Description

The Gulch Stepper is a Hot Wheels casting which appears to take inspiration from the Dodge Rampage. It is a off-road lifted pickup truck. It has black windows and no interior, the window piece extends to a spare wheel on the hood and the bumpers. In the mid-1990's, several versions could be found on an individual card or in the Off Road Explorers 5-Pack. In 2001, the Gulch Stepper was released for the last time in the Final Run Series and the tooling was subsequently destroyed.

Gulch Stepper is a playable vehicle in Hot Wheels: Turbo Racing  and Stunt Track Driver 2 video games.
