I put one from a 2008 super duty on my 2002 f150 and love it. Im only 19 but with a little lift on the truck and using the bed a lot its awesome. All my buddies thought I was stupid for getting it but turns out they now think its badass.

Chevy guys are just jealous they cant have one..

Default Rear bumper step

Amp research has a step that attaches to existing homes on your bumper and pushes down with your foot and retracts with the nudge of your foot also. I have a 06 f150 lifted a little with 35" tires and I've been looking at the step for a couple weeks now but I am finally going to get it. It's about $200 bucks and it rucks up to your bumper. When you need to get into your truck you just push it down and the weight limit is up to 400 lbs i believe. Checkn it out at AMP research.com

Mine is not a "rattler" but it squeaks like a SOB!

Going back to the dealer tomorrow morning so THEY can deal with it.

Don't know about the weight capacity of the step, but the tailgate handles me stepping in and out without feeling strained at all, and I'm 6'4", and a little over 300 lbs. Have thought about adding a step to make it easier for the wife to get in and out of the bed.

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!
I love that step.. We have it on my dads 2010 larit 4x4... His truck I a lot taller and me only being 17 I have bad shoulders and a bad knee( foot ball) but I use that step every day just loading stuff.. Even loading my gun case. It is worth the 700$ ( I think that is how much the option was). Also if u have a little kid my sister use to use it as a step an it is a great foot rest also. But it is call like a tail gate step
