2013 F250 Amp Research Powersteps...

Hey Guys,

I did a search on the entire forum regarding the amp powersteps and found some article from 2010. I also did a search on the 6.7 forum and didn't really find anything useful.

I was wondering if we have a hook up on getting these at a good price? Yes, good is relative as they are expensive.

Any info would be much appreciated.

I have thought about them but I like my rugged Ford factory steps that I have on my truck now.

Luck of the draw I guess. I've had mine on two trucks over 5 plus years now without a single issue. Sorry to hear you've had such bad luck.

I had a set on my old duramax forever with no problems. Did you get the bestop steps or the amps? I've heard nothing but great things on AMP's customer service and warranty dept too.
