Well, I know how to do it, but I dont have it all done myself. I do have the tailgate shaved and thats easy, get a kit from Sir Michels. As for door handles, There is a salinoid on the inside of the door that pulls the linkage inside which is controled by a car alarm type remote, I have this instaled on my tailgate and it is sweet! The gas cap, well, you have to relocate it into the inside of the bed wall, pain in the ***s if you ask me. but then agian so are shaved handles. If you do want shaved handles, check out a company named autoloc. you can find their add in any sport truck or truckin mag. good luck, let me know your plans!

Well, the door handle kit and poppers you can order from Sir Michaels... for I believe a total of 60 and it comes with a little key fob thinggy that when you push the button the door pops open ..

The gas cap I have no clue... but then again have no clue why anyone would do that..

and yes the tailgate handle just gets put on the inside..

I dont know how framiliar you are with Sport Truck Mag, but like 6 moths back, they had a sic yellow S10 that had the Gas cap shaved and relocated, I will try and give you the month and a pic. It seems like an easy mod to do, except for repainting your bed.

Well you could just mount it inside your bed.. but I don't really see that as something as I will be doing any time soon....

what would be cool is to mount your gas filler in behind your driver side tailight. have a some kind of a hinge mechanizm on your tailight so it swings out. and your gas filler hides inside.

its a lot better than putting it inside the bed, coz you might want to have carpet in there. and i dont think you want to spill gasoline in your carpet.

and also you might want to have a push button for your door opener. a good place to hide it is to mount it in the cab side of the gap in between the cab and box. ive seen it done and it looks trick.

I saw one at a truck show that was behind the tail light he used two of the rear hatch pistons. Like the ones that hold up the rear glass on the S Blazers He had a button to unlock it and when it opened it stuck out like 18" enough to get the gas hose in there It was kinda trick looking.

there is a company that makes a euro style taillight that is hinged so it swings open, but you have to run the filler neck to the taillight. i plan do do this next winter when i shave everything.

i can't remember where i saw it, i think it was from apc. when i wanted to do it i was gonna call and ask them if they made it. i'm really not sure who makes it, but i am very sure that there is one out there

the problem with mounting the filler hole behind the tail light is having a stock gas tank in the stock placement and having a 5 foot filler neck. maybe if you relocated the tank jus inside the tailgate, but i wouldnt run a 5 foot filler neck
