There isn't much room between the bumper face & the hitch. And the reverse light! Space is tight.

Re: Aluminess Rear Bumper Step

I need something like that to get to the bottom step of my side ladders.

Maybe the factory F150 retractable step would work in that spot?

Re: Aluminess Rear Bumper Step

I could be interested in this. I typically use a step ladder to load bikes on top of the Aluminess Deluxe box. Maybe this would take care of that need.

I really don't need an electric step and something like that which just slides out and can be secured in for off road travel would work. BTW I didn't know Ford had a step like that. Worth looking into, thanks.

Re: Aluminess Rear Bumper Step

it would be nice if the step could turn towards back of box when swing arm is open to give you more surface to load bikes on top of box

Re: Aluminess Rear Bumper Step

I should know better than to joke around about additions to peoples Vans. Since we all have different uses and needs for our rigs there is no one size fits all. Plus I am sure plenty of people would think my latest addition is foolish... I mean really who needs to add a full sized shower to their van?

Re: Aluminess Rear Bumper Step

That's pretty high on the redneck-meter, but if someone actually uses the shower while it's still on your van like that, then you're well into hillbilly territory.

Re: Aluminess Rear Bumper Step

Crunched some #s and the step with mounting bracket would be $250.
