Looks awesome! Quick question though.

What is the pin mechanism in the upper right hand corner of the tailgate? Does the conversion not use the stock latching tailgate latch or what is that parts function?

the latch on the stock tailgate only closes on the drivers side, the hinge is what keeps the passenger side closed. without the side hinge, you need another latch to keep it sealed.

yes. it closes the passenger side door. the stock latch stays there so that it can still lock

After I get some sort of swing away spare tire carrier to get the spare off my tailgate, this is next on my list. Too cool. Thanks for the close-up pictures.
