My 05 3/4 4x4 4 door 4:10 six speed will get near 25 HWY @ 55... I dive old though. I would be pissed if it didn't do at least 30. Ps: it gets 20.? Average without 5er of course. I am well pleased. I had two gasser dodges 2 and 4wd that got 13 average both 3/4 tons

The GM integrated step bumper is WAY less pokey as the Ford tailgate step with hand rail! IMO

What is "pokey"? I'm not in bad shape for a 63 year old, but there are times when I'm very glad I have that Ford tailgate step. It is great!

Me too. Love it when a milk crate is nearby when I need to climb up into the bed. (I don't have a step on mine) Lol.

I'll agree, the handrail was over the top.

I did not order the step when I bought mine because I was afraid of ripping it off the tailgate when someone is loading a pallet of wood pellets.

I just use the receiver hitch.

BTW, you can use the step without the handrail.

fixed income dance step

I agree with dcheatwood; as my wife and I are now a fixed income, we keep a small stepstool for getting in the bed; no more fancy store bought stuff for us. (not that I wouldn't get a Ford type ladder step or a new back bumper w/step if I could!)
Happy Camping!!

The Ford step was for getting in and out of the truck while the Chevy step also let's short folks reach in w/o dropping the tailgate. The plus with the Ford step is that it is visible when your getting out and the Chevy you can use to get the kids' bikes out so you can unhitch in peace.

I doubt it as they have had diesel Wranglers in Europe for years but refuse to offer it North America which is a shame as those things have always been under powered in my opinion.
