Video Transcript for Review of Bestop Truck Bed Step - Bumper Step - BE97HR

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we'll take a look at this Bestop TrekStep rear-mounted driver side truck step. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2019 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500, 2500, and 3500 crew cab trucks, and on a custom fit part like this, I do recommend for you to go to our website and use the fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle, that'll show you if this will work for your application. Now, this is a nice spring-loaded step for truck bumpers.

It'll quickly extend and retract with just a push of your foot. And once you extend it out like this, it'll let you easily access ladder racks or gear that's in your vehicle bed. Weight capacity on this step is 300 pounds, and then when you're not using it, you just take your foot, push it up like that, and it'll conveniently store beneath your truck bumper when it's not in use. It is designed to work with single exhaust only. It does have a nice side-angle movement when it opens that moves it away from the bumper, so it'll let you use the step whether your tailgate is up or down and it leaves your hitch receiver free for towing or for hitch-mounted accessories.

It does use high strength aluminum alloy linkage arms and the mounting brackets right here that are included are aluminum alloy, also. This is a nice rugged stepping platform. It is constructed of a non-skid, extruded aluminum. All these parts have a nice black powder coat finish on them to ensure durability. And it is a very simple installation.

As we mentioned, it comes with the included brackets. No drilling is required. It'll bolt directly to your truck's bumper. And again, when you go to extend it out, just push down with your foot and it'll extend out, you can step up on it. And then when you're done, push it back up with your foot and it'll spring load up underneath the truck bumper.

The dimension on the platform itself, that you're gonna step on, the length of it from one end to the other, is right at 11 1/2 inches, and the width of it is gonna be right at about 6 1/2 inches wide. Then again, just to show you how this will operate once it's installed, push down for it to extend out and then push up for it to retract. But that should do it for the review on this Bestop TrekStep rear-mounted driver side truck step..

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Purchased the Trek Step for my 2018 Ram 2500 Mega Cab. It took my about fifteen minutes to install the step following the instruction provided. All mounting parts were included and only needed a few common tools. The step extends and retracts easily and feels secure while stepping up and descending the truck bed. The step is made of aluminum and feels to be made strong. Recommended if you need a little help stepping into your high truck bed.


Comments
Step is working great. No more jumping up to access the truck bed. The step spring has held without issues. Great design for taller trucks.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


I’ve had this step for over a year and it has worked great. It still works as it did the first day I put it on. It looks like new too. It was easy to install. If you don't have a step assist to get into the bed of your truck this will do the trick. Well worth the money.


Comments
It’s been 2 years since I installed this step and it still works great. Even in the Vermont winters with salt it’s still looks as if it was new.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Works as designed. I love how much easier it is to get in the bed of the truck with this step. Only 4 out of 5 stars because I wish the spring was tighter holding it up when stored against the bumper. Seems like the step may unfold on a big bump/pot hole.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


The TrekStep is well made and works great. It was purchased to make getting in/out of the bed with the tailgate down easier and safer. I only gave it 4 stars because of some unnecessary difficulty installing the it.

The provided M6-1.0 x 75 mm Socket Cap Screw is only partially threaded. As a result, unless one or both of the 1/4" Spacers are used, the Cap Screw will not seat against the Mounting Bracket as indicated in step 3 of the installation instructions (see attached photo).

I wanted the step to be as close as possible to the bumper in the retracted position so I had to install the Spacers on top of the Mounting Bracket instead of between the Mounting Bracket and Linkage Assembly as indicated in step 7 of the installation instructions.

If the Cap Screw had been threaded like the Hex Head Bolts, I would not have had to use the Spacers like I did to make it fit.

Great product quality worth the price. But installation is somewhat difficult for 1 person to do while laying out in the driveway. Not everyone has access to a lift. Took some doing but it's finally installed & in use.


Comments
Still fully functional. Great product.

looks and works great. Easy to install. This new 2022 dodge ram 2500 is 2 inch higher than my last truck. This step made a big different in getting both in and out of the bed.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Purchased as "used" or "damaged" from etrailer for a significantly discounted price. Arrived in good condition, other than some wear and tear on the box, everything else looked like new and was complete. Installation was relatively simple, 30 - 45 minutes including several adjustment increments. Overall I am well pleased with this step, it certainly makes getting into the bed of my RAM 2500 much easier! I have made quite a few purchases from etrailer over the last several years and find their product choices, website, technical information, shipping, and customer service to be truly superior.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Great product! I call it my "old man step". When the tailgate is down on my Tundra, it was difficult to climb in and out of the bed. This step did the trick. It took me about an hour to install. It looks good and folds away neatly.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Bought this as a step for my 2018 Ram 2500. The bed of this truck is higher off the ground than I remember my F250 being. You can climb into it (not a pretty sight), but this step makes it way easier for me (and everyone else) to get in with ease. I'm one year in and it seems to be working as well as it did the first day. No rust or change in the spring action of the step.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Great product and fast shipping. The TrekStep parts were easy to put together. My only comment is the problem I had trying to bolt it onto the bumper frame. One of the bolt holes in the bumper frame was to small for the bolts that with the TrekStep so I had to drill it out.Trying to get it installed onto the frame was not going good so I took it to my mechanic who was kind enough to put my truck on the hoist and install it for me.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


This is a quality product. It is solidly manufactured and functions exactly as it should. Install was fairly easy except for one minor flaw which is the reason I only gave four stars. I can now get into the bed of my truck with the flick of a foot instead of jumping on the tailgate and rolling in. The kit comes with spacers to allow you to adjust how far you want the step from the bumper. The problem is if you don’t want to use the spacers the cap screw threads are too short and the screw will not seat. This is a problem that hasn’t been addressed as I read other reviews that mentioned it and my truck is a 2018. I solved the issue by using one of the spacers and adding an extra washer which allowed the screw to be tightened.

I've had this on my 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 for about 6 months. I've used it many times -- works great!

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Installed on a 2014 GMC 1500 Sierra w/o the step bumper. Installation was longer than the instructions indicted, but that was due to the manufacturer's bolts. The bolts for installing on the frame should be 1/4' long due to the design of the step. It was tough getting the nuts threaded. Would be better if the bolts were the same as OEM bumper fasteners. Other than that installation was easy.

Reviews only lets you upload one photo???

Step works as advertised and I am pleased with it so far, but I will have to wait and see our it weathers a Canadian winter in Manitoba. (Road salt, slush, snow, sand, etc....)

This was not an easy install on my 2020 F350 SuperDuty because the attachment point was not properly identified in the instructions. I made it work, but I don't think it is as sturdy as it should be.

This was not an easy install and the step is not secured as sturdy as it should be. I am careful not to put too much weight on it. The attachment points on my 2020 F350 were difficult to locate and I had to get customer service to help. It's working but I am careful not to put too much weight on it.

The box came without damage and the product was simple to install once I collected the right tools. I've only had it on my truck for a couple of hours but so far it has met all expectations and helps my wife and I get into my elevated 4x4 bed.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


The Bestop Trekstep was easy install. I'm 65 and did it in half an hour. The step easily flips down and back up with my foot and cuts the stretch up to the tailgate in half. Very solid feel to it. No flex I can detect at all. Very substantial fastening system to the truck.

After one year the step works great, and looks great. No issues. Makes getting into the back of the bed easy.
