We do not color match the skins. Experience has shown that your local shop will do a better job of color matching to your specific truck. If you wish to paint the skin you can order your Elongator with an unpainted skin.
We also offer the Elongator in the following skin colors/patterns: Black Carbon Fiber White Carbon Fiber.
Steel, stainless steel and aluminum. The ramps are made out of aluminum. The rear skin, top and side caps are made out of ABS. This material is lightweight and tough. It can also be easily painted.
No. The Elongator is a completely integrated system and comes with the ramps. Besides, ramps are fun.

The Elongator Tailgate has been engineered to avoid this. The ramps nest together snugly in the ramp compartment. The extension then folds down to hold the ramps in even more tightly. Finally, the extension has been designed so that the bottom gets "pinched" between the back of the truck cargo bed and the bottom of the Elongator Tailgate. Nothing can move, nothing can rattle, nothing can fall out.
Yes - If your current truck has a backup camera you can have this as an option. Also, if you have a tailgate that remotely locks with your key fob you can order that option as well. Each of these items come as a bundled option.
It will still lock. The basic Elongator Tailgate comes with a separate physical key that unlocks our handle. The REMOTE LOCK works with newer trucks that have an OEM key fob. Your Elongator Tailgate can still be locked regardless of the option you select.
In 2018 we’ll introduce removable “gator modules” that snap into the extension making your Elongator Tailgate capable to do even more. The modules will be designed for all types of work and recreational activities.
The modules can be attached when you need them and easily removed when you don’t. And they won’t interfere with the extension function. In fact, you’ll still be able to use the extension at the 210 degree position with the module in place. Plus, we built the modules so that once your Elongator Tailgate is closed and locked they can not be removed or opened, which means your Elongator Tailgate is built for more – peace of mind, too!.

Proudly designed and made in the USA. Components are made in South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Georgia. Final assembly occurs in South Carolina.
The extension can hold 850 pounds when placed at 180 degrees. The ramps are rated at 700 pounds each.
Truck tailgates are fairly easy to remove (and thus install). Below is the general procedure. Your truck may have more specific instructions.
1: Remove the support cables from your existing tailgate. You will use them with the Elongator Tailgate.
2: If there are any cameras or remote lock cabling disconnect them.
3: Drop the tailgate about 1/4 down. There is a spot on the hinge that allows you remove it off the passenger side post first and then pop it off the drivers side.
4: Reverse the previous three steps to install the Elongator Tailgate.
5: Reward yourself with a cold beverage of your choosing.
6: Get used to people being even more envious of your truck.
