Video Transcript for Stromberg Carlson Tailgate Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on this 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, were going to do a test fit of part number VGM-07-100 from Stromberg Carlson. This is our 100 series fifth wheel tailgate, and has a convenient cutout for towing a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch when youre hitching up. Well start off our test fit with the tailgate already removed from our truck, so lets go ahead and install our new tailgate in the same fashion the original tailgate would. Well start off by sliding the tailgate into the hinge onto the drives side, then well go over to the passengers side, line up the hinge, put the tailgate at about a 45 degree angle and slide it into place. Well go ahead and push it up until our latches meet the pins on the bed. Now well do one pin at a time.

Well pull it out, get it started and then well go to the other side and pull it out and then push it into place, and then go back to the other side and make sure its secure as well. Thats how out tailgate looks on our truck. To lower the tailgate well pull the pin out on one side to get it started, and then go to the other side and pull the pin out there. Thats it. The tailgate will rest on a bumper in the lowered position.

We stress we did not state anything about using the original cables from the tailgate, however there looks like there is a couple holes on each side that you could use to attach your cables to if you so desire. With that, that will finish it of our test fit of part number VGM-017-100 on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado.

Good construction, fit was good, looks nice on truck. Better than I expected as far as weight and good look, price for this product is really a bargain. I have paid a lot more for a very good tailgate (600 dollars) turns out it did hold up to backing into a pole. Point is I could have had three of these and still have the good fit, good look and function. Keep up the good work, there is a pole out there somewhere just waiting to jump in back of me. Recommend. 650868


Comments
Just as happy now as the day I put it on. I still recommend highly. Finish still looks new, latches still work okay and I like the look on my truck.

Much better replacement than finding an original factory gate as I dented mine up pretty good with a forklift. I pull 5th wheel and gooseneck quite often so this will be a great accessory. 1 person can install this but will help to have an extra set of hands especially when installing and adjusting the latches. I was impressed with how well this gate lines up with lines of the bed. Flush, clean lines. Doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. I will be color matching the gate eventually to the truck if the powder coat finish starts wearing off as I do paint, sandblast, and powder coat for a living. As far as dealing with etrailer, I ordered on a Monday and Wednesday the truck was backing into our shop dropping off the gate. Can't get much better than that when shipping was included. 704244

Package arrived after a little delay with shipping, but the shipping company, Estes, was very professional and had great customer service. Having online videos on the installation of the tailgate and 5th wheel hitch was extremely helpful. 581636

I purchased this tailgate to replace my stock gate that was damaged. I received it in 3 days. Although the box showed some damage the tailgate was perfect. I installed it in a very short time and I am very happy with the fit and finish. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a low cost, good quality replacement tailgate. 581252

Tailgate shipped quick with no scratches, but top left corner was bent, I was able to straighten it with a rubber mallet ,probably dropped somewhere along the way. I installed it in about 20 minutes, looks good works good, was what I was expecting. Would buy again ,this product from this vendor. 497507

I've order a tailgate once before fore my 2000 Ford F250 and was really satisfied with that one. I now have a 2008 Chevy Silverado and wanted one like it. Upon receiving the tailgate and opening I was once again really satisfied. The tailgate is so easy to install the hardware and to finally install on the pickup. I highly recommend etrailer for your pickup and trailer needs. 454647

I had the tailgate primed and painted and it is holding up well. The tailgate makes connecting the 5th wheel a lot easier and looks good as well. I would recommend this unit as a good investment. 431208

I just installed the tailgate so I can't speak to it's durability. However, once I figured out the hardware and installed the tailgate it fit perfectly and locked snuggly into place. The instructions were not clear and the photos were too dark to be functional. Once I put the tailgate in place and looked at the hardware I could see how it had to go together and where the rubber bumpers had to go. Glueing the bumpers was a very useful instruction. 409459

Installing the tailgate was not as easy as I thought. The pictures were too small and hard to see. I went on line and was able to see pictures that helped. The channel bumper directions were not very clear.Thank goodness for the pictures. the side insert did not fit. The side inserts from the factory tailgate were too big for the new tailgate and did not fit either. After all said and done I am happy with the new tailgate. 381557

I received my 5th wheel tailgate looks great on our Chevy 2500. There really wasn't much to the install however I did need to use rubber cement on the two rubber bumper's one on each side. 380010
