Video Transcript for Pilot Truck Tailgate Net Review - 1986 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

Today on our 1986 Chevy Silverado we will be taking a look at and installing the Pilot Automotive tailgate net, part number TR-03. The Pilot Automotive truck tailgate net is also available for your compact size and midsize trucks, part number TR-02. Here's what it's going to look like once it's installed on our vehicle. You're going to have that heavy duty nylon webbing on each side and over the top it's going to have extra stitching to help prevent against stretching and/or fraying on the sides. The net is going to measure 62 inches wide by 19 inches tall. It's going to be perfect on your older vehicles with your wider beds than your newer vehicles. You're going to have those 10 inch straps with extra heavy duty buckles on three points on either side.

With hardware brackets that drill straight in to the side of the bed. Now there's a couple different benefits and options when you're going to use one of these nets. The first is going to be that's it's going to prevent any kind of wind drag against the backside of your tail, or tailgate, and it's going to improve your gas mileage with not having as much of that drag. Another option is if you have your stake bed trucks and you want to run it over the top of your tailgate on the backside of the stakes, you can do that as well. It's going to be a nice secure tailgate to keep all of the items in the bed of your truck and still giving you a purpose for using it. Now I'll go ahead and show you how it's installed. All right, now that we've already got our tailgate removed we're going to go ahead and start spacing out our mounting brackets for our tailgate.

Now on the inside of our box, right at the backside of where that tailgate was, you're going to have a nice flat surface. You're going to mount your three brackets; one at the very bottom, one at the top, and one in the middle, making sure that if you ever decided to put your tailgate back up on here that it wouldn't hit and make contact with it. So make sure you offset it about 1/8 of an inch. So go ahead and place our bracket down here and we're just going to use a paint pen to mark the hole, since we're going to pre-draw our holes for our screws. Take a small drill bit and fine the center. Next we'll go ahead and take the bracket and our provided screw.

You'll have a little bit of room to adjust it however you're going to want to have it. Tighten it down the rest of the way and then we'll do the same thing for the other two holes on the driver's side. Now we'll go ahead and thread in our top bracket just underneath the top of the bed rail. Now we'll go ahead and take our tape measure and find the center of this post here. Go ahead and take our bracket and drill out our hole and repeat the same process for all three mounted on the right hand side. Go ahead and take the web strap, placing it through the top bracket, towards the inside of the bed.

You made need to adjust these. Leave about an inch of webbing and gap here on the side. You'll bring it back towards itself and secure it. Again, you can adjust these as needed, and keep in mind that this will loosen up with the heat so you may need to adjust it periodically. Now we'll go ahead and place in our strap in our other two brackets, and if it's easier for you to do it you can work from the bottom up as well. There's no sure science of doing this, just making sure you get all your straps secure. And that'll do it for our review and installation of the Pilot Automotive tailgate net, part number TR-03 on a 1986 Chevrolet Silverado.

very "flimsy" net. Figured it wouldn't be too strong at the price - but expected it to be a little beefier with woven straps. Looks OK, this is for Saturday night, show only. Its not going to retain any cargo in the bed especially if it gets a rolling start - see Newtons Law! 669547


Comments
As stated in the product description, the net isnt intended to restrain cargo or passengers.

I was unable to install this product as per the instructions. The so-called self tapping screws are worthless. First, they are aluminum so will not self tap into auto steel. After I drilled holes, the screws either stripped or snapped off. I ended up using my own stainless steel screws. I have not driven with the net yet so cannot comment on that. It appears to be good quality. 606363

Product is difficult to manage in attaching the strapless after releasing to load truck. Also it appears to be week in securing most loads in back of truck. 567143


Comments
The tailgate net is designed for aerodynamics, but not for restraining cargo in the rear of the truck.

Not worth the price, even though it's inexpensive. Needs to have a quick release system vs the clips. Takes to long to unhook and retook. hardware and screws are low quality, you have to drill an 1/8" hole first, they are NOT self drilling screws. Web site does not explain this, and the note that comes w/net says not to use to hold cargo In? why else would you buy one? I put it back in the box it came in, it's now on my work bench, don't think I'll be using it unless I'm taking a long trip and don't need to unhook it for the entire trip. 542198

Ask the Experts about this Pilot Automotive Tailgate

  • How Far do Brackets for Pilot Truck Tailgate Net Extend From Tailgate Frame
    I went out to our warehouse to take a measurement on the brackets for the Pilot Truck Tailgate Net # TR-03 referenced in your question and found that each bracket will extend 3/8 of an inch out from the inside wall of your tailgate. As long as you have at least 3/8 of an inch of clearance on each side of your camper when it's on the truck this will be a really good solution. Looking through the customer reviews for this product it does look like people have used it for the same application...

