You can get this truck in Australia as a diesel under the Holden brand, thus the plug.

Well I guess a crate version and more than a few mods will work for me.
The low end torque would be a kick in the pants.

When you pull out the step from the tailgate, then upright the hand rail...looks like a stair climber machine hanging back there!

I thought the tailgate step was over the top, too... until I had one.
That thing was VERY useful. And I'm 33 and in pretty good shape. Makes loading up for camping WAY easier. Who gives a crap what it looks like when deployed??? Not like you can tell it's even there when not deployed.

What he said. Don't knock it till you try one for more than a day. I cannot imagine being without it. Although I could do without the handle.

I'll risk sounding extremely redneck and say this, too; It works great when you need to haul some passengers in the bed that are older or, well, plump- for example when loading up to go out in the pasture for a weenie roast, or riding to the swim beach at the campgrounds.

I think this has floated well in to the void of being off topic.

Heck, I love my AMP bed step for lugging my lard-tush up into the bed!
