"Double Door" Tailgate For Pickups
This new two-piece "double door" tailgate for pickups opens from both sides, making it easy to load items onto the bed.
  The DoubleGate tailgate is designed to replace the original factory tailgate and is made from a fiberglass-like material formed to fit over a zinc-plated steel frame. The doors can be opened or closed with one hand. Mounting the hinges requires drilling four holes on each side of the pickup bed. The doors are lockable.
  "It comes with a factory white, UV stable finish but can be painted to match any factory color. Black composite bed caps protect the upper edge of the tailgate," says Chuck Williams, Blackhawk Mfg., Bloomington, Calif. "If the customer doesn't want to have the small handle on the outside, they can install a knob on the inside but it won't be lockable.
  "We also offer two models for fifth wheel RV users. One is a slotted flow-through design, while the other is solid. Both feature a large drop-down access area in the middle of the doors."
  All three double door models sell for $999 apiece plus S&H.
  The company also offers a metal step that's designed to fit into a 2-in. receiver hitch and make it easier to climb into the pickup bed. Measures 14 in. long and 4 in. wide and has grip tread on both sides. It can be adjusted to four different positions depending on the type of pickup you have. Sells for $98 plus S&H.    Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Blackhawk Mfg. Inc., 3122 S.
