Tailgate Mod

In my trucks first life it was a Plumbers truck and the tailgate was pretty rough, so I decided to cut the bad part out and make life a little easier for the 5th wheel, I lowered the latch so it works the same as the original, a couple coats of Dupont Victory Red

Great job and now putting groceries in the back is MUCH easier
If you really are sad and think nobody cares, just try missing a few payments ! '11 Monaco Diplomat 43DFT RR10R pushed by a Demco Excali-Bar II hitch which is pushed by a '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport.

My 4th truck and I never used stock tailgate, they are very unpractical. I make my own heavy V gates and access to my rear tool box is so great. Also I keep a ball hitch on and stepping in the box is so simple.
