Do the AMP Research Power Steps Require an Override Switch?

Tonneau Covered Customer: Hey Peter, can you give me price and availability of AMP running boards, part number 75142-01A?

Peter: Okay. Let me take a look here. Okay. Yeah, these would have to drop ship from the manufacturer. Price on them, I've got, let's see. I just emailed you a price quote, but it would probably take about two weeks to receive them.

Tonneau Covered Customer: Okay. Now, is there any shipping charge?

Peter: No. It's free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

Tonneau Covered Customer: Okay. And now, does it also require, like an override switch? And also, is there a wire harness that you need over and above the wiring that they give you?

Peter: No. It comes with everything you're going to need to get these in.

Tonneau Covered Customer: Okay. What about the override switch though?

Peter: It doesn't require it. Let me see. I'm not even sure if we carry the switches anymore. Let me double check here. Yeah, we do not carry the switches anymore.

Tonneau Covered Customer: Okay. What does that switch actually do?

Peter: So the manual override switch basically makes it where if you didn't want them to deploy for whatever reason you could still open your door without having them deploy.

Tonneau Covered Customer: Okay. Because otherwise, every time you open the door the running board is going to come down, right?

Peter: That's right.

Tonneau Covered Customer: Okay, let me get back to you on these.

Peter: Okay. Sounds good. Thanks a lot.

What's The Difference Between the Standard & Xtreme AMP Research Power Steps for a 2018 Chevy Silverado?

Silverado Owner: I'm interested in some AMP Research steps. I was looking at here the standard model or the Xtreme. I just wanted to know what the difference was as far as material and the product in general, and then also is there a difference in the warranty between the two?

Shawn: Let's see here. What kind of truck is it going on?

Silverado Owner: 2018 Silverado. Crew cab.

Shawn: So the Plug-N-Play and the Xtreme...

Silverado Owner: Yeah. I would just do the standard installment not the Plug-N-Play. I want it hard wired.

Shawn: I'm looking here. So they give you a 5 year sixty thousand mile warranty, 3 year thirty six thousand mile warranty. Let me look at the Xtreme and see what they say.

Silverado Owner: Okay. I thought it said 3 year but then I saw 5 years.

Shawn: 3 year warranty. Hold on. 5 year sixty thousand miles. All defects on the materials or workmanship on select AMP products properly installed per provided instructions except those listed under the 3 year warranty ... it's not really clear on which one it is.

Silverado Owner: Right. Okay. I just got to decide then what's the difference between the Xtreme and the other. Is it a stronger motor is it a different material? You know, those types of things. It doesn't really go into detail on their website.

Shawn: The Xtreme ... let's see here. I know its heavier duty.

Silverado Owner: Okay. As far as the mounting, it mounts the same way? Not like the LX where it has that rocker panel cover?

Shawn: Correct.

Silverado Owner: Okay. So it mounts like the standard one?

Shawn: Right. I should know this off the top of my head. I do apologize.

Silverado Owner: That's okay. Not a problem.

Shawn: Dual motor option. And then yeah, its just heavier duty. The ends are heavier duty, the track itself has more grip to it, the step itself.

Silverado Owner: That's probably the better way to go then.

Shawn: Yeah. I would say. All weather functioning, hard working constructions for superb traction. Let me see if my supplier has them. I don't know if you're ready or not but let me see if they have them just so you know and I know ... and they would be on back order of course.

Silverado Owner: Yeah. Why don't we get those ordered up. Can you send me an email so I can check out when I get home?

Shawn: Absolutely.

Are the AMP PowerSteps for a 2018 Dodge Ram 3500 Easy to Install?

Dodge Ram Owner: Good. We emailed a while back on some side steps, the AMP PowerSteps for a 2018 Dodge.

Peter: Okay. Gotcha. Was it a Ram 1500?

Dodge Ram Owner: It's a 3500. The quad cab. You had sent me a quote out but then sent me a follow-up email that said the quote would expire.

Peter: Okay. We've maintained the same price on these for a while now, so I can still honor that. It's also free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

Dodge Ram Owner: Perfect. That'll work great! Do you want me to just call you and give you a card number or order online?

Peter: It's up to you. I can either email you a link to check out online at your convenience or you can call in with a card. It's up to you.

Dodge Ram Owner: What's your shipping time on those power steps?

Peter: It's quick. We stock them. You'd receive them like two or three days at the most from when you ordered them.

Dodge Ram Owner: Are they tough to put on?

Peter: No. They're the plug and play so it's pretty straightforward.

Dodge Ram Owner: Basically one cable goes into the cab and plugs right into the OBD-II port?

Peter: Exactly.

Dodge Ram Owner: Got it. Sounds good. Okay, sounds good. I'll give you a call probably a little bit later today.

Peter: Okay, sounds good.

Dodge Ram Owner: Okay. Push me that link again would you? Just in case I don't get a chance to do it until tomorrow and I can get it ordered online.

Peter: Okay. I will shoot this over in the next couple of minutes.

Dodge Ram Owner: I appreciate you. Thank you.
