The trailer hitch step is a truck and Jeep accessory that attaches to the rear bumper trailer hitch. It protects the rear bumper by giving passengers a step to step up to the truck bed or cargo hold without having to step on the rear bumper itself. 4 Wheel Parts carries trailer hitch steps that can also express your personal off-roading style. WeatherTech brand BumpSteps come with the logos of popular NHL teams and 4 Wheel Parts also sells trailer hitch steps from top off-road accessory brands such as Carr, Go Rhino and Lund. When purchasing a trailer hitch step, keep in mind that the individual hitch steps fit different sized receivers and typically the hitch pin is sold separately.
While your main passion is off-roading, you also have to keep the functionality of your vehicle in mind. Imagine days when it's been snowing and there's a pile of snow on your vehicle's roof. If you aren't super tall, you may struggle to remove it. Even the longer snow removal tools won't cut it if you have a lift kit installed.
In some states, driving with snow on your vehicle's roof is illegal and could get you pulled over. You have no choice but to clean it off. However, when you are driving a big truck or a jacked-up Jeep, this can be a tough job. By installing a trailer hitch step, you can get the help you need to be able to reach the top of your vehicle and keep it clean.
Cleaning and Other Situations
Even if you don't live in an area that gets snow, a Dominator hitch step can be helpful. You can use a universal hitch step to give you a boost when cleaning all that off-roading mud and grime off your vehicle. It is also handy if you need to do repairs or make new installations around the top of your vehicle. Not to mention, if you are going to carry cargo, a step on the hitch is handy for loading and unloading.
Easy to Install
A hitch step is probably one of the easiest accessories you can install. A couple simple tools and you are ready to install it in minutes. You don't need anything fancy, and the job will not take all day. In fact, you could easily do it in a short time after work one evening. The benefits of having one will be well worth the effort.
