Video Transcript for Pilot Automotive Hitch Step - Fixed Step - CR-605 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number CR-605. This is the Pilot Automotive stainless steel trailer hitch receiver step for 1-1/4" and 2" trailer hitches. The hitch step is going to mount into the hitch of your vehicle. You can use it to gain access to those luggage racks up on your roof, gain access into your truck bed, cargo areas, or you can mount it in a front-mounted hitch and gain easier access under the hood of you vehicle. With this installed, it's also going to act as a strong bumper guard. It's got the attractive round tube styling. It's constructed of a stainless steel construction, and it's topped with a non-slip, high-impact plastic step pad. It's going to come with two shims.

That way once you have this installed in the receiver tube of your hitch, you can jam these in there. It's going to help take out any excess room that you may have between the shank of the hitch step and the inside wall of the receiver tube of your hitch. If you want to use it for a 2" by 2" hitch, all you have to do is slide on the sleeve. Now it's going to fit well into your 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver. A couple measurements to go over real quick. Taking a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the step, you can see here at this pin hole, it's going to be about 7".

It's got three different pin holes to choose from, so it's going to extend out from 7" to 9", roughly. If we take our measurement from the front of the step to that first pin hole, it's going to measure more like 6-3/4". From the furthest point out of the step to that center pin hole, it's about 8". Back to this one, it's about 9-1/2". Overall length, it's going to be about 10-3/4" from the front to the back.

Taking a look at the overall width, measuring from edge to edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about 18". The tubing on this is going to be 3" in diameter. The step pad is going to give us an overall length measurement of 9". Here at the narrow point it's going to give us a width of 2-5/8". Then here at the widest point, front to back, that's going to give us a measurement of about 3-1/8". This hitch step has a capacity of 350 pounds.

A few more measurements to go over. You want to make sure that you have enough clearance at the back of your vehicle. If we measure from the closest point of the step that first pin hole, that's going to give us a measurement of about 2-1/8". To that center pinhole is going to be about 3-1/2". To the furthest out pin hole, it's going to be about 5". If you're going to be using this in an 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver and don't have a pin and clip to secure it inside your hitch, you can find one here at etrailer.com, using part number PC2. I you're going to be installing it in your 2" receive tube, you can use part number PC3. That's going to be your 5/8" pin and clip. If you want to use a pin and lock, you can find that with part number 7683 for 2" receivers. It's a really simple installation. All you have to do is take the step, slide it into the receiver tube of your hitch until your pin holes line up. Again, you have three mounting options, so you can choose whatever one works best for your application. I'm just going to take our pin and clip. I'm using part number PC3. We're going to stick it through there and secure it with the clip. You can see back here that we have a little bit of play in our hitch. We can take one of our shims. It does have some 3M adhesive tape on the back so you can permanently mount it to the sleeve. We're simply just going to . You can wedge that in there. You can trim these down. You can really do whatever it is that you'd like to with them just to help alleviate any of that rattle. Mount on the front, on the sides, whatever is best going to suit your application. That's going to do it our review of part number CR-605. This is the Pilot Automotive stainless steel trailer hitch receiver step. .

This is exactly what we had been looking for our Subaru Forester. Easy to set up and was ready to go. I already had a sturdy pin lock and reccomend ordering one if you would like to have this on your vehicle. 508269

This product is well designed, well made, and has an excellent fit and finish (the anti-squeak wedges are a nice touch). HOWEVER, this product does not fit my Honda Element or my CRV (yup, bought two!) without modification. As delivered the step hangs out WAY too far from the bumper due to the lack of depth in the Honda reciever (2 diff. brand recvs., same specs.) I'm beginning to understand why they offer a lighted model. I lopped off about 3 inches; lined up the holes, pinned it, wedged it, and it now looks and works great. A neat add-on for my Hondas, but be advised they may need a bit of TLC to get right. 150993

Love my new hitch for my 2019 Toyota Rav Adventure. At first, I didn’t think it would slide between bumper and exhaust system, but it did. My wife helped hold one side while a car jack was used to lift hitch into position. I used a rubber mallet to get into position to install bolts. About a half hour later, hitch installed! Only concern was when delivered, the box was split open and the hitch was sliding out. Thankfully, no damage, bump step and locking pin were still inside box and hitch bolts were taped inside receiver, otherwise they would have been long gone! 644133

Bought this trailer hitch step to get to the top of my Subaru which has a 1 1/4" hitch. I also have a pickup with a 2" hitch therefore I can use this for both vehicles - excellent. The product is of really good quality and reasonably priced. Shipping was fast and free. Thank you. I am quite pleased 644999

Not easy finding a 1 1/4 " bar, but etrailer had this one that did the job. Price was great, and the step bump fit the tee. Also, had the 2" receiver adapter just in case I change vehicles in the future. Very happy with the purchase. 431695

Excellent Product, my receiver has 1 1/4 inch receiver has 1/2 inch pin hole, the Bully step has 5/8 inch pin holes, the shims that came with the step help a lot, I ordered the above lock, because it is 1/2 inch diameter , the one I have is 3/8, I think this will solve the rattle problem. 428423

Excellent product for those with less than 2" hitch. As previous owner of 2" hitch step I was hard pressed to find a substitute for the smaller Chevy Equinox. Etrailer product fit the bill with sleeve to accommodate with ease and accuracy. 404042

Item arrived quickly and was packaged to prevent damage in transit. The product is 'as advertised' and priced reasonably. What could I complain about? 370788

by:

I love the hitch step. I looks a lot better than leaving the ball hitch on all the time and still protects the vehicle from those close calls when someone behind you is not totally paying attention. It also is a great quick step for just grabbing something quickly out of the truck bed and looks great with my Nerf Bars. I just wish the 2 inch adapter fit a little snugger into the receiver. I could use the provided shims and they were too thick but a couple wraps of duct tape solved the rattle. Great price too. 343148

I plain on using this Bumper Gard to protect my bumper from damage. I just had someone back into my bumper and cause over a Thousand Dollars worth of damage. Do to its construction this bumper Gard looks like it will work. I will use this bumper gard when I get my car back from the body shop. 308661

Looks solidly built but the black caps keep falling off the ends. I lost one already even though I silicone it on. Not sure why they are not permanently glued in place. 187359
