Review of the Softride Truck Bed Bike Racks on a 2016 Ram 1500


Today, on this 2016 Ram 1500, we're going to be test fitting the Softride Shuttle Pad Tailgate Bike Carrier, part number SR26457. Now to begin we're going to go ahead and take the Shuttle Pad and just set it up and over our tailgate. Then next what we're going to do is we're going to take these straps and feed them in between the tailgate and the bed of the truck. There's a couple ways you can do this. You can either just try to get them through without opening the tailgate or you can open the tailgate and feed them through. Try it this way first.

Let's see if they're coming through up top here. There we go. We have our first one through so bring that up and attach it to our cam buckle here . without making the other side fall down. Do the same to the other corner here. There we go, do the same.

All right, now we're going to do that for the remaining straps. While you're feeding these through I suggest you think of your favorite song. Just have that go through your head for a little bit. That makes it go quicker. We'll open up our little window here to open up our tailgate.

Just pull the remaining straps through . like so. Just a little bit tighter. Close it up and tighten up the other ones as much as we can. All right, there we go. Now, I'll go ahead and grab our bike and put it in place.

This does kind of sit up there a little funny but I swear to you this is how they sit. Turn the wheel, like so. It also comes with these hook and loop straps . to hook up your bike and kind of secure it. This can also carry surfboards or even inaudible 00:06:51 boards. However the hook and loop straps may not work with those so you can just find other straps on etrailer.com to secure them down. You can do that using these loops, periodically, on the top. There you have it for the Softride Shuttle Pad Tailgate Bike Carrier, part number SR26457 on our 2016 Ram 1500.
