Introducing the injection molded WeatherTech BumpStep and yes, it is proudly made in America! It is the best step-bumper protector available, next to our Solid Aluminum Billet BumpStep.
The BumpStep is injection molded out of a proprietary resin that is incredibly strong, yet has mechanical properties that allow it to flex when hit, taking the brunt of any impact. It designed to fit any vehicle with a standard 2" receiver hitch. The BumpStep measures 12" wide
Why get a BumpStep?
Well, it’s simple, protection against bumps, dents and scratches to your vehicle’s bumper. Careless drivers can bump, knock and crash without care into your back bumper. With the BumpStep, you will have the reassurance of bumper protection from other motorist’s mistakes and small accidents from backing up. As a vehicle owner that takes pride in your investment, scratches and dents to your bumper are as much of an eyesore as a ding to your door and BumpStep helps prevent having to get your bumper repaired. As the "step" portion of its name describes, BumpStep also allows you to safely stand on the 12" wide step (up to a 300lb max) for everyday tasks such as loading a roof rack, racking a bike or kayak or washing the upper area of your vehicle.

Do you make a BumpStep for a 1-1/4” receiver?No. At this time, we only offer the BumpStep for a 2” receiver. We do not recommend using a BumpStep with a 1-1/4” receiver and adaptor.
Note: If your BumpStep has been involved in an impact or accident it is important to have it inspected for cracks or fractures prior to placing any weight or loads upon it. Please send it to WeatherTech, BumpStep Inspection, 1 MacNeil Court, Bolingbrook, IL 60440 and we will be happy to inspect it and advise you if it needs to be replaced.
Insert the BumpStepXL into the 2" receiver hitch on your vehicle at the most desirable position. Then install the hardware and securely tighten the bolt. The secure mounting design holds the BumpStepXL firmly inside the receiver to reduce flexing and movement. There are four possible mounting positions to allow for proper installation depth on virtually all receivers.
