Fitment - Ram 1500 DS models only

The AMP Research BedStep is the perfect tailgate step.

It is an ingeniously designed, heavy duty truck tailgate step and will fit most trucks in the industry. They are made for people who use their truck like a truck! And the best part of these steps is that they're made to retract with a gentle nudge. Yep, you're not mistaken - you're looking at a retracting step that's easy to use and won't break the bank.

Whether you're a construction worker trying to reach tools, a parent whose children seem to live in your truck bed, or just an average Joe - you'll find many practical uses for this simplistic bed step from AMP Research.

The linkage system is made out of die-cast aluminum, and will hold up to 136kg (300 lbs). The retraction pivot points are composed of stainless steel pins which swing up or down with ease, while offering heavy duty support.

As you can see in the images, the AMP Research BedStep comes with a non-slip step pad. It is made out of durable and glass reinforced composite, which assists in a safe step up.

Simply kick the step down with a gentle nudge of a toe and whether the tailgate is open or not, you've got the boost needed for a comfortably and safe stepping experience. When your truck bed trip is complete and you're ready to step down, simply flip the pad up into its retracted place and go about your business. No bending over. No tracks to roll, no nothing! The best part - you'll hardly notice the step is there.

    Not a direct bolt on for RAM 1500 DS without modification. In the closed position and STANDARD exhaust, the arm hits the exhaust. Modification to the mounting holes were required to enable it to be moved away from the exhaust. I doubt it will fit with larger aftermarket exhaust systems without additional modifications. Once fitted, the Bed Step works well and does the job it is supposed to do. Very happy in that regard. This was done on a 2023 ASV Ram 1500

    Good product if it fitted correctly to 2021 quad 1500. Hit on dual exhaust and underside of body of bed. Also bracket sat on bolt of tow pack factory fitted.

    Reasonably easy to fit, instructions could be better. Touches exhaust pipe when folded up. Overall good product, fit for purpose.

    The Bed step works great. The fitting instructions did not appear to suit my model and I needed to modify the mounting bracket to fit it to the car. What should have taken 30 minutes to fit ended up 5 hours. Once fitted it works great
