    At any given time there are four or five tailgates for sale on the Craigslist of Southern Ca. I think they are stealing them in one county and selling them in another county.

    Anyone who doesnt install some sort of security is just asking for it to disappear. That thing comes off way too easy.

    Luckily, the market for stolen tacoma tailgates seems pretty low here :D

    Let's hope it stays that way....

    I just installed the clamp on the tailgate today.. The good place to get that clamp with the "key" ( E-Z clamp) is AutoZone. cheap around 2.49 before tax. you get 2 in a pack.

    That is a great idea tighten till you can just turn it and then spin it till the slot for screwdriver is facing down and finish it off with a 5/16 wrench.

    Same here. Apparently rednecks have better things to steal than a tailgate. And by things I mean copper :anonymous:

    Dunno if the first gens realize you need a wrench to remove their tailgates, where as the 2nd gens are much easier.

    Gotta watch your catalytic converters... My neighbors T100 and FJ were both hit on the street. Good ground clearance and a lot of precious metals in them. Supposedly the older ones are more valuable. :notsure:

    Yeh but the seller clearly owns a speedway blue taco and is selling his damaged gate? Or are you saying he's stolen someone elses and now selling the used one? lol

    My tailgate has a giant ding in it. That is my anti-theft technology.
