What will you be putting them on? I've talked to AMP Research and they say they will fit my Summit with with a little modification, but their fitment says the will only fit up through the Overland, and won't fit Summit's or HA's.

I did this style on my '11 Overland. They are AWESOME. This was the second set of boards I tried, and they are quality build and rock solid, BUT they won't match up with the moldings on a Summit or I'd buy them again.

Please post pictures of the power boards when you get them. I'm just about ready to pull the trigger.

I wish I had a summit or high altitude. I'm putting them on a 2015 limited. I'll post pictures as soon as they are installed.

I'm hoping this Friday is the day. I ordered them over a month ago and they've delayed delivery twice and rescheduled the install on me twice already bc they AMP delayed the shipment.

Re: Powered Side Step for WK2?

Did you get the extra OB-II pass through harness? How long was your install? Any issues? Thanks - Mike

No I skipped that figured they can unplug it when they need to run a diagnostic. Install was about 5 hours

Re: Powered Side Step for WK2?

Only thing to be aware of is that it sits flush I'm the front and mid but in the back it's like 1/2 inch of a gap bc the back is slightly higher than the front of the Jeep. It's a little annoying but only something you will notice not something anyone else would. Kinda like when you dent or scratch your car you see it every day but other people will never notice it. So far I couldn't be happier.
