Custom tailgate cover and front cover
2 Attachment(s)
My plastic jeep cover on my YJ was cracked and missing some parts so I fabricated one out of diamond plate and custom bent the ends to wrap the frame came out looking really nice also had some small cracks on the tailgate from over sized tire being back there for many years so I custom cut a sheet of diamond plate to cover tailgate took hours for key hole and around release handle but came out great.

You do nice work. The Jeep really looks sharp.

Thanks I was worried about cutting the diamond plate sheet used duct tape for a guide while cutting with my jig saw and a very fine tooth blade just went really slow and cuts came out very straight. was 1/2 the cost of buying pre done on line. hardest part was getting holes in the correct place for key cylinder and door handle as well as bolts and rubber bumpers. Used no adhesives just reinstalled original hardware back onto tailgate and holding in place just fine. Even mounted hinges on top of cover looks better in person.
