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.

Installation was very complicated. I have to removed the entire left bumper to installed. It took me about 3 hrs to installed it. That's the only reason why I gave 4 stars. It looks pretty darn good in my truck once installed. Thank you AUTO ANYTHING....

Slightly disappointed

We purchased an Amp bed step on our 2008 F-150 and should have done the same with our new 2016 F-150. Instead we purchased the Bestop model. Installation was straight forward and except for a minor discrepancy between the instructions and reality the installation went effortlessly. My disappointment is that the Bestop model is more visible than the AMP model. Also the AMP model retracts at an angle so that with the tailgate lowered the step is to the side, whereas the Bestop is straight back.

I am very pleased with this retractable tailgate step. It has made it much easier to climb into the truck with the tail gate down. My Toyota Tundra is very high and hard to climb into. The installation was easy and took about 30 minutes.

Perfect Height for easy access

The step was easy to install and is the exact height to easily step up onto the open tailgate or rear bumper. I would recommend this option to everyone.
