There is no weight on the tailgate what so ever.
In fact the spreader is just barily touching what would be the top of it if it were in the up position.
LOL!! It looks great, I see where the last support on the box is located right over the rear where the tailgate closes. As long as it is bolted down good I see no problems in runing it like that- I don't think that the bottom of the spreader is designed to flex enough to put pressure on the tailgate.
Are you going to letter the truck at all? Or will you run it undercover for now?
Arc,its an 8 fter. In my other GMC,that had an 8 ft bed,if the rear bumper was off,the spreader fit all the way in with 2" to spare on front if that. if ithink of it il lget a measurement on it.Bradford made a 6 1/2 ft model too.It is quite a bit shorter.
