Tire gate!?

So my dad got this tire gate for his f-250 but it looks hideous on his truck!!! He decided to give me a present haha 700 bux i would never pay for one of these but hey free i'll rock it... Its kinda growing on me and def way easier to get the tire down. Now i need a farmers jack to mount behind it and some back up lights!

For utility or vacations (pulling a trailer or something), it would probably not stand out much. But I don't think I'd go driving around like that. It sort of sticks out like a sore thumb.

But then again, everyone's different. So if you like it, that's all that really matters.

Maybe if you have some sort of an off road tire and wheel on it with a cap, but man that is harsh!

that would be a good spot for a fire hose and put a water tank in the bed of the truck.

I'd melt that down and make it into a steel plate bumper. No freaking way I'd drive around like that.

What I don't get is, and I'm not trying to beat you up BUT, if it looked "hideous" on an F250, why on earth would you think it would look good on a Tacoma?
