Product Info
Features:
  • The only truck hitch that works when your tailgate is down
  • The versatile HitchMate TruckStep is available in two sizes and extends a full 23.5” (Standard) or 31" (XL) to clear your open tailgate
  • Supports up to 500 lbs
  • Your trailer hitch step mounts to any 2” receiver
  • The HitchMate TruckStep is made to last from zinc-plated steel
  • Slip-free rubber pad built into the step
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty
Description:

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.

Notes:
  • 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.

Wonderful!

Just exactly what is needed to get in & out of the truck bed, especially for someone who can't jump like he did 50 (even 15) years ago.

Hitchmate extra long

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.

Useful

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

Functions as expected

Bought the version for use with the truckbed tent or work in the truckbed on a Ford F-150 where it does have to clear the spare tire. It came assembled and mounts to the hitch as expected. Extension and retraction works as expected. Folding the step up and down is a little weird but it does hold your weight when the step is down.

Awesome step

It works great and is very sturdy. I purchased two and use them in my camper tie down hitches on both sides of the truck to reach items in the truck when camper is not on. Works great.

Great design

The concept is great, but it was a little too short. So I bolted on a diamond plate to extend it a couple of inches.

Well made and very useful

I have used this several times since purchasing and have not found anything to complain about. I am 6' 5" tall and break the scales at over 300 pounds. I can say that, even extended for use with tailgate open, the Hitchmate step is very very sturdy. The "oversized" step makes you feel confident and balanced not like teetering on a peg. I leave it in the receiver for the convenience of it being there when needed and use it as a hitch cover at the same time. I would recommend it.

Great product. Could be 2" longer and a little difficult closing up the step pad.

Mike's truck step

Found it a little stiff at first to raise and lower the step. Do like the way it operates both with the gate closed and open. I wish the step which fits the left rear and lowers and raises out of the way had been available for my pickup.

HM review

received unit in good condition, however unit only extends 18" at short point and 22" at longer point. that's 1 1/2 shorter than stated in add. so i attempt to return it (super nice and knowledgeable return people) and i have to pay return shipping. that doesn't seem fair when what i was told i was buying was not what i received. was going to switch to longer 30" unit ( probably only 28") but the price jumps from $59 to $199 - WOW. probably just give it to someone with smaller truck.

The greatest hitch step ever

This Hitch step I bought from Auto Anything has turned out to be the best purchase ever that I purchased for my truck. Its heavy duty, it works as directed and has saved my body from aches and pains by making it easy to get up into my truck bed. After seeing it and using it I would have paid much more for it as it "works" George Bentley
