  • How to Wire Pop & Lock Tailgate on Honda Ridgeline Using Wiring Behind B-Pillar
  • The B-pillar is located where the driver's seat belt is stored (see photo). You will need to remove the driver's door sill trim, left rear door sill trim, door opening seal and the B-pillar lower trim cover before you can remove the B-pillar cover itself. There are several retaining tabs and clips that come off with each piece. I recommend using a trim removal like # ALL648544 to lower the chances of damaging one or more of these pieces since you need to re-install them. Once you remove...

  • Troubleshooting Bully Integrated LH-003 Tailgate Lock on 1999 Chevy C1500
  • The 1999 model year was a split model year for GM trucks. They made the C/K series which was mechanically identical to the 1998 model and the Silverado/Sierra which was mechanically identical to the 2000 model.

  • Can I Keep the Factory Backup Camera When Using 5th Wheel Tailgate on a 2019 Ram 2500
  • I do have an option for you but the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate part # VGD-10-4000 does not have a spot for the factory backup camera. Therefore you would either need to find a way to mount this yourself, go without, or use a new camera system. For the new system, the best option we have is the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System part # RVS-718-DODGE and part # RVS-778. This system will replace the rear view mirror with a dual purpose mirror/monitor so you...

  • Troubleshooting Tailgate Latch Not Releasing With Lock LH-003 Installed
  • The Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock - 1999-2007 GM Full Size Pickups # LH-003 prevent the latch from pulling in when the handle is pulled.

You may need to shorten the rods or increase spring tension on the rods to get the tailgate to work properly with this lock. Based on your photos there is no room for the rods to move to release the latches when you pull on the handle.
