Yes I do have melting problems. Be careful. Soot and diesel pee no. But be dang careful with the temperature. I melted a strap and melted a battery I was carrying. I diddnt even think about it when I was loading the basket

Just get one that comes out and up. Not a straight flat one. I ran a 1200 mile round trip just last month with this type and had no issues.

Gobrowntruck21, that's kinda what I was thinking...

Moparecodiesel that stinks, that is what I was afraid of.... I was strapping up my boat cover yesterday and notice the amount of heat coming from the pipes

Yeah get one that goes up or get a hitch extender. It gets really hot when you hit a regen

If you're really pressed about it, cover or simply make your straps/tie downs from exhaust wrap.

Has anyone had trouble with tailgate down for long trips or stuck in traffic damage do to regen.
I think it should be far enough away should be ok , just would like to be sure.

Well I've had the tailgate trim replaced a a few times already. First time was completely stupid. Was hauling a couch with tailgate down. Maybe 65MPH and the wind catching in the sides broke the tabs for the tailgate cap. Dealer replaced without issue. Second time I was standing on bed side loading freight and stepped on the tonneau cover rail that overhangs, bent down a bit. Went to close the tailgate; Broke the same tab again warranty no issue. Most recently broke it, well twice. Loading a ATV. Tire slipped and ripped the plastic, hadn't replaced it yet, and broke the spot next to it taking a dirtbike out without ramp. Oops.

Haven't gotten around to replacing that one yet. Don't think I can claim warranty. Ended up getting a cap and it got covered by the leer tailgate cover anyways. Good enough for now. That plastic cap is a crappy design. I don't care for it

But the regen or exhaust heat hasn't done any damage anyways!
