|vortectim||Can I see a picture of this on your truck? It looks nice, just not sure how it would work.|

Go to a marine store and buy latches they use on boats.Hatch Fastener Anti-Rattle 3-3/4" Chrome by Seachoice | Marine Products Pro Shop The ones I used were the same type but were made by Perko. They won't be hidden but will be on the inside corners.

Hidden tailgate latch
Hey guys, it's been a while since I've checked in. I just wanted to see if any of y'all have used a hidden tailgate latch kit in your truck. I'm trying to decide which one to use. Need some help. Thanks.

I want a 4x4 that sits slightly lower than these, so I'm going to try the later chassis, such as a 2000 or newer. We'll see how it goes.

|dsraven||for 2 wheel drive the tread width is 60.75 front, 61.02 rear. this is from the assembly manual. tread width appears to be the centre line of the tread where it contacts the road surface. don't know if that does you any good or not, but hopefully you get something figured out.|

Also a member/contributor to this thread 57halfton(Gene) has built (converted) one before and may be able to give you some tips on what to use, etc. Nolan

I am looking to convert one to 4x4 and was looking for dimensions of hub to hub to get a more accurate dimension.
Thanks again Bill

Bill, the front tread width is 60 1/2" center to center, the rear is 61" center to center. Here is a link to the original specifications;
