    Does anyone know where I can buy the Amp Research running board cheaper than the $1200 you see all over the internet?

    No. I'm pretty sure AMP has a minimum price agreement with all of its vendors. Just installed mine this past weekend. You're gonna love 'em. Couple of hints; 1) If you have a DC, the AMP instructions say to cut about a foot off the boards. IMO this is completely unnecessary. I cut mine. felt it was too short, and ended up ordering an extra pair of replacement boards which I then installed, full length. 2) Amp supplies some cheesy little push pin thingies to attach the plastic motor covers. Just chuck them and use tie wraps instead.

    There's a seller on eBay who sells them for $700 - $800, without the light kit. I bought a set from him last night. He has good feedback. I'll let you know if everything is on the up and up when they arrive.

    I contacted him before the auction ended and asked him how he was able to sell these so cheap. He said they were from a supplier program that ended, and he was able to buy the entire inventory. He didn't elaborate, but I wonder if they came from a Bestop dealer?

    Thanks. I checked it out on eBay and they are already sold. That was a great price!

    The problem with Ebay is...is the seller an authorized AMP Research vendor/ dealer? Will Amp Research honor the warranty if something goes wrong? If I buy something new on Ebay and spend major $$$, I always verify with mfr first if I am covered.

    I bought that last set that I linked to. But the seller usually lists a new set a few days after a set sells. Just keep any eye out.

    Re: the warranty - I am gambling a bit on that point, and I'm okay with it, given that the price was about $400 cheaper than elsewhere. Given all the reviews I've read about the Amp Powersteps state that they are very well made, I don't expect to have any problems with them. In the event that I do, I would still try to get warranty assistance from Amp. If they refuse, there's not much I could do, other than pay for replacement parts out of pocket.

    Their products are good and you did save quite bit. More than enough to worry about possible warranty issues. You are still way ahead on this one. Good deal.

    That's quite a deal. Wonder how she's able to offer that pricing?

    The power steps that I purchased from eBay arrived yesterday. I installed them last night and I'm very happy to report that everything works like it's supposed to. For those who are interested, it took me about 3 hours to do the installation, and that was taking my time and being particular about where and how I routed the wires. Not a difficult job, at all - just time consuming.

    Right on! I ended up buy them at full price and I'm kicking myself for it now. They are really nice though. Enjoy.

    Are those from that e-bay deal, that were going for $800.00?
