Rear step is Still Genius

Although its praises have already been sung time and time again, I have to join the bandwagon; the tailgate-integrated step-up into the bed is excellent. While splitting and stacking firewood, the step proved invaluable, especially for shorter people.

The design is intelligent and easy to use, with a very small chance for it to break. The folding handle can get in the way if you are looking to install an aftermarket bed lining, but considering the quality of the Ford factory bed liner, that’s unlikely.
