    I have a '03 Dodge Ram, and I am looking for a tailgate. My truck is black, but beggers cant be choosers. I can get any color repainted. I believe '03 to new will fit, scratches no big deal but no dents. I got one with dents I dont want.

    I bought an aftermarket tailgate for an older F250 from a truck & trailer store. Basically it had a tubing frame & mesh overlay. The latching mechanism had two 90* handles on each side that were spring loaded to latch it in. Worked pretty good.

    No the jack on my dump trailer sits just a bit too high. When I open my gate to get out my leaf gear, if I got busy vacing leaves, and one of my guys got in the truck to pull forward, and voila! I need a new gate.

    Just courious...... In the real world I work for Amtrak's, Auto Train, which comes in to Sanford, Florida everyday..... You wouldn't happen to have one, or know someone down their that has one laying around?

    I have a buddy who deals with mostly ford parts, in fact I will be up there on Saturday, the last time I was up there he had 2 "03 tailgates. I will check them out while I'm up there and Im you guys. I know one was silver I think the other one was blue but it may have been black. they were sitting in the next to the door way in a dark room.

    I have a perfect bumper,tail gate, and turn signals from a white 2004 Ram 1500. I turned the truck into a dovetail; but was saving these parts incase i decided to put another bed on. How much would you go for this stuff?
