TOP 4 WAYS TO UTILIZE YOUR TAILGATE

When it comes to the Toyota Tacoma, you want to be able to utilize the storage and capability to its fullest. Maximizing the effective uses of space and gear on or off road. Whether it's for around town, camping, biking, overlanding, work, or the many other truck things you need a truck to do, there are products that can help make life a little easier for you. One of the lesser utilized spaces on the toyota tacoma is the tailgate itself.

Here are the top 4 products for utilizing that empty space on your Toyota Tacoma's tailgate. 


1. MOUNTAIN HATCH:


The Mountain Hatch Tailgate Cutting board is a must have for the Tacoma tailgate. This product comes in either an orange/black, black, red/black, blue/black, white/black, orange, and red. This turns your tailgate into your own camping kitchen space. It replaces your OEM inner hatch panel giving you a much flatter space. It transforms your tailgate into a heavy duty FDA approved ½ plastic with UV inhibitor cutting board. Use it as a spot to put mugs or bottles with the cup holder insert, a table, or a place to cut and prepare your dinner. There is no extra hardware needed due to it using the oem screws and holes from the pre existing panel.

2. BILLIEBARS TACOMA TAIL GATE COVER

This tailgate cover from BillieBars was designed to be simple and easy to use, and it really lives up to that goal. This tailgate cover comes with two deep cup holders on either side and a marine grade padding that replaces hard plastic ridges from the oem panel.  The new surface has a textured grippyness to it that is extremely handy when placing things here that might normally roll or slip off. One of the nice things about the install is it uses all the existing hardware and holes to mount, boom piece of cake. This tailgate cover is one of our favorites because its so simple and always so helpful.

4. CACHE BASECAMP 


Looking to Tailgate or just hang out in the back? Well heres a tailgate chair we highly recommend. 

This is the Cache Basecamps 2.0 system.  They recreated this to come back better than ever, with their first edition already being a major hit. While it's not meant to be similar to the other products mentioned above, It's certainly handy to have in any tacoma. This tailgate system comes with two lounger chairs, a jeffrey cooler, and a basecamp pad for if you are bringing a bike along on your adventure. Each of these accessories to this tail gate system can be used on the pad or can be removed and used independently if needed. It also now comes with a newly designed tie-down strap that not only allows you to anchor down items such as surfboards, bikes, etc, but it can double as a dog leash. This system takes your setup to a whole new level, and can be as versatile as you need it to be.
