Nothing puts a crick in your back and a pain in your knee like climbing in and out of your pickup's bed, especially when you're making multiple trips. Instead of putting your body through the ringer, give yourself a big boost with the Bestop TrekStep Retractable Tailgate Step. This ingenious tailgate step is spring loaded, dropping down 6" when you need it and tucking up under your bumper when you don't.

Whether you're hoisting hay bales into your payload or simply reaching for the cooler, your Bestop TrekStep Retractable Tailgate Step is sturdy enough to handle any task. This pickup truck tailgate step is forged from heavy-duty aluminum with cast aluminum brackets, giving it enough muscle to shoulder up to 300 lbs of dead weight. Plus, the step surface is coated with a non-slip texture for sure footing even in foul weather.

Best of all, your Bestop TrekStep Retractable Tailgate Step mounts on the side of your rig, so you can use it with your tailgate door open or closed. And, it's custom designed for a fast, no-drill install—10 minutes with a wrench is all it takes. You also get a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty with your retractable truck step.

The step was easy to install and works as advertised. I showed it to a couple of friends and they ordered the step as well. Great product!

I could not find the F250 in the pkg I wanted with step in the tailgate like my 2013 had, so after a lot of study and review reading, I bought the Trekstep, the instructions are incomplete but I used the ones fm amp R. much better, and once you realize that the oem bumper bolts are welded to a piece of bar stock and it keeps pushing back you need to keep it tight to the frame to get the nuts on, used 3 shims, works great, "Luv It"

Bestop TrekStep is a Functional Step for Pickups

I had our local Ford dealer install this retractable step on my new 2015 F150, on the left side. It works very well. In fact, probably better than the optional center-tailgate integrated step available on the F150. Why: because while Ford's built-in step is sensational if you have the tailgate down and are not hauling a trailer, the Bestop TrekStep is a functional step whether the tailgate is up or down, and since it's mounted off to one side, any trailer arm won't get in its way.

Well designed, look like factory original

Easy to install , I spent 45 minute putting it on , would have been faster but it was raining. It would have been nice if it had came with 4 shims instead of 3 on my ford.
