    Considering the year of your truck I'm thinking you're past the TSB deadline. Maybe you can check to see if anyone that has a tire gate that can sell their stock to you if color matches.

    Where are you located? Someone on here may be able to help a bit more if we know where we are looking.

    I've seen a few pop up on Craigslist here in Portland, you might check there. I'd guess they are probably stolen though.

    Do u let your 450r sit on the tailgate while hauling it? Just curious cause I load my 700xx in my 06 and I weigh about the same as you. I haven't noticed any damage to mine, but I have a long bed? Btw I'll call some junk yards by me and see if they have any gates. I only live about 3hrs from you.
