I surely cant be the only person who think a lighter aluminum tail gate would be good??

I have been searching for a couple of days now. and on here.

Has or does any one, have or know, if any one makes an aluminum dump truck tail gate?

My local fabricator floored me with a 2000$$ price...um no thanks

hope this is the right section/forum

I was going to buy a 550 with a rugby dump. It had an aluminum tailgate. The guy couldnt stop talking about how awesome it was

Rugby looks nice! Ill give them a call but it looks like they make whole bodies.

So i guess there is a possibility. maybe i need a new fabricator.

Thanks for the info

If the dimensions are standard I'm sure they would be happy to take your money. Or find a hungrier fab guy :).

Get one from the bed manufacturer? I think most companies have either all aluminum beds or even just an aluminum tailgate.
