Installing Tailgate Ladders for Easy Access to Your Truck Bed
Adding a tailgate stepladder to the back of your pickup truck or SUV is a great way to access the rear truck bed of your vehicle. The ladder will also enable senior citizens and disabled people to get up on the truck as well. The installation of the step ladder is a quick and simple procedure requiring only the simplest tools.
Difficulty level: Easy
Tools that you'll need:
- Tailgate ladder components
Step 1: Park the truck on a level surface to facilitate installation.
Step 2: Open the tailgate of your vehicle.
Step 3: Put the mounting plate of the ladder on the driver's side of the tailgate. Position it at least one inch from the tailgate's top and half an inch from the side's edge. This will ensure that the ladder won't block the tailgate as the tailgate is being closed.
Step 4: Mark the points you'll need to drill on the tailgate by using the holes of the mounting plate for reference.
Step 5: Drill the tailgate at the points you've marked. Make sure that the size of the holes are the same as that of your screws.
Step 6: Secure the mounting plates on the tailgate with screws.
Step 7: Attach the side rails of the ladder to the mounting plate.
Step 8: Attach the climbing section to the side rails by sliding the side rails into the tubes of the climbing section.
Step 9: Extend the climbing section until it touches the ground vertically. Adjust the position and length of the ladder until it touches the ground at a 15 degree angle from the vertical position.
Step 10: Put the ladder onto the tailgate.
Step 11: Drill a hole 8 inches from the end of the ladder.
Step 12: Attach the tie down strap to the hole using the washers and screws.
Step 13: Place the end caps on all the studs.
Measurements may vary depending on the vehicle and the brand of the tailgate ladders. Be sure to read the manufacturer's installation manual just in case.
