Mopar now offers multiple ways to enhance the functionality and utility of the Ram Truck lineup. The brand’s latest retractable center-mounted bed step further enhances Ram 1500’s exclusive multifunction tailgate. The factory-backed step offers customers cargo-access flexibility without compromise.
Ram 1500’s available multifunction tailgate features first-of-its-kind 60/40 split swing-away doors that open 88 degrees, making it easy to load bulky items, unload, and wash out the bed and allows for easy forklift loading. With a push of the foot, the Mopar bed step deploys from underneath the rear bumper offering a firm 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.”
Mopar designed the bed step to fit specifically with the multifunction tailgate. Additionally, the bed step is made of high-strength aluminum with a black e-coat finish and is rated for 350 lbs. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $395.
