Works great, totally worth it
I was on the fence about buying this, because you can easily just throw the bikes in the back of the truck. What pushed me over the edge was an upcoming trip with some buddies, having to carry 6 bikes and riders. In the past we just put the bikes in the back, leading to scratches and dings on everyone's sweet rides. Nowadays, instead of issuing a standard "your stuff will get scratched" warning to folks, I just load em up and away we go.
- Its quick to load. Much quicker than stacking bikes carefully and aligning wheels and pedals to make everything fit, and trying to stuff rags in between rubbing frames and brake levers.
- Its easy to put on. Its the perfect width for my 2012 F150, and the two outside straps go on in seconds. The middle strap is more difficult but I found that holding the tailgate half open under one arm allows me to easily feed the strap under it. Total install time: < 2 minutes including getting it from inside and walking out to my truck.
- The bikes just don't move. No more worrying about scratches or having to use tie downs. The velcro straps on the tailgate hold everything secure. I've taken it on some rough roads/speed bumps and no issues whatsoever.
- Its well built and has a soft inner layer. If your tailgate is clean of dirt, this won't scratch it.
- It looks cool AF. And I say that as a grown man. You will get major style points at the trailhead as a 'serious' MTBer. Now to fit the image of your cool tailgate pad, you have to casually drop some references to 'shredding' and 'steeze' and 'roost'. Just make sure no one sees how bad you actually ride.

- It comes with a flap to let you use your backup cam. It probably works great for other trucks (it even has a little thingy to let you prop it open) but my tailgate cam is in the wrong part (2012 F150 - in the badge, not the handle). But who cares, trucks are for driving into things. Dents let you pretend you use it for real work and not just hauling around expensive toys like your favorite, adopted, 29" wheeled carbon full suspension, child. Also trucks come with mirrors to stop you backing over school buses of disadvantaged orphans, so yknow, don't worry about it.

Mixed feelings
I got this for a 2010 dodge ram and I'm somewhat disappointed. It just doesn't fit the tailgate smoothly. I tried it on my buddies 07 silverado and 09 f150 and it fit wonderful. The tailgate on the dodge is just to big at the top. Overall the pad is very well built and does serve its purpose. I would recommend this to other trucks owners.

PROS: Rugged, Durable, Waterproof, Adjustable

CONS: Fits Bad

Exactly what you need
This product is literally the perfect and most practical accessory if you travel with multiple bikes, shuttle friends ect. The small was the prefect size for our foRd ranger. We don't always use the individual straps but when hauling a handful of bikes they definitely come in handy. It's been on all summer, used everyday and shows no signs of ware. It is the ultimate bike accessory for your truck, hands down. No cons.

PROS: Waterproof, Lots of Storage, Adjustable, Rugged

BEST USES: Road Bikes, Mountain Bikes, City Bikes, Friends Bikes, Pinatas, Downhill Bikes, Commuting

Best Bike Carrier. Period.
IMO, this is by far the best way to transport bikes if you have a pick-up. I was surprised that the bikes didn't move a bit even over bumps, around corners, you name – much better than slapping a towel or blanket over the tailgate.

Get it, you won't regret it.

PROS: Waterproof, Number Of Bikes It Holds, Rugged, Lightweight

Love this thing!
The pad works great. Even on my'77 Ford pick up. Not sure I'll ever come close to hauling 7 bikes at once but I have already used it hauling 3 ( the number of people who can fit in my cab). I may have done the straps incorrect cuz they don't tighten when pulled like I backpack shoulder strap. Again, may have them woven through incorrectly.

Perfect pad for mid size truck
This is my second(one for out of state) - I have the 54" version. I have had 1 for a year and a half and no quality issues at all. The second is brand new so I cant rate that yet in terms of durability. I usually haul two bikes with it. It looks good, and I really like the straps that hold the down tubes in place so the bikes dont move. Easy to put on and remove - although I usually leave it on. Always feel safe using this.

Will this product cover the backup camera on a new Ford F-150 (next to the tailgate handle)? If so, can the part that covers the handle be rolled up or Velcroed in some way, so that it no longer does?
