    I have a 450 flat bed dump that a couple of years ago I made tall wood sides for it that if you pull two pins fold in half so my mini could load the truck. My back gates were hinged like barn doors and they worked well until one of the guys didnt have them locked in place and hit a pole while backing. any ways I just went with two stake style but have gotten sick of having to take them out and put them back lal of the time. Im looking for seggestions on how to make a barn door style rear gate with out the need for wood to go in the stake pocketsin the middle Id like a metal latch system but i know when we fill it full the sides do bow out a bit.
