  1. High temp paint should work but since they are chrome, you need a primer that works on chrome. Otherwise the paint will peal from the chrome. But you can always repaint as needed. Taking them off is easy. I replaced mine with powder coated ones. Looks so much better black. Good luck with painting.
  2. Traded my 2018 2500 Duramax due to a battery constantly discharging. Dealer could not determine how to fix it. It started at about 4000 miles. After having it towed from my driveway the third time, it had to go. I loved that truck but had no trust it would start when I turned the key. I have been researching and read somewhere that sometimes the Body Control Module, BCM, does not shut-down and it can drain the battery in 2-3 days. Not sure if this was my problem, but may be worth asking for yours. Good luck!
  3. Check YouTude, couple of videos showing how to take it apart. I had to take my apart to install the autostop eliminator.
  4. I used the last set of holes for my install and the Amp rotating arm did hit the frame brace on both sides. My only other set was 30 inches away and looks terrible. Used a dremel and cut an angled piece off of the brace and now it clears by about 1/8 inch. When they touched, they would transmit noise into the truck when driving slow. Since trimming, nice and quiet. Love the Amp steps.
  5. I did not get the second set of holes either so mine are positioned on the last set. I do like them there as I also like the symmetry of the front to back positioning. That bracket is the one I cut a triangle piece off of and now have a nice gap between the rotating bracket and the steel support piece. Mine still made noise once in a while and when checking, my steps were barely touching the truck in the rear. I loosen the bolts on the motor bracket and added a 1/8 inch shim between the bracket and the truck, so now nothing touches and nice and quiet.
  6. Both sides on mine hit the frame brace so I cut a little off of the corner of the brace and no more touching. They do clunk when going up but the ones on my Tacoma make the same sound. Before cutting a piece off there was a mechanical sound when driving slowly over bumps. That sound has disappeared since trimming the mount and no further contact between steps and brace. Love the Amp Steps and love the no-step look when raised,
  7. AKinlaw Any link to the Ebay seller where you got the tips powder coated? Did you supply the tips or did they do it all? My truck is same color and love have they look.
