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.
thanks for the info man. I did that but I used a 2x12 that way I would have a little play room when positioning the bike and cut the corners off at a angle and it worked great. I towed my bike and the TT from nc to ky with no problems. I didn't use the wheel chock because the day that I had a chance to get the stubby tailgate put together it was the day I was leaving and the one I ordered didn't come in in time.
My next question is anyone interested in a ARE tonneau cover? Im selling mine for cheap and its in good condition. I have it posted in the FOR SALE section of the forum. I haven't gotten any pictures up yet because I haven't had a day off since I went up to KY. Im selling it for 500 and will ship it if the buyer can find someone who will ship it. Buyer pays shipping.
