Are you maybe thinking about an attachment for a 2" front receiver hitch? I believe I've seen these that are like you mention.Tech JJ said:The one that I remember is only slightly larger than a license plate. It is hinged on the bottom so that when folded down the plate is facing the ground and the back of the plate is a piece of steel that you can step on. I don't remember what was used to support the weight (if it was a hinge or a stopping block). I almost want to say the step surface was diamond plate.
I am sure someone has one . . . maybe on an older truck.
