Question Super Duty Tailgate?

Does any one know if a 2010 Super Duty Tailgate will fit on a 2005 Super Duty? They look almost exactly the same shape except the "Super Duty" across the bottom. I heard some where that maybe you have to switch the latch out or something but cant remember.

Here is the tailgate:

The ball mounts that the tailgate goes into at the bottom might be different size. As a the rangers are different. I sold a guy a 93 tailgate for his '06 and they were bigger.

Count on it not being a direct fit. Ford does some stupid things within a few years. The 80-86 fullsize Fords have two different styleside tailgates, yet they're identical on the outside. 1980-1982? have one tailgate, and 1983?-1986 have a different tailgate. The difference is in the latches and the metal support arms vs. cables for the later tailgate.

Jason, how in the world did that guy plan on a 93 tailgate working? The beds on the 98+ have to be wider/taller than the 97 back if i'm not mistaken?

I dont know, we held it up there and it fit like it was suppose to, other than the ball things.

I had no idea that they had even changed the bed at all...?

idk...?

he must have had an 05, it looks like 93-05 fit. He might have even got the wrong ball mounts, the guy bought his truck new with out tailgate...?

He said he got them from the junk yard, they just might have been from an 06-10 maybe..?

But yeah anyhow, check those on the superduty. they might have a similar issue
