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.

It is right where you need it when you need it but never in the way. makes getting in and out of the truck bed not only easy but safe. No chance of a blown knee jumping to the ground. As I get older this saves my knees crawling onto the bed. Must have accessory. Adds no weight and keeps the tailgate clear, unlike the bulky factory ladders etc. Must have. Installs on existing factory fender studs in under 10 minutes. Take two nuts off, slip on assembled step and reinstall the two nuts.

I just installed it a few weeks ago and seems to work and function well. The only complaint was trying to get to the top bolt and then removing the 22M socket. Which I actually left up in there and will need to go back at a another time to retrieve it. You have to pry a piece of the bed sheet metal (rib) with a pretty heavy bar in order to remove the socket. Brian

This is my third Trekstep! They work excellent. Easy installation and very sturdy. My current truck has the factory tail gate step, but you can't use it when you have a trailer hooked up. The Trekstep is at a better height than the factory one and you don't have the pole in the middle of the tail gate getting in the way.

Great product

After buying my 2014 F150 I realized how much higher the bed was compared to my Ford Ranger. I could not load it from the side and had to load and unload it from the back. This entailed getting up into the bed. I am a very active 70 year old but climbing in the bed was a chore. I looked at a number of solutions and decided ao the TrekStep. I am glad i did. It works great. Easy to operate and the installation was great. It works well with the tailgate up or down. When up it is hardly noticeable
