NEW RAM BED STEP & JEEP® GLADIATOR TRAILER BRAKE CONTROLLER

RETRACTABLE, CENTER-MOUNTED BED STEP FOR RAM TRUCK
Mopar® offers multiple ways to enhance the functionality and utility of the Ram Truck lineup, the full-size truck segment’s cargo-management and storage leader.

Mopar Brand’s latest retractable center-mounted bed step further enhances Ram 1500’s exclusive multifunction tailgate. The step is factory-backed and unique among all pickups, offering customers cargo-access flexibility without compromise.

Ram 1500’s available multifunction tailgate features first-of-its-kind 60/40 split swing-away doors that open 88 degrees, making it easy to load bulky items, unload and wash out the bed and allows for easy forklift loading. With one quick push of the foot, the available Mopar bed step deploys from underneath the rear bumper to offer a firm foothold.

Additional Ram factory-engineered, factory-backed bed steps available from Mopar® include:

  • Ram 1500 with standard tailgate: Mopar® bed step lowers down for easy access and retracts back to stored position within the bumper. The step is load-rated up to 350 pounds (Part # 82215289AG / U.S. MSRP of $365)
  • Ram 1500 Classic: Mopar bed step swings out from the driver’s side corner of the rear bumper and retracts back to its stored position. Designed to fit single or dual-exhaust models, the step is load-rated up to 300 pounds (Part # 82214245AD / U.S. MSRP $304)
  • Ram Heavy Duty models: Mopar bed step is manufactured from high-strength aluminum with a black powder-coat finish and load-rated to support up to 350 pounds. Similar to all Mopar bed steps, it lowers down for easy access and retracts back under the rear bumper when not in use (Part # 82215842AE / U.S. MSRP $365)
    All Mopar bed steps are available for purchase as a vehicle option or as a standalone part in the U.S. and Canada. Standard Mopar factory-backed warranty coverage includes two years/unlimited miles from date of purchase or up to the remainder of the new-vehicle’s warranty of three years/36,000 miles.

FACTORY-BACKED TRAILER BRAKE CONTROLLER FOR JEEP® GLADIATOR

In addition to the Ram Bed Step, Mopar® is enhancing the towing experience of the Jeep® Gladiator with the release of a new trailer brake controller.

The new Mopar trailer brake controller will give Jeep Gladiator owners the ability to activate the electronic brakes on properly equipped trailers. Independent from the truck’s brakes, the additional trailer brake control allows for greater stopping power when needed, such as on downhill grades, while helping to minimize wear and tear on both the trailer and vehicle. The amount of brake force on the trailer may be customized depending on load requirements.

The new trailer brake controller is easily integrated into the Jeep Gladiator’s instrument panel. Installed in front of the transmission shift lever, the round controller knob provides a consistent look and feel with the vehicle’s interior. The new controller may also be retrofitted into Jeep Gladiators that are already on the road.


Available for purchase as a stand-alone part in the U.S. and Canada, the new Mopar trailer brake controller has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $299. The standard Mopar factory-backed warranty coverage includes two years/unlimited miles from date of purchase or up to the remainder of the new-vehicle’s warranty of three years/36,000 miles.
