Lifesaver for me. Could not get into truck bed otherwise. Works well even in winter and with mud.
Great item.

Review from a similar TrekStep Toolbox in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


When I got my brand new 2013 Ford F150 with 8'-0 bed I knew I needed a side step . But looking at sidesteps on line, most brands didn't show how it would connect to the underside of my truck! They would just have a picture of the truck with the sidestep. But Bestop would also show how it would attach to my truck and that was the deciding factor for me!

Review from a similar TrekStep Toolbox in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Installed on a 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 crew cab. Step fits perfectly and operates smoothly. Instructions can be a bit confusing since it is designed to fit several year models. A installation video like the one for the rear step would be helpful. Still not sure how to use the adjustable screw on the crossbar mount.


Comments
Take the bolt and tighten against the frame. Once it is tight, tighten the nut against the cross bar as a jamb nut to keep the bolt from rattling loose. This is covered in Step 10 of the instructions.

The sales team was extremely helpful, had to order a different step and return the other. Christian was very helpful with this process. Love the new step and fits perfectly. This step makes it easy for reaching over the side of the box.Thank you!!

Review from a similar TrekStep Toolbox in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Useful and easy-to-use and install. But pretty expensive, considering you can get a full set of running boards forest money.


Comments
They are just ok. They look fine but dont hang as low as the OEM so dont help shorter passengers as much.

These steps are everything they said they were. Installed them myself with basic tools. Had to make a couple minor adjustments to the mounts but not a problem.

Review from a similar TrekStep Toolbox in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


I do really like these steps. They are great for a handicapped person and for anyone who is vertically challenged. With todays tall sided pickup beds in the heavy duty models these are a godsend for plucking things out of the bed or toolbox.

I found the greatest benefit for me is pulling the pin on a fifth wheel and placing the lock bar on the handle and putting your security pin or lock in whatever it may be.

These steps are extremely heavy duty and work really slick as far as the kick out and in. The only thing I found is that the instructions are oversimplified and not nearly as simple and quick to install as stated. The 30 minutes per side will definitely turn into a minimum of two hours. It is certainly doable and I am testimony to that at 65 years old and handicapped. You just have to take your time and a lot of it. The instructions, though, very plainly printed and even diagrams fail to make this a simple operation. I would do it again for the convenience they provide.

I would also like to mention Etrailer's great service and products and helpful and friendly staff. There was a delay in their shipment from the factory which they apprised me of and offered up some substitute products, but there really is no substitute for these steps.

Review from a similar TrekStep Toolbox in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


The product seems to be well made and relatively easy to install. It how ever did not work for my needs on a 2017 Ram with an 8' box. The instructions called for mounting on the bed rail closest to the front of the bed. This made the reach to access the locking mechanism of the 5th wheel hitch quite a stretch. I looked at mounting it to the 2nd rail but the DEF lines are hard clamped at that point and interfered with the installation. I believe it would work well with a 6.5 foot bed.

Review from a similar TrekStep Toolbox in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


Although I was skeptical at first, this item did fit my 2012 GMC 2500HD Denali. Make sure you read through ALL the directions first, as there are different directions for different models...and because of that there will be parts left over. They provide different mounting parts for various types of bed supports. The fitting can be rather tight, such as the long 2-piece support bar that has to line up on it's bolt holes, so be prepared to pull on the main mounting bracket to get it to fit.

Review from a similar TrekStep Toolbox in Nerf Bars - Running Boards


I was smart enough to know the install was going to be hard. I paid Toyota to do the install while I was at a medical appointment. You really should have a rate system on how hard it is to do your own install. The product works at advertised and I am a heavy guy. The two guys doing the install said something to the effect "...I never thought my arm would fit like that to reach the bolt holes." This one had the gas tank in the way, so it was the hardest to reach anything. Also it was said the truck pictures did not match.

the side step and mud guards are a big hit with the person for whom they were a gift. Thats the best I could hope for. Follow up by the staff, Jason and Travis was exceptional. Happy to order from etrailer any time!

I have a 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. Had to modify the product to get it to fit. Had to add a 1/4" shim to the top of the Top mounting bracket. And also had to bend the top of the side bracket to fit the locking block. But once installed step works great.

I don't have a picture of our step , but it is every thing we wanted. when it is out it is the same height as our running boards.it is easy to pull out and put in. we are thinking of getting one more for our new truck.

