Will Pilot Automotive Trailer Hitch Receiver Step Make Contact with Anything Under the Vehicle


Team: We have a 2017 Toyota 4-Runner Limited. It comes standard with a 2x2 hitch and a full spare tire underneath. We are considering the CR-600LED step . Your description and dimensions are quite thorough...thanks. Admittedly I have not yet looked closely under the 4-Runner carriage and was wondering: Do you know if the CR-600 step hits the spare tire if it is dropped to the max depth? Second...are the LEDs replaceable individually or as a full strip? Finally...what is the warranty on the rubber step and the LEDs/connector. Thank you for your time.

We haven't heard of anyone having the Trailer Hitch Step # CR-600LED make contact with a spare tire or anything else under a vehicle. I contacted Pilot Automotive and they said it's not something they've run across either.

To be sure you can measure from the hitch pin hole on your 2017 Toyota 4Runner through the receiver tube to see if you'll have an issue. I can tell you that when using the step in its deepest position the shank will reach about 3-1/2 inches towards the front of the vehicle.
