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

Key factors - increased visibility but still able keep crap from falling out.

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
