Q Ed • 09/29/2022, 8:20:40 AM How much additional weight (in addition to the weight of this basket) can be added to a sasquatch spare tire before tailgate damage is a concern?
A 10/11/2022, 5:25:24 PM Ford rates the tailgate at a "Maximum Recommended Door Weight" of 133 lbs. Beyond that would be at the owner's discretion. We will be coming out with a tailgate reinforcement soon to help with capacities.

A 10/11/2022, 5:25:24 PM Ford rates the tailgate at a "Maximum Recommended Door Weight" of 133 lbs. Beyond that would be at the owner's discretion. We will be coming out with a tailgate reinforcement soon to help with capacities.

Q Michel • 01/24/2023, 4:04:55 PM Can the rack accommodate a 3-gallon rotopax with the measurements of 15 inches wide, 16 inches tall, and 4.5 inches deep? Thanks
A 01/30/2023, 4:32:56 PM We designed the basket around 2-gallon cans, we haven't tried 3 gallons cans on there as they will likely hit the tire.
Q Scott • 02/14/2023, 8:40:01 PM Will this work on a 2000 Ford SVT Contour? I assume since both Ford's yes. If so will it work with a 3" lift and staggered tires? Last question, how many hot dogs can it hold?
A 02/14/2023, 8:49:36 PM Dearest Scott, Sure will, strap this bad boy on your roof with some harbor freight green ratchet straps through the door frames and roll up those purple tinted windows. Lift doesn't matter but your Contour sounds dope. What's your favorite flavor vape? Hot dog capacity is classified, but rest assured, it's more than a man can handle. Keep it rubber side down brah.

A 03/13/2023, 4:14:43 PM We haven't tried to mount a tank to it. We would stick to 5lb tanks as they weight about 15 lbs loaded.
Q Shierei Huang • 03/01/2023, 1:38:40 AM Will the basket contact the back of the Bronco if the tailgate is fully open?
A 03/13/2023, 4:49:56 PM Not with accessories mounted as shown with the stock spare tire mount. If you are running this on one of our adventure carriers, it could depend on what you mount on it, and how far offset the tire is on our carrier.
Q Felipe Hernandez • 03/18/2023, 12:20:34 PM Is it possible to add recovery tracks on the rear face instead of in the basket on top

Might even work for other than pizza (considering trying with Italian subs)
(Tucson, AZ) | September 18th, 2022
Although I've only gotten pizza twice since installation, this carried the load with absolutely no issues. Keeping the pizza in the bright Arizona sun is really brilliant as it was piping hot when I got home. The 2 liter soda attachment worked for both cola and diet but I have not tried it with the Mountain Dew shown in the picture. I am considering trying this with hot sandwiches next weekend if my schedule allows. * Of course, this was entered entirely in jest and I hope you find reviewing and denying this review funny and not offensive in any way. The product is very cool and reminded me I need to get a murder spork as shown and this to mount it on.
