Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate Installation - 2016 GMC Sierra 2500

Today on our 2016 GMC 2500HD, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series Fifth Wheel Louvered Tailgate, part number VGM-14-4000. The Stromberg Carlson Louvered Tailgate is the perfect addition when towing a gooseneck or fifth wheel trailer. It has a convenient cutout design that's going to improve your visibility when towing. The vented design is going to help reduce that drag and may improve your fuel economy. The locking latch adds security to ensure no one can remove it. It's also easy to use, which means it's easy to open. Just give it one good turn to the right and then it opens up. With it down, I'd like to point out that the safety cables are included.


Stromberg Carlson Tailgate Installation - 2012 Ram 1500

Today, on our 2012 RAM 1500, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate, part number BGD-10-100. The Stromberg Carlson louvered tailgate is the perfect addition for when you're towing a 5th-wheel or gooseneck trailer. You could see it has that convenient cutout design that's going to improve your visibility when towing and backing up to your trailer. It's also vented, so it's going to reduce drag, and it may improve your fuel economy. The spring loaded latches on each side make it easy to open. With it open, I'd like to point out that it has a hundred pound weight capacity.


Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate Installation - 2016 Ford F-150

Today on our 2016 Ford F150 SuperCab we're going to be doing a test fit on the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Louvred Tailgate, part number VG-15-100. The Stromberg Carlson Louvered Tailgate is the perfect addition for your 5th wheel or gooseneck. It features that convenient cut out design which is going to improve visibility when backing up to or towing that 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer. The vented design here is going to help reduce drag and it may improve your fuel economy. The metal latches make it easy to use for when opening and closing. With it down I'd like to point out that it does have a 100 pound weight capacity, so be sure you don't stand or sit on it. The whole thing is made out of a heavy duty steel tubular construction.


Husky 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with Locking Handle Installation - 2012 Ram 1500

Today on our 2012 RAM 1500 we're going to be doing a test fit on the Husky Liners premium fifth wheel, louvered tailgate, part number HL15340. The Husky Liners louvered tailgate is the perfect addition when towing your fifth wheel or gooseneck trailer. It features that convenient cutout design so it's going to improve visibility when towing or backing up. It also has a vented design that's going to reduce drag and may improve your fuel economy. It has a factory style locking latch, so it's going to be easy to use. With it down, I'd like to point out that it has a 200 pound weight capacity. It's not designed to be a step, so just be careful.


Pop and Lock Locks PAL5408 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Handle with Lock in a silver sky metallic color. This is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2005 to 2015 Toyota Tacoma trucks with or without a camera. Now, this locking tailgate handle will discourage theft of your cargo and even of your tailgate, helps create secure storage for your valuables when used with a tonneau cover or truck-bed cap. The lock cylinders have the BOLT codeable technology so it can be keyed to match your OEM truck key. It's as simple as it will code the lock to the vehicle just by inserting your truck key and then turning it until it stops. It does use a tough, armored steel lock to help resist tampering.


Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate Review - 2017 Ford F-150

Today on our 2017 Ford F-150, we're going to be testing fitting the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series Fifth Wheel Louvered Tailgate with locks for Ford trucks, part number VG-15-4000. The strong and durable plastic tailgate is great for both gooseneck and fifth wheel applications. It has locking capabilities to prevent theft, and is louvered to reduce wind noise and drag while you drive. Especially this protects your OEM tailgate by replacing it for those trips with the fifth wheels and goosenecks so you don't damage it as you travel. The tailgate is blow-molded, which makes it lightweight yet strong, and also makes it corrosion and rust resistant. Right now we have it in its lock position. Simply take our key, unlock it, turn it, and it's ready to go. The turn latch, coupled with the lightweight design, also makes this easy to use one-handed, if necessary.




Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate Installation - 2012 Ford F-250

Today on our 2012 Ford F250 we're going to be taking a look at the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate, part number VG-97-100. This is what our tailgate looks like fully installed. It's going to have that nice big cutout so you're going to have access to your 5th wheel, as well as when you're backing up you're going to be able to see. The louver design is going to cut down wind noise and drag, possibly increase your gas mileage, and make it easier to see when you're backing up to your trailer. As you can see, this is a custom fit tailgate, and the lines of it are going to contour perfectly to the body of our truck. Now, this is made of a heavy-duty steel tube construction, so it's going to last a while. It comes with this nice gloss black finish, but it is paintable if you want it to match your truck.

Tailgate Questions and Answers

  • How to Determine the Difference Between the New and Classic Body Styles for a 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • The easiest way to tell the difference between the 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic and New Body Style is the tail gate or the tail lights. The new body style will have a large Chevy bow tie emblem in the center of the tail gate. It will also have red tail light assemblies. Take a look at the parts I have linked that show the new body style and the classic body style. If you have a classic model, you will need to use # VGM-99-4000. I do not believe the new body applied to the 2500 and 3500...

  • OEM Backup Camera Relocation Kit for Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Tailgate
  • Another brand of 5th wheel tailgate, Husky, does offer camera relocation kits for various vehicle brands. For example, their Dodge Ram kit is part # HL15348 and this fits their Premium 5th wheel tailgate # HL15330. The Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgates # VGD-02-4000 and # VGD-10-4000 do not currently have an OEM backup camera relocation kit made for them. My contact at Stromberg Carlson advised that they are in the process of evaluating such a kit but do not have one ready...

