This is a preorder sale! Introducing our newest addition and highly anticipated tailgate rack! Mounts directly to the tailgate using the spare tire bracket mounting points. Leaves your spare tire free to access without having to remove mounted accessories. Platform measures 32.5 x 13 inches with side brackets being removable to fit longer boxes. Top platform has dog bone cut outs to fit L track tie down rings. Side molle panels have pre made patterns to fit common accessories and mounts like smitty built, rotopax, frontrunner, maxtrax, etc and has a standard molle pattern to suit your needs. Additional brackets for hilift jacks, propane bottle mount, and expansion of the top shelf will be available after the preorder production run has ended.
Our tailgate rack has been in development for over 2 years and was specifically designed to meet the needs of the average overlander. We’ve tested and made sure the tailgate doesn’t suffer any detrimental aftereffects while offroading in extreme conditions while loaded and unloaded. We used a combination of grades of aluminum and steel to keep the weight around 20lbs for the rack alone and can carry up to 100lbs! Proudly made in the USA with a textured black powder coating. Mounts and accessories not included.
Preorder Details

This preorder will run until June 24th, 2024. Production will begin at the end of the preorder date and our tailgate racks will be expected to ship 1-2 months from the end of the pre-order sale. We will do our best to ship them out as soon as possible. You may request a refund for the preorder up until the day before the tailgate ships if you decide not to partake in the preorder sale for any reason. You will be refunded the purchase price minus a 5% fee to cover transaction fees.
Pricing
Current preorder sale will be 30% off from original pricing and free shipping to U.S. customers, which is our way of thanking those who’ve been patiently waiting for this rack to make its debut. We were hoping to price it lower, but due to the sudden rise in costs for just about everything, we had to price it appropriately. For those that order during the pre-order faze, will be getting the rack at the lowest price it will ever be available. Original pricing may also have to be adjusted after the pre-order to reflect true costs of producing the tailgate rack.
