Add the ultimate touch of luxury to your pickup truck or sport utility vehicle powered running boards. Furthermore they extend outward when you need them. Then they retract out of sight underneath your vehicle when you don’t. AMP Research has engineered and built all fixed and moving PowerStep components to very high standards. Ford and General Motors offer these very powered running boards as an OEM factory option. They are perfect for 4×4 owners who need maximum ground clearance during off-roading.  AMP Research offers running boards sized to fit your make and model that achieve an OEM-quality fit.

Installing Powered Running Boards

Mounting brackets with a pivoting design fit easily onto vehicle body mount bolts or existing frame holes. A centralized control module is placed under hood for easy power connection to your vehicle’s battery. This comes complete with heavy grade wiring that runs through door ajar sensors, then through sill plates after drilling. The wiring connects easily to power motors that mount directly onto bracket ends and to LED lights that secure to the vehicle frame with the use of double-sided tape. To ensure moving parts do not become compromised by mud and grit buildup, motors and pivot points are sealed with internal lubrication – making them virtually maintenance-free. Hence running boards on each side can support up to 300 pounds and textured surfaces give maximum grip.

AMP Research also offers the Extension Arm Kit. This comes with four extension pieces that mount between the standard PowerStep mounting brackets. They are powered running boards to create a step height that’s two inches closer to the ground. The extension pieces fold out of the way when the boards retract. This maintains a side profile that is flush to the vehicle.  Furthermore this provides convenience for lifted trucks and passengers with difficulties climbing larger steps.

Becuase of their higher compression ratio diesel engines produce more torque than gas engines for a given displacement. Higher pressure in the cylinder and higher forces on the connecting rods and crankshaft require stronger, heavier components. Heavier rotating components prevent diesel engines from revving as high as gas engines. Diesel engines generally have similar power and inferior power to weight ratios.  This is compared to gas engines. Gas engines must be geared lower to get the same torque as a comparable diesel.   Because gas engines rev higher both will have similar acceleration. An arbitrary amount of torque at the wheels can be gained by gearing any power source down correctly.

Diesel Truck Repair

A diesel engine with a constant 200 ft.lbs of torque and a 3000 rpm rev limit has just as much power  as another theoretical engine with a constant maximum 100 ft.lbs of torque and a 6000 rpm rev limit. A  2 to 1 reduction gear on the second engine will output a constant maximum 200 foot pounds of torque.  This is at a maximum of 3000 rpm.  This is with no change in power. Comparing diesel engines based on torque is just as useful as comparing them based on rpm.
