Converted my tailgate to quick remove

Practiced on my old tailgate first. Was pretty easy to do.

Great idea. Will be trying this also. When the tailgate is up, can you see any of the notch on the bottom of the gate(pivot point)? I'm thinking to maybe have the notch at about 7 o'clock instead of on the bottom(6 o'clock)...make sense? Would be hidden by the end of the bed floor.

I don't think it's visible but clocking it back slightly might be a good idea. You'd just have to open it 1/3 of the way and pull, instead of 1/2 way.
