    I know the back support was rusty but I found out how bad today!! I saw when I got this truck(my 87 plow truck) and new I was gonna have to fix, but I was gonna wait till spring. HAHAHA! I never tried to open gate, didn't want to mess with it. well, I hit a bump and, well, I guess the right side of gate wasn't latched. it fell open on the right side and the left side stayed latched. bent the #$$@@#$ out of gate!! made it home though!! used 2 jacks to lift body back up so I could close gate and shoved 2x4's under back floor!! guess I'll have to fix soon!

    Did not know it was that bad Henry, hopefully the weather will break soon. Would you be interested in the whole truck? My cousin might get pissed if I have another none running truck in the driveway. Let me know what you think.
