    I'm wanting to get a tiregate but i haven't heard of any for the 1st gen tacomas. I've seen a few members with 2nd gens have them and I really like the idea. Does anybody know if they make one, where to get one, and how much they would cost?

    Kevin also owns a fabrication shop. You could always go to a place in CA (I'm sure there are TONS) and have them build you one.

    I ordered one for my 99 Tacoma from truckcandy.com, its made by Wilco Products. You can check out their website as well wilcoproducts.com to see the different set-ups. mine was like $750 through truckcandy so you have an idea on how much they are.

    I looked at the tiregate ones on a few different websites and I'm not too inclined to throwdown 800 buks on a tiregate. I like their PR gates (mounted inboard) and their VT gates. Not sure which to go with though. What do you guy's think???

    4xinnovations made one once...and then promptly got a nastygram from tiregate to cease production as they were almost identical

    SARsquid on TTORA has it on his truck

    I like the angled one a bit better. It seems a bit more compact to me, but also allows you to reverse it so you have extra room if need be.

    I was considering getting something like this myself, but I read many concerns and pics of the frame bending and causing an angled gap between the bed and cab due to the constant extra weight. Should be fine if you're always on the road though, or you seriously reinforce the frame.

    I cant seem to find pics of it, but here's where someone talks about it a bit: http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum/showthread.php?t=122872&page=2#37
    http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum/showthread.php?t=125131

    So, just be careful with adding extra weight behind the wheels.

    That's a good point. I didn't think about that possibility.

    The previous owner of my truck put a Badlands non-tiregate rear bumper on my truck...I like it, and it comes in different custom setups, such as this:
