Video Transcript for Pilot Truck Tailgate Net Review

Hey, everybody. Welcome to etrailer.com. I'm Bobby. And today we're taking a look at the truck bed net here at etrailer. Now you guys, this is going to be an awesome way, if you guys are looking to cut down a little bit of wind drag, or maybe you need to account for a little bit of a fifth wheel setup or anything like that. Now what's going to be awesome about this guy, you can see here today.

It is on a full size truck. It also comes in a compact size. So they are kind of universal, which is great. Now the installation of this guy is really straightforward and simple, which is awesome. It's gonna be really easy to take this on and off as well.

And honestly, it is going to be only designed to reduce that wind drag and just kind of account for some of those fifth wheel gooseneck, hitches, that sort of thing. So you don't really have too much security with this guy. It's not designed at all to actually keep in cargo or passengers as the brackets that you're installing aren't really that heavy duty. Um so if you did have a really heavyweight hit here and slam against it, it could fail on you. So I think that's why they kind of say, it's not really designed for that, but honestly, as you guys can see, you're gonna have no trouble cutting down that wind drag.

We have a lot of holes here. Now the industrial grade on this is very nice. It doesn't feel like it's going to be falling apart anytime soon. And uh yeah, definitely seems like it's going to be holding up for the years to come, which is great. So if you are someone that drives around a lot of times with open beds, such as this, you want to go ahead, save a little bit of that fuel economy, this can be a great way to do so.

Or like we said, if you have a fifth wheel kind of hitch set up, or gooseneck, this is going to be a great way to go ahead and not damage that tailgate. Like I said it is a universal fit, so let's go ahead and see how we get it installed. Now before your installation, you want to go ahead and remove your tailgate. Now, we haven't shown you that guys here today because it is going to vary from truck to truck. So please refer to your vehicle's owner's manual guide to see how you can get it off. Usually, it's just popping off some tethers and finding the right angle to lift it out. All right guys, to get this installed, regardless if you're using the compact or full size net is going to be the same thing. And all we're simply doing is actually putting these brackets on the side of our truck. Now, how we go about doing that is going to be a little bit up to us, but the one thing I will suggest for you guys, go ahead and do yourself a favor. Grab yourself some self tapping screws like we have here today. Now there are some available here at etrailer.com if you guys want. Basically this is really going to save you the headache that we had today As you guys can see, they say that they're self tapping screws, but they're basically just screws here. And you guys can see, we had a little bit of an issue later- uh earlier on getting ours installed. So, on the other side, I highly recommend grabbing yourselves a uh self tapping screw. That way, it's gonna make this way easier for yourself. But you will need to go ahead and grab yourself a drill bit as well, just to start a pilot hole. And all you want to do is simply line up your bracket here to the very top, most portion. Now you can set this a little bit up to your own specifications for where you want this mounted. I'm simply beginning as high as I can, and a little bit further away as we are on quite a large vehicle here today. So all I'm going to do guys is line up my bracket here and just give myself a little bit of a scratch that way I know where I want to drill and grab my drill bit. I just want to start myself a small hole to assist my self tappers. I might suggest a little eye protection as there is metal shavings, but now we can go ahead and start adding on our brackets. With our hole pre-drilled we can go ahead and align our self tappers. And as we start getting closer here, I just simply want to align my bracket facing towards the inside of my bed, and cinch it up. So you're going to need to repeat that process for all of your brackets, an easy way to tick where you went from your middle. is just go from that top one and go about nine and a half inches to your center of that middle bracket attachment. And then go ahead and just add your third one pretty much near the base of your bed. Now all that's left to do is to go ahead and run our straps through our bracket. You simply take it, pull it tight and taunt, and then run it through our cam buckle. And repeat that process for the rest of your brackets. Now that everything's tightened down, you're ready to hit the road. One nice thing I really like about this, depending on how you set it up, you can actually go ahead and reinstall your tailgate. What's great about that, of course, right, we can go ahead and have our tailgate up for when we need to move some of our cargo. And when we have an open bed, we go ahead and drop it down, start saving on some of that gas mileage. Well guys, hopefully you can see this is going to be very helpful going ahead, cutting down a little bit on that gas mileage. And like I said, really making sure that we're not damaging our tailgate for any of those kinds of hitch setups. So it's going to be great overall guys. I think it's going to be a great little way of just giving yourself a nice little tailgate net to go ahead and protect some of those smaller items. And of course, like we said, have all those nice advantages. Well guys I think that about does it for our look at the truck bed net here at etrailer.com. I'm Bobby. Thank you for watching..

