Best Truck Steps, Save your Knees
I don’t use my knees to climb up into my pickup bed anymore, putting my weight on my knee on metal isn’t as fun as it use to be. Best Truck Steps allows easy access to your truck bed. You’ve seen Ford come out with a tailgate step for 2008 trucks, which isn’t cheap and hard to set on. Many of the newer trucks have tall bed sides so you can’t just reach over the bed rail anymore and then there are the 4×4’s. The 3/4 ton and one ton 4×4’s are taller right from the factory . This means you have to climb into the bed to reach anything. And then there’s the long way down if you jump out of the bed. Access Steps are simple to install and stay out of the way. Best Steps save your knees climbing in your truck bed.
The new Ford truck built in tailgate steps makes nice commercials, but they make the tailgate heavier, you can’t sit on the tailgate or use it as a work bench anymore. And who wants to pull the step and handle out each time you use it. Other steps in the receiver hitch or on the side, don’t have a hand rail. Best Truck Steps is on the side of your trucks tailgate so you can use your trucks bedrail as a handrail.
Unlike other steps, Best Truck Steps will work with or without a receiver hitch. They don’t have moveable parts to wear out or lubricate. So many steps I review use the receiver hitch frame or stick in the receiver hitch so you can’t us the receiver hitch for your trailer at the same time as a step.
And they will work with mudflaps or you can attach mudflaps, unlike the other guys (picture right). Powder coated, tread plate for footing, nothing to wear out.
Installation as easy as 1-2-3. Attaches to the truck frame and bumper bracket. Two grade 8 bolts thru the frame.
Gen-Y Hitch heavy duty adjustable drawbar for today’s powerful trailering trucks: These steel adjustable, multi-ball, multi-height, pintle, or weight distributing hitch is the highest trailer rated hitch I’ve seen. The one I’m using from Gen-Y Hitch is rated for a 16,000 lb. trailer with a 2 inch shank. For Class V receiver, 2.5 inch shank, trailer rating goes up to 20,000 lbs. Their newest hitch is the Torsion Flex Hitch that isolates how your trailer bounces verses your truck for a smoother ride.

If you have too much trailer tongue weight, your truck or SUV will squat excessively, aim your headlights to the stars and stress your trucks rear axle, brakes and suspension.
