    New question here. Chevy Avalanche Tailgate Pad?

    Has anyone tried a tailgate pad on a Chevy Avalanche? - carrying bikes hung over the tailgate? If so, how many will fit? I thought in order to do that you might have to remove the big plastic top on the tailgate.

    I've used a standard Dakine full sized pad on mine and it worked fine. I had to put the straps on with the tail gate 1/2 way open/closed then close the gate and tighten it up due to the ends of the gate and the bed sides not fitting the pad well.
    If I was to buy a pad just for the Avalanche I would look at the shorter pad for a mid sized truck so the pad would clear the bed sides better. Removing the top cap on the tailgate is not necessary and would a major PITA.

    I use an old Coleman sleeping bag for a pad on my Av tailgate, works great. No need to mess with the plastic cap. 5 bikes fit easily, you might be able to squeeze 6.
