More About Tailgate Parts
The tailgate is probably the most used and abused part of a truck.
A tailgate serves multiple functions. It is primarily used to conveniently load cargo onto the back of a vehicle. In some truck models, it can be used as a step to access the bed or as an extension to increase carrying capacity. In remote locations and work sites, tailgates double as a worktable. It can also provide additional seating.
Faulty hinges and latches can cause the doors to get stuck or come apart. Hardware located inside the tailgate shell may become loose or worn out without you noticing. It’s important to regularly check and replace these parts as soon as they show any signs of damage. Replacing individual components as needed can help you save on costly repairs in the long run.
