4 link rear, complete backhalf, and yes a working tailgate.

I really wanted to keep a tailgate as it makes a good seat, bench, table, etc.
it also 12" longer behind the wheels than I had it originally. And no more dove tail. So if anyone wants that 12" shorter tailgate let me know. Otherwise I'm going to hang it in the shop when I get it done.
There's a simple inside hoop too. All 1.75 .120 dom

So I actually did something today. I painted the cage and took a few measurements. It cycles right at 22" of rear wheel travel.

Cut up some bedsides to fit. It was a mint shortbed. The first pic shows how much I had to drop the rear down. The second pic shows it all straight. I had to drop the tailgate down about 2".
