I hate that the projects (mods) on this thing is never ending....and that Ford hasn't figured out to put a new Ranger on the market.

Hate the tailgate latch. The angled dead bolt is not a smooth mechanism at all, and I always have to slam my tailgate to close it. But sometimes I slam it and the dead bolt doesn't even move so it just bounces off and then I have to try again. I've learned now that I can pull the handle open and close the tailgate, but only the right side dead bolt will be in place. Then I can SHOVE the left side until I hear the click of the left side dead bolt.

Why couldn't it be like a door latch?

I'll have to pull it apart one day and see what's what. I don't remember anything being bent last time I had the cover off but I'm sure it could use some grease lol
