Advantages of the 2021 Ford F-250 Tailgate Step and Lift Assist in Vernon

May 25,2022

With the release of the 2021 F-250 at Skaha Ford in BC, commercial fleet operators experience tailgate ease. This truck fuses its rugged design with convenience, allowing drivers to climb into the bed effortlessly and maintain the truck's tailgate through repeated use and abuse. The 2021 F-250 offers a tailgate step with a grab bar, which is standard on Platinum and Lariat trims and optional on XL, XLT, Lariat and King Ranch models. The step can hold up to 136 kg (300 lbs) and features textured treads to ensure stability, while the grab bar is ideally located to enhance steadiness. A hinged design also allows the bed step to retract when not in use, and the no-drill installation ensures a quick fitment. Further complementing the step is tailgate lift assist, which is designed to keep the Super Duty's hatch in good working order. This system includes a tailgate shock, which slowly lowers the door when being dropped into position. Considering how often commercial fleets open and close the tailgate, this feature is handy when ensuring the longevity of bed components.
