be interested to see it in the flesh, we've been telling him if it's right there's a market for them for several years

You wouldn't want to hand stuff off it probably as the hinges won't be as strong but not everyone does hang stuff on the door

Might have to get lesser powerful struts as well. The ones on mine are pretty strong & i could probably use the tailgate as somekind of medieval firing device if need be :lol:
