Tail Gate Net?
I was wondering if anyone had a picture of a 74 repu or maybe even a courior with the tail gate delete/Net mod? My tailgate is in poor shape and the latches keep coming unlocked and dropping the gate, it's really annoying lol.
i deleted the tailgate and used a net on my old 71 chevy and actually noticed a little better acceleration on the highway from reduced drag (assuming) and i saw an added 3 mpg average. on a truck that got 12 mpg usually it was a pretty big deal. i can only assume it would do the same gains if not better on the little repu.
but anywho...if anyone happens to have a pic please post it. if i come across the spare cash i may just go buy one and to it next weekend. if all else fails i can always put the tailgate back on...
