Tailgate ladder. By homesteadonomics. 13:35 video:
The key to not needing a ladder to get into the bed of a pickup is to not jack them up with lift kits

The newer 4wheel drive trucks all come from the factory with the need to have a step ladder to get in and out of.
All brands included. My opinion is that the new generation of truck owners are mainly people that use them for show and go.
Those of us that use our trucks to work out of hate having to climb up and climb back back down every time we need a tool out of the back.
This has been a gripe of mine for years. Maybe someone has a better reason and can explain why the manufacturers build these jacked up SHOWMOBILS other than that’s what sells.
Another rant while I’m at it is the blinding headlights on the new vehicles especially the these jacked up behemoths running around.

With the exception of ranching farming construction or service 70% of the morons just driving around in pickups on the roads today should all be driving smart cars or smaller
Frank, that’s a good eye. Maybe the design engineers at the factory could convince the bean counters at the factory that they could sale more trucks to the soccer moms by adding this feature to their trucks.
They could pitch this feature as a place to carry sports gear or a convenient place to haul groceries home in.
Norton,that video reminds me of trucks that Farriers use today. They can pull up to the job site and within a few minutes have a forge, anvil, drill press, bench grinder, and all of the supplies they need to work quickly and efficiently.
