How to Install the MaxxTow Cargo Gate on a 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup


Today on our 2002 Dodge Ram pickup, we'll be test fitting the Maxxtow Cargo Gate for full size truck beds 59-1/2 inches to 72 inches wide part number MT70235. Typically when installing the cargo gate, you'll want to go ahead and get your gear in first and then your cargo gate that way you can secure it up next to the bed of your truck or towards the tailgate, but for today's test fit, we're just going to show you how it looks on your 02 Dodge Ram. With our cargo gate assembled according to the instructions, we'll go ahead and hop up into the bed of our truck and set it into place. We can now go ahead and check tomake sure it's set at the correct height. We'regoing to move the L brackets to the center position on the plate here on the ends of our cargo gate. This allows us to have the L brackets in the right position to fit against the side railsof our truck. We'll loosen up the threaded handles on the sides to adjust the telescoping top rod for an easier installation.

Once we get those all the way out and against our side rail, we'll want to make sure that the L-shaped bracket is up against our side rail and that the other end of the L-shaped bracket is underneath our side rail. Once we have those in place, we can go ahead and tighten them down by twisting the threaded handles. With both sides secured to our truck, we'll want to use the hand knob in the middle to raise up our gate. This allows us to raise our gate so that the bottom side of the L brackets push up against the underside of our bed rail. With everything tight and secured, we're ready to go.

That will complete today's test fit of the Maxxtow Cargo Gate for full size truck beds part number MT70235 on our 2002 Dodge Ram 1500. .
