It’s HEAVY!  It’s HANDMADE in America!  It’s SOLID aluminum.  It’s COOL, and it’s the best step-bumper protector you can buy.  

WeatherTech makes the Billet BumpStep in their tool room in Downers Grove, IL by American Machinists on American made CNC machines.  Made in very limited quantities, they start with a 36.5 pound solid billet of aluminum.  Many hours are then spent sculpting the Billet BumpStep in multiple CNC machines.  Custom fixtures had to be made, programs written and specialized cutters purchased, all to make the best bumper protector/step in the world.  Fits any vehicle with a standard 2" receiver hitch. The aluminum is hard-anodized for corrosion resistance and scratch protection.

Why Get a Billet 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 Billet 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 Billet BumpStep helps prevent having to get your bumper repaired.  As the "step" portion of its name describes, Billet BumpStep also allows you to safely stand on the 12" wide step for everyday tasks such as loading a roof rack, racking a bike or kayak or washing the upper area of your vehicle. The Billet BumpStep has a higher weight rating than the tongue weight capacity of your vehicles receiver hitch!

Lifetime Limited Warranty

WeatherTech Direct, LLC warrants that their products will be free from any defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the original purchaser and only for the original vehicle they were installed in. That does not mean that a product that simply and naturally wears out from normal use is a candidate for a warranty replacement or a refund. Like tires, brake pads or the shoes on your feet, everything wears out and when it does, that does not mean you did not receive good value for your money.

WeatherTech is a reasonable company and they believe in true customer satisfaction. They will work with you for a fair resolution to any issue you may have. Fair is defined as being fair to both you the customer and to WeatherTech. They do not charge extra for their products to the vast majority of customers so they can accommodate ridiculous warranty claims by the few. Their decision is final and will consist of either replacement of your product at no charge or charge you a prorated amount for a replacement, meaning they may extend a discount to you to purchase an exact replacement. The goal is to keep our customers happy for a lifetime and always reach a fair resolution to any issue. Proof of purchase is required.

Exclusions to this warranty include wear due to severe abrasive conditions, chemical contamination, such as spilled gasoline, bleach, vehicle accidents, misuse, abuse, incorrect installation, incorrect use, etc.
