This is obviously a case of poor notice. I would have bought one if I had heard about this earlier. Only thing I can do now is hope I am on the referral list for the next time around. Count me still interested Send me a PM of future discounts.

Yeah, the GB is over. Maybe someone can get some interest from a few members and then PM me and we'll run another in a month or two.

Sorry this didn't happen better. I have been worried about folding my tailgate by walking out on it, or by one day loading up my motorcycle. I will look you up and buy one full price if I have to because I think its worth it.

If you bend your tailgate loading something mildly heavy you are going to need a new tailgate, pait job, AND you are going to want this so it doesn't happed again. SAVE YOURSELF $500 and just buy it before you bend the original. Jeez, I just sent him $550 for some skid plates, but that won't save my tail(gate).
Which skids did you get for that price?

Whoops! Yeah, I bet there are plenty of people that will jump on it, just need to get better visibility and maybe some pre-interest from a few before starting the next.

I bent mine on my '07 2 months after I bought it... seeing a taco'd tailgate that new hurt really bad, was time consuming to get fixed, and then I still needed to reinforce like you said. Better off having it as insurance than bending it and adding one later like happened to me!

Standard is raw aluminum which you can leave as is or paint or powdercoat (can be painted any color you like but you need a good primer over raw aluminum) or in raw steel which is stronger but a bit heavier. YOU will have to paint the steel or it will rust on you, remember to paint both sides of it! See the first post on this thread for weights. I will go with steel for the strength, but aluminum will be easier to flip up...

Keep the requests coming so Eric knows we want this Group Buy to come back to life! I count 3 of us so far...... by the way I have nothing in this except I want my tailgate to last, and I like Relentless products.

Review of Tail gate reinforcement

Ok so I got the steel tailgate as I thought the extra weight over the back would help add traction and i liked the idea of a thinner profile.

Shipping and communication:
Both were great with a good reply time to emails.

Product itself:
very good quality but also fairly simple. does what it said it does and that is that. I've put some big loads on the tail gate and I dont worry about it bending. I also tested it before it was installed and it was alot more sturdy than i expected. It fits very well and i did not have to adjust anything after it was installed. something to be aware of is that the outside of the tailgate is rounded so the edges of the plate will not sit flush.

Install:
If it is steel you will need to paint it or find another way to keep it from rusting. I used a car primer followed up by a flat black enamel and a spray bed liner for the top. I Also bought some door trim from pepboys and put it on the edge of the plate that touches the outside of the tailgate. I would suggest you do to to keep it from gouging the paint.

pretty straight forward. I have a '13 so I don't know if is any different. I opted to reuse the plastic cover on the inside of the tailgate to keep it looking stock.

first take off the top plastic piece on the top of the tail gate, unscrew the mounting screws then it just pulls off (takes some force.)

Then unscrew the bolts holding the inside plastic cover on. The plastic cover you just removed has tabs they will need to be removed, I used a cut off wheel on a Dremel and it was way easy. Also the top holes on the plastic cover will need to be drilled out I used a 1/2" bit and it worked well. if you opt to not reuse the plastic you will need to drill the mounting holes to 1/2" if you want the screws to sit flush.

Next is put on the Tail gate reinforcement plate followed by the plastic and screw her down and load her up.



Over all i am happy with the product and with Relentless fab.

I am not happy how my paint job is holding up but that is my issue.

Ill post pics of it installed with in the next few days. If you have questions let me know I think this would be one of the best first mods to do to a Taco.
