Most Helpful Customer Reviews
In my research, I found a variety of different types of tailgate steps in a large span of price ranges. However, my criteria limited my choices to only a few. I am in and out of the bed of my truck 15 or 20 times a week and at 67 I was recently diagnosed with a fairly painful case of Osteoarthritis of the knee, (I thought only old folks got that). My doctor sternly wagged his finger at me when I told him how I exited my truck bed and he reminded me that I was not a basketball player. Although I am retired, I use my truck a lot for volunteer work and haul anything from furniture to topsoil and stone (thank God for the "Loadhandler"). Mostly it's boxes of food for the local Food Bank. The truck often gets filled to capacity so I didn't want a tailgate step that intruded into the bed. The convert-a-ball tailgate step quickly detaches from the base so the tailgate can close even when the bed is full. I also have a vinyl tonneau cover with gas shocks lift. The tailgate step had to install...
Makes it a lot easier to get in and out of the bed
Poorly made: the paint is uneven, and the punched-out base plates are cut asymmetrically. Sloppy. Looks like a home-made job. Will not fit if you have a tonneau cover. Flexes badly when you use it. Tip: I riveted mine to the tail-gate, and suggest you do the same.
