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.

It's great when used properly. However it's hard to disconnect and reconnect with the hardware that currently comes with the cargo net. It would be an even greater item if the hardware was able to be removed from the truck bed easily.

Over all looks great, the screws that come with are garbage, I recommend buying self tappers roughly 9/16 head bout half in long, I even pre drilled for the screws that it came with but over all happy with it

Delivery was too long, and screws not strong enough. But at the end it's fit to my Ford ranger XL 2011 .

It is not plug and play. You have to drill 6 holes to hold the their hooks, then the screws could not be used since it is a double wall and impossible to screw into it, I had to buy nuts and bolts. The holes to drill is sometimes on a welding point. It would be great if they could provide a metal bracket that can be screwed to the 2 existing Nissan screws. AS it is, I had to spend time finding tools and drill 6 holes, and then it is almost impossible to keep the net tight since the net's locking mechanism is not simple and needed to loop back. SO it looks sloppy, and I had to buy paint to paint the drilled holes before it rusted in the rain....

Product does not fit. It was a small and did not fit my 01 ranger. My ranger has the rear fenders flared bubble. I have 47” opening at tailgate. Your web gate is 50”.i returned it for a refund.


Comments
The flared bubble fenders you referred to means that your Ranger has a stepside bed. Unfortunately, this product is not a fit for a stepside bed, as stated in the fit information.

Great price for a great product. Took less than 20 minutes to install and will act as a great barrier to keep items from sliding out of your truck bed. I recommend this product.
