I didn't get the stock tailgate step so I thought would snag this from amazon.

It was very easy to install and seems well built. It uses only a spring inside the folding mechanism to hold it in place so you don't have to worry about a strut going out over time. The effort used to push it down is higher then it is to push it up so I haven't had it fall down while driving. I didn't add any of the spacers it came with to lower the step a quarter inch but I'm thinking about it so that my foot can more easily get on top to push it down. Right now it sits pretty snug to the bumper.

That's pretty cool! Does it hang down enough to catch on something if you were offroad?

The first photo shows how flush it sits. I don't do any serious off-roading but I couldn't imagine it being an issue as you would hit your hitch at the same time.

By the way this is from Bestop. I have not used the other mentioned brand.

Ever heard of a departure angle? This truck doesn't have much of one but I'd hate to order this and have a bracket behind the step hanging down 5"-6".
