looking into how much lift I can put on my truck without going beyond what's comfortable for a DD.

I have them on my 11" lift and no extension and they are perfect...but I am 6'4"...the 2" extension is good for bigger lifts but it will not sit flat against the truck...it sits 2" down

Thanks DunesRunner08. Could you measure how far down the step comes when they are fully extended? Like from the top of the step to the bottom of the cab? I am 5'10" and considering about 10" of lift and ~40's similar to your setup, but thinking that may be a tad high for my heavy self, lol.

I have the 2" extentions on my truck with just the 2 1/2" leveling kit, and mine go up flush with the truck when they are retracted. I have a prosthetic leg and they make it very easy to get into the truck.

Nice truck Fenwick. I checked out your gallery and while they do hang a little lower, they don't stick out like I thought they might.

It says it's 13.5" from top of door sill to top of deployed step.

I did the Kodiak Sidewinder Eletric Steps and they work get and they come down 8 inches but can be bought in longer lengths if needed

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

the problem with the Kodiak steps is they use plastic gears and they break a alot....you always see them hanging off someone's truck where they didn't retract....but I do like them.....the AMP steps are very expensive and yes they are hard to wire in properly but its well worth it when it is done
