    Happened to my buddy on his 05. We put a chopper in the back and the tail gate couldn't take it. He just dealt with it and still has the crease in his tailgate.

    Motorcycles, dirt bikes...heavy weight in the center of the tailgate causes it to bend or 'taco' :).

    Heavy weight on the outer edges such as a quad/4 wheeler does not cause a problem.
