    Anyone ever done this? Accidently left the tailgate down and went to turn and crushed it on the jack. Bent the whole thing as you can see in the second better picture. Lol it really sucks and costs about 450 bucks for a new tailgate.

    Worse is when you are hauling a gooseneck trailer and forget to put the tailgate DOWN and then try to drive off!

    check out car-part.com for a tailgate. I've ordered numerous parts from there. I needed a turn signal/ hazard light switch for my truck. $225.00 brand new. I got it from a bone yard somewhere off that site for $10.00. I would really check out car-part.com for what ever part you need just my .02
