    Hey guys looking for the best price on a set of these. Just stopped at a dealer to have my wife look at a similar truck we have on order and she had a very difficult time managing the height of the stock boards.
    Thank you!

    I bought mine through an amazon retailer for around $1250. Used them on my f250 now on my Raptor. Awesome steps. About split the difference with the ground on my Raptor.

    A little confusing to which is the best choice.

    I ran them on my 2014 Tremor. I got the plug and play kit and the pass thru harness. The pass thru harness has an extra OBD2 port so you don't have to unplug the steps to load a tune or plug in a scan tool for diagnostics.

    Just a FYI.

    Even with mudflaps, the trucks wide stance throws rocks up at the body and the original boards protect the body, good thing they are aluminum, steel would begin rusting much faster with how often they are hit.

    I wanted power boards but there is just no way I would do it now that I own a Raptor. My old FX4 did not have this problem because of its stance.

    After having the Amp Power Steps on my 2014 FX4 I thought I'd never own another truck without them. Soon after I bought my 2017 Raptor I realized that the Raptor running boards protect the sides of the truck. Also, I think Raptors look weird without (visible) running boards. I hate the look of running boards on other F150s that's why the Amps are great for non-Raptor F150s.

    Just ordered a set from Keith @ Autoplicity, 800-299-1028 ex7016, he saved me several hundred dollars over anyplace else, along with free shipping and -0- sales tax.

    I agree the Raptor boards "make" the look of the truck, but sometimes function over looks is the way to go.

    I bought mine from Autoplicity too. They had some member discounts on the f150forum.
