Tailgate cover / panel / plate (after removing 5th wheel assembly)

Maybe I'm doing a search for the wrong name of it... but I'm taking off the 5th wheel assembly and don't want to have holes there.

I'd like to buy some sort of cover that I can paint to match... I've looked at both of these but the

Kinda like this... but just the center piece I guess... but not steel and without the vents....

Do some searching, I know there's at least one thread about doing this . . .

I hate telling people to "go search" and always try to do the search and post a link for them, but I can't find it using my iPhone.

Only thing I have seen is a diamond plate tailgate cover that covers the whole tailgate, but you'd have to powder coat it the color you wanted.

Send this to Andrew aka Tigertrack1600m here on the forum. See if he can make you what you want. He's a great guy and does fantastic work.

Took me a minute to figure out what you were doing - 5th wheel is normally found on an 18 wheeler to hook up the trailer ...

A body shop should be able to cut out the plate you need and powder coat it to match your color.
