Stromberg Carlson Tailgate Installation - 2007 Chevrolet Silverado New Body

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.
