The Grip Step receiver hitch step provides a convenient stepping surface on the front or rear of the vehicle. It installs using the receiver tube opening and can be attached or detached as needed. The shank fits most 2″ x 2″ receiver tube openings (may not be compatible with certain receiver adapters). It includes all necessary mounting hardware for attaching the step and comes with a hitch pin. Like the rest of our Grip Step line, this hitch step features a unique, expanded metal tread for superior traction in any type of weather, and a 7″ x 2-1/2″ rectangular design to offer reliable footing without any of the nonsense. It is built from a 5052-H32 aluminum alloy, making it exceptionally strong and putting rust in its place (NOTE: The shank for mounting this step is included but shipped separately).
