Review of the Pilot Bully Black Bull LED Hitch-Mounted Step


Today we're taking a look at the Pilot Bully Black Bull LED hitch mounted step for inch and a quarter and 2-inch hitches. Part number BBS-1104L. The hitch step is helpful as it slides in your receiver giving you easy access to your truck bed, roof rack or cargo area of your truck or SUV. Let's go over a few quick features of the Bully hitch mounted step. You'll notice how there's a pad up here on top of the step and it has a pattern built into it to keep you from slipping off when you're using the step. So when you step up on it you get grip and your foot doesn't slip off. It also has rubber end caps on both sides to protect your bumper when putting it in so that you don't get any scratches on your bumper. There's also an LED strip across the back here that is tied in with the 4 flat wiring on your vehicle that lights up when your running lights are on as well as the brake lights and it does function with the turn signals, but it doesn't go right or left. It just flashes when the turn signal's on for either the right side or the left side. Let's go ahead and show you how easy it is to use the Bully hitch step. Simply put your foot there and you can step up into the bed.

It also aids in stepping out of the bed as well. Some vehicles may not have a step bumper like this one does. Let's go ahead and show you how the LED light functions on this vehicle. We'll go ahead and start here by turning on our running lights. As you can see here, the LED strip lights up. We'll go ahead and turn our running lights off and now we'll step on our brake. Again the LED strip lights up with the brake lights. Now we'll turn on our left blinker.

As you can see here the strip is flashing, but it doesn't direct and show that it's a left blinker, but it is flashing in conjunction with the left blinker. Now for the right side. With this adapter sleeve on the top of it, it allows you to use it in a 2-inch receiver such as this one. You take the adapter sleeve off, you can use it in an inch and a quarter receiver. To use it in the inch and a quarter receiver, you will need a pin such as this which is part number PC2. This is for a class 1 and class 2 receiver.

To use it in a 2-inch receiver such as this one we put the adapter sleeve back on and you'll need to supply this clip here which is part number PC3 and the clips do not come with the Bully hitch step. That is a separate item. You'll also notice if you're using a 2-inch receiver, there is 3 different adjustment holes that allow you to adjust the depth that the step is inside the receiver, too. Depending on your vehicle will depend on which hole you'll need to go to. Now we're ready to go ahead and put the Bully hitch step into position. Go ahead and slide it in here and we'll choose which hole lines up best.

Take our hitch pin as well as the clip to lock the step into position then take our 4-flat wiring, line it up with the 4 flat on the truck and that's all there is to it to installing the Bully hitch step. The hitch step is made of a heavy duty steel construction for long lasting life. It does have a matte black powder coat finish that delivers a rugged look as well as resists corrosion. There is a 350-pound weight capacity on the hitch step and it has an overall dimension of 18 3/4 inches long by 3 3/4 inches tall. This hitch step does come with a 90-day warranty. With that, that'll conclude our quick look at the Pilot Bully Black Bull LED hitch mounted step for inch and a quarter and 2-inch hitches, part number BBS-1104L. .
