Pickup Truck Compatibility
HiddenHook will fit most pickup trucks on the road today. If you have a full sized pickup truck with no accessories that interfere with the hollow space in the tailgate (like a step), then you should be good to go!
Most mid-size trucks will accept HiddenHook as well. Some compact trucks do not have enough clearance in the tailgate for HiddenHook.
Wiring inside the tailgate, such as backup cameras, typically does not prevent the use of HiddenHook. Be sure to avoid these as you slide unit in.
The table below includes measurements and compatibility info for specific truck models that we've identified so far. We'll keep adding to this list, but in the meantime, contact us with questions about your particular vehicle, and we can guide you through checking your own model if we haven't seen it before!
* HiddenHook cannot be installed on the same side of tailgate with an external tailgate assist piston and will need to go on opposite side.
* Will not fit in trucks with built in ladder steps
