Loading or unloading pickup trucks can be a difficult chore, especially those with high-stepping ground clearances. Dallas Fisher, the inventor of the Stepdaddy Ladder, and a man who has had both knees replaced, knows this all too well. His all-steel ladder anchors to the inside of the tailgate and has a grip handle for support. The ladder’s legs can be extended to the appropriate length. After use, the Stepdaddy swivels on its base and attaches to the inside of the tailgate using a special hook. The manufacturer claims that the product, which comes with a lifetime guarantee, takes about 30 minutes to install. The Stepdaddy Ladder retails for about $220 and is available at www.stepdaddyladder.com.
