And with out realizing it you proved why barn doors are better lol
Tailgates are crap...
Nope, I love my tailgate. I was only holding it up because my friend wanted the motor to be seen in the pic.
A barn door would have been up against his Camaro, lol.
Barn doors are for hearses. You can't tailgate, without a tailgate. There was no more difficulty loading that engine than there would have been with a pick-up. Haters gonna hate, lol
And it's a royal PITA in a pickup with the tailgate too, and who tailgates, lol. Yep, hate ,hate, hate...
If I don't tailgate but I'm always killing it can I go with the barn doors?
Well if your loading a puny SB and you can extend the cherry picker a tailgate is fine, but it your loading a B.B. and need the boom collapsed the tailgate will limit where you place it. Barn doors no worries. Lol
I gotta vote 'tailgate'.
I had both, and even given the downsides of the tail gate would vote for a tail gate. Looks good, and it runs/drives which is a plus
It goes in plenty far enough to get the gate closed. If you want the engine in farther, you simply close the gate and then continue moving the hoist where you want it. I've owned both styles, I'll always go with tailgate if given the option.
In other news, I decluttered the roof. No more ladder racks or visor. Now I just need to find a factory luggage rack and a rear deflector.
Barn doors forever.. LOL..
Nice suburban. I always remember this car chase when I think of suburbans - check out the 1:40 mark.
I haven't seen that one before. Looks like the cop car hit the wall harder than the Burb.
