    Does or has anyone purchased a Alumnium Tail gate for a 1 ton dump truck? I know all trucks are differents and the beds are different as well, but has anyone purchased one of these that could give me a ball park price. My bed is standard 8 ft bed, and the tail gate only goes up to the base of the rear gusets. My steelbody tail gate is just really really beat up, and im sick of lifting the weight on it day after day. Any info would be great. Thanks

    What kind of bed is on it? I would try the manufacturer. If not call Thiele Industries in Windber or Jand J bodies in Somerset. They'll be able to fabricate on e for you I'm sure. My uncle has an aluminum gate on his Thiele body which is steel. It's a good idea.
