Step Bumper Products

Looking at your pickup truck's overall design, you can tell that it's made for the off-road. One of the features that give that away is its relatively high vertical clearance. Not only does it help it get over road bumps easily, it gives your ride an aggressive look as well. However, because of this high vertical clearance, gaining access to your truck bed can be quite challenging. Now to make things easy, you'll need a Step Bumper. This component can be seen usually attached on the truck's rear-end bumper. Once in place, its main function is to provide an extra step for you or your passengers to make it easy to get in and out of your pickup's bed. As a result, gaining access to your ride's bed becomes easy. You won't be forced to exert that much effort getting in or out. Aside from making things a lot easier, having this component installed in your vehicle's rear end also provides an extra layer of protection in case of low collisions. That way you're saved from shelling out your hard-earned money for costly repairs. Each component is made from heavy-duty materials so you can further fortify your rear bumper by adding it. The component also comes in various finishes such as polished steel and chrome that helps it fight rust and corrosion. A Step Bumper is a great compliment to make your ride look good and give you easy access to its bed. So be sure to invest in one by placing an order here at Auto Parts Warehouse today.

How to Equip your Brand-new Step Bumpers to Your Car

A step bumper is a wise investment for trucks or pickups designed for work. It's designed to supplement your vehicle's existing bumper-making it easier to for you to access your tools and equipment. Since this bumper isn't designed for absorbing impact from collisions, it's best to replace it when damaged.

In this guide, we have prepared the necessary tips, tools, and steps to help you accomplish this project.

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Tools that You'll Need:

  • Socket set
  • Tape measure
  • Marker
  • Washers and bolts
  • Penetrating lubricant
  • Spray undercoat
  • Brackets and receiver brackets
  • Replacement step bumper

Safety Tips:

  • Always wear recommended safety equipment like closed-toe shoes, an industrial-grade dusk mask, safety goggles and gloves.
  • Consult your vehicle's dealer or the manual for the correct step bumper model or make.
  • Make sure that your work area is a flat, level surface.
  • Locate your step bumper and inspect it for any damages.

Step 1:Use a penetrating lubricant to soak all the bolts and brackets supporting the step bumper. This will help loosen the bolts when removing them.

Step 2:After a few minutes, use a socket wrench to remove all the bolts and brackets. Carefully remove the step bumper and disconnect any wires attached to it. Set the old fasteners aside for later use.

Step 3:Install the gray cladding and black plastic treads before installing the replacement step bumpers.

Step 4:Spray a generous amount of undercoat to protect the new step bumper from rust

Step 5:Remove the bumper brackets and its wiring guides, from the vehicle's frame. Check the brackets before installing the hitch receiver. Position these brackets between the frame and bumper brackets; use bolts and washers to install the bumper brackets.

Step 6:Use a socket wrench to fasten your replacement bumper to the brackets. Apply the necessary torque to avoid any bolts losing its tread or grip.

Step 7:Attach all the guide wires and components that were removed to the new step bumper.

Step 8:Check the bumper for proper alignment and if the backing, license plate lights are working

Installing a new step bumper will take about 45 minutes for an expert DIYer and around an hour for a beginner. It's a fun project to work on a lazy weekend afternoon.
