Before I had the tailgate built, I was over designing in my mind. Once the tailgate was on, things just got simpler. I'll weld the pins on here in a bit. Then it's time for a trial run with at least a partial load! I'm a happy camper, for sure!

Success!! Great design and simple to boot. Way easier than one of those rope pull latch arrangements. Thanks for the pics/video.

Kenny, That really is a sweet design. When I posted before I was thinking in my mind how you could design the latch, your design is far less complicated then anything I was coming up with. That really is so simple yet effective. That is going to be a handy cart around the place. Thanks for the video too.

I was thinking much more complicated myself, until I had the tailgate up there! This worked out to be very simple and easy to do. I did trim to ends as I said I would, so it will unlatch sooner. I think I could add chains to the tailgate and be able to spread like a big truck does. And this is my first video. Kudos to Steve for helping me figure it all out.

Great job Kenny. Soon as I get this truck load of widgets unloaded, counted and stacked in descending order I might get to work on my trailer. Great job.

I was showing your video to the wife and even she enjoyed it. I've got to get back to just fixing mine.

Bill, it's been a tough road to get to where it is now! But, it will haul most anything. Definitely over built, but the winch is the only thing I worry about with it. Who knows, I might find a Hyd. Cylinder to fit! Then it would be awesome! Took a while, but the outcome was well worth it. Just waiting for paint to dry so I can put it back together. Got a couple decals that will work great on it, too!

I agree it was well worth the effort. I'm looking forward to the final pictures with the paint and decal's. I still think you could make some $$$ selling these.

Bill, that's not a bad idea if I had more materials. And shipping these would not be easy, it's pretty heavy. I hope to have it all prettied up in a couple days. Takes a bit for the white to dry, I'm using epoxy appliance paint for it!

Kenny, that's perfection.

Does your neighbor know you stole the dirt from their flower garden?
