    I'm thinking about modifying my trailer gate cutting it down the middle and making it two fold down ramps. I think it will make the gate stronger and actually easier for my guys. Also will add a latch in the middle so it can fold down as one. Just trying to be easier and more efficient.

    Thoughts? info? experience? thanks

    i'm surprised you haven't done this before, it makes it a lot easier.

    Split gate is much easier. I have the optional latch too.
    Sometimes you need a split gate and when you don't jist drop the latch. I only drop one side for my z-spray and walkerS...

    i second that, I've done this to a few trailers. if i can recomend anything though. is make sure the latchs are in good shape. because they will vibrate and bounce a bit more. ive snapped pins that way. after some modifications and bigger pins, havent had any problems since.
