Anyone out there fixed tailgate before? I recently broke one of the latches that locks on mine. It seems the only way to get to the internal components is to unweld the thing...then what get another from a scrap tard and do the same for the internal parts? Seems like it would work...anyone out there done this or have other ideas or places to get the parts?

Sounds like a lot of work. Maybe just get a whole gate from the junk yard? Shouldn't be too hard to find, as long as you live somewhere that rust isn't too much of a problem.

There pretty easy to work on. Just on bolt the latch. undo the pull rod from the center handle and pull it out. EASY
