My 07 TRD Sport is only 5 months old and my tailgate is still spotless. I brought my truck in to a dealership for a tire re-balancing and happened to mention the Tailgate TSB to the service write up assist. manager.
She looked it up on the TSB and informed me that there indeed was a Tailgate TSB and without me mentioning anything, ORDERED the new stiffer Tailgate for me.
She said she can do all Tailgate TSBs for anyone who qualify. No need to show the BENT TAILGATE or anything.
