Brian, What vehicle is your fuel filler door from?

Doubledoyle, no help here, I have taps welded on the inside with a strap.

We have a close up of the chains at the following link:
http://www.mar-k.com/Catalog/itemDet...?ItemID=120119
If you have never been to the site before, you may have to put in your year, make and model first, and then hit the link again.
It is not on the truck, but hopefully that helps.

Chuck,
The fuel door came from a late 80's olds cutlass. I just kept cutting until it fit the fender.lol

doubledoyle,
That's the only shot I have of the chains.

MAK-Ktech,
I think my bed is one of yours, it came from "Early Ford" in Springfield OH.

I didn't use any chains on my new tailgate. It was a pretty easy fix and not much cost at all. I was able to use hitch pins and latches from Tractor Supply.
