    Alright TW'ers, the tailgate that i have now is bent and dented to all get out. im looking at purchasing one of the aftermarket ones that just come primered, like the ones off of JCWhitney.com and AutoPartsWarehouse.com, and have a local shop color match it. What i dont know is if they actually fit well, since they arent made by toyota, and if they are any stronger or weaker, etc. Input would be greatly appreciated!

    I am a big fan of original parts, especially if you plan on keeping the truck long term. Maybe a online Toyota Parts outlet may be able to get you a better price then your local dealer, thus making it easier to just get the factory part. :confused:
