Default dxeflyr : Tailgate hardware?

Tailgate hardware?
Post by dxeflyr on Oct 25, 2006, 1:00am

Finally got a tailgate this week. The problem is, the metal tabs normally welded to the back of the bed to secure the gate are missing on my truck. Are they available? Has anyone else had this problem?

The tabs used to latch the tailgate are welded on. Look to be about 3/8 steel.

Here ya go, Bill. I think this is what you're after:












That's on the passenger side. Driver's side is a mirror image, as you probably guessed!

Here are the measurements to go along with the pictures.

1-3/4" side to side x 2-1/2"

The tab below his quarter is 1-1/4" from the bed to the end of it. The chain hole is 1/2" diameter in the middle of it.

The angle on the top of the hook side starts 2-3/8" from the bottom. (I measured from where the bottom would be if the little 3/8" on each side notch hadn't been there.)

The slot for the hook is just a hair over 1". Just make it exactly the same as the slot in your tailgate. Matter of fact, you should make it from the tailgate slot so it lines up right anyway.

Thanks a lot for your efforts, Tim! I really appreciate it. I will go down to the hangar and get a couple of these cranked out next week. Thanks again!
