    Hey guys I figured I'd post up this idea I came up with not to long ago and was finally able to finish up this weekend. I do a lot of camping and always thought to myself man it would be nice if the tailgate was one big cutting board so I could use it to prepare camp food. So I went on plasticcuttingboards.com and ordered a 54x20 sheet of 1/2" tan board and spent a week messing with it on the mill. Without too much work I was able to punch this out and it matches the truck pretty good!IMG_4105.jpgIMG_4106.jpg

    You do know that the metal cover is part of the structural support/ strength of your tailgate right? o_O Otherwise I think it is a neat idea.

    Looks like he just replaced the OEM plastic cover with a cutting board material fabbed up to fit in its place.

    Yeah the plastic cover is pretty thin, maybe 1/8" thick. I just use the waterport with a little soap and give it a good scrub when I'm done and it stays clean

    Reviving this thread. How did this workout? Did the plastic degrade? Did it stay dirty? Any issues so far?
