Dave Schwartz, I've come to rely on and love having my back up camera.
That's the part that I don't want to give up if I switch out the tailgate.

Purchase a manual slider and never used it. It must be the brand of truck😂😂😂

Also, I may be using a notched/louvered tailgate. I haven't decided on that one yet.
I don't know what hitch he was using but it was a Keystone Cougar 5er. There were enough four letter fly that I didn't want to get to close or ask any questions. LOL

I have the Reese Revolution on my Rockwood for 3 years now, with a 5.5 foot bed. I had the slider for two years, never used it and went to regular legs on my Reese 5W Hitch and I have now issues. Can turn 90 degrees. The cab and trailer gets to within 4 inches at its worst.

Will be looking for a cutout tailgate for my F250 for the same reasons. Eithrr that or do without completely.
