I understand tuffr2... When I had my Grand Cherokee, I had to open the rear hatch to see the little 4x8 trailer we used... If I can see it, I can put it anywhere,,, but,,,, We'll see how this new Silverado does when we get a TT or 5th....

I have a few different ball mounts for the hitch receiver. I had to swap them out one day and got the "other" ball mount out of the bed of the truck and closed the tailgate. As I'm down there swapping them out, I see the tailgate start to fall open!
I managed to get my head clear, but it hit my left shoulder so hard, it dented the upper edge of the tailgate.
Needless to say, that hurt and I now always make sure the tailgate is really latched shut.

So in this case, it really was "I" that dented the tailgate!

TDI - that is an odd way to dent your tailgate. I was expecting the tailgate to hit the other ball hitch that you set on the bumper.

At least you did not back it into something...

Didn't read the whole thread, but a simple solution is a flag on a rod that you can line up to the center of your tailgate...

Wonder how the literally 10's of thousands of boaters before managed it ?

teasing of course,
but we did test drive the new 2016 f150 platinum today and it is NICE...

Wife likes it better than her Explorer Sport we are turning in at end of lease and it, unlike the 6.7's in the 250 and 350's, actually SOUND good!

If you really are sad and think nobody cares, just try missing a few payments ! '11 Monaco Diplomat 43DFT RR10R pushed by a Demco Excali-Bar II hitch which is pushed by a '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport.
