    I wouldn't associate myself with those people any longer if I were you.

    Glad you got it back though.

    Is there a hose clamp mod for the first gens??? I bought the clamps but then realized the 1st gens are different than the 2nd gens. The thread I was reading only pertained to 2nd gens.

    I have 2 bolts on the bottom left and right. It's also held on by the cable that's also bolted on.

    Any suggestions on how to make this even more UNstealable???

    I looked twice and don't see any way to hose clamp my first gen tailgate. I also can't just pull it off like in that "why you should do this hose clamp mod" video, so I suspect it's different for second gen.

    I went with a pop and lock...now to just remember to keep it locked...

    The tailgate just bolts in. The only way to prevent it from happening would be to get those fancy bolts with different head designs.
