Installing the Gator Rubber Tailgate Mat is quick and easy; however, some drilling is required. All mats are vehicle specific, pre-cut to precise dimensions for a flawless fit. To install, line the mat up with the edges of your tailgate and use the included self-tapping screws to secure the mat in place.

If you frequently haul cargo in your pickup’s bed, whether lumber, tools, or anything else, consider ordering a premium Gator Rubber Tailgate Mat for the ultimate protection against impacts and abrasions.
