    A few weeks ago I got antsy on tailagate storage and started looking around Mud for options. After striking out on some of the vendors websites here I stumbled onto Huracan and their storage options. On a whim I emailed them to see if US shipping was even an option and got almost an immediate reply with yes! After the install and having a few weeks of my new tailgate storage I can say that I am really happy with the purchase. The tailgate is significantly heavier but that is obviously understandable. I have a ton of recovery gear, jumper cables, lights, shoes, work gear, etc hidden in the tailgate now. All and all and very easy mod that provided a much needed storage solution.

    Shipping was fast and install went fairly easy after you get past the whole cutting your rig stuff..... Make sure to paint your cut lines to avoid rust. Beside that take your time and have fun. I did watch this video before starting for moral support ;)



    One thing that I ran into was the metal balancing rods in the tailgate. They are angled behind the tailgate section that gets cut out. I weighted them down and cut them out as well. Also, I did not and do not reccomend cutting the center brace out to fit a rifle or something long. Look at it as 2 small storage areas and you will be fine ;)

    Huracan also sent me their labeled sound deadening material. I really liked that and it went in fairly simply. I did my best on the install and am pretty happy with the results for a first timer. I love the fact that there is no metal on metal sounds as I open and close the tailgate.

    My interior is tan/beige and they only offer black marine carpet so I chose the powder coated option. I am thinking about covering it a faux teak SeaDek or a tan surfboard/sup traction pad.

    I linked the folder of pics I took below and if there are any questions feel free to contact me or comment below.
