Stromberg Carlson Tailgate Installation - 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

On this 2005 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to show you a Stromberg Carlson 4000 series fifth wheel and gooseneck tailgate, part number VGN dash 07 dash 4000. Taking our first look at the tailgate, you can see it has a generous opening for your fifth wheel, or in this case, gooseneck hitch in this truck. You don't have to worry about lowering your tailgate to hook up. Continue with the look of it, you can see how this edge of a tailgate matches the body work above the tail light, also matches the curve of the tail light as well, matches the seam right here, and also the bodywork below the tail light. Now, I want to take a little bit closer look at the louvers here, how the air can pass through the tailgate. The gap is probably a little under half an inch. This tailgate is a composite construction, which means you got the plastic outside, which really saves on the weight of the tailgate, but also on the inside, we lower it, we can see the steel components as well that gives it the strength.
