I just put the foam padding on the inside of my tailgate to save my knees when climbing on the tailgate to get into the cab.
It was only $10 from Harbor Freight, and I have 3 full sheets left over. Good for backup in case it rips. Which I'm sure it will eventually.
I could of used 3M Velcro strips. But I figured this was more secure with the screws. A little much you think. I always over do it. Dam, did you see what they charge for this by some manufacturers.

Good idea! I hope it’s closed cell foam so as not to hold moisture. Istill wouldn’t let it get wet.

I probably would have used some two sided tape.

We might start calling you captain overkill.

I was gonna use the double sided tape or the 3m Heavy Duty Velcro strips, but sometimes it gets moist in there and that Shyte will fall off I'm sure.

Cleaned the throttle body, took the goblblin for a little spin around apartment complex and let my bulldog pup hang out the window while we cruised. Old man chihuahua daschund just enjoyed the ride.

Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Sometimes it could be...

The Bronco group left me out when they posted pics on their Facebook group.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!

But you don’t own a Bronco... your wife does.

The way some Facebook people are... they might have even left out the 4 door Bronco.
