Video Transcript for Review of Westin Hitch Step - Fixed Drop Step - W98TD

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this Westin HDX drop hitch step with the two and a quarter inch drop for two inch hitches. Now this drop hitch step will slide into your two inch hitch receiver and it provides easy access to your truck bed, your ladder rack and your roof rack. The step itself gives you a two and a quarter inch drop, which would provide easier access into any larger vehicles. And the step on it has a nice range tread to it and it provides sure footing. Also one of this show you if we zoom in, if i show you on the underside of the hitch shank, you can see there's this extra bracket, that's a hitch stabilizer bracket, and it offers three threaded holes with one bolt in there, and that installs on the underside of your hitch that can help support the step when you install it and also prevents the step from Raveling.

Now to install this into your hitch receiver, it's pretty quick and easy installation. I wanted to demonstrate. I happened to pull a example of a two inch hitch receiver. You can see right here. There's your two inch hitch receiver and basically when you go to install this, all you have to do is just simply slide this into your two inch hitch receiver.

And if you notice the shank has three different hitch pin holes, So it gets slighted to the correct hole you need for your application. In ours because we can't go back that far, we'll use the first hole and it does require a hitch pinning clip to secure it. Now it does not come with the step you would have to supply this separately. If you already have a pinning clip, it's a five eight inch diameter pin to slide that through there and clip it to secure into place. And again, we do sell those pins separately on our website.

That'll secure it. What's nice once it's secured with that pinning clip, then what you want to do is insert this bolt we talked about on the three threaded holes here on the hitch stabilizer here and on this one would be the closest hole. And then what you do as you just tighten down this bolt and just keep tightening it down and what that does is that'll help support that step up against your hitch receiver. And it also prevent it from moving and causing any type of rambling. Now, this is a nice steel construction has a nice matt back black finish on it which is corrosion resistant.

And also what's nice is this design and appearance of this Westin HDX drop pitch step will match through Westin HDX drop nerve steps that they have. If you happen already purchased those, they might be on the side of your truck. The finish and the design of it, will match that appearance also. Application again, we mentioned fits a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver, few dimensions on this, the overall width from one end to the other end. We put a tape measure on it. It's going to be 34 inches, the step itself. Again, I'm going to zoom in, but just the measurement of the width of just the step itself, it's going to be 15 and a half inches. The depth of the step is gonna be right here four inches deep. And we mentioned the step drop is two and a quarter inches. And the total weight on just the step itself is about 17 pounds. But again, to remove it, all you have to do is pop out your pinning clip unloosen your bolt here, if you had it tightened up and then just slide the whole unit out. That should do it for the review on the Westin HDX drop hitch step with the two and a quarter inch drop for two inch hitches..

The hitch step rattles badly. I made some modifications which helped but I wouldn’t recommend the product.
