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.

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!

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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!

Still working perfectly and still looks great! Wish I had gotten it sooner.

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.

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


This tailgate works great for me. It helps me to be able the back up and get my 5th wheel hitch centered w with my in bed hitch. The only thing I would like is to open the tailgate with one lever instead of individuals levers.


Comments
After 1 year, this tailgate is still working find. It serves the purpose I brought it for.i would recommend this product to anyone with a 5th wheel.

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


Fits on a 2008 F450 Lariat! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because a part of the tailgate was bent when it came in, along with a couple other bends. Wasn't a big issue, because I just bent it back and it was alright. Instructions are easy, and installation of the new tailgate was SUPER easy, even a caveman can do it. Just be sure to list ACCURATELY what make and model vehicle you have, as etrailer will ship only the appropriate items and hardware.

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


Nice tail gate. I put 3/8 all thread rod in each end and put between 2 stands for I could turn it to paint it. I took the rings off latch and put a washer on each one they closed a lot easier

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


The product was easy to assemble and install. The tailgate is a nice replacement for our damaged tailgate and adds safety to hooking up our fifth wheel with great visibility to the king pin on the coach and the fifth hitch from the side.

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


Great price. I’ve had it a year now, use it frequently as I switch out tailgates depending on what trailer I’m pulling. This one is easy to remove and install, also light weight enough to handle easily. I would definitely recommend it and purchase it again if need be.


Comments
Still like new. My tween can install it when we switch out for the gooseneck trailer. Easy and light enough to pop up in there solo.

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


Apologies for the belated review. Out-of-state for several days. After promptly helping me fix my mistake in ordering the wrong item, etrailer was very good in getting me the right tailgate. The only thing missing was the hardware to attach the two metal extenders to the bottom of the tailgate where it slips over the pivot point in the assembly. A quick trip to the hardware store and a 98 cent purchase of 4 nuts and 4 bolts completed the task. The tailgate fits and works as advertised and I would willingly use etrailer again for any needed supplies. Thank you for your help in fixing my truck. Yours, Terrill Birkner

My tailgate is still alive and well and in service. Thanks again for your help.

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


The tailgate was easy to put on and worked well, but it was stolen a month later. We bought another one from you with a lock and after a few months was also stolen off the truck. Need to find some way to secure the tailgate so it cannot be stolen. Have spent about 700 dollars on fifth wheel tailgates.

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


One year ago I purchased this model tailgate for my 2003 Silverado. I found immediately that delivery of it as without exception the fastest. This tailgate made the act of hooking and unhooking from my 5th wheel trailer was simplified tremendously. The visual of the Pin lining up with the hitch was very clear. The Tailgate did require some minor assembly by me however minimal tools were all that was needed for the assembly. This took a mere 30 minutes for me to perform and the tailgate fit perfectly. It still looks great to this day and performs excellently. I recommend this product without reservation.


Comments
I am just as happy with the tailgate as i was when I purchased it. Great Product.
