Okay... call me old if you will but I don't like hopping onto my knees to get into the bed of my 3500...

I am looking for something easy, sturdy for me, and that my kids can use to retrieve groceries, adult beverages, etc :p:...

(I am looking for a step to get into the bed when the tailgate is down, not a bed-step.)


What do you guy's have that work well and are sturdy ??


DEBO, Truck-Pal ?????????

X3 for the AMP step. It took me awhile to part with the money for it, but after I used it for the first time I'm glad it got it and wished that I haden't waited so long. Give AMP Research a call and ask about it fitting with the ranch hand bumper. I'm guessing that it will.

X2..... Best investment that I made, powder coated AND made in the USA. Makes it easy to get my 275 lb @ss in and out of the bed of my dually. Bolts right up. Check out J.C. Whitney...that's where I got mine with FREE shipping.

I have a plastic milk type box with plywood bolted on and a course fabric mud flap on top that way I can use it to get in the back and or check under the hood. Works for me. If you put on a strap to it and a small shackle or a quick link to the tie-down in the box, you don't have it slide out of reach.

I just use a 5 gallon bucket turned upside down as a step. I have a Leer topper, so no problem with losing the bucket. The bucket gets used for other uses, too.

x 4 on the Amp bed step. I think it took all of 10 minutes to put it on, and that was with the wife nagging me to get ready to go to dinner. I'm not familiar with the Debo step, but it would be hard to get me to trade my Amp bed step for anything. I'm 6'5" 255lbs, and it's plenty sturdy for me.

Here is a thread I started after I installed my AMP Bed Step w/pics.
http://www.dieselplace.com/forum/showthread.php?t=210986

It reinstall perfectly when I installed my Buckstop rear bumper with no adjustments required but then the new LMM Buckstop rear bumper closely follows the lines of the OEM rear. I can't say how it would work with a Ranchhand rear but it mounts to the two bolts that held the OEM on the drivers side. I did have to use two longer bolts because of the thickness of the metal on the Buckstop.

P.S. I love the step!

where is the best place to buy this step? thanks
I don't know about the best place but I bought mine at 4-Wheel Parts.
I emailed AMP and they sent me a list of distrubutors.

I'm sure it's great and all but the AMP step is just too expensive for me. I am not cheap but jeesh, 250+ bucks for a step :eek:.. ...and the 5-gal bucket is just a lil' too cheap :p:..

I found the DEBO for 129 shipped. The guy I've been dealing with is checking into prices for me for the DEBO and Westin's Step-Pal ??, he said he may be able to get one for me to check out.
