What do you mean by custom? Like a metal mesh one? Or a skin with no handle? Or just a shaved handle? Elaborate a little more.

I always thought it'd be cool to have something stamped into the tailgate.

Exactly. That'd look killer especially with a shaved handle.

i actually would like to see some pics of custom gates as well. i was thinking mesh gate with with square tubing. i've seen a few.

i have decided i'm either roll panning my truck and blending it all in or doing custom headache rack like Tre and Shane with a matching tailgate that has a gas can and tire carrier..

That 3rd gen with the 2nd gen logo tail looks hot. I like it. Has the truck been painted yet? I'd love to see it done.
