    Need a large Dakine truck pad

    By Thursday afternoon I might add. If anyone knows a shop that stocks them locally or if someone has one in decent shape they would like to get rid of let me know, thanks.

    You can use a furniture pad over the tailgate, it works just as well and it won't fly off...took it on the freeway across the state and everything stayed in place.

    I tried using a furniture pad and the bikes slid around, whats the trick to keeping the bikes from moving around?

    I have a bedliner in my truck...the ridges keep the back end from sliding. As far as the front/fork on my buddies truck we doubled up the furniture pad so the bikes sat pretty snug against the tailgate and it worked pretty well. Did you use the thick pads? The U-haul ones don't work but the thick nice ones usually do.

    Yes I used the thicker one. I have a bunch since I build custom furniture & such.( just little plug for my business) I will try doubling it. The way I usually transport bikes is with the fork mounts, mounted on a board. This works well but takes a minute to remove front tire etc.

    Ya... I tried using furniture pads, sleeping bags, elbow pads, T-Shirts, body parts, blankets, foam pads, rubber mats.
    Nothing works as well as my dakine pad, the material they use on it will lock the bikes in place.

    For extra protection run a tie down looped once around each frame to the hooks inside the bed of the truck. Mine is so worn that there is hardly no cushion left.

    Give Rage a call.
