I have abused mine and it looks as good as new......
I own a landscape Co. and I routinely have hundreds of pounds of rock, plant materials, and myself (225 lbs.) standing on it.
So far so good.

No problems here on my 2010 even when I ride up on my 420lb quad with my 240lb self on it. Yes I know Toyota "fixed" the problem by 2010.

After installing the pop & lock on my 09 last year, I couldn't believe the lack of structural support on these tailgates. No wonder they are so light

The one on my '07 seems fine. I load my commerical walk behind mower into the bed with ramps (it weighs about 500-600lbs) and the tailgate holds up just fine.

i was wondering how much my tailgate could handle. just got the truck a month ago and we tailgate a lot at sporting events/concerts, and i have been cautious to step on it, and def didn't sit on it when another was sitting on it.

i have an '09, so by all accounts, it should be able to handle 600+ lbs. of weight, right?

.

I have the same 2009 as you and I am REAL careful with my tailgate and I haul very little.

A friend of mine bent his tailgate in the middle when he hopped down on his lowered tailgate (top edge) from about 2 feet. He weighs about 200 lbs.
