Today, on this 2007 Chevrolet Silverado new body extended cab, we're going to install part number VGM-07-4000. This is a Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th wheel louvered tailgate. The first thing we need to do is go ahead and remove our tailgate. We'll go ahead and take some tension off the cables and we'll go ahead and remove the cables. Typically, you pick up a corner here and then we can pull it out away from the truck. Okay, now installing your new tailgate pretty much reverses the order of removing the original tailgate. Now, the tailgate does come with some special bushings that will fit on the end where it slides in. However, in this truck, we didn't have to use any of them.
Today on this 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Series new body style; were going to do a test fit for part number, VGM-07-100. Were going to start off with our tailgate already removed and well go ahead and take the new tailgate and put it into place. First off, we are going to take the bushing that comings with the tailgate, install it on the pin on the driver side. Then well take the tailgate and slide it over that bushing and then we can go ahead and install the tailgate just like any other tailgate. Well go ahead and take the latch and well pull it in a little bit on each side and then push the tailgate into place until it snaps in. Inaudible 00:00:40 like your tailgate matches the contour of the bed by the taillight.
