Now you see it, now you don't. The Power Step is the first fully automated running board available on the market. It's triggered by an electronic signal from the vehicle's factory door sensors and extends to a convenient stepping height in about a second. Powered by an encased motor that is mounted easily under the vehicle, Power Step is lowered when any doors is opened. A closed door automatically retracts the running board, and on most applications, it tucks neatly behind the vehicles OEM rocker panel.
