Yeah, the options for full tilt are to trim/remove rack, lift bed higher/towards rear, or make some sort of sliding mechanism to mount the bed hinges on so it would clear and be able to slide forward when down. I think the dump bed is usable with this amount of tilt and prob just going to go with that for now to keep it simple...

Slide bracket is an excellent idea for those few times to dump. I might mock up some channel metal with a slot to allow a rearward slide for the rear bracket 11/32 rod/bolt. Found these metal scraps in the barn. The channel on the right is a snug fit inside the brackets. Just something to tinker with in down time, thats worth the price regardless. Really liking the sturdy tailgate for pulling out brush.
