    I was backing up my trailor and motorcycle and somehow the locking mechanism unlatched and crashed into my tailgate. Is there any company that makes some type of tailgate that is like the tube style? I kinda want something different.

    Metal fab shops can put together essentially whatever you'd want back there. The only question is how much you are or aren't willing to pay.

    I got to looking into those tire gates, they look great. If I got one though id probably cut the tire mount off and get a piece of flat bar steel or aluminum to cut Tacoma into it with a plasma cutter. How do yall think that would look?
