4 x 4 build

Hi Bryan
Definately a nice custom job on the tail gate handle and a perfect match to the door handles. I ​​​​​​​noticed about half way during your build you made a new dash’s. Real nice job especially the surrounds. Thought I would share a standard Aussie one and a mates customised one.

Custom job


Standard instruments

The tailgate handle is an awesome feature - but I can't recall why you're doing it.

Did you want that "shaved" look but still have access to drop the gate mechanically?

Possibly adding a locking mechanism to the exterior of the tailgate might have been an easier venture - but then we wouldn't have ended up with this awesome update

Yeah, did it all for the update
I did it mostly for the security. I thought about just adding a lock cylinder to the exterior, but then decided to go full custom. If I were to do it over again, I would have just gone with the lock cylinder to be honest.
