FTE Pre61 - F250 Tailgate - Measurements

Subject: FTE Pre61 - F250 Tailgate - Measurements

Abe wrote:"F-250 owners:
What are the measurements of an F-250 tailgate? I rescued a tailgate in
decent shape, knowing that it was too big for my F-100, and I want to
know if it is indeed for an F-250.
Thanks, Abe (hate to see good sheet metal rust away)"

Grover's tailgate is 54 3/4" wide and about 20 3/4" deep. By the way, I
FINALLY got a cahnce when it was daylight to look not only at the
tailgate, but the air deflectors. My '54 is about as stock as they get
(Okay, I put an alternator on it!) and the air deflectors have two rods
running diagonally across the front of the radiator to the mounting
flanges on each side. I am 99% certain all the sheet metal is original
because the original owner did his own repairs with a welder and a ball
peen hammer!
