that plate is really flimsy back there in the pocket, doesn't take much for the welds to pop off (feels like sheetmetal tacked in there.
Ever take the door hinges off? There's a heavy metal plate in there that the bolts seem to suck in, maybe make a smaller version for the tailgate bolts, and use some thin head allen bolts to screw in there (vs the easily stippable impact phillips that Jeep used).
Finding those beveled inset phillips any bigger would be kind of a pain I would think, but doable too I suppose.
whoops, missed that was for a wag, I was referring to the truck beds.

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
