most people cut up a 1st gen gate and "french" the FORD into their existing gate.
i am modifying the hinges and latches so i can just bolt the 1st gen gate to a newer truck. by just changing the hinges and latches on the bed, instead of cutting up 2 perfectly good gates.
i finished the hinges, and the gate fits on the truck but the latches will have to be custom fabbed to work. and since it got cold, i don't like to work outside
so now i've just been sanding and prepping the 1st gen gate for paint and repairs....its got a dime sized rust hole on it
