Simple Rear Step for those with a standard 2" Hitch.

Post by milesdzyn » Thu May 22, 2014 12:36 am

I made this to keep the rear step as simple as possible with no moving parts or springs.

Construction is of 2" square tube and a short piece of 3"x1.5" rectangle tube.

All the ends have been capped off and there is a locking pin. The raised diamond grate is great for a sure footed grip, just big enough for one foot.

Image


There is a second locking position that blocks the door from being opened, just an added security feature for free while getting the step up for running the trails.

Image


Has been working great and easily supports my 240 lbs. with no problems.

Very nice! A clean and simple design.

You should consider making them for sale. Any interest?

That is a nice, clean, professionally executed design.

Nice job.

I have no interest in making these as there are to many variables to make them fit all applications. My hitch is shorter than the others I have seen made, as I did not want to extend it out past the body.

I don't claim ownership of this design or concept.

If I had a tube bender I would have bent the 2" square tube instead of notching it and also a simple u channel would have been strong enough for the step platform. I tend to over engineer things.

Thanks for posting your step. It is a very good job and looks to be following along with the quality work you do.
