Tailgate ?

I am not sure why this is the way it is. I bought the truck and then noticed this when I went to sit on the tailgate. It doesn't close flush unless I slam it shut and it is not at a 90degree (parallel to surface). Cables? Any other ideas?

Thanks.

I know my 09 sits at 90 degrees. Maybe your cables are stretched or the wrong ones. How do the hinges look? Have you cleaned and lubed the latches to see if that helps with the closing problem.

I'd say the cables are stretched. OEM toyota ones are kinda expensive..try camelback toyota, he's a vendor on here.
