Okay. I admit that a couple decades ago, I thought they were stupid.

Now, since I just had to buy a slightly lifted pickup 'cause it looked "cool", and I now am trying to make some personal fleet decisions about what will actually work at the deer lease, with my aging body, what does the THF say is the best after-market, bolt-on tailgate step?

And I'll also admit, the ones with a handrail catch my eye. up

(I'm just too tired to do a search on this subject.)

I sold liftgates. 'Looking for something a tad bit simpler.

The new GMC is my first suggestion. If not then I would purchase a sturdy four foot ladder. If not get ready to spend some $$$$.

I keep a short step ladder in the bed of my truck to use when I need it.

I have a step built in on the superduty. Itís too short.

Little Giant has a good little step ladder/work stand that I like.

I just step up on the trailer ball, then climb over the tailgate.

I had one of these on my 2008 Silverado 2500 and loved it. One of the things I really liked about it is you could drop the tailgate, push the step down with your foot, step on it, use the top of the bed as a handle and step right onto the tailgate. When you are done, step down on the step, again using the bedrail as a handle, close the tailgate and then kick the step to return it to the stored position.

Overall, this is likely not a huge market. So you won't find a lot of great solutions since firms will be less likely to invest in top notch solutions.
