Video Transcript for Review of Bestop Nerf Bars - Running Boards - Truck Bed Step - B7541915

Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Bestop Truck Step. It's a side mounted aluminum truck step for the driver's side. Now this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2017 and newer Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty trucks.

Works on the regular cab, crew cab, and super cab models. And on a custom fit part like this, I always like to recommend for you to go to our website, use the fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and it'll show if this'll work for your application. Now, this is a nice spring loaded side step for your truck bed. Quickly extends and retracts with just the push of your foot. So when you extend it, it'll let you easily access toolboxes, ladder racks, and gear that's in the front of your vehicle bed.And when you're done with it, it'll conveniently store beneath your truck when it's not in use.

Has a nice rugged stepping platform. It's constructed of a non-skid extruded aluminum with corrosion resistant, black powder coat finish. It does use the aluminum alloy linkages to help control movement, resist corrosion. See how it opens, extends, and then retracts. It has high strength, steel mounts that'll ensure durability.

And it is a very simple installation. Comes with all the included brackets and hardware you need. Nice set of instructions. There's no drilling required. Basically, this'll bolt directly to your truck's frame and it's designed to mount in front of your rear wheel on the driver's side.Weight capacity on this is 300 pounds.

Want to give you a few dimensions on just the step itself. You can see when it extends out just like that, then it retracts in. So the length of it, it's going to be right at about 11 and a half inches long. The width on it is right about six and a half inches wide for the step. And again, right now you can see it's retracted, so when you go to put your foot on this to extend it right out, you'll be able to step on it and reach your truck bed. When you're done, just push it with your foot, out of the way.But that should do it for the review on this Bestop Truck Step side mounted aluminum truck step for the driver's side.

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.

I should've probably given five stars. My only complaint is its not completely ridged when you stand on it, but I am very pleased and will purchase again.

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.

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.

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


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


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.

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.

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....)

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.



- B7531315

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Literature says 4 hours and difficult install but that is not correct. I got steps for both sides and the install was on your back but easy especially with a head lamp. I did not need the shims for my Ram 1500 as the steps retracted nicely just under the bumper.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


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.

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


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.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Mine is a 2012 Tundra so I had to skip several steps. The rest only took 30 minutes or so to complete. Works as advertised and no problem with my 250 lbs.

The step works as advertised. The mounting bolts are a easy to remove but you have to reinstall them on a blind.


Comments
The product works well and provides a much needed step to get up in the truck bed. I use it mostly when pulling our fifth wheel trailer.

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


This is my second truck with this step installed in the back. They have been very helpful with getting into the bed of the truck. I have had many people come up to me with the first truck and ask about them. I installed the step the day it was delivered.

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


I used to keep a very short step ladder in the bed of my truck so it wouldn't be so hard on me to climb into the bed. That wasn't always so easy to do as it wasn't always within reach. With this step, it's always ready and waiting. It tucks under the bumper and you hardly know it's even there!!! I love it, it operates hands free too! Yee Hah! The only problem I see with it is you have to push it down on only the right hand side of the step pad, otherwise it won't come down. The other problem is you have to use the very tip of your shoe to get enough bite on it to get it to swing down, that is no problem for me, but if a person and heavy boots on, might not be able to get down with your toe. But all in all, I still love this!

Review from a similar TrekStep in Truck Bed Step


Product is great! Instructions were precise but I chose to not follow them as directed. I modified the bumper bracket & reinstalled it to maintain maximum strength. It would have been better if they had given the customer the option of modifying the bracket instead of “storing it for future use.” By modifying the bracket in place, several steps could be eliminated and the customer would maintain a stronger bumper. Also, I was disappointed the etrailer did not let me know that product was not in stock before ordering. The process did keep me informed when item was expected, when it was shipped and delivered. Thank you for a great product.


Comments
I actually purchased a fold up under bumper step. I simplified the installation procedure by not removing the internal bumper support and only notched it for clearance. We use it almost every time we drive the truck. It is a very well designed and useful product.
