I pulled the factory tail gate in preperation for the PSC trail gate install.
I couldn't help but hold the brackets in place to see what I am working with.
The link brackets fit perfectly height-wise in the blank space of the corner armor where the factory tailgate hinges were. There is maybe a 1/4" void at the upper hinge, but the bottom could not fit better.
The brackets are a hair too long, so they will get trimmed.
I think the backing plate and roll cage tie-in for the upper bracket will be pretty easy. There is much less visibility on the backside of the lower bracket, so it will take a little more work.
