This tailgate features an open design that improves your field of vision while driving and is custom fit to your vehicle. The cutout allows for easy towing of 5th-wheel and gooseneck trailers, and its aerodynamic design reduces drag. To begin our installation, we'll need to remove the factory tailgate.
