Husky Liners Premium 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate Installation - 2006 Dodge Ram Pickup

Today on our 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab, we'll be installing the Husky Liners Premium 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with locking handle, part number HL15330. This tailgate's great for, if we want to tow a goose neck trailer like we have a hitch for here, or a 5th wheel trailer. It will allow us easily hook up to our trailer, still our bed secure and, as you see, anything we put in here, like our tow straps to secure a vehicle on to our car hauler or whatever we need to tie down on to our trailer, we can still have in the bed of our truck without having to worry about them coming out. The aerodynamic vents allow air to pass through smoothly and improve our fuel economy when we're driving down the road. As you can see, this tailgate follows the contours of our vehicle nicely and the silver paint on it matches the silver paint on this truck very closely. It's nice feature, you don't have to worry about getting your tailgate painted if you own a silver truck. This tailgate features a lightweight aluminum construction, which is half the weight of traditional steel tailgates. It has a multi-coat finish that offers superior rust resistance even if it's scratched and has weight capacity of 200 pounds. Okay, the first thing we need to do is get our factory tailgate off.


Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate Installation - 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Today, on our 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Stromberg Carlos 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with Lock for GM Trucks, part VGM-14-4000. Here's what this tailgate is going to look like once it's installed on the truck. The biggest feature about this louvered tailgate is its cutout that comes down here, which is going to make it easier for hooking up the fifth wheel and gooseneck trailers. The tailgate is made of a very strong plastic compound that's going to help it to be very durable and resist rust. What's really nice about this tailgate is it comes with two keys in order to operate the lock, so you can lock it and then you won't be able to open it. As you can see, it works well with the factory tailgate assist.

Today we'll be taking a look at the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series Fifth Wheel Louvered Tailgate with lock for Toyota Trucks. Part number VGT-70-4000. This will fit our 2007 and later Tundras. Now here we have our tailgate installed. You'll see we have this nice drop in the center. That's gong to allows us to hook up any goosenecks or fifth wheels. We also have the option to lock it here, but we just turn our knob, take our included key, lock that up, and that's going to affect theft and tampering of the tailgate itself. The tailgate's going to be made from a glass reinforced nylon so it's going to be sturdy, strong, and very lightweight.


Rear View Safety Inc Backup Cameras and Alarms RVS-718F150 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the rear view safety back up camera system for the Ford F-150 and F-250 trucks. This is a custom fit part that is designed to fit the 2008 and newer Ford F-150 and F-250 truck. On a custom fit part, I always like to recommend to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you if this will work for your application. This is an OEMG series mirror monitor. This will replace your existing rear view mirror in your vehicle. To the left of it is a bright 4.3 color TFTLCD digital display. The 4.3 monitor is placed to the left of the mirror while the entire surface is reflective and acts as a mirror.

Now, here we have our tailgate installed. We'll see we have this nice drop here in the center. That's going to allow us to hook up any goose necks or fifth wheels. We also have the option to lock it here so we just turn our knob, take our included key, lock that up, and that's going to help to prevent theft and tampering of the tailgate, itself. The tailgate's going to be made from a glass reinforced nylon so it's going to be sturdy, strong, and very lightweight.


Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate Installation - 2016 Ram 2500

Today, on our 2016 RAM 2500. We'll be having a look at the Stromberg Carlson 4000 series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with lock. Part number VGD-10-4000. Now, this tailgate is really nice for when you are towing a gooseneck or a 5th wheeled trailer. Lower it, back-up to your trailer, hook up and you can close your tailgate. As you can see with the cut-out here, you'll have plenty of maneuverability to get into tight positions if you're backing up your trailer or making tight turns. You don't have to lower your tailgate every time once you are already connected, once you need to make a tight maneuver. The vents here will allow airflow to pass through, so you're going to have some increase fuel economy while towing your trailer but yet still keep your materials inside the bed. Now our tailgates made of a very durable composite plastic material, which follows nicely to the lines of our truck bed.


Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Handle with Lock Installation - 2011 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2011 Toyota Tacoma, we'll be installing the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Handle with Lock and Key Alike Lock Cylinder, part number PAl5400. The Pop & Lock tailgate handle is great, because it looks just like the factory tailgate handle, with the exception of having the lock added. We still retain the use of our factory backup camera in its original position, and we don't have to worry about having a second key. We can use our factory key, that starts our truck and opens our doors, without a problem, to gain access to our tailgate. This lock and tailgate handle works perfectly in conjunction with a tonneau cover, such as we have here today. This will help protect any of our valuables that we have in our truck bed. All right, here's what our tailgate handle comes with.


