    ^You convinced me. I'm in if there's another group buy.

    Nimrod, You truck is looking good!

    Swordknives, Thanks for the review, it is good to hear from an actual user.

    I am in for one of these as well (as I mentioned about 4 times here), probably in steel to maximize the strength. As for paint, I will use a good primer and chassis paint on the inside to keep the rust away, but I want something durable on the exposed face.

    I need something on the bed floor as well because stuff slides around way too much on the stock bed even when driving easy. So maybee get the bed floor and the tailgate sprayed with rhinoliner or a DIY version. Durability is important so I need something that will hold up to sliding wood boxed across it.

    Thanks, man.
    I plan to coat it with Raptor Liner. As for stuff sliding around in the bed, a rubber bed mat is the way to go. Stuff will still slide on a sprayed in bedliner.

    I would be interested if there was another attempt at a group buy. I just can't right now. Income tax, property tax, homeowners and auto insurance all hit last month and this month, so I am completely broke until at least March or April.

    So i said I would post pics so here you go.

    Truck and tailgate are dirty do to a romp off road the other day she will get a bath this weekend but you guys are getting the dirty pics :p

    from behind
    [​IMG]

    good shot of an edge and the door molding I used
    [​IMG]

    This shows an edge and the curve of the tailgate.
    [​IMG]

    Tail gate open looking down
    [​IMG]

    Side view you can also see the curve of the tailgate and the gap I mentioned. the Gap looks bigger in the pic than it really is (i cannot fit my little finger in the gap it is that small fwiw) and there is no play between the tailgate and the Plate.

    I'm interested too if it's soon enough. I also take my motorcycles to the track and it lies on my short bed. I was wondering if it would be safe to use ST stands attached to tailgate?

    So you guys want to get this going again? I think we're ready to do the GB if you'd all like. Lets get a list together now and then I'll send out a PM after we get at least 10 signed up. Payment all as a group, then I'll build the orders all at once.
