Guess I'm tailgate shopping. @#$%!!!!
What a day! First I'm commuting home on my motorcycle and get tagged by lady in a stopped car who suddenly cranks her wheels over and accelerates into me as I'm going by. She tagged my left saddlebag. I kept the bike on two wheels so I'm fine. As if that didn't suck enough, her insurance policy expired last month.
So I arrive home hoping to decompress before bed... instead I find the tailgate of my truck smashed. I had just finished waxing it yesterday afternoon and then the wife took it to visit her folks. Seems when she got back home and was turning around on our driveway she backed into a tree limb. @##$!!!!
So I guess now I have to figure out if its cheaper to fix the existing tailgate or find a replacement and have it painted. I thought I read somewhere that the 2008 tailgate needs brackets to fit the older trucks. What brackets? The ones at the bottom that it hinges on, or the upper ones that it latches into?
