Delivery was quick even though there was a weather delay. The Stromberg-Carlson tailgate was as described and looks great. The instructions say not to set on the tailgate because the cables won't support the weight. Even though I used the cables from the Chevy tailgate, I won't be setting on it because the gate itself appears a tad bit flimsy. 175890


Comments
The tailgate is still functioning as designed. After a year, l think I would have rather had a metal tailgate...just more substantial. This one keeps stuff in, though.

Received the tailgate within 3 business days, all in good condition. Installed within 20 minutes. I did view the installation video on You Tube before I purchased which was very helpful. The printed installation instructions were not all that clear, and without the video may have been quite frustrating. With the knowledge from the video, installation was a breeze. The product works well, but could use one small improvement. The latch handle does not "spring return" so you have to remember to turn it back after unlatching or the tailgate does not latch again. Over all though, great product. 343963

ordering was super easy; shipping was exactly as expected; product was well packaged; super easy to install; downside for me...my horse trailer gooseneck will not clear cut out when hitching and unhitching. realize I should have checked measurements more carefully before ordering but...no returns once installed so it really doesn't serve my purpose. otherwise really great product and I loved how easy it was to install. 718272

Shipping was quick. Trimming involved in putting caps and lower screws on. Alignment is not the greatest. Although it will serve it's purpose, you get what you pay for. 692773

was disappointed that gate could not be painted, had purchased $75. 00 worth of automotive paint and clear before gate arrived, and now cannot return it or use it.... should have mentioned that in the ad for the gate !!!! also the passenger side does not fit tight, have tried to loosen and adjust but won't work, guess I will have to put a bungi on it to pull it tight, and that is ashamed, for the amount of money paid to purchase.. I will say install was easy other than the problems trying to get it from rattling. Just have to live with it now. I dare you to post this review. 669916


Comments
According to Stromberg Carlson, the tailgate itself should not be painted but if the optional # 4000-V
Louver Insert Kit for Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Tailgates
$29.08
louver kit is purchased, the louvers can be painted. From what my Stromberg rep tells me, the tailgate striker pins on the truck can be adjusted to improve the tailgates fit.

I gave it four stars because the original was damaged in delivery. When I contacted the company they were VERY gracious! I sent them a picture of the damage and that day a new product was shipped! Upon receiving the new shipment it was double boxed to ensure no damage! Great customer service! Thanks. Oh, and UPS picked up the return product at no cost to me! 585273

It’s plastic, don’t step on it, remove it before you try to load anything with marginal weight to it. The metal edges are riveted to the plastic center piece, those rivets will tear out. Looks ok, just no strength. 573928

I wish I would have went with one of the metal ones. I believe the metal ones have a high rating on the tailgate load.(load bearing weight in the open position) 490466
