    That is pretty cool. Folds out of the way to save space. But I always have crap on the workbench so it would rarely be put away......

    I would also add a smooth work surface to actually work on. That metal is not gonna be very useful when actually working on stuff.

    That is awsome. I have an old tailgate from I truck I used to own and never found what I wanted to do with it! I always thought table but now I think that would be great.
    I'll need to find some good pieces to use at the pivot some new lock pieces and straps for an 1979 f-150!

    That would be perfect in a garage. Just don't try it with a Toyota tailgate.

    there is your test if you have had too many and are suffering from beer goggles. If your tailgate seat does not withstand your latest conquest, kick her out!

    it would be sweet for the whole day it before it got tuned into a "storage bench" after about a week in my garage no one would be able to recognize it as a tail gate.