now I dont need to worry as much that my cargo will fall out the back after unloading my camper having this net is not as good as the tail gate but am happy to have something that is easy to pack and carry for when I unload my truck camper whilst traveling.




by:

The product is good and exactly what I was looking for. Maria K. at etrailer was excellent and a great help. Thank you




by:

Easy install screws were kinda cheap so I used some galvanized self taps




by:
2017 Ram 3500

Everything perfect. Strong durable material. Easy installation and a great finished look. Can use with bed cover installed and with tail gate installed. Very good value. Never disappointed in etrailer.




by:
2022 Ram 3500

Great service, fast delivery and the net fits very well. Always happy with etrailer!




by:
2019 DodgeRam Pickup

had to shorten to make it fit my new 2019 ram and used bunjis to keep it taunt, workes great.




by:

10 minutes after I installed it I found a steel tailgate with the 5th wheel dip. Tailgate doesn't fit the new truck so this will go on until I do something about it.




by:
2012 Chevrolet Silverado

We are using this BULLY gate above our tailgate in place of the topper door while the door is open. It is intended to keep our dogs in while the topper door is open and allows for more airflow on warm days. It works perfect so far. Can't beat the price.

Working perfect for our needs!!

Easy to install. It took me less than than an hour to install and I was taking my time. Looks good.




by:
1995 DodgeRam Pickup

I hardly ever do a product review but because of the excellent service I received dealing with etrailer I felt compelled to do this one so here it is. The communication on my order was excellent. .installation instructions were excellent product quality was excellent .The price was the lowest I found. I would do business with them and business with them again. I would recommend them to those who are looking for the products that they handle.




by:
2015 GMC Sierra 3500

I was unable to install this product as per the instructions. The so-called self tapping screws are worthless. First, they are aluminum so will not self tap into auto steel. After I drilled holes, the screws either stripped or snapped off. I ended up using my own stainless steel screws. I have not driven with the net yet so cannot comment on that. It appears to be good quality.




by:

I purchased this tailgate to replace my factory tailgate. I have a fifth wheel and it was difficult to get in and out of my truck bed. After installing your product it was easier than crawling over the factory tailgate. Thank you for a good product at a good price.




by:
2002 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Did not fit truck good at all.Do not put the tie downs where they tell you are it will really not fit well.I think they send one size fits all.Then they tell you that it WILL NOT hold cargo in then whats it for.


Comments
Timothy, thank you for your business and your review. You are correct when you state that this net should not be used as a tailgate replacement to restrain cargo or passengers. This product is designed to reduce air drag and improve gas mileage.
-- Etrailer Expert Laura E - 06/15/2017


by:

It sags because it doesnt fit F150 STX 4x4. Said it would but it doesn't. I never even was able to use it after I drilled holes to mount it and found out it is too long across the tailgate. Ford owners dont waste you time or $20 on this item.




by:

A good product considering the low price. I have a 5th wheel hitch mounted to the pickup bed and I removed the tailgate, so I will use this product.




by:
Honda Pilot

Received my bully cargo net right away just like etrailer ststed. Pleased with the priduct, but screws that come with it are junk. I drilled a pilot hole the threads on the screw came off. So if you buy this product make sure you use your own self tapping screws. Other than that it was an easy install and a great product




by:

I ordered a Bully Tailgate net, and sadly a strap broke on it only a week after getting it..it was replaced promptly, and no questions asked. Looking forward to a new Bully




by:
2012 Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

Great product very happy with quality and price. Great option for hauling. Fifth wheel camper as the metal 5th wheel gates are very expensive. etrailer is easy to deal with and they have a great website. Thanks very much.




by:
Chevrolet

very nice for the price I'm extremely happy with the easy installation took me ten minutes & boom I was done..It's very well made & love the bully logo..This is exactly what I was looking for to finish my restored 1985 Chevy deluxe pickup truck..I would definitely buy another one from etrailer.com with no prob...This product is an A+




by:
1996 Ford F-250 and F-350

very "flimsy" net. Figured it wouldn't be too strong at the price - but expected it to be a little beefier with woven straps. Looks OK, this is for Saturday night, show only. Its not going to retain any cargo in the bed especially if it gets a rolling start - see Newtons Law!


