What?
I have been watching the AMP site for months each day.
Where did you purchase. Please share.
I purchased mine as a dealer add on accessory in November when I purchased the truck. They arrived at the dealer on March 20th. They were just able to Install them today!

How was the install? Been waiting for mine for a few months now. Hopefully they’ll show up some day.
I had the dealer install them.

Could you post some more photos? Looking for another side shot. Thank you.
These are what I have for now. If you want to see something else shoot me a message and I’ll be happy to get one for you.

While I wait for them to offer for sale to common people, what I would like is more details on is regarding Install. I have read the instructions, but they are vague on wire routing. I asked since they have time would they add to the instructions (asked in December).

Where is the hole drilled on driver side for wiring?
Where did the wires get attached and run under the truck. How do they run in the engine and any Wiring hook up point pictures. All of this would be great. No rush as sounds like public sales are 2 weeks out unless they reply to my email with your their info. Hard to give people money. One would think in these times they would roll out the red carpet. Thanks.

I have been waiting for the release of these PowerSteps as well. The website currently states: "Out of Stock"?

After seeing the photo's on DAWGSLAW (BTW - Sweet Truck!) I'm surprised that the step is up so far up on the lower rocker in the closed position? Maybe that is adjustable via the mounting brackets?

Here is a pretty comprehensive install video on an F150:

You'll notice how far under the rocker the actual step sits after full deployment/closed. (sure its a F150, but the side rockers are pretty similar?)

My understanding is these steps are supposed to nearly retract completely under the lower rocker?

Am I mistaken?

The last vehicles I owned, (F-250 & F-150) the AMP power steps retracted underneath and mostly out of sight. It seems the ranger AMP power steps are more visible while retracted (which could be a good thing to deflect road debris), but I personally think they show too much and look a little out of place while retracted. Maybe seeing them in person will change my mind.

Will do.
I printed a new copy of installation paperwork from their site. I had asked a few konths back if they would update and add more details on wiring. Since they had time with delay in release. Will check and compare to an older copy.
