Before the Pro Access Tailgate graces the bed of the 2024 Ford F-150, let's rewind the clock and dive into the rugged history of Ford tailgates – the unsung heroes of the everyday worker's ride.
For almost a hundred years, Ford has been in the game of making trucks that roll up their sleeves and get the job done. And right there in the back, the tailgate has been the trusty sidekick, evolving alongside the needs of hardworking folks – from those loading up station wagons to the ones hauling gear in their trucks.
So, forget the fancy terminology. Pull up a crate or grab a spot on the tailgate itself, and let's flip through the pages of history. This isn't just about metal and mechanics; it's about the blood, sweat, and grit of the fleet driver.
From hauling tools on the ranch to delivery packages, these tailgates have seen it all. We're not talking high-tech here; we're talking about practicality, simplicity, and the kind of tailgate you can rely on when you've got a hard day's work behind you.
So, kick back, take a load off, and join us in celebrating the unsung journey of Ford tailgates – the real backbone of the vehicles that have been there for the blue-collar worker, day in and day out. It's not just a tailgate; it's a story of hard work and dependability that's been rolling strong for generations. Let's take a peek into the world where the rubber meets the road and the tailgate meets the dirt.
