Traditional hitch steps work wonders when you need a boost into your payload or up to your roof. But, they're completely useless as soon as you lower your tailgate. When you equip your rig with the HitchMate TruckStep, your step is always ready to lend a hand. This retractable truck step slides out a full 23.5" (Standard) or 31" (XL) to clear your open tailgate and give you a leg up anytime you need it.
Built to be as rugged and dependable as your rig, the HitchMate TruckStep is constructed from heavy-duty steel and finished with a rust-repellent zinc plating. It's got enough backbone to support up to 500 lbs even when fully extended. What's more, the step pad sports an anti-slip rubber pad, giving you sure footing even if your boots are caked in mud and crud. And, the step flips up and sits flush with your bumper when you're not using your trailer hitch step.
Best of all, the HitchMate TruckStep mounts to any 2" receiver hitch. Got more than one vehicle? This truck hitch step is easy to slip on and take off, so it's simple to swap between vehicles. And, it's backed by a limited Lifetime Warranty.
- The Standard TruckStep may not be able to retract if you have an undercarriage-mounted spare tire. The TruckStep XL offers more clearance for under-mounted spare tires.

It works great and is very sturdy. I purchased two and use them in my camper tie down hitches on both sides of the truck to reach items in the truck when camper is not on. Works great.

I have used this several times since purchasing and have not found anything to complain about. I am 6' 5" tall and break the scales at over 300 pounds. I can say that, even extended for use with tailgate open, the Hitchmate step is very very sturdy. The "oversized" step makes you feel confident and balanced not like teetering on a peg. I leave it in the receiver for the convenience of it being there when needed and use it as a hitch cover at the same time. I would recommend it.

Found it a little stiff at first to raise and lower the step. Do like the way it operates both with the gate closed and open. I wish the step which fits the left rear and lowers and raises out of the way had been available for my pickup.
