Charles, If I am not mistaken Chevy is going to aluminum bodies in 2020 but a steel bed pan.

If the step works go with it. I do agree with Basser, too many parts for a tailgate.

Ken, I doubt too many parts will be an issue for it, they're quite capable nowadays of making many things work , if electric would be involved that would be a concern more so , of course repairing it or replacing it from an accident would be somewhat more costly then a regular tailgate, that step will not be used but so many times in a lifetime anyhow.
The fact that they are mentioning a steel bedpan I think is a joke, maybe they would feel like idiots if they did go for aluminum after all the criticism they dished out along with the stupid man step comments. Ford aluminum beds have been out for some time I don't know of anybody complaining about disastrous effects all of the aluminum bed pans other than from the Chevy commercials.
Ken, as you know I have the all aluminum Ford , and I have yet to see any damage in my aluminum bed even though I have been carrying thousands of pounds all of firewood lumber for building and such.
Just to note, I have not tried throwing large tool boxes Corner down first into the bed . You have to admit that was ridiculous

I see things that break... Im simplistic when it comes to vehicles, though my wife isnt.

My tundra is very basic, though I do have power windows and a cd changer hahaha...

My MIL’s Yukon Denalli’s touch screen gps went out, $4,500 to replace it! Most would say screw it but it was the brains of the vehicle and house the ECU if I recall, it had to be replaced.

I just hate the gadgets in a car.

Eric,
I agree but the way most, especially the domestic manufacturers package options you have to get the higher end packages with all of the options to get a nice vehicle. I know you like the Toyota’s but I really like the F-150 and have had great results in the last 3 vehicles, my current being an 08 with 282,000 miles all original drive train. It pains me to know that I will be spending nearly $15000 dollars more to get an equal 2019 and it will not have any bed-side steps.

I didn't like the idea of the step at first but now use it all the time.  It's a f350 so it's very tall and would be a bit5h without the step.  I also have a rubber cargo mat so no problem with the bed.

If you need to access the front of the bed then the step would be helpful, I tend to load everything from the back just to keep from beating up the sides of my truck. I know, it’s a truck and that’s what they are for but for the cost of a truck these days?
