Will CargoGlide 1500XL Sliding Tray Clear Tailgate on 2017 GMC Sierra 2500


Im working on a 2017 GMC sierra 2500hd 6.5foot bed. I find a lack of information on this product in the height to clear my tailgate. My tail gate is 1-1/4inch higher than the ribs on my truck bed. what is the height of this unit from bottom of frame were it sits on truck bed ribs to bottom of tray that rolls out clearance so it doesnt hit the tailgate? I used one of your pictures to send, it shows a heavy duty thick frame in the truck bed to represent what I am looking for. Thank You

The CargoGlide 1500XL Sliding Tray for Trucks # CG1500XL-7548 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed. This model actually has 2 adjustable feet on the underside of the tray that will allow you to fine-tune the height of the CargoGlide tray during installation. This will allow you to customize the tray so that it will clear the tailgate on your truck.

I spoke with my contact at CargoGlide and he stated that it can be adjusted up to about 2 inches in height when using the adjustable feet, so this should be more than enough to clear your tailgate. This will have a tray weight capacity of 1,500 pounds and all the necessary installation hardware is included.

I have attached the installation details and a demonstration video on this product for you to check out.
