Man Step!
 
I have been looking for technical information on the tailgate step without success. Being 6'2" and 265 lbs. I want to know if the step has any max. weight limitations, and if continued use over yrs. will impact the integrity of the tailgate. ( I don't want a bent tailgate) Also, are they a rattler? And lastly will the box seal up tight with this option and a tonneau top on it?
I'm ready to order my truck, but the tailgate step option is still up in the air!:help:

The man step should be plenty stable.

My uncle has one on his 350, he is 6 foot, 250 and he gets in an out no problems. And no it does not rattle.

No rattling, no problems with tonneu covers, shouldnt end up with a bent tailgate(if you did, ford wouldnt be doing this step.

Thanks for the imput!
You have helped me make the decission. My wife will be happy also, because she wanted the step more than I even did.

Would that make it a (wo)man step?;)

Have you seen the ad from GMC where the spokesmen is making disparaging comments about the step gate, like it was somehow unmannely, tell that to an X football player with bad very painful knees that needs the help of these steps to get into the back of his truck. I wonder if I could retro fit my F150 with such a tail gate.

it's funny that chevy made fun of it for being somehow "wussy" but you see from the responses that the big, heavy guys all think it's a great. fail chevy...

p.s. i actually don't mind chevy, i just like my f150 above all half tons!
