Is the panel plastic (like a liner) or metal? I took the handle (and bracket) off last night and want to put a flat panel back on, but noticed a lot of access holes on the inside of the tailgate. Not sure if the non-step models have those.
Actually, spouse wants to remove the step too because things keep getting stuck in in (i.e. gravel) and it looks doable. Was thinking of just buying a cap from a regular tailgate to fit over it after the step is removed.
Had a posting running on craigslist asking if anyone wanted to do a straight across trade for a regular white non-step tailgate. No takers here in the SF Bay area.
