    Wait - but the spacer would have to be on the tailgate... right?

    Technically, plywood would lay flat on the decked platform, with the tailgate in the 2nd open position. Just that the tailgate will be too low, so the weight of the plywood won’t stop it from sliding. You would just need to make sure to strap it down...

    At least that’s what I see in my head...

    The spacer would have to be on the tailgate, But if the bed is 5' long, but the decked system is 4 or so inches back, that means only just over half is sitting on the Decked, if you strap it down it'll probably be fine, wouldn't want to drive home from Iowa like that.

    Something like this, has to be 5" tall. I'd think about putting a rivnut into the tailgate so i wouldn't have to worry about having weight on it to stay put. , if made out of PLYWOOD, you could then put eyelets into it to strap stuff down right onto the tailgate.

    I'm not thinking of 8' long stuff, I'd want to be able to haul 12' stuff without having it fall out. I know with some kind of rack I could hang stuff out the front and wouldn't have to screw with the tailgate.......this might just be a temp fix.

    This is what I was thinking

    Make a wedge that fits between the decked system and tailgate. It should be able to get you 1 to 1.2 ft more supported length.
