    I am using my truck to haul my dirt bike fairly often. The rear tire of my bike sits entirely on the tailgate. I may even load 2 bikes on occasion.

    Has anyone had issues with the 2009 tailgates or felt the need to reinforce it?

    If it is anything like the previous ones, you might want to do something. Underneath that cover lies 6 or 7 bands of the thinest metal known to man.
