Reply To: Bike rack for truck


I have a Ram 1500 quad cab, with a locking tonneau cover, and I don’t really care for the tail gate pads. I use them when I have to carry more than two bikes, other wise I just use moving pads. I take off the front tires, lay one bike on its side rear tire in first, cover it with a moving pad, lay the other bike on the other side laying over on the pad. Then I throw in around the bikes, cooler, tool box, gear bag, and what ever.  Lock the tailgate, lock the tonneau, no one knows you are even carrying anything. Until I got the tonneau I never felt safe stopping to eat.
