As soon as the old lady gets back I'll go out and measure my tail gate if no one else has by then.

I did a quick measurement of my tail gate and on the outside its 45 3/4". This was just a quick rough measurement.

I have too say that the bed looks much better with the tailgate.

Why Not??? I did. You did the right thing, a step side tailgate is only 8" narrower.

it was gonna be tied into the front receiver, but i'm going to be putting the receiver else where.. so i gotta weld up the hole i cut in it.
