Not just for bikes

I got the large for my Ram 1500. It fits great and looks good, too! It holds 6 bikes well, and also protects my truck and paddle board when I'm not biking.

Awesome pad

I've only had it for a week but it's already helped us haul our bikes on 4 rides. The smaller size fits my Nissan Frontier perfectly and really is the easiest way to haul bikes if you have a pickup. The build quality is excellent.

Great Product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used the Dakine Pick-Up Pad almost every day for the last 5 years, and it is worth every penny. It is easy to put on your truck and easy to use. Extremely durable.

How to install your Dakine Pickup Pad

How to install your Dakine Pickup Pad

Anyone with a 2014 or higher Tundra have issues with their backup camera or does it fit so it doesn't block it?

Responded on

It has a 'kickstand' to hold the flap up for your back up camera

Blocks 2014 RAM 1500 Backup Camera

Waited to order this until they released a version that is "compatible with most backup cameras". Chatted with Backcountry to verify compatibility. When installed found it blocks camera. Installation too time consuming to complete each time I want to use.
Overall, looks like a very nice pad. Well made. Just doesn't work for me.

Did you try the bikes on the truck? I want to know if there's any problem with the bikes fitting and strapping down over the very wide tailgate on the ram?

Responded on

I have a Ram 1500 too, and it holds my bikes very well.

Works Great

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

So far it works great! The large fits the back of a Toyota Tundra perfectly. Love having it.

Best way to transport bikes in a pickup

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you own a pickup, forget every other way to transport bikes. This is by far the simplest and most stable way to move bikes (especially heavier AM/DH) from point A to point B. It fits my Dodge 2500 perfectly, does't block my license plate or tail lights, and keeps everything safe and sound.

What size of pad would I need for a Toyota tacoma?

Responded on

The width of the Tacoma bed is usually 57 in, the 54 inch should work just fine.

Save your truck and your bike

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

This pad in the small size fit my Nissan Frontier 2012 perfectly. With up to 7 different hook and loop straps to keep the bike in place as well it can handle as many bikes as your truck bed will fit. So far it has prevented all scratches and marks from and onto bikes, keeping both rides looking clean and new! A little bit on the expensive side, but hey, it's worth it to keep your toys looking brand new!

Great (but expensive) Tailgate Pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Dakine tailgate pad is the best method I've found for moving lots of bikes in my truck. Durable, multiple straps to hold frames in position, soft underside to protect paint. Negatives: (1) fairly expensive for how simple the pad is, (2) snagged a few pedals when lifting bikes in and out and the material started to rip, and (3) threading the straps under the tailgate takes some finesse.

PERFECT! Get rid of that towel

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a no brainer purchase if you bike a lot and have a truck. So simple to get bikes in and out, can hold up to 7 bikes (depending on the truck) and it looks bad ass too.

It also has frame straps to stop the bikes from leaning over when you turn. Just make the purchase if you are still on the towel program you won't regret it.

Perfect For Your Truck

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pad is great, I used to just have a towel and a door mat going over my tailgate that would just flap around and move. Luckily I picked this up and it rarely comes off my truck. I have a 05 Nissan Frontier, I got the size small and it fits perfect, I have enough room to use all the top straps if needed. Haven't had any issues with it coming loose, just make sure you're threading it correctly on the cinch.

Great but not perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have had this pick up pad for about 2 months now and I really like it. It holds lots of bikes very easily but has a few things I don't like. The straps tend to loosen up after a day of being installed and the straps are impossible for me to slide under the tailgate all by myself. I need someone to slide them from under the down tailgate to me, unless you have insanely long arms you can not do it alone. This is on a 2010 Sierra, other trucks with larger gaps between the tailgate and truck bed may be different.

why is this pad so much more expensive now...

why is this pad so much more expensive now ,ordered one a few months ago and paid considerably less 79.95 for the same item.Can't you sell me this one for the same price,i have bought a fair amount of stuff from you!

Best Answer Responded on

Pricing is dependent on cost, model year, and season. Ski gear is going to be more expensive in the fall/winter than it will be in the spring/summer, bike gear is going to be cheaper in the winter than the spring/summer. The previous pad may have been sale priced do to a closeout buy we may have gotten from DaKine. Please give our CS line a call, 801-736-6396 x4378 and we can see if any accommodations can be made.

Couldn't be a better picture. I was just wondering how it would fit on my Tacoma. Thanks man.

Responded on

I have a tacoma also and was wondering how it'd work! what size is that pad?

Responded on

I have a 98 Tacoma and I bought the Large as a gift for my bro in-law who has a burly dodge and I didn't put it on my truck but I thought it would be to large if I did the large is super wide and I feel as though it would extend past the tail gate

Responded on

Small is the size you want for a first gen Tacoma (1995?2004). You'll want a large for anything 2005 or newer. It will cover the entire tailgate. (You can see how there's still some tailgate showing in Andrew's photo.)

Responded on

Hope this helps: Large fits best on full-size trucks. F-250 and the ilk. Anything smaller, and you want the small, which is the one pictured on the Tacoma.

If you have a truck and ride a bike..

...then you probably want this, or already have it. Face it: the pile of blankets/carpet/pads you have on there now is doing neither your bike or your tailgate any favors. This pad is the real deal, and a quantifiable upgrade over the McGuyver solution.
