    Bed / Tailgate Protection from studs

    No doubt! From what I've read the option will be available on the high end Denali trim, so the only items they'd ever see might be a big screen TV from Best Buy. It will be interesting to see if the idgits offer the CF floor on the 3/4 tons in 2020.

    Bed / Tailgate Protection from studs

    I don't think you can stud that track. He's obviously headed for the mountains anyway! CF? In a truck bed? Will Ford have commercials of guys dropping sharp objects on it from a height? Idiots.

    Bed / Tailgate Protection from studs

    I should've asked this guy what he uses to protect the tailgate. I doubt he has to worry about the studs touching the box floor. I saw a 2019 GMC Sierra go thru the village tonight. I imagine carbides & studs would make a mess of the optional box that is coming down the pike (w/ floor made of carbon fiber).

    Bed / Tailgate Protection from studs

    I use a piece of 5/8 plywood, cut about 4’ x 3’. To this, I’ve attached a 2x2 which goes across the 4’ width. The 2x2 fits into the gap between the truck and the gate, so the plywood stays put when you’re launching and retrieving. I’ve got it so it’s about 60/40 on the tailgate and the bed of the truck. I find this is enough to elevate the track off the gate and the truck bed so it does not touch it. I also feel that this spreads the weight of the machine a little better, rather than the tailgate taking the majority of the weight. I’ve got it set up with about a 2” gap from the end of the tailgate. This allows the ramp to slip in under my long track sleds without having to lift the back of the sled up. i don’t worry about the carbides on the bed too much, but find this set up helps with them not ripping the tailgate step off as well. Notch out the spot where the carbides contact this plywood at the front, or it can sometimes catch as you’re backing off, until they get worn in.

    Buy or build a sled ramp JK I have seen aftermarket bed mats but never used 1. I thick they're rubber like truck mudflaps.

    Bed / Tailgate Protection from studs

    Lots of us have used a stall mat from TSC on the floors of our trailers for track mats. It is easily cut into strips the right width for the tracks with a jigsaw or even a heavy duty box cutter. Many have actually used cut up plastic box liners for the skis in the trailers with the carbides running between the grooves. I imagine a full size stall mat would work in the bed of your truck to protect the box liner.
  9. Sounds stupid, but I'm gonna ask anyways. Any ideas on products I could use to save the plastic drop in bed liner in my truck from getting tore up from studs and carbides on the sled when loading it in the back of the truck. Mainly on the tailgate is where I made a mess of things on my old truck. New truck is a 2015 Ford so it has the bed step in the tailgate as well that I wouldn't want to markup.

    Thinking of doing a Quebec trip ?

    We are planning on doing Gaspe this year for around 8 days as we never made it last year and another 8 day trip into northern Ontario. We are looking for a couple more to possibly join us in February for the Gaspe trip.

    Thinking of doing a Quebec trip ?

    We rent a cottage for a week and day trip out. 100-150 mile loops for 6 days can be easy. We like the Mauricie-Lanaudiere region. Last year we chose a town called St Come. Great trails in all directions and we could ride flat farmlands of the St Lawrence valley or the hills to the north. We were just east of St Donat and south of St Zenon. 2 sledding "hotspots" but traffic was never a problem. Climate has changed in Quebec too so winter is not what it used to be. Where we go we find the week before the Ontario family day holiday can get us decent temps and ok snow cover. And it's just an 8 hour pull from home, mostly on major divided highways

    2nd Annual Summer Sucks Party-

    Yeah. Yesterday morning I was looking for Nunz's address so I went searching on here. First thread that came up was started by Mother Christmas about the Parry Sound get together. Brought back some great memories! Sitting in the big white trailer, marshmallow gun fights, etc.

    http://ontarioconditions.com/forums/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=22912 Talking about Quebec got me thinking about last years trip. The video is from trails around the Val dor area. No music or editing because my computer crashes every time I try to edit video. I agree Gaspe area is a must for touring snowmobilers

    Nunz and Karen: thank you for hosting your second annual get-together. Much appreciated! Enjoyed the conversations with you and Karen, as well as with Sledjunk, Revrnd, Catinental Couch and Laura, The Navigator, GoBills and family, Muskoka Cat Guy, Mr Amendola, Brappman, and all the other hardcore summer-haters. Also loved the cheeseburgers and salad, doo dogs, butter tarts, and the Ski-Doo cake with your foot print on it. Looking forward to seeing you all again real soon.
