Tailgate ladder

Now this is a neat idea. You can find them at Tractor Supply for $50.

Had one of these for several years now and it works fine. Only one problem with it. The Velcro strap to holds it in the closed position is a POS. It needs a better strap, which can be easily fixed.

I looked at one of those when I got my new RAM 2500...much to high for this old codger to jump up into the bed any more...

Decided I didn't want anything attached to the inside of the tail gate or side wall and I went with AMP Research Bedstep and their Bedstep 2 for the sides. Much easier, doesn't get in the way of anything, tucks up under the bed and this old guy can step right on up into the truck or stand on the ones on the side (Bedstep 2) and reach the hitch or cargo with ease.

BEDSTEP® | AMP Research®

Just another "option" for getting "a leg up".

I have one too, and I pretty much agree with everything you said. I also found that I had to improve the Velcro straps. I also find that Ia am using it less and less. Somehow, it just seems easier to climb up over the tailgate most of the time.

I also have had one for a couple of years. The company replaced the velcro strap and when the sent it I asked for an extra d ring. I installed it directly below the the other one and use a bungy cord. Works just fine.

===================

And if Ford put it on then it cost a whole lot more than $50, you can bet on that.
