BUILD YOUR TAILGATE: 92 Things To Own Before Kickoff #91

This is an ongoing series where we’re going to help you build a tailgate from the ground up. We’ve got 92 things for 92 days and we’re going to try to keep this thing reasonable as far as costs go.

The patented steel frame design provides a sturdy foundation and is protected with a powder-coated, weather-resistant finish.
