5th Wheel Tailgates for Chevrolet Silverado

Adding a fifth wheel tailgate to your Chevrolet Silverado will improve the aerodynamics of your Chevrolet Silverado and adding clearance for towing a fifth wheel trailer. A great addition for towing or to increase your Chevrolet Silverado's gas mileage.




What our customers are saying:

Great value, fast service and exactly what I ordered. Much better than going to the local auto parts who still have to order it and charge more.

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.



Husky Liners Tailgate Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, we're going to be doing an installation of the Husky Liners Premium 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with the Locking Handle, part number HL15240. You can see the louvered tailgate once it's installed. Of course, we've got the drop down to allow for our use next to things like that to be connected without any problem. This is also going to give us an advantage in that this is about half the weight of a standard steel tailgate. It's also louvered. While we're dropping weight in the truck just like the new cars coming out, they don't have spare tires to help with fuel economy, losing weight is going to help us with our fuel economy, and this louvered design is going to allow air to pass through rather than be caught in there. It can really help to improve our fuel economy. This is a locking tailgate.
