Re: Tailgate saver
Good idea for those with short beds.
DGManufacturing - Tailgate-Support (forum vendor) is an easy fix for this to for $55, when I do not want to haul out the trailer or 5th wheel. I have an 8' bed so it does not rest on the tailgate itself while being hauled like the above picture shows either.
I seen guys with short beds using the above mention support and it seemd to work well.
Also I seen were a guy had 2 long metal plates bolted to his bed and had a hinged plate,that he flip down onto the tailgate as a support and supported with a similar tailgate supports like the DG. Seemed to work but also a lot of added weight and fabrication, but if you got it why not.
Seen an other guy build ramps to lift the front of the RZR enough to get the RZR more forward and off the tailgate too, so he could haul a pull trailer.
Its all good what ever works I guess.
