    Length would be the issue.....have to hit up metal by the foot or something. Not to mention a brake for bending something the length of a tailgate..

    We could make a poor man's brake press by screwing down some 2x4's and hammer on the steel.

    I am a fan of the SDHQ, pop into the store when I'm in PHX. These look like nice additions to your rig.

    *edit* that sticker is 2.5-3 hp minimum.

    Might take this to my friend with the waterjet. He might've mentioned that he had a brake press too.
    I'll need to grab the dimensions from https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/weak-tailgate-reinforcement-solution.29117/page-3 can't see the picture at work, and send them with him. I'm going to find another CAD program for drawing this stuff up, then I can start designing a whole lot of parts for our trucks. :D Gonna be first on my list after I finish this work bench project. I'll throw up some pictures of that after work too.

    One singular piece would be better....metal by the foot or someone could get you on piece.
    Trial and error......but several make the tailgate caps....

    Ah, I just noticed it was only 2'. Thanks for pointing that out. True, but if I can do it for under $50 I'm saving myself money in my mind. Time is no issue, money is. Mobtown sells it for $80 + shipping, KB Voodo is $95 + shipping, and Relentless Fab's is the full tailgate at $149 + shipping. I'm a cheap ass, but I'm going to make it out of 14GA steel all the same as the vendors. So its same quality, just more steps to get there. Then I'll probably end up spraying it with liner or something. I don't know, just sounds like more fun to make it my own. I might go as far as making some small cubbies in the gaps of the tailgate frame if I reskin the whole thing. Now that's something new.

    Just checked metal by the foot, on their website they don't carry 14 ga, 3/16 is the thinnest they have. I might give them a call tomorrow morning and keep looking around.

    EDIT: NVM I found it under sheet not plate.

    What do you think about a reinforcement plate that had storage like this? I'd round the edges on the backsides so you wouldn't get corner punctures if your tailgate got dented from the backside. I'd think it'd add to the rigidity of the back skin too. Add some foam glued to them between the skin and the bottom of the cubby as well. Thoughts? Would anyone be interested in something like this? I don't know how much actual space there would be until I do some measurments. I'd think it could be sealed and used to store first aid supplies.
    Not my truck if anyone was wondering lol
