Default Need new tailgate

i have an 02 ford ranger and i am looking to replace the tailgate due to having a big dent in the middle of it. the question i have is my truck is not a step side bed truck, so do i need to buy a flareside or a styleside one instead? and also, i'm not sure where the best place to buy one would be?

You just need a regular tailgate. Not for a step or flare. You could prob get one at a junk yard it might need a little TLC but its the best bet for your buck IMO. Check C list everyday i see them on there occasionally too. If it still functions and is just a cosmetic thing i would keep searching until you find one cheap.

They don't really sell regular tailgates anywhere, you either have a style or flareside..

A regular is a styleside

----------

There are only 2 different style tailgates. One is whats on my truck and the other is a shorter one that goes on the stepsides. From what i understand your bed looks like mine correct?

Yea, you need a styleside tailgate.

As Drew said, search Craigslist. I've seen them all the time. Try junkyards, but that's hit and miss. If you're that desperate, try LMC, but you'll pay for really poor quality, so i'd stick with OEM stuff.
