Description:

You know how airplane flight attendants warn you after your flight lands about opening the overhead bins because your items may have shifted during flight? As if the headache from the kid kicking the back of your seat all flight wasn’t bad enough, now you risk a twenty-plus pound suitcase crashing down and smacking your head. Sure, your truck (unfortunately) isn’t capable of travelling over 500 MPH. And even though your rig won’t experience any turbulence, potholes, speed bumps, and uneven payment can just as easily have you and your cargo bouncing around. Once finally at your destination, your belongings may no longer be back near the tailgate where you last left them. And if your truck has a longer bed or a lift kit, there may be little to no hope for reaching whatever rolls to the back of your truck. Luckily, AMP Research has designed the BedStep Retractable Tailgate Step!

Sometimes the simplest of ideas really can be the most useful. After just one use, you’ll wonder how you owned a truck for so long without having it. By mounting directly to the frame of your truck, and being made from high strength aluminum alloys, this step is incredibly durable, supporting up to 300 pounds.To help ensure long term durability, all bushings are self-lubricating. It mounts to the driver side of your ride, so even with the tailgate open, or trailer attached, you can have full access to the step. When you’re ready to use it, simply give it a nudge and the step will retract out from under your bumper. Once you’ve retrieved your cargo, another nudge will push the step back into place and out of sight. The oversized step pad is able to support both feet, even in work boots. The pad is made from a glass-reinforced composite to ensure long term durability and the aggressive non slip treads prevent any rain or slush from building up. The entire step features a corrosion-resistant, anodized and PTFE Teflon™-coated finish, so even in the most extreme conditions you can depend on this step to perform. Rust never stood a chance of calling this step home.

Each step is custom made to be an exact fit for your specific truck. All necessary mounting hardware and step by step instructions are included. AMP Research proudly produces your BedStep in the United States and backs it with a three year, 36,000 mile warranty. And as always, when you purchase from AutoAnything, you’ll enjoy fast free shipping. Need some assistance? Our friendly, helpful customer service team is available 7 days a week to answer any questions you may have.

Step UP!

Just the step I needed; beats putting your knee on the tailgate and climbing in. As you get older that is more difficult to do! Easy to install, let down and retract. If you just want to check something in the bed, it is so simple to let down with your toe and back up when you are finished. Looks good and doesnt hang down so no worry about hanging it on something.

AMP rear bumper step for 2018 F-150 super crew

One of the best aftermarket accessory purchase made. The AMP step is well worth the money . The installation on my F-150 was easy. Deep sockets are a must and ratchet open end wrenches. watch one of the videos and install is easy. Great well made product. Glenn in Fresno CA

Bolt stripped

When assembling the step for a 2006 Ford F250, two spacers were needed. When tightening the bolts through the spacers and into the step, on stripped with minimal torque applied, well under the torque specified in the instal instructions.

Great Step For Pickups

I have had one on my Titan for 3 years, and just put one on my new F-150. They are not easy to do laying on your back, but if you have a lift, and an extra hand, it's much easier.

Nice but install is a little bit of work

2018 Silverado 3500 dually. Quality piece and would buy it again. The install did not go according to directions. There are 2 braces, 1 horizontal and 1 vertical. The horizontal one fit ok, a bit of a space. The vertical one had nowhere to bolt to the bed brace and I looked at it for quite awhile. I ended up drilling a hole in the bed brace. Maybe I didn't see where it mounted but I doubt it.

A nicely designed step, but pricey for what it is.

The AMP Bedstep is a well thought out, and well designed step. Installation was a breeze and it functions as advertised. However, at that pricepoint, I was a little disappointed in some of the platform's plastic construction. Time will tell if it holds up under heavy use. I only weight 180lbs and if I step on the left hand portion, there is noticeable flex. Also, being right behind the rear tire, the pivot points going to catch a lot of spray. We'll see how it holds up after this winter.

Awesome but pricey

Great product and easy enough to install although the instructions could have been better. I just can't see what justifies the price. After actually having assembled, installed and used the thing, I wouldn't pay more than $150 for this product if I had it to do over.
