These items did not fully cover the open vents as I had hoped but satisfactory for my needs. The packaging of the items as one group allow scratches to occur on the face of the metal strips.

  • How to Add Clearance Between 2015 Ram 1500 and Travel Trailer Without Using an Extension
    Thank you for all of the details! It is true that using a hitch extender will reduce the weight capacity of the trailer hitch on your 2015 Ram 1500 (or any vehicle for that matter) by 50% so unless your hitch is rated high enough to take the hit and still be rated higher than your towing setup we need to look at another option. I'm not sure why you need the clearance or what weight distribution (WD) system you currently have but most WD systems use the same type of design so you might...

  • Can the Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate for a 2014 Ford F-250/350 Be Painted
    The Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate part # VG-97-4000 which is a fit for a 2014 Ford F-250/F-350 can be paint matched to the vehicle. That said, if done so I would add the Louver Insert Kit part # 4000-V and the Louvered Tailgate Insert part # VI-4000 and have these painted as well for a very nice and clean finished install look. The finish of the product will all come down to proper prep work which is why this part would be best left to a professional.

  • 5th Wheel Tailgate and Camera Recommendation for a 2018 Ram 2500
    The only 5th wheel tailgates available for your 2018 Ram 2500 are the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series # VGD-10-4000 and 100 Series # VGD-10-100. You can add the Insert Kit # 4000-V to the 4000 Series to gain a little more privacy. While neither of these have a backup camera built-in, we do have a selection of license plate-mounted cameras that you can choose from. Some of these have a monitor while others will replace your rearview mirror and have the monitor built-in. I have attached...

  • 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Tailgate for a 2017 Ford F-250 with Rearview Camera
    The only replacement tailgate we have for your 2017 Ford F-250 is for 5th wheel and gooseneck towing applications. If you need a 5th wheel/gooseneck tailgate for your truck then the only option I have for you is the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with Lock for Ford Trucks part # VG-15-4000. This tailgate will retain your factory backup camera's mounting location but does not have the light feature you are inquiring about. The tailgate is also made of a lightweight...

    We have 2 different 5th wheel tailgates that I recommend for your 2007 Dodge Ram 3500. The best one for your application really just comes down to what style you like better. The Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate # VGD-02-100 is made of heavy-duty steel and has a powder coat finish that can be painted to match the color of your truck. This has a weight capacity of 100 lbs but it is see-through. The other design we have is the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered...

  • Will Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate Fit 2011 Ram 1500 with RamBoxes
    The RamBoxes on your 2011 Ram pickup don't really affect the size of the tailgate as much as they do the internal space of your truck bed. If you check out the attached installation picture and video you can see where we installed the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate # VGD-10-4000 on a 2017 Ram 2500 with the RamBox option.

  • Can Stromberg Carlson VGD-02-4000 5th Wheel Tailgate Be Painted
    The Stromberg Carlson # VGD-02-4000 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate would be the correct fit for your truck. The tailgate itself isn't paintable, but the available louver insert kit, part # 4000-V can be painted, which would give a pretty cool look.

  • 5th Wheel Tailgate Options For A 2004 Dodge Ram 3500

  • Louvered 5th Wheel Tailgate for a 2017 Ford F-350
    I do have a 5th wheel tailgate for your 2017 Ford F-350 but a 5th wheel tailgate from a 2012 Ford F-350 will not work for you nor is there a kit to convert one to the other. Your best option is to purchase the tailgate specifically designed for your truck and sell the old one to recoup some of your money. For your 2017 Ford F-350, I recommend using the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate part # VG-15-4000. This is currently the only option we have for you at this time. The...

  • Covering the Open Parts of a 5th Wheel Tail Gate on a 2008 Dodge Ram
    If you have the Stromberg-Carlson 4000 series 5th wheel tail gate for your 2008 Dodge Ram, # VGD-02-4000, then you could use insert # VI-4000 and louver insert kit # 4000-V. This will be the best option for closing up the 4000 series 5th wheel tail gates. If you have a different 5th wheel tail gate there are no options.

  • 5th Wheel Tailgate for a 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    I recommend going with the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series Tailgate # VG-15-4000 for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty because it features a lock for security and a louvered design that reduces wind drag. If you would like to keep prying eyes from peering into the bed of your pickup then you can install the Louver Insert Kit # 4000-V as well which fills in the gaps of the louvered design. This tailgate has a glass-filled, black composite plastic frame that is lightweight but still sturdy....

  • Solution for Lowered Tailgate on 2016 Ford F-350 Being too Close to 5th Wheel Trailer when Coupling
    If you have a Lippert 1621 pin box that measures 17-3/4" from the center of the king pin to the center of the first row of bolt holes then I do have a pin box that will give you a little bit of additional clearance. The Trailair Air Ride 5th Wheel Pin Box # LC158778 is a direct replacement for a Lippert 1621 pin box and measures 19-1/2" from the center of the king pin to the first row of bolt holes (see attached picture).

    If you have the Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30890 set to max height and you are still needing some extra clearance when backing into your driveway then you either need to adjust the height settings of your pin box, install a 5th wheel tailgate like part # VGM-14-4000 for your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500, raise the overall height of your trailer, or a combination of all 3 options. There is no way to make your M5 5th wheel hitch taller. I honestly like the louvered tailgate option...

  • Will Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate VGD-02-4000 Fit a 2010 Dodge Ram 3500

If you would like to fill the cutout on the tailgate while you are not towing, we offer an insert, part # VI-4000. An insert kit, part # 4000-V, is also available if you would like to fill in the gaps between the louvers.

  • Does the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate Sit Flush with Bed on 2002 Ford F-250
    I spoke with my contact at Stromberg Carlson and she stated that on a 2002 Ford F-250 the 4000 series tail gate, # VG-97-4000, will sit flush with the bed rails on the truck. You should not have a problem with the tonneau cover. On the sides of the tailgate where it is the tallest, it measures 23-3/4 inches tall. Since you do have a tonneau cover you may be interested in adding the Insert Kit, # 4000-V, for added security when not towing the 5th wheel.
