AMP RESEARCH POWERSTEP™ – INVENTING THE POWER-DEPLOYING RUNNING BOARD

The AMP Research PowerStep™ provides a running-board/retractable truck step utilizing a patented, kinematically-engineered linkage and electric motor. 

 

 The AMP Research PowerStep™ extends when any vehicle door is opened, and retracts under the vehicle, for added ground clearance and reduced aerodynamic drag, when the doors are closed. By 2010, over 30,000 PowerStep systems had been sold, both as line-installed OEM components on Ford and GM vehicles and through multi-step distribution in the automotive aftermarket under the AMP Research brand.

 

AMP RESEARCH BEDSTEP® and BEDSTEP2™

To make climbing into the bed of a pickup easier, Leitner invented the BedStep®, a clever retractable truck step mounted to the bumper/frame attachments at the rear corner of the vehicle that can be extended down with the flip of a toe to facilitate climbing up into or down from the pickup bed, and which retracts under the rear bumper, nearly out of sight, after use.
In Mid-2011, AMP Research began shipping BedStep2™, new side-access steps for pickup truck beds that mounts on either side, just behind the cab. providing a faster, easier and safer route to access toolboxes, equipment and cargo in the bed.
