    Tailgate Alternatives

    Any pics of custom tailgates? Tube, sheet metal, whatever.

    I’ve seen a few built using expanded metal in place of the sheet metal. Looked like they use the factory hinge kit and cables.

    Something along these lines:

      I had considered a gate like that with a 5th wheel cut out. I saw a pic of one once that was a tube frame with some dimple die’d plates, pretty cool but unfortunately I don’t possess that much talent. lol

                    My M1028 has these braces.

                    2x6 boards can be put in the slots

                        Military parts that come with every truck that comes as a shelter carrier.
