Thanks for the tip. Great idea. I will keep that in mind. It is a SOB to get up. Loosing two supports would drop it about 35 pounds or maybe more. Thanks again. TimOriginally posted by cantoo
Tim, for the next one instead of adding the extra supports for the jeep I would just put a leg on the middle of the gate instead. It will lighten up the gate for everyday use.
I use my trailer for my Ford tractor and just throw a block of wood under the gate and it doesn't bend at all. Makes for a much lighter gate.
Could you show me a picture of a torsion spring setup? TimOriginally posted by patriottruck
Nice job. Next time you might want to try torsion springs between the bed and gate. Similar to a liftgate setup. Works well for us. Looks good though.
