The brand’s latest retractable center-mounted bed step joins the Ram 1500’s multifunction tailgate. The step is factory-backed, offering customers cargo-access flexibility.
Ram 1500’s available multifunction tailgate features 60/40 split swing-away doors that open 88 degrees. With one push of the foot, the available Mopar bed step deploys from underneath the rear bumper to offer a foothold.
“Mopar offers more than 600 quality-tested, factory-backed parts and accessories across the entire Ram lineup,” said Mark Bosanac, Head of Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA – North America. “Our retractable bed step further enhances the convenience and utility of Ram’s industry-leading cargo management and storage system.”
Designed to fit specifically with the multifunction tailgate, the Mopar bed step is made of high-strength aluminum with a black e-coat finish and is rated for 350 pounds.
Additional Ram factory-engineered, factory-backed bed steps available from Mopar include:
- Ram 1500 with standard tailgate: Mopar bed step lowers down and retracts back to stored position within the bumper. The step is load-rated up to 350 pounds.
- Ram 1500 Classic: Mopar bed step swings out from the driver’s side corner of the rear bumper and retracts back to its stored position. Designed to fit single or dual-exhaust models, the step is load-rated up to 300 pounds.
- Ram Heavy Duty models: Mopar bed step is manufactured from high-strength aluminum with a black powder-coat finish and load-rated to support up to 350 pounds. Similar to all Mopar bed steps, it lowers down and retracts back under the rear bumper when not in use.
All Mopar bed steps are available for purchase as a vehicle option or as a standalone part in the U.S. and Canada.
