Gate King Tailgate - Adjustable Truck Bed Extender - GK77FR Review


Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today we're gonna take a look at these Gate King Adjustable Truck Bed Extenders. These durable stainless steel tailgate adjusters are going to replace your factory cables, allowing you to adjust your tailgate to eight different angles from open to closed. So you can carry longer load such as your ladder in your truck bed or create a wheel track for your dirt bike or four wheeler. Now, this is a custom fit part that is designed to fit the 2020 and newer Jeep Gladiator.

To confirm that these are gonna work for your vehicle, take advantage of our vehicle fit guide here at etrailer.com, input the year, make and model of your vehicle and our fit guide will let you know if these will work for your vehicle or if we have something comparable that will work for you. These are more convenient and less cumbersome than your typical tailgate extenders. And they are going to be great for trucks with tunnel covers and camper shells. They are going to allow your tailgate to support your load while they are locked in position, turning your tailgate into a wheel track for dirt bikes and ATVs. Now, this is going to be a simple operation.

You're just going to lower your tailgate, and really in the position that I have this in now, it is like your tailgate is lowered. So when your tailgate is closed, obviously these are going to be together but then you would just simply lower your tailgate and you would just engage this pin on here. And that's going to allow you to activate that ratcheting mechanism, as you can hear and then you're gonna be able to lift your tailgate to that desired angle. And then it's not going to lower itself, it's going to be locked into that position. And then when your tailgate is closed, that pin is going to return to the open position for normal tailgate use.

And then your tailgate will open up smoothly. So again, your tailgate is open, and just engage that pin. And then that ratcheting mechanism will be engaged. And then when you close it, then that is going to disengage that ratcheting mechanism. So it's really easy to use.

Now, if you run into a situation where you have your tailgate closed and you've got your tunnel cover locked and closed over the bed of your truck, and you can't quite fit your hand in there to release this pin, you can use this tool and that tool will allow you to engage that pin so you can release that locking mechanism. So this is going to be really a convenient way to allow you to use your tailgate in such a way to where it's going to be able to use, as we said, a wheel track or allow you just to keep it locked into a lift position. These are going to install quickly and easily with the included mounting hardware that you see here. There's not gonna be any drilling required because they are replacing the factory tailgate cables and they're going to be using the existing bolt holes. These are made in the USA of a durable stainless steel construction with an e-coat finish that's going to resist corrosion. You are gonna get two support bars with the hardware and also instructions to walk you through the installation procedure. An important note to make is that Gate King adjustable tailgate sub board cars do not replace the need for ratchet straps or tiedowns. For these support bars, we'll not work with most aftermarket slow release bars and they may not work if your truck's tailgate is bent, dented, or misaligned. You do also wanna make sure that you are following your manufacturer's weight limit on your tailgate as well as well. And you wanna make sure that you don't exceed that limit. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..
