Re: Amp research power steps installed

That's awesome. Did you install? Where did it tap?

It's a bit too short for the rear in the video. I'm concerned my kids won't be able to use it as intended. Can you clarify. Thanks.

Nice. Any chance of some clearance pics? They seem to offer a proper step without stealing too much air from under the car.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Amp research power steps installed

I installed it...it was easy but I took my time so about 5 hours.

Power and ground from the fuse box, run two wires inside the cabin and connect to the OBD2 port connector and that's it for tapping in.

The rear of the steps are kind of short. They can be adjusted to slide forward or back ward. The instructions actually called for them to be further back 2 inches but I didn't like how they fit up against the cladding so I moved them forward. They definitely make it easier to get into the the rear even though it looks like a short step.

Re: Amp research power steps installed
