LED light strip was detached on arrival and was applied with cheap double sided tape!!

That is disappointing! I am sorry to see it showed up that way. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.



by:

I bought this for my Subaru which has a1-1/4” hitch, this is the only one I found that fits without an adapter. I live in a city and didn’t want my bumper getting hit and scuffed and so far it’s worked. Also it’s helpful if you need to step up to put something on the roof rack or if you are sitting in the hatch putting on, say, ski boots. It’s very sturdy and, at least with a Subaru, kind of looks like it belongs.



by:

Poor quality. End caps came off/split open. I contacted via email to Bully and trailer and never got a response from either.

I reached out to the manufacturer and while the caps are not available to purchase separately, they will be in touch with you.



by:

Upon receiving this product, I had to re-glue the LED light strip, other than that very minor problem, it performs really well. It protected my rear bumper a couple of times and facilitate tying anything I put on the roof rack..



by:

Good but LED are not working. I don’t know if I need anything else to make it work properly. I looked at the instructions and it said I may need a “load resistor”. What is that she how can I get it? As far as the product goes, it installed easy. Like many reviews said, the rubber end caps were coming off. I used some gorilla glue to glue them down, no problem. It’s not like they came off, they are secure in the middle so, you can kind of pull it out but not OFF. I stood in it and it was fine. I just want to find out how I can get the LED’s to work. Would have been nice if the hitch step come with a hitch pin, but other that the Product is fine.

The load resistors would help if the lights were hyper flashing however they will not help if the lights are not working at all. I recommend testing the vehicles four way to make sure all the functions are active and if they are, then plug the step connector in and test behind the step plug to see if the signal is making it to the step. If it is then more than likely it is defective.



by:

I admit I was skeptical, this came with a plastic sleeve to fit multiple receivers. seemed kind of flimsy. but I installed it as directed, and plugged it in. supported my (abundant) weight no worries. Didn't feel week using it. Lights worked great, very visible. I have been happy with it.
****SURPRISE****
A year after buying it, the company contacted me and is just now asking for a product review. Like they truly care, and not just fishing for positive statements.
Best thing I can say about this product, I got tagged in the rear end by a Buick. She broke the License plate (only a Patriots plate) on her front bumper, tore a hole in her bumper, and only put a slight scratch on my step. Yep the Lights still work and look great.
Not so flimsy after all. Highly recommend this step and even Higher recommendation to this company.
Good business gentlemen



by:

Received the step hitch yesterday, and it looks good and functions well for stepping into my SUV cargo area. However, I was dis-satisfied with two details.

1. The flat 4 pin trailer connector plug was significantly smaller in pin center line / pitch spacing, causing difficulty in mating with the vehicle 4 pin trailer receptacle. it is made overseas, and there is obviously some molding & tooling dimension quality problems. The plastic -on the connector pins is rigid plastic, so the pins cannot even flex or splay to allow some compliance, for the three pins to insert more easily inot another manufacturers receptacle.

2. The wire harness pigtail is not tethered inside the step bar housing, and can pull out very easily, exposing the wires. The sealing grommet on wire harness was loose, and road weather elements will quickly get into the step housing causing some unwanted corrosion with the internal connectors to the LED light strip.



by:

It does the job as a step. I could not get the LED light to work. They would be nice, but I did not buy for the light.

The first step that I would check on is the 4-way connection of your vehicle and see if it is working as intended. If it getting and sending the proper signals. I have included a quick video and a troubleshooting help article that address these concerns. I hope this info helps you get the LED working on your Bully Hitch step.

Great product easy to install quick turn around and shipping packaging extremely good Would recommend to my friends

Works great no problems



by:

Overall a good well made quality product. Unfortunately I was unable to fully connect the electrical connectors together which left a gap, which I wrapped with electrical tape to keep out the elements. Also, the tape on the anti-rattle stabilizer was not tacky and I'm sure will come off in time. Both issues probably due to the cold weather here in NJ. I appreciate the technical support with my question regarding a four pin to five pin connection. The LED's on the step are working well.

Still very happy with it, because Im vertically challenged it assists my loading the back of my Lexus RX 350 with cargo. I do need to take care when exiting the rear so my shins dont get scraped. The LEDs are still working great and shining brightly.Nice product.



by:

Just got my light up hitch step today and i love the way it looks! It seems to be very sturdy and I love it so far



by:

Solid quality / 3 minute installation /



by:

Great item just wish it would have came with 7 pin to 4 pin adapter. But I was able to find one at my local tractor supply store.

Product is still holding up great . Have used it several times to get in and out of the bed. Lights all work as they are supposed to. Best product I have purchased in a long time 5 stars from me.



by:

LED light strip fell off within one week. Shims are not helpful as they they are not thin enough to insert.



by:

Very trustworthy she's my order on time as promised is perfect for me helps protect my bumper and also gives me that extra height I need to reach the top of my roof to clean my vehicle



by:

Looks great and has functioned properly. Also offers a degree of protection from rear end collisions



by:

Love ordering from etrailer. Their delivery times and tracking are great! I have ordered a hitch, cargo basket, and now the wiring and hitch cover and have been extremely happy with all these products. What I love the most is the instructional videos on installations and the follow up from George! They always check in as soon as you receive the products to be sure you are completely satisfied. Highly recommend etrailer! Thanks for renewing my faith in ordering products online!

by:

Nice step with LED's. My son's truck looked great with it. Unfortunately someone hit the rear of the truck and bent the step- but I am glad it was just the step and not the bumper or hitch itself. So I ordered a replacement.



by:

Am loving the step up hitch attachment. Extra lights in the back for braking or just as a visual make me more comfortable. Only issue I have is the rubber covers on either side have worn off or in case of one side disappeared. But has no affect on the function of the product. All in all I would highly recommend this product.



by:

I am very disappointed in the LED light, it is a sticker that does not stick. I going to have to figure out what kind of glue that will work for all type of weather. I am very disappointed that is a sticker and not more of a permanent fixture.



by:

When I first saw the pictures of the item, I figurex it would be something less durable. But when item was received, it was made with solid metal. Item was as promised. Actually it was better. Etrailer.com please keep up the good products.

Still in one piece. Working as advertised.



by:

Steelwork is well done, electrical - not so much. Within days of installation I had to resecure the LED strip and install a grommet to protect the wiring where it passes through the steel.

Great product concept particularly for those of us who drive the Jeep cross-overs. It provides additional protection for the vulnerable fuel tank.



by:

As advertised, easy to install. The LED wire is quite long and can be pulled out to suit the length of your plug-in.
My only comment was regarding the plastic sleeve fir a 2 inch hitch. The hole did not align exactly with the steel hitch. Workable but annoying.



by:

Love this hitch cover so much had to purchase another because my son took it for his truck lol. I like the LED lighting, the step, and having something stick out against the the small tailgating vehicles...….(and not my actual tow hitch)



by:

Really nice and well built. Cord was not fitted very well but a few rounds of electrical tape solved that problem nicely. The LED lights are a very nice feature. I highly recommend.
