    So, shooting for the stars this weekend among other things, I really did a number on the tailgate..and my rear taillight. I told my friends we should have cut this tree down, right in the middle of the drive path. But noooo, lets leave it up they said. Sure enough....

    ....:facepalm:......

    Talked to the stealership. Said it would be "well over $1000 in parts alone", plus it would need to be painted. I also bent one of the bottom tailgate mounts for it......Gonna get some quotes on it this week. Needless to say I'm pissed. Majorly. I don't want to deal with insurance ($500 deduct), but i also don't have a spare $2000 (after parts, labor, taxes, everything) laying around. What a PITA.

    I'd try craiglist for parts and such. Seems cosmetic, keep your head up!!

    Sorry man

    This guy's sellin' his SWB tailgate for $150. Might wanna get in touch:

    Don't go to the dealership for parts for fuck's sake. That's what the internet's for.

    You could also go custom fab toob-gate for less than a grand, although probably not a bunch less...might save you a couple hundred...


    Also, what labor? Bolt the new shit in yourself.

    I hate to say it but their are a ton of stolen tailgates out there on Craigslist. I'm not saying you should buy from a known thief (that would make you a dick) but there are many out there. I'm sure you could do better than $2k on your own.

    Don't even have to go to craigslist. You can commonly find them on forums like these for a couple hundred...pay a body shop another couple hundred to match the paint and you're in business.

    Thanks man!!!! Sucks he's in OK but I dont care I'll pay for shipping. I just sent him an email about it. According to the stealership as its aptly named, the parts come seperate (sheet metal, plastics and latch assembly). It would all need to b assembled and then painted. Not saying I was planning on going that route just the quote I got. Hell I'd even take a mismatched tailgate and just get it painted!!! Just picked up a new taillight from another TW member (thanks Mellow!!!) so now I just have to deal with this issue.

    Bahhh so annoyed.

    I really appreciate jandrews helpin me out on that one...now I just need to have the seller email me back. I feel like a SWB tailgate untouched for $150 is a rare find, regardless of the shipping cost, which I'm sure will exceed the cost of the tailgate. I don't care lol.
