  Slide up tailgate
  Posted by: mceb on Dec-19-12 2:17 PM (EST)

I have a Frontier crew cab which is not as big as the 150. I have big heavy rec tandem and do the "slide it up tailgate" method to get it up and into the saddles. Thule "water slide" is a pad that I use to protect the tailgate edge or you could rig up something homemade like bath mat. Rest front of boat on edge of tailgate, go to back and push it up into saddles. Mine goes right up no problem. Could also use a 2nd person acting as guide with rope off front end of boat.

I keep a 2 foot alum. step ladder to help get to some spots on tie downs.
