    Hey all,

    I'm a Noob and I understand this has probably been answered but thought I'd ask the experts.

    I have a 2004 Double Cab and plan on moving my Motorcycle my question is will the tailgate hold that much weight when loading the bike. Obviously the whole bike will not be on the tailgate. But will it support the weight being loaded and has anyone moved motorcycles before that have some suggestions i may have overlooked.The motorcycle is a 2004 Ducati Monster and weights about 445lbs wet,.

    Any insight thoughts or precautions or anything I have missed would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

    Gray wire, Some lights in the bed area, and some character marks throughout.
    Just make sure your cables are in good condition. The tailgate can takw it, just check the cables and you should be good. I move my snowmobile the same way.
