Amp Powerstep / mudguard compatability

Amp Powerstep / mudguard compatability

Postby melmark [OP] » May 06 2021, 7:59pm

Considering pulling the trigger on a set of plug and play AMP powerstep running boards on my 2014 Silverado LT crewcab. First off I currently have mudguards, mudflaps as shown in the pics. I am wondering if anyone can tell me if I can retain these with the powersteps? I would prefer to keep them on if possible. Secondly , it looks like the going price for the running boards is around $1,400. Does anyone know of any better deals from reliable sellers?

Thanks
Mark

They’re 79” long. Not an issue with mudflaps. Have both myself.

Check with Electric Step. They’ll know the dealers in your area...who might have some type of promo/special going on.

Otherwise they’re not too difficult to instal yourself. Ruining the wiring is the PITA.

They won't interfere, as said...and, you have latitude to adjust them fore and aft.
As far as cheaper......difficult.....You can lurk FB Marketplace for a deal as I got, ($725 in the box,) but that was an unusual circumstance.
If you take the wires along the firewall, down behind the left wheel well, thru the plastic "raceway" within the frame, (the most difficult part of the job,) and thru the grommet just in front of the driver's seat where the brake cable is, you're golden.

The entire installation took me about 2.5 hours, without even jacking the truck up.

As everybody mentioned, you can keep the mudflaps since there is enough adjustability. The installation is easy enough to do yourself (with a friend makes things a tad bit easier but not necessary) and I was able to do my installation in about 2 - 2.5 hours as well on night after work. I'd also suggest keeping an eye on Amazon, because I picked my set up for $1,150 but I see them around $1300 all the time.

They finally came down a little in price to $1,315. I ordered a set as well as the pass through for the OBD so I can run my range device......can't wait!

Cool!

One tip; put a little rust protection and/or anti-seize on all the bolts. The little M8’s hold the steps to the arms get the worst of it. I live in a frozen saline bath half the year so when I went to replace the original boards with the new ones, half of those little guys snapped off.

Well I'm late to this thread (lol) but just to verify what everybody else is saying -- I have had them on my 2015 for over 5 years now without any problems:
    * They fit perfectly even with front mudflaps (I have the Husky molded ones).
    * They are easy to install now that they come with the plug-n-play setup.
    * I have not had any problems with them over 5 winters (I am also in PA!) -- just keep the joints cleaned and lubed with some silicone spray.
    * You will love the pass-thru harness. It plugs in to allow you to add your other OBD items and the bracket screws right into the factory location under the steering wheel.
