Amp Side steps

Does anyone run the Amp Electric side steps on their trucks? If so, is there a way to run them with a programmer hooked up to my OBDII port? While watching an instal video on YouTube it says they plug into my OBDII port.

I have a set and they didn't connect to the OBD port at all. Perhaps that has changed in an attempt to simplify the installation. If that's the case, I would give Amp Research a call and see if they can send you the older setup and instructions. It was still pretty easy.

I love the steps, but if I don't keep the moving parts clean and lubed, they tend to stick (not retract all the way). It was never much of an issue when I drove my truck back in the city, but now that I live off of a dirt road and do a lot of wheeling, it's a pretty regular issue. That's my only complaint. They are still worth every penny.

It's a pain to take and post pics to this site, but I may be able to do it later. They look the same as any pic you find on their website or the internet.
