    Does anyone know of diamond plate body stuff for sale for the 60 series, or has anyone fabriacated it themselves? If so post a link or a pic or something.... I'd like to put some diamond plate sutff on mine or at least on the bottom part of the tail
    gate where the rust has eaten away where the pressure is applied.

    IMO - I know that is a quick fix for rust, but I would not even consider buying or putting diamond plating on a truck. If you are though, I think the flat plating looks a lot better than the diamond plates...IMHO
