Our swing out tailgates can have issues clearing a loaded receiver hitch cargo basket.
Today I combined a bicycle style receiver mount(with tilt feature) and a receiver cargo basket. This bicycle unit also has a nice built in 6" lift feature to it so the cargo basket is higher off the ground. With the simple pull lever, the tailgate clears the basket even when loaded high. The tilt feature is what I wanted mostly for a up coming road trip. I did not want to be unloading the basket to gain access to the back cargo area. The name on the bicycle carrier is Sports Works.

Real excitement, I rotated tires. They were due rotation and I've been thinking about taking it to the dealer for a Wave rotation and oil change. As I walked by it today I saw something stuck in the right rear and it was a bit low. Turns out it was a casing from a .22 A bunch of us from work went to the range yesterday and an

expended case found its way into my tire. I have an appointment at Discount Tire tomorrow for new tires on the Tundra, so I just did a 5 tire rotation and put the bad one in the back of the truck for them to fix. At least the timing wasn't too bad and I got home with it yesterday.

Looks close to the sidewall..... questionable whether they will repair it... Pic you have is not that great so.. maybe it is not as close to the sidewall as it looks when viewing with my smartphone.

Where did you get that cargo mat from? I like it.
JOYTUTUS Cargo Mat
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B089VJ38GG

I try to list everything I've done with a link to the item in my showcase. I really like the mat. It only covers the rear cargo area though. When I lower the rear seats they're not covered. So far that hasn't been an issue.

Jeetops? Did you need to do the loaners? Time?
Yup, Jeetops with loaners.

I don’t remember the exact time it took, but I didn’t mind since I had loaners. Maybe 6-8 weeks from start to finish?

Note: mine are painted with raptor for a black finish; when you receive them from Jeeptop they still have a white interior frame (i.e. the same finish as the standard hard top).
