    That's sweet, I'll be definitively subscribing to this thread. If it doesn't sell in a couple of months I might be able to take it off your hands.

    What's the width of the upper mounting holes, and also the distance of the pins up and down?

    Thanks, I'll measure mine up and see if it's close, I can have it partially modified if need be.

    The L brackets on the top can easily be modified to fit the height of any application.

    That is sweet. I've never seen a full replacement gate like that. Free bump for ya.

    That's what I'm thinking. There is a big section of sheet metal at the top, and it can be cut off. From what I've seen, most of the units are really all the same with different height/width modifications.

    My under-tailgate works pretty good, but would like to try a replacement tailgate. The only real pit-fall I see is the lack of using my bed for other material in the winter. Right now I can drop my tail-gate over my spreader.

    If you take the spinner off, you could still open this like any other tailgate, as long as there is clearance for the hydro lines. When unloading access salt at the end of the event you could just release the locking pins and dump the salt out.
