I saw the video today looks super nice. Let us know how well the cooler does.

I do not have the tailgate,I see its on the website now for a pic.I do wish it was deeper and really it could be wider also.As thick as it is it should hold ice pretty good.I have only been out on short runs,maybe 2 hrs.

I've got the factory non-storage tailgate, and looks like this cooler would NOT fit, as you have to relocate the tie-down bolt / D-ring to the tailgate itself, and the cooler box uses that mounting bolt with the boxes rear plate mount.

I could be wrong, but maybe Super ATV can confirm.

I thought that too. The only thing I’d say is that it can attach to the relocated d ring mounts but yea super atv would have to confirm

Honestly, I don't think we've tried it with the OEM tailgate. If you fellas have a pic of the OEM tailgate installed, I can probably confirm or come up with some kind of alternative.

@SuperATV as promised here is the pic of the stock tailgate installed.
Man, I don't know. Its a close one. The bracket bolts to the original tie down location, below your stock tailgate. The box itself should fit, and that mounting bracket should stick enough to work....but I'm not sure how it would bolt up with the tailgate installed. I'm sure it can be made to work, but not sure if you'd have to make any modifications.
Here's the instructions, so you can check it out and compare.

Thank you for the reply and instructions. Looking at how the brackets mount, I can confirm it won’t work. Primarily because where the bolt and bracket meet, the stock tailgate has a special “threaded adaptor bolt” where the tailgate anchors down to. In addition, not sure if the bracket would clear underneath the tailgate as well as stick out far enough to anchor down the thumb bolts.

I really do like the design and mounting. Not to sure of the $250 price tag though. That does seem a little steep for a no name brand cooler. This coming from a yeti consumer.

Any progress on your tailgate design for a tailgate that actually opens? I haven't been able to get with my guy yet to modify mine. I would actually by another one at this point if it opened.

I'm still pushing for it. The guys in engineering are saying they don't like where it would have to mount, and that it wouldn't be very sturdy or have a good weight rating. Too much plastic and not enough support I guess. I have another buddy playing with a few designs though. Fingers crossed.

Copy that. Guess I'll keep working on it from my end. If I beat you to it, maybe I'll sell you my design... LOL! I learned from my rack design for my General not to just give away my ideas. ;)

Lol! Hell yeah buddy! I remember that General rack on the other forum. That was awesome!

How many cans does the cooler hold? Like the concept, usually have someone with me want to make sure there’s enough room for both of our beverages @SuperATV
A lot! Its pretty big, and stays cold all day. Can't say for sure the exact number it'll hold, but here are the specs.
Features

  • Insulated to keep drinks cold
  • 30-liter capacity
  • Rubber seal and heavy-duty latches keep out water, mud, and more
  • Two built-in cup holders on the lid
  • Built-in plug makes it easy to clean and drain
  • Outside dimensions (L x W x H): 22-3/8” x 20-7/8” x 12-1/2”
  • Inside dimensions (L x W x H): 15” x 16-7/8” x 7-3/8”
