    Default Avalanche / Escallade receiver step

    This is pretty cool, it's advertised as a way to get into the truck tent, but it could be used just to get into the back I guess.




    Step easy into the pick-up truck tent with the TruckStep. The support strut slides easily from underneath vehicle to provide step platform. Locks in place in and out. Platform flips to horizontal position and locks into place Installs in seconds Heavy duty (500 lb capacity) No slip step surface Stores conveniently. Fit in 2" receiver mounted on the back of most vehicles.

    I’ve seen something like that advertised aftermarket , before. Just slips in existing hitch.

    Interesting idea, I always just step on the trailer ball myself. But for those who don’t have one, or want to bang their leg on the trailer ball every time they walk by it. It sounds and looks like a good idea.

    And one Big Pain in the Ass When it Doesn’t.

    If they didn't change the style of bumper in the first place, that step wouldn't be necessary. Oh well.

    Oh, and I hate it when I'm not paying attention and slam my leg into the ball on the hitch.

    The nerve damage is my favorite part. I slammed my shin into the ball/hitch on one of my previous vehicles, and now the front of my shin is numb all the time.
