    Is there a stronger tailgate than stock? I have destroyed two already.

    Does the tailgate shut with the 4 wheeler loaded? If so you could remove the tailgate until the 4 wheeler is loaded.

    Really though, how much weight are we talking with you and the quad together?

    I think he was responding to me about removing the tailgate while loading the quad.

    Ohhh ok...for a sec I was trying to picture how he was loading the quad and driving over the tailgate while the ramps are on the bumper. :confused: :p

    I'd probably go with a trailer also if you're now looking for a third tailgate.
