Exclamation New Ford Transit Wagons with full length power step

Just picked up our new 2016 Ford Transit Wagon from the local upfitter with the AMP full length power step. Convinced our transportation department we needed to replace the 2012 Ford Econolines with these Transit Wagons. Then had our local upfitter order the full power step for the passenger side.

The step drops down when you open the passenger door or the side cargo door. Tested out today with 5 runs to various auto dealerships and all passengers were pleased with the step.

If you are in the DFW area, Truxx Outfitters is stocking these full length power steps. They also carry the ionic stationary running boards with the 39"/39" front driver/passenger boards or the 39" driver/100" passenger boards. You can see other accessories at their website, www.TruxxOutfitters.com

Talk to Mike Wills at Truxx Outfitters if you decide to make a trip to Lewisville, TX and have these running boards/power step installed on your Transit. If you come between now and October 22nd, you can leave your Transit for installation and ride the DCTA train and DART to the State Fair of Texas and enjoy the fair while your running boards/power step is installed.

Be sure to call ahead of time so he will have your running boards or power step ready and scheduled for installation. They are located at 708 Valley Ridge Circle, Suite #11 , Lewisville, TX 75057, phone 888 250-4844. Reference ED at Metro Auto Auction so he knows you are using the same products used on our Transits

Any idea if the Ionic running boards fit the 2017 without issue?

No change in the installation on the Ionic running boards. Can only use the 39" on the passenger side for the 130" WB Transit. If you try to use the 100", it may have to be trimmed down to fit properly.

Thanks, I ordered the 148" WB, so it should be good. Just worried that the mounting holes may have changed.

Still having good luck with the AMP power running boards. No problems so far. Using them daily with lots of loading and unloading of drivers to dealerships around the DFW Metroplex.
