Need advice on Powerboards

I am going to be getting rid of my stock running boards and replacing them with Powerboards. Just want advice on which one to go with? I see most people going with AMP but was wondering if anybody has put the Bestop Powerboards on and how do you like them? Is the quality as good as the AMP powerboards appears to be? Also looking for a dealer with good prices.

The AMP's without a doubt better and made in the US. Bestop copied most of the design but cheapened up the parts.

We sell them for the same price that everyone else should be at as AMP has a strict price policy.

Amp does have a better warranty and probably a better product... That being said, the Bestop boards can be $900ish after their $100 warranty. I think e-trailer.com has them the cheapest.

Set price or not, a local place advertises on craigslist for $1000 Amp boards.


edit/// Looks like the price went up a bit.

AMP - AMP - AMP!
Amazing product. I actually had Bestop's bed step and traded up to AMPs after doing a buddies. So much nicer
I just put AMP Powersteps on my Super Duty. Awesome...

Check out The Blink Project | Reviews, installations, Photography, and more. I uploaded a full installation video of how the steps are installed.

even better.. here is a link..

I had the Bestops on my 11 F350, they sucked after 6 months.

I have AMP on the new one and they're great so far.
