You need a bracket to make his fit yours so I would thin you need a bracket to make yours fit his but I've not heard of anyone outing the older gate on a newer truck that's a good question.

His truck needs the older style hinge on the drivers side. That's it

when you switch tailgates give him your left hinge (mounted to the bed) and he needs to give you his left hinge and thats it

I believe 99-07 swap straight across, no hinge mods. 08-up swap straight across with each other. The only time you have to modify the hinge is when you take an 08-up down to the 99-07 year models.
