They also make a trailer hitch that goes in the receiver, though I'd imagine they'd screw that up as fbp's post can attest.

On a side note, I once witnessed a tailgate failure:

At our home race track, a brand spanking new truck was towing its race car down the return road... two people sitting on the dropped tailgate (common practice) enjoyed a slow speed ride back to the pits... they hit a little bump and the tailgate cables failed...

The tall guy touched ground quickly and high stepped out of the way without incident... the much shorter young lady tipped completely over center, ate some asphalt and got "plowed" a few more feet (by the race car in tow) before the outfit stopped. She was chewed up pretty bad, no serious injuries, but painted head to toe with a road rash brush.

Anyhow, I highly doubt that young lady has put her tail on a moving tailgate since, much less ride "counterweight" on load of lumber at road speed!
