    If your going into the bed of your truck your not grabbing one light fluffy thing-a-ma-jig you'll be grabbing heavy stuff ie 2x10's cement bags load of gravel or stone, and that 'man step says it is rated at 500 lbs but I highly doubt that considering thats the weight rating of the tailgate itself

    Be kinda hard to do that now that Howie made fun of it in the ad. I wouldn't want it built in. There are plenty of after market options that fit in the hitch.

    No way would I ever buy a truck with a man-step, and if it even did have it, I would never use it or I would just take it out.

    No thanks...even with the truck lifted...stand on the hitch or bumper if you need to.

    I kinda always thought it was more effort to get the man step out and use it than it was worth. But just my opinion.
