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.

Great alternative to the factory step up

Reviewed by Derek D (Paw Paw, MI) Reviewed for a 2014 Ford F-150 — Oct 13, 2014 7:15 AM

Ford wants around 1K for the tailgate step option. The truck I bought didn't have it so I purchased the Bestop. It installed in about 15 minutes and is barely visible when retracted. It works very well & I'd recommend it to anyone. The only change I made was to use stainless bolts instead of the ones provided.

Exactly what I was looking for

Reviewed by Spencer B (Helotes, TX) Reviewed for a 2014 Toyota Tundra — Jul 18, 2014 9:01 AM

Harder to install than the instructions say especially since they are unclear on some things. I installed it on my 2014 Tundra. Took about an hour. Works great though.

Tailgate step

Reviewed by kim s (JANESVILLE, WI) — Jun 11, 2014 5:01 AM

Pr-assembled loosely and took me about 20 minutes to install. I've used sparingly and so far impressed me with durability. It will be interesting to see if snow or slush build up is an issue this winter.

Extra step

Reviewed by Michael W (Macomb, MI) Reviewed for a 2013 Chevy Silverado — May 28, 2014 5:44 AM

No need for me to carry a small step stool any longer just to make it easier for my aging body to get into the truck bed. The Bestop Trekstep works as designed.

Awesome solution for F350!

Reviewed by Edgar V (Liberty TWP, OH) Reviewed for a 2006 Ford F-350 — Apr 14, 2014 9:12 PM

Highly functional, great quality finish and engineering. It was easy to install with straight forward instructions; did it myself in less than 20 minutes. I will definitely buy this product again if a need arises.
