A client from New Philadelphia brought her 2016 Chevy Silverado to Mobile Edge in Lehighton in search of new side steps. Her husband was having hip problems and needed a way to get in and out of this big vehicle easily. We looked at the truck and quickly realized the tubular steps, although they looked great, didn’t really offer any help. We suggested a set of Powersteps.
We have Amp Research Powersteps motorized running boards on our shop demo truck. We showed her how they worked and she loved the idea. We suggested the PowerStep XL to provide an extra 3 inches needed to deal with the 6-inch lift on the truck.
We removed the tubular steps and installed the new motorized running boards. We ran all the wiring safely into the cab and made our electrical connections. We tested the system thoroughly from all doors to ensure it would operate flawlessly.
The client was thrilled with her choice of steps. They extend down nicely when the doors are open, then instantly retract up tight to the body when they close.
