Transporting your bikes in the bed of your truck doesn't leave a lot of room for the rest of your cargo. Plus, there's that awful sliding and slamming that comes with tossing a loose bike in the bed. Now, with the Tail-Gator Truck Tailgate Bike Rack, you can easily and safely transport up to two bikes without taking up a bit of your truck bed. The Tail-Gator Truck Tailgate Bike Rack is specially designed to fit onto your truck's tailgate and can even be used with most hard and soft tonneau covers. What's more, it doesn't utilize your trailer hitch, so it still allows you to pull a trailer or camper.

Securing to your tailgate with five quick adjust straps, the Tail-Gator bike rack is simple to attach and remove. It features 12 pieces of protective foam to ensure a snug, safe fit. And, you can load your bikes easily without removing the tires. When not in use, the Tail-Gator tailgate rack folds compactly for easy storing.

The Tail-Gator Truck Tailgate Bike Rack boasts all-steel construction, a smooth powder-coat finish and a whopping 70 lb load capacity. And that all adds up to a lifetime of trouble-free use. In fact, Tail-Gator backs your Truck Tailgate Bike Rack with a limited Lifetime Warranty.

Surf's Up With The Tailgate Bike Rack

Love the rack, and have already used it to make a 250 mile round-trip from our valley city to the coast (specifically, Ventura). The rack is terrific. Both my wife's and my cruisers fit on the rack, though we couldn't use the rubber tie downs to secure the bikes because frames are too wide. Like anything else, you find a way. Other than that, no problem. Surf's up with this tailgate bike rack.

The Tail-Gator arrived quickly and was easy to install. Hanging two bikes on it is a different story. The bikes I have weren't easy to hang on it. The pedal of one was sticking into the spokes of the other, and the bike tires obstruct the tail lights on both sides of my small truck. Maybe great for large trucks, but not my Toyota Tacoma.

Great product

This bike rack is great if you don't have a tow hitch. Now that I've put it on and off a few times it takes me only a few minutes to install. My only complaint is that it is not compatible with my soft tonnueau cover...I can't close it when I have the bike rack on. Also, the straps could be more heavy duty. I don't think they will last more than a couple years with regular use. Other than it's a convenient product and priced well.

Great addition- keeps trailer hitch position open for other uses

The Tail-Gator is very easy to use and works great. Even the guys at the bike shop liked it and had nothing comparable to sell me other than hitch type racks so I went with it. I intend to add a hitch to my 2012 Tacoma so this allows me to bring bikes on the Tail-Gator and add a trailer to pull a camper,jet ski or motorcycle trailer as well in the future. Folds up easy and stores in the truck bed under my cover.The Rep was really nice to work with. I will be calling again soon. Hope that helps.

Works just fine! I use it for a boy's bike and a girl's bike and had no problem securing them. The rack also attaches securely to the tailgate and goes on easy enough. I use extra bungi cords just to be safe and I put towels between the rack and the truck to prevent scratching but probably don't really need to. If you don't have a trailer hitch, this is the way to go.
