Question 2008 tailgate on an 03

Hey Yall, I was wondering if anyone knows if an 08 tailgate will fit on an 03 bed, I havent seen one up close but was thinking of getting one if it will work.

Thanks

The '08 tailgates will work. The beds are the same.

It will work and so will the 08 taillights. You will just need to buy a bracket for the driver's side of the tailgate- that's what I know of.

Hey Ditty, I think they have gone up. I heard of one for 1k! A local truck/trailer place here that puts service body beds on and such had a sale last weekend, and they wanted 300 for a white one off of an 02 that had some scratches on it!
