A client from Tualatin, OR, contacted Kingpin Car and Marine Audio about installing a set of motorized steps on the 2017 Mercedes-Benz G63 she wanted to buy. She loved the truck, but needed a way to make getting in and out much easier. We did some research and made a proposal to install a set of motorized steps. She liked the plan, so we scheduled an installation.
We ordered a set of steps from a company called Amp Research. They are the industry leader in motorized steps for pickup trucks and SUVs. Amp Research does not make a kit specifically for the Mercedes-Benz G63, so we made detailed measurements of the truck and worked with Amp Research to find a set of motorized steps that were the correct length for the vehicle.
To install the steps, we made custom brackets to locate the motor mechanism. We used heavy gauge 2×2-inch steel to ensure the steps would be secure and rock-solid.
With the doors closed, you can barely tell the steps are there. As soon as you open a door, they motorize down to make entry and exiting easy.
