DAKINE Pickup Pad DLX $139.95
Give your truck the DLX treatment.
Bikes and trucks go together like peanut butter and jelly. It's hard to compete with the ease of tossing your trusty steed into the bed of a pickup to bust out laps at your local trailhead. The Dakine Pickup Pad DLX is the perfect tool to get it there safely, and protect your carbon frame from the tailgate, or the tailgate from steel scratches and dings along the way.
The fleece lined padding is covered with a thick layer of 1000D polyester for serious durability, and it's topped with a UV- and weather-resistant coating, so you can leave the pad on your truck all season long, always ready spontaneous shuttles. Four straps wrap around your tailgate to keep the pad secure, and two lockable grommets enable you to run a cable lock through all of your bikes, keeping them secure when you stop for your post ride pilsner and pizza. An over-sized access flap enables use of a back-up camera, and accommodates the different sizing and locations of modern day tailgate handles.
The Small pad, intended for a mid-sized truck, carries up to five bikes, the Large fits full sized trucks and can haul up to seven. Regardless of size, the pads include secure bike anchors to keep your machines in place. This may make you the victim to more shuttle requests, but at the end of the day, who can complain about a day of riding with your crew?

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Have been using the regular truck pad for years but just bought a new Tacoma and the original pad just didn’t fit right. This pad works with the thicker tailgates and the new access flap is much better as there is a clip to hold it up so you get much better veiw from the camera if you have one.
