Video Transcript for WeatherTech BumpStepXL Hitch-Mounted Bumper Step Review

Today we'll be taking a look at WeatherTech's BumpStepXL Hitch-Mounted Bumper Protector.Hey now, check it out. With our camper shell installed and our roof rack on it, we can easily get up here and load and unload it. The WeatherTech BumpStep acts as a bumper guard for minor rear-end collisions. As well as a step to make it easy to get into the back of your truck bed, or if you had an SUV, to get up to your roof rack.It has a 300 pound weight capacity, so it can support both you and anything that you're loading up on your vehicle. the non-slick surface is textured for sure footing, and it's constructed of a composite resin, so it's gonna be durable and resistant to UV rays. Our step measures about 24 inches long, 4 1/4 inches deep, and 3 1/2 inches tall.The step works with two inch hitches and has four depth settings, so you can adjust how far it sticks out from your bumper.

After you slide it in and find the appropriate depth for your vehicle, we'll take the nut that comes in the kit, you'll slide it in the hex-shaped opening on the one side, we'll slide it in the hitch to that depth. We'll install our anti-rattle bolt, this'll thread right into the nut, keeping it secure in your hitch. And after you tighten it down, it'll prevent any vibration and movement.Okay, so if you're gonna be using this as a step, to step up on, you don't want it wobbling around, you want it be nice and sturdy, so you have good, solid footing. And that's it, now you're ready to use it.And that completes our look at WeatherTech's BumpStepXL Hitch-Mounted Bumper Protector.

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.

I was surprised to find out the receiver insert section was made of plastic, the functionality of and quality of BumpStep is nice but not sure how it would hold up as a bumper protector.

Used primarily for protection from minor front end collision. Nothing to report as yet. We also have our truck protected with WeatherTech floor mats.

Very easy install but wish there was option available through etrailer for the security bolt.. bolt makes world of difference so there is no rattle.

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.

It’s okay, it isn’t as strong as advert ed.

This is a great way to utilize a hitch receiver when you're not towing or using it for something else. Makes it super easy and comfortable to get in and out of my Sprinter van.



- WT81BS1XL
by:

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.

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.

This will solve the problem of having no rear bumper on my diesel pusher in case of a rear hit that would take out my radiator.

Step has held up well through what we put it through. No chips , cracks. only thing is it has alot of flex when stepping on it toward to the ends of step.

This will be nothing compared to a bike rack or cargo carrier. If you want to make sure it will not interfere, go with this one # CARR190011B. This folds up so you don't have to remove it every...
