We mounted this on the front bumper of a long hooded dump truck for opening and closing hood. So far so good works as it should

Even thought I can't install this till spring in my boat, I already know it is a quality item. My friend has one to step down into his boat from the deck. It is very well made and will serve the purpose as a foldaway step. Company was quick in shipping and the item was well packaged.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


It fits our 2017 Transit 150 van, with a Curt hitch from etrailer, perfectly. From the pics you will see it looks like it was designed for this vehicle. It cuts the factory distance to the step bumper in half. My old knees like it. My shins like. . .love the fold up position. Step is big enough that you can hit it stepping around a load in the van. Provides solid footing even when stepping off center. Two issues: 1) The price. A bit steep compared to price of a hitch. But if it helps save my knees it's worth it. 2) The mount is loose in the hitch receiver. Has a tendancy to wobble. Concerned about this surprising others. So I took a 7/8" id flat washer and cut it down to 2" wide with flats on oposite sides. I put it in from the front of the receiver and wedged it under the step mount. This stablized the step. And when it comes time to remove the step I'll be pulling it away from the washer, undoing the wedge.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


Love it, great strong step. Needed little grinding on nuts that hold main plate to tongue assembly, they are too close to hitch entry point, make assembly wider! Pin hole barely lined up due to nuts hitting hitch and after grinding nuts slightly hole was barely lined up. Chamfered leading edge of my locking pin and drove it in with hammer, will have to drive out to tow so pain if its on an off a-lot. Gives it a tight e rattle free fit tho! Don’t expect slip on from package, needs fitting..

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


It has worked very well. Very pleased with the product. My kids now have an easier time stepping up into the back of my land cruiser. My only "complaint" is that it doesn't fit perfectly tight in the hitch and will rotate very slightly. But, I have never had a problem with it rattling when I drive. Would definitely purchase again.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


Yes, it is expensive..but as the cliche says, "You get what you pay for". This step has performed flawlessly, including the time a 30 pound log rolled out and hit it (open) when I opened the tailgate. Having seen and tried the cheaper alternatives (which I find small and somewhat less stable that the CARR product), I recommend it. That said, I have two little issues with it. 1) The foot plate does not stand vertical unless the assembly screws are tightened all the way down. In doing that, moving the foot plate to horizontal then requires two hands, not a foot to push down. 2) The holes in the mounting bracket (where the retainer bolt goes through the hitch receiver) do not line up with my Draw-Tite hitch. if it was drilled about 1/2 inch shorter, the back plate of the step would be tight against the hitch receiver. Currently, it moves slightly, which is a little disconcerting when stepping down from the truck bed with a mountain bike in your hands. Also, wish it was of thicker steel. Okay, there may be three issues, the CARR symbol looks like a Raiders football team logo, so being from Kansas City, it gets some comments. Would I buy one again...in a heartbeat. And yes, I do have a locking hitch bolt, otherwise, I would be buying another one due to theft! Lastly, make sure you put the step up when not is use. If you walk into with your shin, you'll only do that once.

Still hanging on! I would recommend it. It’s not the cheapest, but it will probably outlast the truck.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


Very well made just received it today, perfect for the transit style van just the right size. The step is at a comfortable split between the ground and the bumper. It is just what I was looking for. Thank you.

Love this folding step I’m a contractor and use it at least 10 times a day 5 days a week carrying all kinds of materials heavy and or bulky with no issues at all. Also did not need to add shims or anything like that it has slight movement Wiggle but enough to be a concern. Very well made and strong. Worth every penny Thank you for a great product.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


I've now had this about a year. I did have to shim it up to keep it from rattling in the hitch, but overall I’m very happy with it. No issues with it folding up and down. I don’t keep it on 24/7 but I do take it with me several times a year when I go camping, it gets covered in mud and still has enough friction on the step itself to not feel slick at all and the folding mechanism seems to have held up just fine. I tend to sort of "land" on it when I'm getting out, I'm 240 lbs and it seems solid. I would buy it again.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


I received this receiver step yesterday, installed it this morning on my P.U. truck. It will let me step up & put things over the tailgate without having to get a step stool. Then I can fold the step up so I don't hit my shin when I walk past the rear of the truck. It also looks nice.


Comments
I still like it very much.

The Carr Mega Step went on easily. Works perfect. The people at Etrailer were great. They were very efficient and always replied to my questions immediately. They didn't say "oh you have to talk to so and so about your order". They referred to my order immediately. Thank you, Bob in Houston, Tx.

This is my 2nd Mega Step. The other step is on a work vehicle for 2 years (no issues what so ever). Great product. That’s why I need one for my personal truck.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


The insert of the step into the hitch was very loose. I had to drive two small nails between the insert and hitch holder which means the step is almost permanent and would require a hammer to remove. The insert needs to be a square and shims should be provided to secure in place.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


First of all let me say that this step is well engineered and very well built. I only have two concerns. Number one, I found the spring retainer screws were loose. Upon fighting them I found the step would not stay folded. There was no tension on the spring. The screws needed to be left somewhat loose in order for the spring to engage the step. To solve this problem so the screws would not work themselves out I installed a lock nut on each screw. The second concern was the fit into my hitch receiver. This I solved by adding some shims until the fit was satisfactory. Overall I am pleased with the looks and function of the step.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


This product arrived in good shape and was just as advertised. This step is being used on a 2013 Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van with the factory hitch. Installed easy and works perfect for getting in an out of the back doors.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


The fit in the receiver is kind of sloppy so it is going to cause a rattle when driving. The countersink for the assembly bolt holes does not match the angle of the shoulder of the bolt supplied. When you tighten the mounting bolts the head distorts thus locking the allen wrench in the bolt head. This makes the allen wrench extremely difficult to remove from the bolt. Times 4 bolts. I would buy another but only if I needed the ability to fold up so my truck will fit in a garage, or to keep my wife from running into the step.

I didn't use for the intended purpose. I used it for the first step off our pool deck into the pools steps. Works great.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


Very solid construction and great quality. One issue is that the bar that goes into the receiver should be longer to accommodate vehicles that have the receiver deeper under the rear bumper. I have a 2011 Mercedes Benz GL-450 and at the first set of holes the step is not fully locked in the upright position, it rests against the bump cover. I can accept this but not for $135. Carr does not carry a longer bar.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


As always, Carr makes a very good product. Had Carr Super Hoops on my previous truck and never had a problem. However, if Carr could make one slight improvement on the Mega Step, it should be to make the part that slips into the receiver, so that it would be just a bit more snugly fit. It has a little wiggle room when installed, allowing the step to have a bit of side to side movement. Nothing major, just a bit annoying. I plan to insert a shim to tighten the installation for my satisfaction. All in all, a good product.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


Well made and sturdy. Haven't had a chance to use it much yet. Make sure to check the two small spring screws when you install. Both of mine were loose. Only minor complaint is it could be a tighter fit in the hitch. Mine wobbles around quite a bit.

Review from a similar Mega Step in Truck Bed Step


THE ONLY ITEM THAT WAS NOT UP TO PAR WAS THE FIT INTO THE RECEIVER, IT WAS NOT A TIGHT FIT AND WILL RATTLE WHEN VEHICLE IS MOVING. IN READING REVIEWS, I NOTICED THIS SAME COMPLAINT. I WOULD SUGGEST RE-ENGINERING THE PART THAT FITS THE HITCH RECEIVER TO HAVE A MORE SNUG FIT, THEN IT WOULD BE PERFECT.
