Have you ever been working on your truck and needed a bit more...

Have you ever been working on your truck and needed a bit more height to reach the dipstick, change your fuel filter, pour in the oil, whatever? Well, I was visiting the guys at BulletProof Diesel over the weekend and they have come up with a solution to this issue and it simply works excellent. It mounts directly into your tow hooks and once installed, it becomes almost like a part of your vehicle. I weigh about 200 lbs and it holds me with ease. It is even stable when I was standing on the very outside edge and it didn't move an inch. It has non-skid on the step to prevent slipping and is covered in red powder coat. The minute I saw it, I KNEW I just had to have one of these so Ken let me take it home to take some pics and try it out. The arms are stored in the base and it could easily fit behind the seat in my truck (if I didn't have "things" behind the seat already. ) Anyway, on to the pics!

That thing is cool. I could really use that thing. It would be easier on my back than climbing a step ladder.

Looks nice.

When I get my front hitch installed, I plan on using my cargo carrier as a similar tool.

That's cool, I have one of those but it Goes on my tire, never had to use it my stock truck. I'm 6ft so I guess that's enough.

Yes sir, it would especially benefit you and your back. It's also adjustable if you need a bit more or less height. I could easily reach back and see where my EGR purge line was rubbing my 45* turbo boot and the step was on the lowest level.

I really have no idea, Jeffrey since the cost never came up in conversation. Once I find out, I'll post up or maybe the guys from BPD will chime in on this thread.

Excellent! I am not the tallest guy and working on my truck can be a challenge at times. A step like that would make things A LOT easier for me.
