    Thanks! I wonder if you can give me the dimension between the rails/tubes. In other words, I want to see what the dimension is at its narrowest point, the point that would define how wide a box could fit inside the tailgate.

    First, I really appreciate your help, and I'm not doing a very good job of describing what I'm looking for. I'll attach one of your previous pics with annotations that will hopefully make it more clear.

    Hope that clarifies, and thank you again for your help.

    I couldn’t wait for a tailgate that was functional, so I built my own. I still have to add the 4.5 gallon Fuelpax mount and the tray for the coolers. Bags will hang on the outside. It swings out to the right side and uses a slam latch.

    Heartland Honda in Springdale, AR has the best looking one I've seen. It is made by a local to them shop. But I can't find a pic now.

    The latch is a 2 stage slam latch. I think it was from Eberhardt

    Very nice.
    I think this is the best I seen yet.
    More space and looks very sturdy.
    Good job.

    It looks like it doesn’t fit the roll bar angle. Maybe it’s the angle of the photo.

    I noticed you put 32” tires on your talon. I couldn’t decide between 30 and 32. It looked to me that 32’s would rub the rear of the front fender when you would turn, so I went with 30’s. Do yours rub? Are the wheels the same 5+2 offset?
