Best tailgate pad

    I tried a few others and reviewed a bunch more. This is the best. Protects the truck and bikes. Keeps them in place with padding for the forks and frame and straps.

    Best tailgate pad

    Raceface Tailgate Pad

      This pad works very well but...DO NOT leave on you're vehicle when not in use. This pad does not stand up to constant sunlight and the stitching and straps degrade quickly. If you leave it on you're vehicle it will last less than a year.

      Loved it, but it didn’t last long

      Loved it, but it didn’t last long. Straps started to do degrade after 12 months. At 20 months the sewing between panels failed. I expected to get more than two years out of it, and the warrantee from and the manufacturer is only one year.

      Worth every penny

      I got this truck bed pad for a Toyota Tacoma SR-5and it fits great. It covers the whole tailgate, and although the middle strap was a bit short, if I fed it through the hitch it worked great. The extra straps really secure the bikes well and the pad has kept my tailgate damage free!

      No brainer!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Really Awesome cover! The S/M fits my Tacoma perfectly. Its super secure as well, the bike doesn't budge. It can carry more, but realistically, 3 or 4 bikes max will will fit.

      Worth the extra money

      I originally had a Dakine pad for my truck. Nothing was wrong with it, but I found a huge scratch on my brand new truck's tailgate (granted I had 6 bikes loaded on it) after some shuttle laps in Fruita, CO. I decided to go with the Raceface after hearing it fit some friends' tailgates a little better. I actually am stoked on it! The frame/fork pads hold your bike well so you don't have sloppy bikes while headed down bumpy Moab roads.

      I have a 2017 Toyota Tacoma and the S/M fits great! There's about an inch of exposed tailgate on both sides, but the thick pads at the end should prevent any bikes from leaning over the pad.

      Worth the extra money

      Pretty good but..

        I have had this for just over a year, the Velcro straps have literally blown off in the wind. There are 6 slots for bikes with straps, I am down to two. The straps could not hold up to the wind. That being said, the straps are not incredibly important and most similar pads do not have straps at all. If you want the straps, I’d skip it, if not, it’s a great pad.

        Keep it steady

          There's no comparison when you look at transporting bikes on a rack vs a tail gate pad.

          Add the quality and utility of the raceface and it's another no brainer to choose this over lesser quality pads.

          Works Great

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          Extra padding really helps to keep bikes in place when fully strapped down, Large size is very wide so only recommend for full size XL trucks.

          Works well for f150 w/ tonneau cover

            Perfect for multiple bike transportation - any wider and it wouldn't have fit truck because of bed cover rails. Medium size was perfect.

            Better than the rest

              I've had other tail gate pads in the past, and this one is better. The extra padding to hold the bikes in place is awesome, it keeps them from moving while on the freeway. The straps are a plus, which I haven't had to use yet but imagine will work well on bumpy, dirt roads. Fits my 2007 Tacoma nicely, and has an extra soft lining to protect my tailgate. Highly recommend this pad over others.

              Clean and Easy

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              I tired all three truck pads we offer and found the RaceFace to be the best. It fits my 2017 tacoma perfectly. Super easy to install. Love that it has the dividers for the bikes. By far the best and most durable truck pad on the market.

              The best option

              • Familiarity: I've used it several times

              I got the smaller size for my 2007 Tacoma and it's been great. The blocks hold your frame so well that you don't even need to use the velcro in most instances. Even on bumpy Moab backroads we had 6 bikes all perfectly snug.

              Unanswered Question

              Does this pad fit a 2016 Tacoma? They have a wider tail gate then the 2015s and older. A friend had a Thule pad on his older Tacoma but it doesn't fit his new one correctly.

              Freaking Awesome!

              • Familiarity: I've used it several times

              Such an awesome tailgate pad. My friend has the Dakine tailgate pad and this one is way better. The best part are the raised pads that your frame slides into. Had 5 bikes on it and none of them moved. Would recommend to anyone!

              Great pad

                This is just an all around great pad that has all the features you need. It has the straps to keep your bike straight when driving on a rough road. It has the little side walls to keep the end bikes on the pad. If you have a truck and bike, you definitely should have a tailgate pad. It will make your life a lot easier.

                I own a 2015 Ram Laramie EcoDiesel and the XL pad depicted below is just amazing. It effectively does it's job. I took my bikes roundtrip from Chicago to southern Maine without any issues. I had the truck over 90 mph at times and the bikes were ultra secure. As others have stated, the fit is not perfect due to the shape of the Ram tailgate but it is easily worked around. The bikes were held very securely, without any scratching or marring and the padding at the fork along with the padded channels for the frame are just absolutely excellent. They keep the bikes separated and this pad just does it's job without fuss. Lastly, the microfiber did not scratch my paint at all which has lead me to leave this on as a cool truck accessory while locked to the truck bed for security.

                My friend loves it.

                  The RaceFace pad is the best tailgate pad that I've found. The notched bike holders and Velcro straps ensure that bikes do not move, scuff or scrape each other or the tailgate.
