On the truck. Useful step when cleaning rear lid and a small bumper

Great Idea, I had considered something like this - never saw one that mounted this way. Is it possible to mount with the bracket on bottom -- no hitch ball - for a cleaner look.

EDIT - you were posting finished pictures as I posted this
Your pictures answer my questions. I am sure the step would have to also be turned upside down and the bottom probably doesn't look very nice, plus would still have the hole for hitch that would need to be plugged.

it uses the trailer hitch ball to secure it for left to right movement.

Thanks - When I posted that your other assembly pictures hadn't posted ? Just the final product - now I see the whole picture of how it works.

Still think it looks great - especially with the hitch painted black also.
Good job

Thanks for the post Benny. We just ordered one and I am sure Old Yella will look real pretty with this hanging off her tail... :yellow: :cool

For just the step you could sacrifice a ball by cutting just above the part needed to stabilized the step. Then to tow just change balls without removing the step. If you aren't going to tow you could add a step plate to smooth it out.

AWESOME MOD! I immediately went out and bought one! Found it at Home Depot for $29. Picked up a new Reese 2" chrome ball ($8) and a can of flat black automotive paint ($6) to refurbish my hitch (salt air is the devil)! Going to love having a bit more bumper in the back! THANKS for the pics!
Cheers, Carl
