^ very cool.
The strap and buckle would be on the inside of the tailgate (which on my truck is covered in bedliner) so not an issue. It's the exterior paint on the tailgate that could get damaged from abrasions from the bag itself.To help protect the paint, how about using a short piece of bicycle inner tube over the strap and buckle.
Sorry, I must have read it wrong as I thought you were just unsure about the fit. Now that I see your photo, I know what talking about. Are the straps long enough to go around the bumper? I know when I open my tailgate there is a gap fairly large as I have dropped ratcheting straps through there.
The other idea mentioned above looks like a great idea, and if you decide to change locations later, those hooks can be used for other things as well.
EDIT: After searching it looks liek the straps cant be extended qite a bit.. lol
I can't speak for other trucks but on my 2nd gen there's plenty of room between my tailgate and the lip of my bed. I can easily fit my finger in the gap when its down, and if I didn't have weatherstripping I could probably still manage to fit a pinky with it closed. No problems at all with the straps on my trasharoo. My last trip (~3500mi including rocky off roading, dusty trails, and lots of freeway miles) had no issues at all with the trasharoo. It did scuff up the paint on my tailgate a bit by the end...Do you guys have any problem with the bag getting pinched between the tail gate and bumper when you drop the gate?
FWIW I have a seal around my bed for a tonneau cover and I ran the trasharoo just fine. I had to unhinge my tailgate to slip the buckle through the hinge area but once I did no problems whatsoever.Bumping up an old thread as I have the same need: would love to have a Trasharoo bag, but don't have a tire carrier. An added complication is that I have a tailgate seal installed between the bed and the tailgate, so running straps under the tailgate is not possible. Any other ideas for how to mount/carry this bag? 2016 Tacoma with a Leer cap/shell on it.
When I used ours I didn't have an issue with that particular spot (between the tailgate and bed) but when I had ours full my problem area was with the bumper. We ran ours offset so we could still access our tailgate latch but when the T-roo was filled, and we began to open the tailgate, the T-roo would hit the bumper and begin to push up on the tailgate which wanted to pop it off it's hinge. If the T-roo shifted down then it made contact with bumper and then not want to open. If we moved it to the middle then it covered the latch and made it a pain to open.Do you guys have any problem with the bag getting pinched between the tail gate and bumper when you drop the gate?
I used a Trasharoo on a 2nd gen Tacoma with a shell.As I’m looking at these ideas, the same issue came to my mind that the previous poster mentioned. When you have trash in it and open the tailgate what happens? Does the bag impede the opening of the gate at all? I’m considering this for a first gen Tacoma with a campershell.
