Rhino hitch step installed - pics!
 
Figured while the camera was snapping pics of the Huskyliners, lemme grab these shots as well.

Useful device for protecting the rear from people who park too close... not to mention for reaching the roof/antenna area if you need to.

Renegade - does this cause your backup sensors to beep when in reverse?

I know my hitch hauler does and was just curious if this did or if it was short enough that it didn't cover them....

I read about that possibility and that was the first thing I checked when I installed it. It has no affect on the sensors. Maybe if it was thicker or angled up more towards the bumper it would, but its fine.

Also love the way it appears on the screen when backing up. I'll try to snap a shot of that. Has a nice perspective when backing up.

Do you happen to have a link to the installation instructions for that? That looks great, just what I'd like after having to get a ladder to dry the roof all the time here when detailing.

You can turn the beeper off when there is something installed in your hitch.
Renegade LOOKS GOOD I was thinking of getting one of those, Thanks for the pics
(now I'll be spending more money
