    tiregate is the only maker for the tail gate tire carrier replacements, they carry the current patent that makes them the only people allowed to make a tire carrier that can replace your tailgate. many vedors such as 4xinnovations tried to make a cheaper version, but were threatend by tiregate so had to stop production. Thats why you will see some guys have different kinds of tiregate knock off's, but those will most likely be one of a kinds....the tiregates are sold everywhere, just have to research to find the best price. bought mine from james oaks online store for 773.00 shipped to my door so they are not cheap, but thats because tiregate has the current monopoly on them so can charge that price and unless you can fab your own, your going to have to pay the high price. ill post the pictures of mine tomorrow during lunch dont feel like messing with getting them off my phone right now cause its late, but the tiregate looks awesome and have gotten numerous thumbs up since even a hour after installation, so definitely a head turning upgrade thats for sure.

    Looks like 6" fabtech. Truck looks great other than the lift. Not trying to be a dick, I'm just not a fan of DB lifts. But if it's working for you, keep rockin it.
