    Well after a great day of atv riding I was finishing up and started to load my 640 lbs atv into my 2010 tacoma... well the ramps slid out and I need a new tailgate... where should I look ? I'm in North Central WV and I know how hard and $$$ it is to get a Tacoma tailgate. Any one parting out a White Taco ???

    You don't really care, do you.
    Cruise your local shopping center parking lot long enough and you'll find free ones.

    Don't know if you care, but be selective on Craigslist, a lot of the gates you see on there are clearly stolen. So you are just taking from someone else more than likely. You never know for sure, but just make sure they seem honest.

    Yeah, that is as close as you get to a legal raping. I would search a junkyard or online parts store.

    Or you could be a a badass and make a custom tailgate with built in ATV ramps! Otherwise the junkyard is your best bet for a legal transaction.
