Find a junk tail gate, and remove the hinges. Or buy a set of Dorman's (for your truck), at local auto parts. Get a 2x8 or 2x10, cut to width of your tailgate. Mount inside hinge, attach to truck, you may be able to use existing supports. Add a reversed wheel chock in center, if thats where your bike is riding at. Can put on and off, just like a normal tail gate as needed. Makes a good temporary work bench if needed as well, we did this on a Ford F150. Worked good.
