Seizmik Tailgate Bed Extender Rack - Feedback Request

Greetings Pioneer owners. Glad to be part of the community. Seizmik is looking for feedback on the following tailgate bed extender rack we are developing for the Pioneer 1000. Keep in mind, this is a pre-production (i.e. unfinished, proof of concept) rack. We are interested in thoughts on how the rack folds and stores away and whether there is interest in something like this for the Pioneer 1000.

I like the idea. Will this fit the 700-4?

Current plan is to roll the first one out for the 1000s this spring. However, our engineers feel that the stamping process for 700 and 500 versions will be similar, so those SKUs should follow soon after.

Here are a few more photos of the current, pre-production model. We are now working on the final details and adding a few tie down spots (suggestions for tie down spots anyone?, Bueller? Bueller?)

Wow!! That is absolutely incredible! Ironically, I found this posting while searching the internet looking for ideas on how to fabricate a bed extender for my 700-4, one that didn't have to be removed when not in use while the back seats up. I'm a decent amateur "engineer" and good with a plasma torch and welder, but this seems just about perfect...y'all must have put a lot of time into the design. As far as the tie down points, for front to back, I'd probably include a couple lay-flat D rings to attach to the back of the existing bolts in the rear seat. Then maybe several welded anchor points on the upper rail of the extender, possibly something similar to what's found on 4 wheeler racks (attached pic). Any idea on a price range for the 700 model? Are you thinking $350+? If you're looking for someone to field test the 700 model and maybe take some pictures or videos for you, I'd love to buy a prototype, especially if it's at a discount . Please keep us posted on the process and well done!

That looks great! I would be very interested in something like this for a 700-4. Honda should be ashamed by making a small cargo area with zero room for an ice chest and then charging $250+ to correct it. Be sure to post on here again when you get the 700 prototype ready.
