    Looking for a tailgate, preferably kinda damaged to keep costs down. It will eventually be chopped up so I'm not looking to buy a mint condition gate, that would be a waste.

    It'll be for a prototype tiregate-ish contraption if you're wondering:D:D

    Thanks guys, again not looking to purchase mint condition. Looking to keep costs down and if possible I'll do pick up to save some $$.

    I'll have mine for sale in +/- a couple months when we fab up a flatbed for my rig. Don't have an exact price, but I generally sell this kind of stuff for cheap. Plus I'm fairly close to you (2-3 hours). It's in great shape.

    I am about 5 hrs north of SD
    Sweet man that flat bed conversion will look sweet.

    I'll be sure to check with you down the road, hell I might even do a pick up just for the trip.

    Who's doing the build on the bed?

    thanks man. and actually, give me about a month or less and I should have that tailgate to sell to you. Shoot me an offer in the meantime. I can also meet you in Sacramento so you don't need to drive as far, but that will cost you a tad bit more.

    Steven (Valon5150) will be fabbing the flatbed. He's the same local guy who built my sliders.

    Thanks guys. I've been searching and searching but all tailgates are out of state. Craigslist even failed me.

    Thanks again especk and tostidos.

    Especk have you checked out the flat bed thread?

    Goose! You got my spacers, might as well have my tailgate too!

    Or if anyone else needs one let me know. It's in great shape and currently on the truck but I'm ready to part with it at anytime. It's MGM. Pics in my build page - standard tailgate haha
