Truck N' Buddy
Using this product for a dog step more than a human step. Works well as a seat for a person as well. I did not install the handle as there is a cap on the truck. I installed some individual tape strips on the steps as added traction for the dog, otherwise it is slippery. You may have to use longer screws if there is a tailgate protector. I installed it over the protector and drilled some optional holes because of alignment issues.
For those of you that have a full size truck that could use a step in-between the ground and open tail gate the Truck N Buddy works great. I bought ours for a 3/4 ton Dodge. Those that have experience with these types of trucks know they sit higher off the ground than other brands. This item solved my issue with lifting heavy tools in and out of the truck all day long. Back saver and cheaper than the chiropractor!
Great product for old knees
Installed this step on a 2015 Ram 4WD Sport last week to assist me in entering and egressing the rather high bed of the truck. For that, it works well. Pros: Very sturdy and well built Easy to use Cons: When deployed, step is not level, it tilts up at about a 15 degree angle A little fussy to stow and secure with the supplied bungee. Is rather large and bulky Wish it had a quick release mount to allow its removal when unneeded
