Tailgate

Been thinking about picking up a 5er tailgate to swap out for the camping seasons and since I have been asking a lot of questions I thought I would ask what some of the better ones are out there that you are using. I did a very quick search and the all aluminum Husky looked pretty nice.
I want the center handle and most likely will paint to match the truck. Do any have the option to relocate a stock camera in it?

I have the Husky and it does have the option to relocate the stock camera. Had it for over a year and had no problems.

I've got a steel Custom Flo tailgate, I like that it's steel. It also can be bought with a piece that closes up the notch so that your stuff in the box is protected if you have a cover for your truck bed.

A couple of downsides, the paint is powder coat (put on by heat), I was told that it had to be removed (sandblasted off) if you want to paint the tailgate to match the truck. It also chips a bit if handled roughly, but the surface under the chips doesn't rust.

Just looked at the picture of your rig, if it's black, no re-painting required!

I wonder if I can apply some powder coat myself to repair?

I got mine through Amazon.com

I never knew just how old I was until I got that step!

I have the bed extenders too, and my daughter says those are to keep me from falling out of the truck when I reach the next phase of old!

I actually planned my truck accessories around that step... searched and looked for a rolling cover that did not latch to the tailgate so I could have that step... my last Roll-N-Lock cover attached to the tailgate and could not be used with that step.. They since redesigned it and make 2 styles.. 1 for the step , and 1 without it!..

Yes, I just got the Roll-n-lock not too long ago. All they really did is modify the rear track so it works with the step.

Another reason I want to stay with the full gate. Its so nice to have this huge locker that you can throw stuff in, either at the campsite or while out exploring and know it's reasonably secure. (Although I've actually never had anything stolen)
