AMP Research BedStep2 Installation

AMP Research Steps Get You into Your Truck Bed Easier

Let’s face it, accessing the toolbox or auxiliary fuel tank, disconnecting the fifth-wheel hitch, or simply reaching for items in the bed of a lifted truck is difficult if not impossible—unless you happen to be vertically blessed. At 6 foot 2 inches, I too struggle to get items out of the toolbox. Until now, there were few options to gain access for those hard-to-reach items: store a small step ladder in the bed of the truck or climb up onto the rear tire. The first option guaranteed laughs and jeers from friends, and the second offered a great opportunity to slip, leading to more ridicule. AMP Research came to the rescue with its BedStep2, a side-mounting truck step specifically designed to allow for easy access to the toolbox and other items in the front of the bed of the truck. Its ambidextrous attachment hardware allows the step to be installed on either side of the truck, just behind the cab.

The creative, hands-free operation of the retractable BedStep2 is ingenious. Minimal downward pressure on the step will get it to deploy, and when you’re finished, you simply kick it up and it stows out of the way—brilliant. The frame components of the step are die-cast aluminum alloy construction with precision stainless steel pivot pins and self-lubrication bushings. The composite step pad is designed to provide high traction and withstand the elements automotive products endure. The step will safely support up to 300 pounds. Should a part fail, the step is covered by a three-year 36,000-mile warranty. Best of all, the BedStep2 is made in the United States.

AMP Research has designed another sleek, stylish, functional, durable, and utilitarian accessory for the truck market, proving once again it is a step above the competition.