  • Trailer Tailgate Latch Recommendations For Trailer Pulled by a Dodge Ram Pickup
  • While the Gorilla Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist # GL1 is a sturdy product that reduces the lift force needed to close the gate as well as slows the gates opening, I must recommend that you always have a latch or lock on your trailer. The Gorilla Lift by itself is not enough to keep the gate to your trailer closed while traveling. If you need a tailgate latch for your trailer, I recommend the Redline Bolt-On Stainless Steel Spring Latch # SL716SS. It features a stainless steel...

  • How to Remove the Tailgate of a 2009 Chevy Silverado
  • Since you already have the passenger side of the tailgate of your 2009 Chevy Silverado off all you need to do is move the tailgate to the right to get it to slide off of the hinge and then it will be totally off. Check out the install video I attached for the part # VGM-07-4000 to see how it's done.

  • Comparison Between Rack'Em Double Barrel and Gorilla-Lift Tailgate Lift Assist Systems
  • Between the Rack'Em Double Barrel Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist # RA-27C and the Gorilla-Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist # GL1, we do in fact sell more of the Double Barrel # RA-27C. As far as quality of the product, the Double Barrel # RA-27C and the Gorilla-Lift # GL1 are both good quality. As you mentioned, when it comes to installation the Double Barrel # RA-27C will require about half of the Gorilla-Lift # GL1 since there is only 1 lift rather than 2. The Gorilla-Lift...

  • How Does DeeZee Tailgate Assist for Chevy Silverado # DZ43100 Install on Truck Body
  • The DeeZee Tailgate Assist for Chevy Silverado # DZ43100 installs without drilling on the drivers-side of your truck using the included hardware. Installation consists of removing two OEM bolts, one near the hinge and one where the cable attaches, with a 13mm socket and installing the included post stud and shock. You do not need to modify the vehicle (again, no drilling and no cutting) and all required parts for complete installation are included in the kit.

  • Recommended Lift Gate Assist For Utility Trailers
  • The Gorilla-Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist w/ Cable - 300 lbs # GL1 is a great system that I highly recommend because it utilizes stainless steel cables with sturdy springs to assist each side of the tailgate evenly to prevent warping. I've attached a couple videos as well as the link to the item's page for purchase. This makes raising and lowering your tailgate easy and controlled.

  • Does Rackem Double Barrel Trailer Tailgate Assist, # RA-27C Use a Chain or Cable

  • Could the DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43301 be Removed Easily for Tailgate Removal
  • Once installed the DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43301 could be pretty easily removed so that you could take your tailgate off for your camper. The only component that you would need to remove would be the shock absorber that attaches to the bed rail and truck bed. The shock just snaps off and on so it would be pretty easy. Check out the install video I attached for more info.

  • Back Up Camera Relocation Kit Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 with 5th Wheel Tailgate
  • We don't offer a confirmed fit way to relocate the camera on your 2015 GMC Sierra that has a Stromberg Carlson tailgate. But like you noticed a customer of ours was able to use the part # HL15248 on his Stromberg Carslon tailgate. I wish we had more info on how he did it, but I did attach a picture he sent us that shows how it looks installed. Normally this kit would be used on the part # HL15240 on your vehicle.

  • How to Tell the Difference Between 2007 Chevy or GMC Silverado or Sierra Old and New Body Styles
  • To determine if your 2007 GMC Sierra is the old or the new body style all you have to do is look at the back of the truck. If it is the old body style (Classic) then it will have amber turn signal lenses at the rear tail lights. New body style models will not have amber lenses and will also have a large logo in the center of the tailgate. I have included a picture showing old and new body styles side by side. The trucks are Silverados but the same differences apply to the Sierras. If...

Husky Liners offers a lightweight but durable aluminum tailgate, part # HL15130. The Husky Liners tailgate is lockable.

  • Can Gorilla-Lift Tailgate Lift Assist be Used on Folding Trailer Ramp
  • The Gorilla-Lift Tailgate Lift Assist # GL1 could be used on a folding ramp. Yes, it should be attached to the first section of the ramp that is connected to the trailer. You could either fold the ramp and then lift or if your ramp allows you can use the lift assist to raise the entire ramp before folding.

  • Fifth Wheel Tailgate Recommendations for a 2012 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Crew Cab Dually
  • The custom fit 5th wheel tailgates essentially fit the same way as the factory tailgate so a spray-in bedliner should not be an issue. However, if there is interference you will have to remove some of the spray-in liner to allow the tailgate to close properly and open all of the way. The # VGM-07-100, is made of tubular steel and it is going to be very strong but with a weight capacity, 100 pounds. But the steel is not as corrosion resistant as other materials. It does not include a...

You can use the Stromberg Carlson 100 series tailgate # VGD-02-100, 4000 series # VGD-02-4000, or Husky aluminum tailgate # HL15330. Each of these will fit dually models. The 100 series is all steel and has a capacity of 100 pounds if you needed to temporarily place anything on it when lowered.
