It doesn't lay down that's one reason for the V cut so I can still get my tire out. But to answer future questions it is basically being used as a bedside support without some kind of support the bed sides are not as strong. Plus I haven't seen anyone do a tailgate this way and I like to be different.

Awesome.
only thing I would have like'd to seen, Is have it all boxed in rather than just the edge.
Either way, It looks good! I like it.

You are right I still need to box the tailgate and the halfdoors in will hopefully be completely finished this week.
