Description

The Amp Research BedStep is the perfect tailgate step. It is an ingeniously designed, heavy duty truck tailgate step and will fit most trucks in the industry. They are made for people who use their truck like a truck! And the best part is these steps are made to retract with a gentle nudge when finished. Yep you're not mistaken and are witnessing a retracting step that is easy to use and won't break the bank.

Whether you're a construction worker trying to grasp hard to reach tools, a parent with kids who seem to live in your truck bed or just an average Joe. You'll find many practical uses for this simplistic bed step from Amp Research. The linkage system is made out of die-cast aluminum, and will hold up to 300 lbs. The retraction pivot points are composed of stainless steel pins which swing up or down with ease, while offering heavy duty support.

As you can see in the images above, the Amp Research BedStep comes with a non-slip step pad. It is made out of durable and glass reinforced composite, which assists in a safe step up.

Simply kick the step down with a gentle nudge of a toe and whether the tailgate is open or not, you've got the boost needed for a comfortably and safe stepping experience. When your truck bed trip is complete and you're ready to step down, simply flip the pad up into its retracted place and go about your business. No bending over. No tracks to roll, no nothing! The best part - you'll hardly notice the step is there.

This product is literally great for any truck owner. Buy today and remember that RealTruck always offers free shipping.

I was worried about some of the reviews on Reseller Ratings on RealTruck. The price was better than could be found anywhere else, including Amazon. That worries were thrown out as I received confirmation and the product at my door very quickly. That earns RealTruck my future business.

It took more time to remove the old bolts and brackets from the factory truck than to install the step. (The truck was brand spanking new, it was just the placement of the factory support brackets which were time consuming.)

It is a knuckle-buster if you don't have the right extensions.

My truck is black with chrome bumpers, so the step looks slightly out of place and noticeable. One reason I wanted a black on black truck, but none to be found.

One word of warning. When I looked at the instructions online and youtube, they showed using slip-nuts and bolts to mount the step pad. They have changes this design that you now thread screws into the pad. I think this was a bad redesign to save a few pennies. If those screws ever loosen and strip out, you're basically screwed. (No punintended) They should have stuck with the nuts and bolts which can be easily replaced instead of having to replace the entire step. I may not have purchases this knowing that fact. While the construction of this unit is very good, the change of the step mounting method is why I rate this average in quality. Only time will tell if this holds up.

Was easy to install believe it could blend in with the bumper better it sits at an angle. Would like to see a better design. As to be more parallel with the bumper.
Trucks are to tall

a simple solution to a big problem, I have a 2014 Ford 150. These trucks are simply to tall to get up in the bed easily. Chevy has a step in the bumper which is what Ford should do it looks better, but they do not. So this works well very easy to fold down and just bump it to raise back up. Once you practice your foothold you can manage getting up as easily as stepping on a step stool. WELL worth the money because its to difficult to climb up and down for a 50 year old man like me.
Great idea

I installed this myself, and the product works well. However the bolts supplied with this product are inferior. I had to clean all the threads to prevent them from tearing the mating part. Good thing i know how to do that!
Well designed - packaging AND product itself.

I received my order promptly from RealTruck via FedEx, and with today finally not being rainy got to install it. I was impressed with how well everything was put in the box, the instructions were clear, and the step itself is very well designed. Install time took about 30 minutes with me taking my time. The biggest challenge with the installation was fitting my torque wrench to install the top bolt - something I was able to complete by using an extension in order to get wrench away from the narrowest point between the bumper and the exhaust pipe.

The product fits PERFECT on my Ram 1500 Crew Cab 5'7" bed. It is pricy, but it is also high quality - I definitely recommend getting one.
Better than expected

It's better than I expected because it is actually more functional than anticipated. It sits at the right height to step right up to the tailgate which is not something I could do without this product. Installation was very easy as well. Took about 20 minutes. Little pricey but it's a quality product.
