I have to admit that GMC Sierra for 2014 (idea came from Chevy Avalanche) got it right with the step bumper. It can be used with the tailgate up or down. Just grab the corner steak pocket and lift yourself up.

Just my 2 cents and opinion.



so you can lift your foot up 3 feet but not another 3 inches hehehaha lol chevy.

The step is great. Get it.

Otherwise there's no easy way to get into the bed especially with the tailgate down.

If it weren't for that step, I wouldn't be able to get into the truck bed without a ladder...

The step is well worth having.

I have had it on my last few f-150's, and have used it a bunch. I've never had an issue with it rattling by the way.

Our set up is much better than GMs IMO. I load square bales of hay in mine all the time and that step is money. GM would have put the step on if Ford didn't do it first I bet. The GMs might be good at grabbing something out of the bed, but our's is way more functional for getting into the bed.....

Question Add tailgate step as a mod afterwards?
My Raptor SC did not come with the tailgate step option and I would like to add this feature. Would I have to replace the entire tailgate or is there a list of parts that I could purchase to add this feature?