NIce piece of equipment. Much needed to get into the back of my truck bed. It tucks away nicely and was fairly easy install. The price is right and heavier construction would make it weigh more and raise the price for materials. Rick

The order of 2 heavy items arrived on time as expected and apparently undamaged. Upon my request, etrailer packed and wrapped my heavy items together in a very sturdy box, stapled shut, in addition to the manufacturer packaging. This outer box was undamaged and the contents appear undamaged, though I have yet to open the items.

  • Distance From Mounting Bracket to Arm and Step for Bestop TrekStep Side Mounted Truck Step
    Thanks for highlighting what you were asking in the photo of the Bestop TrekStep Side Mounted Truck Step # B7541315. From the bracket to the first part of the arm was right about 9" and then from that elbow in the arm to the edge of the step was right at 12-5/8". I went ahead and added my measurements to the photo.

  • Will the Bestop TrekStep Truck Bumper Step Part # B75306 Fit a 2017 Ram 2500
    Yes we sure do. The correct Bestop TrekStep Truck Bumper Step for your 2017 Ram 2500 is part # B75306. If you have dual exhaust the TrekStep can still be used but will require you to reroute the tailpipes in order for the step to fit. The TrekStep is a complete bolt-on installation that conveniently stores beneath your truck's rear bumper when not in use. It has a weight capacity of 300 lbs. with an included 3 year warranty. I have included a few photos that will show how the step looks...

  • Truck Side Step Recommendation For 2015 RAM 2500 Crew Cab
    The truck bed step I recommend for your 2015 Ram 2500 Crew Cab is the Bestop TrekStep Side Mounted Truck Step, part # B7541315. This is a driver-side mounted spring-loaded side step that mounts directly to the frame of your RAM truck in front of the rear wheel. This step has a weight capacity of 400 lbs and is easily extended with just a push of your foot. The step platform measures 11-1/2 inches long and 6-1/2 inches wide and is made of extruded aluminum with a black powder coat finish. The...

  • Recommended Bumper Step For 2014 Ram 2500
    The Bestop TrekStep Truck Bumper Step - Rear Mounted - Aluminum - Driver or Passenger Side # B7531015 you asked the question from is not a fit for your 2014 Ram 2500, however there is one that is. I recommend the Bestop TrekStep Truck Bumper Step - Aluminum - Driver Side # B75306 or the side mount # B7541315. There is not a fit for the passenger side of your vehicle.

  • Rear and Side Bed Steps for a 2015 Ram 2500
    Bestop truck bed step # B75306 fits the regular, crew, and Mega cabs of the 2015 Ram 2500. I could not find any information on a Maxi Cab model of the Ram. The Bestop step does not fit trucks that have dual exhaust. This step mounts at the back of the truck. For all of the driver side of the truck I recommend # B7541315. It will not fit models with a 5-1/2 foot bed but the exhaust configuration does not matter. Step # B7530715 is for Chevy and GMC trucks so it will not fit your Ram.

  • Step for the Back of a 2016 Ram 2500 Long Bed
    I may have a solution for you but Roadmaster dual receiver # RM-077-4 cannot be used for towing trailer and it only has a tongue weight capacity of 400 pounds so it is not a good option. Hitch extender with step # ST12 would be a good option. The only problem is that since it is an extension it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 33 percent. And it is rated for just 350 pounds tongue weight itself so it isn't a good option either. If you can tell me the year...

  • Bed Step for a 2014 Ram 2500 Crew Cab
    For your 2014 Ram 2500 Crew Cab you can use bed step # B75306 for the back of the bed or # B7541315 for the side of the bed. Both of these products are made by Bestop. The bed side step # B7541315 can only be installed on the driver side of the truck. And the rear step, # B75306, will not work on models that have dual exhaust. I have included a link to all of the step option that will fit your Ram.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendations for 2014 Ram Short Bed
    I really like the Demco Autoslide, part # DM8550034. The Hijacker Autoslide automatically slides rearward during low speed turns, which eliminates the need to exit the truck cab to unlock a manual slider. The hitch has an 18K capacity and a single piece wrap-around jaw that holds the king pin very tightly, so there's almost no rattle or bang to get transferred to the truck during acceleration and braking. For a manually operated slider, I'd recommend the Curt Q20, part # C16536. This hitch...
