Video Transcript for WeatherTech Hitch Step - Fixed Step - WT81BS1XL Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll take a look at the WeatherTech bump-step XL hitch mounted bumper protector and step for two inch hitches. This sturdy step gives you quick, easy access to the rear of your truck or SUV, makes it real easy to climb into and out of your truck bed or to reach your SUV's roof rack. This can also be installed on a front mount hitch to gain easy access under the hood. It provides a nice, sure footing with a large anti-slip surface, and with it installed, it also acts as a bumper guard, which helps protect against bumps and scratches.We're looking at a really nice composite resin construction, it's very strong and durable, it's a nice sturdy step. Also, that material stands up to the sun's harsh rays for a longer life, so you don't have to worry about fading or anything like that. You see the nice structural support here on the bottom.

And it also has the matte black finishing to deliver a really nice rough, rugged look to the unit.Really simple installation. It simply just slides into your two-inch hitch receiver. And then as you can see, you have four pinholes to choose from. You can choose whatever one works best for your application. It does come with installation instructions, and the necessary hardware.

Now this hardware is anti-rattle, so it's threaded, so you have a nut on this end, which would go into one of the slots here. And then you place it into your hitch, line up the pinholes, then you take the bolt, and you take it through, and you tighten it with a wrench, or a socket wrench. And as you get that tight, that'll take out any wobble or rattle or any play from within the receiver tube, from within the hitch.The product's made in the USA, it is designed for a two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receiver. And it has a weight capacity of 300 pounds. Taking a look at the overall measurements of the unit, when we look at the overall height, we're looking at about three-and-a-half inches tall.

Flat form depth. At the deepest point, which is pretty much right here in the center. This is your footing area, it's gonna measure about four inches to four and 1/8th inches, so a nice deep design there. And then when it comes to the overall length of the unit, measuring edge to edge this direction, that gives us a measurement of about 23 and a half to 23 and 5/8ths inches long. The product's also covered with a limited lifetime warranty.And that's gonna do it for today's look at the WeatherTech bump-step XL hitch mounted bumper protector and step for two-inch hitches..

IT IS WELL BUILT AND LOOKS GOOD. BUT I STILL RETURNED IT BECAUSE IT GOES ON A NEW 2019 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE WHICH CAME EITH A 7000 lb hitch. . I DID NOT BOLT IT ON BUT BECAUSE OF ITS HEIGHT, IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR MY WIFE TO STAND ON IT. ME ALSO, TO HIGH ALSO QUICKLY LEARNED THAT THERE ARE ZERO HAND HOLDS AT THE REAR OF THE JEEP. ONLY THING IS A WIPER BLADE. NOT A GOOD IDEA TO GRAB THAT. It appears to be super strong etc. 579788

Fits perfectly since it has multiple mounting holes. Non skid coating seems to work very well, even when wet. It comes with a bolt in case you don't want to use your own pin. I leave mine installed, so I didn't used the supplied bolt, but rather my old locking pin. 589452

My wife wanted something that would help her step into our Travato motorhome via the back door. It's built on a RAM Promaster and entering through the back doors requires a pretty good step up to get in. When I saw the BumpStep, it looked like it would make getting in easier, so I figured I'd give it a try. It arrived this morning, took about five minutes to install using the included hardware and it works even better than expected. The only thing you need to install is a 15/16" socket. The step is super sturdy and makes it so much easier to step in and out of the van through the back doors. Would highly recommend. 607318

We have not used product as of this time (weather). The original transaction was efficient and straightforward. Information was precisely what I needed, and was delivered before promised date. Product is to assist owner to reach roof, for removing snow &ice, and protecting rear of vehicle. 604891
