Product Details

Toyota Tacoma Access Cab / Double Cab 2008, VT Series Vertical Mount Tiregate by Wilco Offroad®. The Wilco Off-Road Tiregate Vertical Mount (VT) replaces the factory tailgate to carry an over size spare tire vertically over the rear bumper, freeing up precious cargo space. The Tiregate VT’s patented swing-away design allows for full use of the cargo bed – perfect for camping, crawling, working, or everyday use. The Tiregate VT installs with no drilling required. When it comes time to sell your rig, the factory tailgate is easily reinstalled with just a few bolts.

Wilco Offroad


  • Carry up to a 40-inch tire on full size trucks, or 35-inch tire on smaller trucks
  • Opens wide to allow full access to the truck bed
  • No-drill installation using the factory tailgate mounting points (most applications)
  • Double latch pins for added security
  • Bar with urethane wheel cone for rapid wheel mounting and dismounting
  • Black PVC-coated steel safety cable included

When die hard off-road fans prep their rig for a serious off-road excursion, the first thing they most likely do is an upgrade to monster size wheels for that tough, aggressive off-road look and enhanced traction. Oversize wheels that lift the vehicle up the ground, giving it a funky, really cool, rugged look, are all about that. One of the most important things when somebody’s going to head out on a trail ride or explore the wilderness is not to skimp out on the full-size spare. So, when you’ve already got a spare tire for your over size wheel, finding an ideal place to mount it can be a rather daunting task, cause bulky spares don’t normally fit in the stock location. So, this is when the Tiregate comes into play. The Tiregate is the ultimate solution for carrying a monster size spare safely and out of the way.

This top-of-the-line product replaces your factory tailgate and allows to reliably secure your spare while maintaining ground clearance and easy access to the tire for fast wheel changes if things get hairy. The Wilco Offroad Tiregate boasts the U.S. patented design: 7,100,956; 7,303,222. Made of 2-inch diameter premium grade steel tube, this gate offers a mandrel bent, MIG welded construction that can hold up to 150 lb. The black polyester semi-gloss powder coat gives the Tiregate an exceptionally durable, attractive finish that provides top-notch protection from the elements.

The Tiregate uses the factory tailgate mounting points on most applications and comes with zinc plated, grade 8 carbon alloy steel bolts for quick and easy installation. The Tiregate Y-Bar and polyurethane wheel cone mounts the tire rock-solid in place, allowing for rapid wheel mounting and dismounting and leaving precious cargo space. This gate opens wide for full use of the cargo bed – ideal for camping, crawling, working, or everyday jobs. This product has double latch pins that keep the gate securely closed. The Tiregate also includes a black PVC-coated steel safety cable that loops through a flush mounted D-ring, acting as a leash connecting the spare tire to the truck for added security.