  • Does Pickup Truck's Tailgate Net Have to be Removed to Hitch 5th Wheel Trailer
    Some tail gate nets have a cut-out for 5th wheel applications but others such as the Pilot # TR-03 do not. Whether you can safely back your truck up to your 5th wheel with a tailgate net in place will depend on the type of net you are using and also on the height of your pin box. Safe is always more fun than sorry!

    The Pilot Automotive tailgate net is a universal fit item and fits most newer pickups, from 1999 to the present. The tailgate net measures 61 inches wide. To confirm fit, I would recommend measuring your tailgate opening from latch plate to latch plate. If this distance is between 62 and 65 inches, the net should fit your truck. I have also linked you to the other available tailgates for your truck.

  • Net Tailgate Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-150
    Since your 2008 Ford F-150 is a full size truck you would need the part # TR-03. The # TR-02 is for compact trucks so it would not work for you.

It is an extremely strong and durable reinforced plastic and has a clean look. It also has the option of adding the Louvered Tailgate Insert for Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate # VI-4000 and Louver Insert Kit for Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Tailgates...

  • Solution for Gaining Clearance Between Tailgate and Trailer Jack with Weight Distribution System
    Hi Jeff! I do have a couple solutions for you, however you won't be able to use a separate hitch extender with your Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System when towing. The kind of torque that a weight distribution system puts on the hitch connection, along with the kind of combined tongue weight you're looking at with the Rockwood Trailer and loaded ATV, will just be too much to ensure safe operation with a hitch adapter in place. All of this together will simply create too much instability....

  • Availability of Longer Pin Box to Gain Tailgate Clearance with 5th Wheel Trailer Hooked Up
    There may be some compatible replacement pin boxes for your trailer that are slightly longer than your current model but none would provide enough clearance to allow room for your tailgate to open. Any replacement model will be relatively similar in terms of overall size to the factory unit. If you are needing to lower the tailgate in order to hook up the trailer you might be interested in a 5th wheel tailgate like # VGD-10-100, which is designed for certain model Ram trucks. If you...

  • 5th Wheel Tailgate for a 1999 Dodge 2500
    We offer a couple of different options when it comes to 5th wheel tailgates for your 1999 Dodge Ram 2500. The Louvered Tailgate from Stromberg Carlson # VGD-94-101 is a great option. This tailgate features a vented design to help improve your field of vision while driving and reduce drag for better gas mileage. This option has a 100 lbs weight capacity. The 2nd option that I have for you is the Pilot Truck Tailgate Net # TR-03. Although this isn't necessarily a 5th wheel tailgate,...

  • Will B&W Pintle Mounting Plate Clear Lowered Tailgate on a 2017 Chevy Silverado
    B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2" Hitches - 13" Shank - 14 Hole - 16,000 lbs Item # BWPMHD14004 measures 10-1/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the mounting plate for a pintle hitch. If you were to then add something like Pintle Hook, Bolt-On, 10K Item # 63013 it sticks out another 6-3/8 inches total so you would be looking at a total extension of about 15 inches so it probably won't stick out far enough to clear a lowered tailgate on your truck.

    I do have an option for you but Stromberg Carlson does not offer a Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate for your 1977 Ford F-100. The only option we have have for you at this time is the Truck Tailgate Net part # TR-03 which is not as solid as the above but will still help to secure cargo.

The 4000 Series tailgate # VG-15-4000 only fits late-model trucks from 2015 on. If you want to retain use of the factory tailgate you will also want to order from a local dealership part ETZZ-99430B22-A. If you like a net-type tailgate we also have confirmed to fit your truck the Pilot Tailgate Net # TR-03.

  • Fifth Wheel Tailgate Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F-150 Short Bed and Slider Hitch
    A 5th wheel tailgate will provide better turning clearance than the standard tailgate on your 2014 Ford F-150 but it is still possible that, while turning, the pin box could make contact with the tailgate. Another option is a tailgate net, # TR-03. It will be easy to take down and put back up so as to avoid any contact with the trailer pin box. Fifth wheel tailgates such as # VG-04-4000 work best with long bed trucks since the hitches for them don't slide.
