Six years ago I made a tailgate ladder for my truck. Now that I'm going to try and sell that truck I took it off the tailgate. I did that last fall and I sandblasted the parts and painted it. The pieces have been hanging in the shop waiting for Winter to be gone. Yesterday I finished installing it on the truck I am driving now.
Like I said in the original post on the tailgate ladder, I'm getting too old to jump up on the tailgate to get into the box of the truck!
While this picture looks like Winter is gone, we still have snow on the ground. There are patches of bare ground, but the shady places still have snow.
