    So, do they make the plug and play for the 18 yet, or is it still the wire splice.

    No, they don’t plan to either.

    I just finished the install of my AMP Research powersteps on my 2019 TRD Sport. This thread was exactly what I needed. After reading through the instructions several times, coming here and seeing the pics posted really helped a lot. Everything was wired and working perfect the first time. Installation would have been faster, but I had to remove the steps that came from the factory first. I'd post pics, but it's there's not enough light.

    Thinking about doing this myself on my '19. Glad to hear the install went well. Love to see some pics.

    Those are the wire taps I use and ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM! The other old style have damaged many a wiring harness on vehicles throughout the years.

    I installed mine last week and everything had to be spliced in as far as wiring my 2019 trd pro, but what i found out when i first put everything together the driver side wouldn’t work but what i did to correct it and recommend is before you even install the motor for the boards to the truck is connect it to the bracket then power it up and the motor should go into the closed position when door is shut and it should open when door is open, then i pulled the fuse when open and installed it. I learned the hard way when the instructions said to install motor to bracket and then to the truck and the motor was already in the closed position that’s why it wouldn’t work when i opened the door. hopefully this helps also the wiring is correct that amp sent

    Haha. Well that's about as not local as it gets for me. LMK if you have a price you'd be willing to ship.

    Just make sure you constantly keep the brackets lubricated. Had lots of trouble with mine not closing fully and there is very little room to adjust them so they don't bind. They are also noisy. That being said, mine is a 2014 and I don't know if maybe the design has improved. I ended up ditching mine for NFab rock rails with steps. Much happier.

    Yeah mine are from 2009 and are a bit noisy, but it doesn't bother me and I keep them lubed. I think the newer ones use a different motor and are quieter. My Father in Law has some and they are a lot quieter and the motor looks different.

    I had a set on my 2010 from the day i bought it in 2010 until i traded it for my 2018 and they performed perfectly, never bound. The key like anything you want to keep in great shape is to make sure they are clean.
