Will Truck Ramps Work With X-Treme Gate Truck Bed Extender Installed

Question:

2 questions, 1. can loading ramps still be used with this installed? 2. when in the open position, does it lock the tailgate into place, keeping stress off of it while driving so it doesnt bounce around?

Expert Reply:

To be able to use ramps on your tail gate with the X-Treme Gate Truck Bed Extender, part # XG-001 installed you will need to take a couple measurements.

This extender attaches to the tailgate post on the back of the truck from the center of the mounting hole to the end of the XG-001 it measures 25-3/4 inches. If you measure from the center of the tailgate post rearward 25-3/4 inches you can see how much room you will have for the ramp legs. I have attached a photo of the extender showing a couple measurements and also a photo that shows where you need to measure on your truck to determine if it will work for you.

The extender does not lock the tailgate in place when installed.
