down tail gate alarm

By Reay A.

i have an f150 with the back up alarm as i get close to an object when in reverse, i always back my truck in the driveway, i was parked and had the tailgate down and when i drove forward to leave my street to a main street i heard a crash and low and behold my tool box slid out of my truck all over the street tools everywhere and damaged as well. i thought it would be wise to have an alarm when you put it in gear that would tell you it is down ,or an icon on the dash. its great when it is down and you put it in reverse the alarm is loud but when you put in gear to go forward it would be great so i know that i made that mistake not to close the gate . tough as you get older to remember eveything thank you reay antonelli
