Anybody seen these--steps on rear bumper

These were bolted to the rear bumper for steps. Anybody know if this was a factory option or an after thought. Never seen them before.

I've never seen any like that before. They look factory made but from the angle of attachment I would say not for our trucks...

The angle looks a bit off, but when the bumper was on it wasn't bad. I just ran across these cleaning up. I went a new bumper.

Re: Anybody seen these--steps on rear bumper

I have never seen anything like those on our trucks as something from the factory, but then who's to say that a dealership thought they were a good idea for a truck intended for RV'ing and stuck em on there?

Usually see these on station wagons so the kids would step on these and not the shiny bumper.

Re: Anybody seen these--steps on rear bumper

I saw them on the back of a burb that use to be used by a church....actually i think Tim Christian bought the burb, fixed it up a little and sold it....maybe he'll see this and chime in
