Sport Truck Custom Tailgate

This 2004 Chevy Colorado got a custom tailgate with a recessed license plate. In this Sport Truck Magazine tehc article you can follow along step by step and see exactly how we accomplished this cool modification.

This 2004 Chevy Colorado was in a minor accident and was needing repairs, so the owner thought why not have a little custom work done while we’re at it. Before the accident we installed lowering kit and custom transmission cross member. After the accident we repaired the damage to the cab and bed, but instead of just replacing the smashed tailgate we customized the replacement gate with a shaved handle and recessed license plate box in it. We also color matched and installed an Isuzu I5 grille color matched the door handles and mirrors and installed a smooth roll pan. The owner built a speaker enclosure that set behind the seat and had us paint it to match the rest of the truck. The custom tailgate was an impressive enough mod that our friends at Sport Truck Magazine had us write a Tech Article, showing step by step exactly how we accomplished this cool modification. . With all these custom changes this 2004 Chevy Colorado turned out to be one awesome mild custom truck.
