AMP Research makes innovative accessories for trucks, Jeeps, and SUVs. They don’t make Chinese knockoffs. They do the hard work of research and development themselves. Others then try to emulate, but there’s nothing like buying the quality part from the folks that put all the engineering to build it correctly.
Anyone can be a copycat. It takes hard work, determination, and perseverance to be a leading edge innovator like AMP Research, our Brand of the Week.
SIMPLE = HARD
Part common sense, part mechanical marvel, an AMP Research invention tends to be one of those ‘why didn’t I think of that?’ Ideas that seem like total no-brainers. In fact, it’s the simple solution to complex problems that have eluded Mankind throughout history, and are the hardest answers to think up. Finding the simple, functional solution to a complex design challenge is the goal of every AMP Research innovation. As Albert Einstein said, “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”
Thomas Edison remarked that invention is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. But before there’s either, there’s observation. The eyes of everyone at AMP Research are trained to look at everyday life, and envision new products that prove themselves in the marketplace.
AMP Research is a problem-solving resource to the automotive industry with an environment created to nurture innovative thinking. The AMP Research Process:
1. Define needs
2. Assume nothing
3. Less is more
4. Use and abuse
AMP Research isn’t just a design, development and engineering center. This 55,000 square foot facility located in Tustin, California, employs flexible manufacturing and assembly lines to produce AMP products for both automotive OEM and aftermarket customers.

We love the power running board feature. It provides your vehicle with a cleaner, more aerodynamic running board while driving. It also provides great ground clearance while driving. But once you open your door, the power running board slides out further and lower than a typical sidestep. This gives you more practical entrance and exit of your vehicle.

The Power Running boards are sexy, but sometimes you need to add just a small side step. AMP Research makes some of the best.
In addition to power running boards, side steps, and fuel doors, AMP Research also produces, high quality bed extenders for your pickup truck. Click to find one for your ride.
