2015 Ford F-150

Hello, I purchased the 2015 Ford F-150 Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate and followed the directions. Everything worked correctly until I reached Step 11 - Reattach your factory tailgate cables to your new 100 Series tailgate.. The nuts are built into the tailgate. You need to either include (2) 1/2-inch nuts or state in the documentation the customer must purchase (2) 1/2-inch nuts to complete Step 11.

I attached a picture showing the Ford tailgate and cable and the finished install. The install went faster than expected less than 30 minutes and looks great on my truck.

Easy to install. After a year the finish is still flawless. We broke a latch, it didn't win the fight with the 5th wheel hitch. Was super easy and fast to get replacement. Would buy again from etrailer.

Ford F-250 Super Duty

It fits my 2020 F-250 perfectly. All the parts were in the kit. I got it within a couple of days of ordering.

The tailgate fit very good. I would like for it to have been made from a heavier gauged steel. It has not held up well to being stepped on to get in the bed of the truck. I know it was not made for that purpose but I expected a more durable product. It looks good and the paint has held up pretty good also. Overall I am happy with the tailgate.




by:
2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

It took me 15 minutes to install. Fits snugly with no rattle. It did not include the open tailgate support cables, so if you don’t have them you’ll needs some. This tailgate goes on and off so easy it could easily disappear in the night. It needs some kind of security system.

I have been using eTrailer to order new parts and accessories for both my truck and 5th wheel. Each order arrives in good shape and on time.
The after sale service has been an excellent source of information also.
Thank you eTrailer!

Works perfectly. I had one on my 2004 F250, now I have one on my new 2017 F250

Good product, had to do a little modification to get it to fit perfectly, where attaches to left bottom was about 1/4 of an inch too long, fixed that and perfect fit!!On a 2020 f 250 ,needs to be that much shorter for a great fit




by:

It fit real tight and looks good.

Can't say nothing bad about the product, it's doing the job quite well.


Comments
Still very happy with the tailgate. The mechanisms still works good.

Replaced an identical gate in service for 10 years. Product arrives somewhat beaten up from marginal packaging and needs to be sealed from water and the nicks repainted. If done carefully it will not rust. Lack of directions surprising. Fits well and looks good.

durable product the factory tailgate gets broken in half at our landscape company but these hold up great




by:
2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty

The gate fit my 2017 f250 perfect. etrailer price was great, free shipping was a bonus, and really fast




by:
2015 Ford F-150

The Tail Gate is exactly as advertised. It installs easy. The only issue was the top passenger side corner was bent (I assume from shipping) but it is a solidly built product and looks good




by:

Purchased to improve visibility when backing my boat trailer. works very well for that purpose.

Review from a similar 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate in Tailgate


I received and attempted to install the tailgate. The pins and the receivers on the tailgate are of different size. The pins are 1.25 inch diameter and the receivers internal dims on the tailgate 1.125 or even slightly less.

It looks to me as though the tailgate receivers where designed for a 1" pin


Comments
With a 2007 Chevy Silverado there are two body styles the Classic and New Body style. The Classic has a separate housing for turn signals, divided by some trim. The New Body has the front turn signal integrated into the one piece headlight housing. Based on the installation difficulties and picture of the front of trucks light housing you have the New Body style and would need part # VGM-07-100

Review from a similar 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate in Tailgate


This gate is a great replacement for the original gate which I have in storage. I do quite a bit of trailering and like the convenience and better visibility. I am searching for aa backup camera that would plug into wiring harness. Do not want to disassemble original gate to get the camera.


Comments
The gate is as I expected and have I have recommended to friends who like the look and convenience when pulling gooseneck trailers.

Review from a similar 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate in Tailgate


Fits perfectly and matches my F350 bed design nicely. Install was simple and fast. Great replacement to a tailgate that was rotting away, plus I notice the lack of drag with this new tailgate. Just like advertised, my view when backing up to hitch up is much more clearer. Awesome product.


Comments
After a year Ive still had no issues with my tailgate, I can remove it easily when I dont need it and it has held up exceptionally well, Ive scratched it a few times but a little touch up paint and its back to new. Has never rusted or let me down yet, plus I always recognize a difference in fuel mileage.

Very easy ordering process, quick delivery, and installation on my 2013 GMC was simple. I even added the logos from the old tailgate. Will definitely shop here for future needs!

Thank you for a GREAT product . My order was processed , shipped and delivered with precision . I have an older but reliable 1999 Ford 350 DWD Super Duty and your 5th tailgate fits like a custom made glove . The workmanship is excellent and the finish compliments the overall look of my truck.
