    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.....

    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?

    Cayman, pretty sure you'd be looking at a new tailgate, but not really sure. I've had the step on my last 4 F-150's and it's great, much better (IMO) than the other brands cut out. You should make this it's own post and may get a better response than it being buried in this older thread...

    Yeah thanks, that's what I've been thinking too based on further research.
    I don't live in the USA so after the cost of the tailgate, painting it Blue Flame and shipping something that large and heavy it probably wouldn't be worth it unless it was a really great price.

    I was hoping I could ship a few smaller parts to my brothers house in Florida and put them in my suitcase on my next trip!