Comments
As stated in the product description, the net isnt intended to restrain cargo or passengers.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 07/15/2019


by:
Honda Pilot

Cargo net is great, no complaints. However, the screws to attach were very weak and broke off. Drilled various size pilot holes but they still broke off. The only way they wouldn't have is if I drilled a hole the same size as the screw. Put in my own self taping screws and they worked just fine!
Screws must have been made in China!!!




by:
2007 DodgeRam Pickup

Not worth the price, even though it's inexpensive. Needs to have a quick release system vs the clips. Takes to long to unhook and retook. hardware and screws are low quality, you have to drill an 1/8" hole first, they are NOT self drilling screws. Web site does not explain this, and the note that comes w/net says not to use to hold cargo In? why else would you buy one?
I put it back in the box it came in, it's now on my work bench, don't think I'll be using it unless I'm taking a long trip and don't need to unhook it for the entire trip.




by:

The product stretched quite a bit and the flapping caused the screws to vibrate loose and get lost along with the strap holders.




by:
2012 Ford F-150

This product really sucks . The net is too loose and having to drill holes Before screwing is Ridiculous The Kit should come with self tapping screws. I would not recommend this product to anyone!




by:

the tailgate net seems to be a good purchase. i wish they had quick disconnects then they perfect.

  • How Far do Brackets for Pilot Truck Tailgate Net Extend From Tailgate Frame
    I went out to our warehouse to take a measurement on the brackets for the Pilot Truck Tailgate Net # TR-03 referenced in your question and found that each bracket will extend 3/8 of an inch out from the inside wall of your tailgate. As long as you have at least 3/8 of an inch of clearance on each side of your camper when it's on the truck this will be a really good solution. Looking through the customer reviews for this product it does look like people have used it for the same application...

To confirm fit, I would recommend measuring your tailgate opening from latch plate to latch plate. If this distance is between 62 and 65 inches, the net should fit your truck.

  • Does Pickup Truck's Tailgate Net Have to be Removed to Hitch 5th Wheel Trailer
    Some tail gate nets have a cut-out for 5th wheel applications but others such as the Pilot # TR-03 do not. Whether you can safely back your truck up to your 5th wheel with a tailgate net in place will depend on the type of net you are using and also on the height of your pin box. Safe is always more fun than sorry!

Now you would have to initially remove your tailgate to load your motorcycle, but afterwards you would only have to remove the net to unload your motorcycle. Unfortunately, the tailgate that opens outward from its center is not something that we offer at this time. I have included a product description link and a video review link below.

  • Availability of 5th Wheel Tailgate for 1986 Ford F-250
    I do have a potential solution for you, however we don't have a traditional 5th wheel tailgate available that's designed to fit your 1986 Ford F-250. What we do have, however, is the Pilot Tailgate Net # TR-03 that is confirmed to fit and can essentially perform the same function - which is to eliminate clearance concerns or prevent damage to the tailgate while you have your 5th wheel trailer hooked up. This net is really easy to install on your F-250 and it will also help to improve...

  • Is There a 5th Wheel Tailgate for the 2021 Ram 3500
    While we do not have traditional 5th wheel tailgates available for the 2021 Ram 3500, we do have an option. It's the Truck Tailgate Net, part # TR-03. It will do what a 5th wheel gate is designed to do: provide better clearance for your 5th wheel and keep your OEM tailgate out of harm's way while towing the 5th wheel. It's very easy to install and will slightly improve your gas mileage by reducing air drag. I've linked to a video installation of this tailgate for you to look at.

  • Do you Have Any Fifth Wheel Tailgates for the 2020 F350 Super Duty?
    I think I have an alternative solution that might work for you. Unfortunately, we could not find any fifth-wheel tailgates that could fit a 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty. The only models available from the manufacturers fit 2019 models and older. However, there is a Truck Tailgate Net # TR-03 that will fit your 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty. It isn't a 5th wheel tailgate, but it will serve some of the same function of a 5th wheel tailgate (to avoid damage to the tailgate when hooked up to a trailer).
