I'm a firm believer in buying AMP Research...I will have them on every truck moving forward.

The amp steps are nice. My personal belief though is I like side steps / running board which are heavy, stiff, and mounted to the frame. Call me paranoid, but my grandfather had his legs saved by a set of frame mounted tube steps when he got t-boned by a car in his f-150. May not seem like much, but Iíve noticed less intrusion into the passenger compartment with frame mounted steps. Iíve not seen any broadside impacts yet with amp steps, so I canít say whether they hold up better or worse. But I can say frame mounted steps hold up WAY better than steps mounted to the pinch weld in a crash.

Everybody who drives a truck at my office (coroner) and all the folks I know at EMS and FD with trucks either buy it with them already on it, or we get them installed in short order. Obviously salary is crap so comparatively few of us have power steps...

Amp steps, N-fab, RBP make a few good ones for sure.

Any recommendations for frame mount side steps ? I have air tanks and air dog in the way, cant do most steps including the AMP steps.

thanks in advance,

most of the ones i've seen frame mounted are either factory accessories or tough country style round or oval tubes with sealed ends.

this might be a function of the vehicle as much as the steps, but the tough country ones for DRW trucks (the ones with a sheet of diamond plate on top) seem pretty darn sturdy. saw a set of those that folded a compact sedan darn near in half and the driver of the truck walked (well, ok, hobbled) away with just a broken ankle from a 60+ mph t-bone impact. maybe 6" of passenger compartment intrusion on the truck, and it was a 2wd so the car basically impacted the bottom half of the driver door almost on center.

I searched for a long time for frame mount running boards. They are very hard to find. Only 1 company made them in only a couple styles. They were more of a rock slider than a side step. Ended up having a guy weld me up some custom steps. Find yourself a local fab\welding shop and see what they can do. Mine used 2 plates sandwiching the frame using bolts. Super sturdy.

That said I do have some wheel to wheel chrome steps for sale if you decide to go that direction. And depending on your location.
