How to Install a Stromberg Carlson Tailgate on a 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.
