Corners without tailgate hinge cutouts

I've seen a few running around, but I'm not sure if they are full custom, or if they are an option. I'm looking at doing a drop down tailgate and would like to cover the stock hinge and tail-light location. I don't mind doing some fab work, and I think that PSC or AEV corners with cutting out the raised portion and welding in some patches may be the best bet. I really don't want to get something that doesn't follow the lines of the rear corner and leave a huge gap at the corners.

Yup, as stated, River Raider will not cut that section out if you ask when ordering. If you're set on a different manufacturer, you could just easily weld in plates to cover it up. It is approximately 2"x3" plates. See you're location is Ft. Hood. I have the River Raider corners with the cut outs but if you'd like to see how they fit up, let me know.

While my Jeep, and family are still on Ft. Hood, I currently am not. I'll have to hit you up later in the year to see how they fit.
