    We do not have one for the 2016 and on. We are still working on one for the 2016 plus tailgate locks. We have tried a few designs but did not like the fit. We have a new design that will be out next year, it will be worth the wait.

    Those are modified washers for a computer hard drive that was destroyed. I was looking for the DIY approach. I do have CNC machines so the mods were easy however it could be done on a drill press. :)

    Put this clamp on my 2014 Gen 2. Took it off when I traded for my 2016 Gen 3. Took about 10 mins to install . Much cheaper than a new tailgate !!

    My dad had his Ranger's tailgate jacked at his job. He ended up spray painting a piece of plywood red and writing Ford on it...lmao. I will definitely be doing this little mod on my precious Taco.
