Amp steps

Anyone running these steps and not like them? Also, how would you wire them up to work with the doors off? Hook up to s-pod?

I am running the AMP steps on my 2007. The Sahara steps were too high for my wife (pregnant at the time) to get in the Jeep with 4" and 35's. I can open the door and my 4 year old daughter can climb in with ease and get to her car seat. They are pretty strong to stand on if you have the clean the windshield as well as putting the soft top down. I do not remove my doors from my JK, but I am sure you could put them on a switch. I put them on one night after work and it took me all of the 3 hours that they call for on the install. The only thing I did not take time doing was getting my door lights to stay/stick properly. Overall, I am very satisfied with the product that AMP built for the JK.

I have had some on my pick-up truck since 2007. Both motors were replace in the first year. No problems since then, I love them on the truck. They would not work for me on the Jeep. To many times on the trail, I stop to get out of the Jeep and there is not enough ground clearance for the step to drop down. I would think they would be damaged trying to drop down on rocks, or tree stumps when the door opens.

Would it be possible to have it work off of a switch to avoid those situations? I picked up a s-pod and trying to make it creative and different than others. So far it is all based on that my wife's best friend could hardly get in the jeep in stock form while being preggo and thinking that when we do start a family this could be a cool upgrade. Decisions decisions.

I don't have any experience with these steps, but I am guessing you could probably put a switch in line with the signal wire so that you could disable them when need be.

That's what I'm thinking. I'm not an electrical guy but I'm hoping I can get it wired to work with doors on(as normally intended) and with doors off using a switch.

I have not had any motor problems. They do offer a very nice 5 year warranty on them to boot. If you do drive on dirt/muddy roads you will want to be sure to clean where the motors/arms are to allow for best performance. When my wife was pregnant they helped out very well.
