I have a new 2021 truck so I was worried about damaging the paint. I was also concerned because the tailgate on my truck is quite wide. This tailgate rack performed perfectly. We traveled aver 500 miles using this product and I am completely sold.
I got this as a gift because my old one had faded after years on my tailgate and my lady loved the new colorway. My old one held up through the test of time and like I said after three years of continual use the only thing wrong with it was the color had faded from being in the sun for THREE years. It has a soft underside unlike some of the others that protects your trucks paint job which is a huge plus. I've taken this thing everywhere, highway, dirt roads, bumpy shuttle runs through the mountains and have never once worried about my bikes.
