Don't know if this is the right place for this but I didn't really know where else to put it. Does anyone know how much weight the tailgate can handle when flipped down? I have an 06 SCREW short bed and I want to see if I can fit my motorcycle that has a 61.8 in long wheelbase and weighs about 550 lb (with a bed extender cage around it)? thanks.
The tailgate on mine or any Ford for that matter is made to withstand more than I can lift on it. I've ramped rototillers, huge snowblowers, heavy furniture you name it with my weight on it also and have had zero issues. It is the last thing I worry about.
