Robot Check
I was looking at the AMP PowerStep product and even though it seems to have the lowest drop available (outside of a custom-manufactured product), it still only drops about 2-inches lower than my OEM step bars. Yes, I can go with the extensions, which will give me an additional 3-inches, but then the step bar would be visible and I'm trying to go for the "hidden" look. Does anyone know of any other powered-retractable product out there that would drop lower (short of telling the wife to bring her stepladder with her )? Thanx again.

That's exactly what I did - went with the blocks for now. I figure later on I can upgrade the rear springs.