Stromberg Carlson Tailgate Installation - 2015 Ford F-350

Today on our 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty, we'll be installing the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with lock. Part number VG-97-4000. The great thing about this Stromberg Carlson tailgate is, when we want to hook up to our 5th wheel trailer, we can still have our tailgate up, unlike our factory tailgate where we'd have to have it lowered on down. This is great, because if we have a spare tire for our trailer in the bed of our truck, we don't have to worry about it coming out. The Stromberg Carlson tailgate fits our F-350 very nicely. The nice contoured edge follows the factory lines of our bed very nicely, just like our factory tailgate did. The louvers give is a sleek appearance, and let airflow pass through it. The lock is very simple to operate with the two included keys.


Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock Installation - 2015 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2015 Toyota Tacoma we're going to review and install the pop and lock custom tailgate lock, Part Number PAL-8540. All right. This is what the pop and lock looks like when it's installed on your truck. Very similar or actually identical to the original lock that it will replace. The original tailgate lock has a camera, it has an option for that so you don't lose it and it goes right back to its original spot. A very similar latch right here to open it up and it also has a key lock that actually works with the original key.

Tailgate Questions and Answers

  • How to Determine the Difference Between the New and Classic Body Styles for a 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • The easiest way to tell the difference between the 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic and New Body Style is the tail gate or the tail lights. The new body style will have a large Chevy bow tie emblem in the center of the tail gate. It will also have red tail light assemblies. Take a look at the parts I have linked that show the new body style and the classic body style. If you have a classic model, you will need to use # VGM-99-4000. I do not believe the new body applied to the 2500 and 3500...

  • Will View of Backup Camera Be the Same as Stock when Using 5th Wheel Tailgate on 2011 Ford F-250
  • Because of the gap in the center of the 5th wheel tailgate # HL15130-38, the rear view camera will be a little lower than stock on your 2011 Ford F-250. However the view should not be dramatically different than the stock view and you may be able to slightly adjust the angle of the camera.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate # HL15130 for 2015 Ford F-250 SD
  • The 5th wheel louvered tailgate you referenced, the Husky Liners Premium Tailgate # HL15130, is indeed a correct fit for your 2015 Ford F-250 Super duty. I checked with the folks at Husky Liners to confirm its compatibility with your truck.

This item uses all factory hinge and latch points, and...

  • Trailer Tailgate Latch Recommendations For Trailer Pulled by a Dodge Ram Pickup
  • While the Gorilla Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist # GL1 is a sturdy product that reduces the lift force needed to close the gate as well as slows the gates opening, I must recommend that you always have a latch or lock on your trailer. The Gorilla Lift by itself is not enough to keep the gate to your trailer closed while traveling. If you need a tailgate latch for your trailer, I recommend the Redline Bolt-On Stainless Steel Spring Latch # SL716SS. It features a stainless steel...

  • How Does DeeZee Tailgate Assist for Chevy Silverado # DZ43100 Install on Truck Body
  • The DeeZee Tailgate Assist for Chevy Silverado # DZ43100 installs without drilling on the drivers-side of your truck using the included hardware. Installation consists of removing two OEM bolts, one near the hinge and one where the cable attaches, with a 13mm socket and installing the included post stud and shock.

But like you noticed a customer of ours was able to use the part # HL15248 on his Stromberg Carslon tailgate.

  • Could the DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43301 be Removed Easily for Tailgate Removal
  • Once installed the DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43301 could be pretty easily removed so that you could take your tailgate off for your camper. The only component that you would need to remove would be the shock absorber that attaches to the bed rail and truck bed. The shock just snaps off and on so it would be pretty easy. Check out the install video I attached for more info.

  • How to Tell the Difference Between 2007 Chevy or GMC Silverado or Sierra Old and New Body Styles
  • To determine if your 2007 GMC Sierra is the old or the new body style all you have to do is look at the back of the truck. If it is the old body style (Classic) then it will have amber turn signal lenses at the rear tail lights. New body style models will not have amber lenses and will also have a large logo in the center of the tailgate. I have included a picture showing old and new body styles side by side. The trucks are Silverados but the same differences apply to the Sierras. If...

  • Fifth Wheel Tailgate Recommendations for a 2012 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Crew Cab Dually
  • The custom fit 5th wheel tailgates essentially fit the same way as the factory tailgate so a spray-in bedliner should not be an issue. However, if there is interference you will have to remove some of the spray-in liner to allow the tailgate to close properly and open all of the way. The # VGM-07-100, is made of tubular steel and it is going to be very strong but with a weight capacity, 100 pounds. But the steel is not as corrosion resistant as other materials. It does not include a...
