I keep a 3 step, step ladder in the bed of mine now so that I don't have to jump up to get inside the bed.
I put in an AMP bed step. With the BackFlip Revolver X2 tonneau and Ramboxs it's an AMAZING combination!!

Sounds nice. But can you take your AMP bed steps to the front and use them to climb inside the engine compartment? Like I do with my step ladder? :lol:
