I am looking for a step hitch for (a) Step and (b) Protect my bumper.

I am leaning towards this Bully Black step hitch with light in bar and I also need a decent locking hitch pin. It is my understanding that rubber shims that stick on with two-sided tape are available to prevent any possible rattle that may exist on anything you put in your receiver.

Any opinions or recommendations on either or both?

Thank you!

I have the Curt anti rattle locking pin. It's good. Haven't see a need with a ball pulling a trailer for the anti Rattle. But when having a hitch basket or bike rack it kept it from shifting around. Kinda a pain to install but very good.

If you plug a hitch light into the tow harness it'll likely deactivate your reverse camera from what I hear. Keep that in mind, I wouldn't get one unless you plan to wire it to the brake light direct.

I like this a lot, I might get it as well.

Just a question, do you know if you plug it into the trailer switch, will the Maverick think it has a Trailer and do something about it? like change some settings somehow?

I've never had a trailer in any of my vehicles, so I don't know about this.

Thanks!

Don't think this will do anything to protect the bumper but I had this on my RAM 1500 4x4 so I could use it to step up with the tailgate down. It rotates out and then extends out to provide a step up ito the bed.

I have the Bully, but without the light.

After getting rear-ended 6 days from taking delivery, I went with a "Superbumper". I think they call them "Sparebumper" now. It has thick rubber shock absorbers inside and outside to absorb some of a low speed impact. You can find videos of trucks backing into walls and bouncing off. There are a lot of reviews on it was well with pictures after people have been rear ended. It's bulky and somewhat heavy, but I know I'm going to get hit from behind again at some point and I'm hoping this mitigates the damage.

As a step, it works great. It has a very rough patch on the top that is very anti-slip. It does block the plate so I'm rolling the dice with avoiding a ticket.

I think it would be near perfect if it were a bit smaller. I must say the build quality is fantastic though.

I went with this version, it was actually nice and sturdy. Heavier than I though it would have been. Paint came chipping/flaking off in the box, and had a little baggie with a hitch pin and anti-rattle plate.

Blasted it with some Krylon rust protector black spray to cover the chipped spots, then added some red over it.
