Traditional hitch steps work wonders when you need a boost into your payload or up to your roof. But, they're completely useless as soon as you lower your tailgate. When you equip your rig with the HitchMate TruckStep, your step is always ready to lend a hand. This retractable truck step slides out a full 23.5" (Standard) or 31" (XL) to clear your open tailgate and give you a leg up anytime you need it.
Built to be as rugged and dependable as your rig, the HitchMate TruckStep is constructed from heavy-duty steel and finished with a rust-repellent zinc plating. It's got enough backbone to support up to 500 lbs even when fully extended. What's more, the step pad sports an anti-slip rubber pad, giving you sure footing even if your boots are caked in mud and crud. And, the step flips up and sits flush with your bumper when you're not using your trailer hitch step.
Best of all, the HitchMate TruckStep mounts to any 2" receiver hitch. Got more than one vehicle? This truck hitch step is easy to slip on and take off, so it's simple to swap between vehicles. And, it's backed by a limited Lifetime Warranty.
- The Standard TruckStep may not be able to retract if you have an undercarriage-mounted spare tire. The TruckStep XL offers more clearance for under-mounted spare tires.

The Hitchmate XL works well and goes out just beyond the opened tailgate. It is a little heavy perhaps if it was made out of aluminum it would be easier to handle. The plastic holder for the nut inside the attachment for the unit does not firmly hold the unit tight. A better system would be a metal tapped sleeve inside the hollow 2 inch tube that could be bolted with two short bolts on both sides of the trailer hitch.

Had to purchase a drop-down hitch extension because my Hummer H3t's spare tire is behind the rear bumper so in the extracted position it was fine but when I went to close it obviously the tire got in the way,could not attach it with out the extension which wasn't mentioned
