    i noticed little dents in the tailgate...(this thread is worthless without pics) before u guys reply with that animation check this...its the kind of dent u can see only from a side and with the glare but not when u look straight at it...could it be the tailgate bends or dents when i put weight on it?

    Mine were created by a drunk driving illegal alien. Actually, they're fixed but get used to it because the metal on all vehicles is getting thinner and thinner in an attempt to save weight. That's the price you pay for CAFE standards.

    Because a lot of us are sick and tired of illegals in our country flaunting our laws. Here illegally, driving drunk, no license to drive, no insurance and no assets to attach if you can catch them.

    So we pay more in insurance and they get off Scott free. Just like the illegal that totaled my Mazda pick-up back in 1996. He was drunk, ran a red light and took off running. I caught and held his 2 friends that were also drunk. The cops did nothing to them or about finding the driver.

    If he had been a citizen or here legally and not a transient I would have had a chance to recover some of the damage in civil court.

    That's what makes the difference.
