I'm 6'4" and with a standard style tailgate down it is still difficult to reach items in the bed. With this gooseneck extra long tailgate it's going to be worse. Would have at least liked a step since the 180 version was cancelled.

The space where the spare tire goes they were advertising as a great usable space to fill with ice and tailgate from. Now that the gate cant fold and you wont be able to reach it that space becomes less useful.

Works for front of the bed, not the back or bed trunk.
So sitting on the tailgate and grabbing a beer from that position won’t work either? Asking for a friend…

The more you drink, the more horizontal you’ll become, thus making the beers progressively easier to retrieve.
