I had a custom fab shop do it. They do 4-5 complete installs per day due to agreements with local dealerships. I guess a ton of people are buying lower optioned vehicles and doing Katzkin. The quality, to me, seems to be as good if not better than OEM. The only thing they didnt do was the center console lid. They said they couldn't figure out out to get it off. I think they must just leave it trimmed in black leather because most people install OEM colors, so being as mine was different they didn't do. My neighbor (an auto interior refurb business owner) did it.
You really don’t see the logo at all on the RBPs and no one would even notice the wires for the few seconds the doors are open. The install wasn’t bad at all. So far I love them. Tech support was super helpful as well.
The RBP ones use small strong magnets on the doors and door sills to trigger deployment. The RBPs also have 2 motors per side and I think the warranty is better than AMPs.
Check out the RBP Stealth Power Steps. I installed them on my 2019 RST with a 7” lift. I think they sit closer to the rocker rail than the AMPs. I was asked to do a video of them here: Apologies for the quality..my first video. Also..I’m getting Katzkin’d on Wednesday and should have a video up soon after.

Build Date 11/18 RST Crew Cab just found the rear window leak on the driver's side. Have appt with my local dealer tomorrow morning. Bought the truck slightly used at the end of May, and it's sat in my garage since because I'm working from home. I came across this thread and decided to test it out.
I got them off americantrucks.com. I don’t know about the AMP steps but on these all it would take is to interfere with one magnet on each side. Either remove it or maybe placing another small magnet over the door magnets would work. These do have a bypass switch that allows you to turn them off but they retract and stay there in the off position.
Finally got around to selling my rough country nerf steps and installing the RBP Stealth Power Steps on my lifted 2019 RST/Z71 Crew Cab. Really, the only semi tough part of the install is removing the B pillar trims to install the door sensors. I chose this set instead of the AMP Research because it has two motors per side, doesn't tie up my OBD port, and comes with a 5 year warranty versus AMP 3 year. Also, they were $100 cheaper. So far, I love them!
SOLD! Would prefer local sale to Dallas/Fort Worth. In like new condition. Only been on truck for 3 months, 2 of which were sitting on the dealer lot. These retail for $350 plus tax.
I've had this 2019 RST/Z71 in Shadow Gray Metallic for about 2 weeks now. Only had 9,500 miles on it. Lift and tires were done by the dealer. I'm planning to remove the steps and do powered steps, a BAK Revolver X4 tonneau cover, and Katzkin leather. The steps will be done in about a month.
