I recently purchased a bed step on Realtrucks.com, it was manufactured by Lund, however, where the hole is on the piece that fits into the 2" hitch assembly is so far back on the receiver of the step, the step sticks out way to far from the hitch assembly for my liking. Has anyone here purchased one that they really like! Could you post a pic if you have one that you think looks good and where you purchased it.

Thanks.

I bought this one from Real Trucks but I had a hole drilled into it so it fits snug up against the hitch

Same problem that I am having with the Lund one....but the receiver piece is about 1/2" thick and hole would be a bitch unless done with a plasma cutter....is possible! But I like the one "timbotc" has with the lites....where did you get it!

I haven't bought one because if you swing the door open to the left, the license plate area becomes a step effectively.

Did this several times today as I was washing/waxing my truck. I used the tailgate to balance.

I do too. It's the easiest truck bed to get into that I've ever had or worked around. I find that I'm opening the tailgate to the side 70% of the time.

Can either one of you tell me how much "play" does the tailgate have in terms of up & down when it`s swinged out ??... mine does a little bit and I was wondering if others find it to be too much play ??...would preferred a little stiffer at the hinged area though...Thanks ! :smile:


I've come close to buying one of these especially the NHL logo ones. Would really like to see a picture if someone else has done it.
I have one that said "CANADA"...also have an anti-theft hitch pin...will take a picture for you tomorrow. :wink:

I'll have to check and get back to you. I haven't really noticed any play, but I'm sure there is some. As you probably know, some up-and-down give is a good thing. You don't want it to be so tight that parts wear out quickly. I'll check today and hopefully post tonight — if Ridgerunner67 doesn't beat me to it.
:grin:
