Attenion Tiregate Owners

i know there are a few guys here wih tiregates, but mostly the VT series, are the any prerunner style guys?

i need some measurements, i was going to buy one, but its $1,100 here before tax (about $1,300 after tax) so eff that,im having one made, but i would like some measurements. im pretty sure both styles mount the same, so weather you have the HT, VT or PR series you can help me here, for the mounting, what size tube did they use, and how thick is it? i know it mounts the same way the stock tailgate does and i basically want to make it identical.

if there are any PR guys here, can you also tell me the following;

i want to make it as close to their specs as possible, there are a fe things i may change but hopefully someone can help me out, i dont want to make th angle too steep or too flat. thanks to everyone, also if you have any picturs that you may think will help me wheather it be when you were mounting it of just funny little spots, feel free to post them!
thaks all

You might try emailing them. I had a question about my steppie, and they gave me a lot of info on alternate items since they don't carry one for a steppie.

Try Bob. [email protected]. Let him know what you want, and I'll bet he can hook you up with the measurements you are looking for.
