Tailgate Modifications
 
My father messed up his tailgate when he forgot to lower his tailgate while unhooking his 5th wheel.

So this is the result after my uncle, a master builder, fixed it.

Sharp! I like the custom decal too. Looks much better than a gate made from square tube and mesh, which is what I usually see on trucks used with a fifth wheel.

That is a terrific Mod

How did he set up the tailgate release function
a pix or 2 of the hidden side of the tailgate would be nice

I'll try to get you that picture, but it's basically a spring loaded metal loop located on the top inside corners that you pull on to release the gate.

Nicely done, that's different.

Now that's innovative! Really like the mod as I'm not a fan of the blow-through tailgates you typically see with 5th wheels.

Nicely done! Kudos to your uncle! :smileup:
