My friend's Ford Limited has OEM power steps and it has broken twice so far during last winter. Fortunately, the dealer covered it under warrantee. But the dealer said they won't do any more replacements.
I live on Long Island in NY...temps don't get too bad, nothing like when I lived in Chicago for two years back on 06-08.
I was getting the OEM steps (not power ones), but I decided to go with the AMP powersteps inside. Are there OEM motorized ones available from Dodge/Mopar?
