i know what you're talking about... it's common with lots of roll pans and our truck's tail gates.... most people just say oh well and ignore the flatness of the roll pan compared to the curve of the tailgate

A splash has the same tailgate as any other stepside Ranger.
Pictures would definately help!

Well, bend er up! I assume it's not already color matched so you can patch up an imperfections in the bending process. If you don't wanna bend/alter it, then you're just gonna have to live with it.

All rangers have a curve in the tailgate, a rollpan from grant customs has a curve in it to match the tailgate. I hear grants pans are the best.
