    To anyone that has a leaf box on a dump trailer and one with a swing away back gate on their leaf box did you just use the plywood or did you reinforce the plywood of the swing gate with 2x4's or something?

    I would think that the plywood should be reinforced or it will warp after awhile or would that make the gate to heavy to swing away while dumping?

    Still some reinforcement, although I plan to extend the bottom of my box gate a little inside my swingaway trailer gate for more reinforcment. I will be splitting my box door like a lot do anyway.
