Well, were back into a F250

We just sold our 2006 F250 Diesel, which pulled the cart ( 8' bed ) and camper no problem, didn't even squat

We bought a 2006 F250 gas now, because we didn't like the diesel smell with the dogs in the truck, and this truck has a 6-1/2' bed because it's a crew cab

I bought the Gensis 300 series rear seat now, and sold the Gensis 150 we had on the cart, so now the rear seat deck folds up out of the way

I'm going to see if the cart fits this weekend with the brush guard on the front, into the
6-1/2' bed, keeping my fingers crossed

Here's a pic of the new rear seat on the cart now

well...this weekend I joined the ranks of the famous fails.

testing new winch mount system...tried to do everything right.

nice strong 3500 winch, wide/long Titan ramps, DG Tailgate supports...

actually loaded up in there nicely...but with the big 23s on there, the cart is just a couple inches from actually resting in the bed...so I was thinking it would be time for a smaller set of wheels/tires just for transport...and will change the winch mount so that I gain the 6 inches up to the back window...that was my bad on my directions to the welding shop.

anyway...it was time to back the cart down...climbed in, relaxed the winch so I could get onto the ramp and let gravity and the winch do the rest...wham!! the chevy duramax 3500 HD..(translation - cheapass metal) on the tailgate gave way just enough that the DG support came out...and the tailgate collapsed, which of course meant the ramps fell (yes they were strapped so no kickout, but with the tailgate fall, the ramps came down...and there I was with a cart..the rear footplate jammed into the gravel, the cart's belly stuck on the truck bed..., jacked up the rear to get the ramps clear, then used the winch cable to help keep from a major fall as we pulled the truck slowly forward until the front wheels were good to fall free...front brush guard bumper took a bit of scratch up, but overall, the cart survived... I'm just pissed at myself.

So did the tailgate catch/lock or did the sheet metal around it gave way around it ?

I don't have any issues loading my cart in the back of the truck. I did get rid of those cables on the tailgate found someone who was making ss straps and bought some ramps from tractor supply that are 8ft long and do not fold I load and unload by myself. Strap link

Loading the cart is a little hairy but it gets done. Without the winch things tend to slide off the ramps
Got to pull the tailgate and put a platform in the bed to keep something under the rear tires.
It's a fun ride with the camper hooked up though

Yikes!! That sucks. I'm curious, as I have a similar setup. Did the metal give way, did the DG support slip out of the tailgate locking system or is it possible you didn't quite have the tail gate locking system completely latched/locked in place? Looking at your pictures, I don't see where anything is bent.

I have a tailgatetiedown.com system, and have noticed I need to triple check that the locking mechanism in the tailgate is indeed locked on both sides. Here is some information and pictures from my build thread on it:92 CC DS gas, convert to lithium electric rebuild thread.

likely my bad that the tailgate locking wasn't..locked...but again..it held fine going up...

anyway...making some modifications..and I think it will include a couple of posts that I can place under the tailgate during loading.. I know that level ground will be important, but I won't have to trust to tailgate cables/rods.

my big question now is..if I get a set of 4 smaller radius wheel/tires...will that buy me the couple precious inches I need to get this cart on the truck bed and off of the edge of the tailgate itself.

I've got 23s on there now and while the cart fits widthwise between the wheel wells (something I wasn't expecting it to do)...it just makes it too long for my 6.6 chevy bed. I'm fine taking the time to swap out to smaller tires/wheel sets for transport.. i tink the Titan ramps give me enough arc that clearance should be ok.

I would just buy a sheet of 3/4 ply wood and put it down with the tailgate down and call it a day. Maybe pull the tailgate off and use the ply wood with a 4X4 across the back bumper to keep the weight from breaking the ply wood.
