  • AMP Research Power Steps

    Do you need steps for your Jeep Wrangler JK or JK Unlimited that won't interfere with your ground clearance? If so, you'll love AMP Research Power Steps. Traditional side rails or tube steps may hang too low and catch rocks and other obstacles on the trail. But AMP Research steps fold out when you need them, and fold up and away when you don't.

    amp-research-7512201a-jeep-wrangler-jk-powerstep-running-boards-jk-unlimited-steps-outEven stock Jeep JK's feature a higher stance than a typical passenger car. You have no choice but to step up on entry and step down on exit. This product gives you that extra wide step to make entry and exit more comfortable, especially for those who are not accustomed to a truck or SUV. These steps are great for those needing that extra foothold to enter or exit the vehicle, such as young children. 

    Amp-Research-Power-Step AMP Research Side Steps Are Fully Retractable

    The ability to fully retract these side steps makes them perfect for the family-oriented Wrangler JKU, where adding a vehicle lift could otherwise be impractical with small children or pets. Many owners also find that family members accustomed to passenger cars dislike high entry and exit points. These steps will mitigate that problem. Upon opening the door, the AMP Research step folds out (pictured above). The wide step provides a sturdy foothold. Once the door is shut, the AMP Research step retracts (pictured below).

    As you can see above, when the steps are fully retracted they fold neatly up to the pinch seam. These steps don't remain fixed, like a traditional tube step. This prevents it from snagging rocks or other obstacles on the trail. If you're looking for rocker protection, the AMP side steps can also hold up to moderate abuse off-road. This provides you with some protection for the pinch seam. However, we would not recommend this product for the dedicated off-road 'rig.' The step just won't hold up to repeated abuse while rock crawling.

    This product is perfect for stock and lifted Jeeps alike. Even stock, a Jeep JK features a higher stance than a typical passenger car. This requires a step up, rather than a step down, to enter the vehicle. The same holds true in reverse. To exit a Jeep, you climb down. On a car, you would simply stand up upon exit. This product provides that extra step to make entry and exit more comfortable for all, especially those who are not accustomed to a truck or SUV. The AMP Research step is great for those needing that extra foothold to enter or exit the vehicle, such as young children.

    AMP Research Side Steps Are Fully Retractable

    This makes the AMP Research side steps great for the family-oriented Wrangler JKU, where lifting a vehicle could make it impractical with small children or pets. Many owners find that family members accustomed to passenger cars also dislike high entry and exit points. These steps will mitigate that problem: upon opening the door, the AMP Research step will fold out (pictured above). The wide step provides a sturdy foothold, everyone climbs in, and the doors shut. Once the door is shut, the AMP Research step retracts (pictured below).
