FAQ — Powerstep Plug and Play


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.

Installation and Shipping Information on the AMP Research PowerStep Plug and Play for a 2016 Silverado, 3500 HD

Silverado Owner: Hi, I got a quote for your AMP PowerStep plug and play and I'm wondering how you guys get them and are able to sell them for so much under their MSRP, I guess?

Peter: We deal directly with the manufacturer so we have special relationships with them. And we do a ton of volume. So, you know, we can do special pricing that other people can't offer.

Silverado Owner: Right. And then do you guys also offer the same warranty, all that type of stuff?

Peter: Yes, it's still the manufacturer warranty that five year, 60000 miles, yes.

Silverado Owner: Right. All right. And then, where are you guys located?

Silverado Owner: And then one more question, with those plug in play steps on the 2016 3500 HD do you have to do any sort of modification to install them?

Peter: No. No, that's a standard install on those.

Silverado Owner: Okay. So I could do it with some basic tools in the garage there.

Peter: Yes, absolutely.

Silverado Owner: Right. Okay. And I was reading it plugs into the OBD port?

Peter: It does. Yes, so they don't have to be hardwired or anything like that. It's pretty straightforward.
