For those of you that want to cover the tailgate holes that catch so much junk , here is my solution. This is not gonna add any strength to the tailgate , only cover the pockets. I went to an air conditioning duct work shop and got this made for $45 . It is 26 gauge . I will coat it tomorrow with rattle can bed liner , and install with marine grade ss rivits .

Just an update...The rattle can bed liner is not sticking real good. Talked to a pro , and he said you really need to scuff up the metal. On truck beds he uses a wire cup brush in a grinder or a drill. he said scratch the heck out of the metal, really scar it ,, and then the spray on stuff will stick like nobodies business.

After scuffing wipe down with acetone or paint thinner.

That thin amount of dust will keep it from sticking.

I'm finally going to get the ball rolling on this modification cant stand all the dirt that stays in the holes when you clean your bed out. You should sell these they would probably sell like hot cakes
