T7 in bed of Toyota Tacoma?


Recommended Posts

Anyone transport their bike in a shortbed Tacoma (5ft bed)? 

I was thinking about using Ready Ramps, which fold into a bed extender thing, but I'm wondering if the overall length of the bike is too long for this strategy.

Or if it would work with the bike angled across the bed?

Don't have the bike yet, but total length of the truck (to end of tailgate) is 81".

I've hauled it in a 6ft bed and the rear tire sits exactly  on the crack between the bed and tail gate.   That stock photo probably won't work straight but if you load it like a dirt bike, it might work.  I can close the tailgate on my dirt bike by angling it.  Sorry I'm not more help.

On second thought, I don't think that's going to work for you.  Maybe do a mock up before you buy it.

Promo pic from dealer when I picked it up,  Ranger with a 5' bed. It was just loaded and still had a couple inches to go up, center of tire sat just at or slightly past center of tailgate, doubt you would get the ready ramp on there, but the bike will fit fine. Angle may be worth a shot, but I think it would still be snug.

Stupid 5' beds!! Da wife has one on her older GMC Canyon. Can't even fit your cross country skis in it decently.
