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?
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?
Where Can I Get the Best Deal on AMP Research Powersteps Xtreme for a 2019 Ford F350?
F-350 Owner: I got a quote on some AMP Research Powersteps and I want to order them, please. You guys have the best deal on the Powersteps I've seen compared to anywhere else.
Shawn: Beautiful, give me one second here. Those have been a little popular today. What kind of truck do you have?
F-350 Owner: It's a 2019 Ford F350, super cab, eight foot bed.
Shawn: Alright, and which ones were you looking at? The Plug-and-Play?
F-350 Owner: It's the Powerstep Xtreme. I've even got a part number for it. Somewhere I have the part number for it. 78235-01A. Is that what you've got?
Shawn: That is what I show.
F-350 Owner: Okay, and then I'm also considering an OBD2 splitter for that which is a 76404-01A.
Shawn: And then the steps. Here I got the price on those, those are the Xtremes, I am going to honest with you I'm looking at my supplier and they don't have them. But, I just got off the phone with AMP today, and there should be another shipment going to them this week yet, so I assume that since they're not showing stock that they should be on order at least.
F-350 Owner: I'm not in a hurry. I don't mind putting them on backorder.
Shawn: So that's the steps, that's the OBD connector, was there anything else that you were looking for?
F-350 Owner: Nope. Just the steps and the OBD connector.
Shawn: Okay. I'll get those on order and chances are you're going to see that ODB connector a week and a half before you see your steps. But, they'll both be on their way.
