Tailgate pin

hey, the passenger side pin on my tailgate broke and now my gate is useless...of course this couldn't come at a better time since i'm moving this week... do i have to go to Ford dealership for his part? or can i just find it at a parts store? and i haven't looked at it really but is it easy to install?

i imagine if the pin is just a straight peice of steel tube that it might be difficult to get in both holes...unless there is one designed more like a toilet paper holder which is basically a shock with a spring in it so u can compress it and when u close the gate it pops open.

i haven't taken the time to look at what really happened cuz i injured my neck this week, also perfect timing since i'm moving... guess i just gotta rollw ith the punches ;(
