    A bit of blowout but after the first place it didn't blow out at all!

    The last picture shows how the leaves get between the tarp and tailgate and creates blowout when the truck is empty, gotta find a solution to it but it shouldn't be too difficult.

    why not just put the tarp in the bed and shut it in?

    I'll try that out too, I had it that way at one point but couldn't get the tailgate pins in, I'm sure there's a way.

    Pressedun, Could you possibly build out the section where the tarp hangs over your tailgate? It looks like you could replace your vertical 2x4's at the end, add another piece of plywood to box it out and maybe your exit chute for the loader could be run through it.

    I don't remember who, but another member has a setup similar to yours. He has a solid piece of wood to cover the rear and it has a hinge so it swings open when he dumps.

    Good luck & nice setup!

    Ended up doing what McGinn suggested and shut the tarp in with the tailgate, problem solved!
