I installed this rear step a few weeks ago and have not provided a review yet to give the step a fair review.
The step looks sleek in shape, color and finish.
It is as solid and durable as a rock.
I was concerned the step was going to interfere with the performance of the back up sensor but thankfully no issues at all.
I highly recommend this rear step and thank you to FVC for this great product.
Installed on a 2016 2500 4x4. The install is fairly easy as described although I really had to yank on the existing bolts to loosen them. Step is heavier than I expected so the good news is that it is very study and stable, the bad news is that it's a little more weight than I expected to carry around.
I have a ladder on the back where the first rung is about 2 1/2 to 3 feet off of the ground. I bought the step to make it easier to get up the ladder especially when carrying a heavy load and it works like a charm for that use case.
I included some pictures that show the step from some different angles. I also included a couple pictures that show the inside and outside bolt locations as well as one that shows how the step's side rails create a small passage for the tailpipe. I had to push the tailpipe a few mm's to fit it between the step side rail and the frame. The tailpipe has a lot of play in it so not a big deal, but just FYI it is resting up against the side rail of the step. I thought there might be vibration or thermal transfer issues with the tailpipe but so far no issues.|
Overall product does exactly what is says it does and is very heavy duty construction so will probably outlast the van.
My sprinter didn’t come with a hitch and I was looking for aftermarket options that were a direct bolt on and didn’t require drilling into the frame, and this step fit perfectly!!! Rock solid build and super grippy…I’ve been in snow, ice, rain, mud - you name it - and haven’t slipped once whether I’m in ski boots or flip flops. This should be on your must-buy list.
Rear step is nothing short of awesome. It's solid, grippy, and sleek. Installation was a breeze using existing bolts from the hitch. Getting in an out of the rear is now much easier and safer, and I should have added this months ago.
I just purchased and installed the Sprinter Rear Step on my 2019 MB Sprinter 170" extended 4x4. The install was very easy and the step fit perfectly over the top of the factory hitch. Very happy with my purchase as it makes getting in and out of the back of the van much easier.
Had the single sided factory rear step on my sprinter. Wasn’t cutting the mustard so I got this one from FVC. Super happy with it. Clean look. Easy install. Not too small not too big. I like that it maintains clear space at the tow hitch if I need that for various reasons. Notice it also makes as a nice footrest when sitting on the back of the van just hanging out. Very happy with it and would highly recommend it.
