Default Re: tailgate

All stepside/flareside tailgates will fit your truck from the Splash model to present day step sides. I believe they stopped making them in 2004 though. If you have trouble finding one, I know a guy who can sell you one but the shipping to Canada may kill you. Also, go over the gates well, they tend to rust and rot on the underside...but I bet thats why you are replacing yours
