Tailgate info needed please

My 2000 f250 has a charcoal colered tailgate and im wanting to find a white one so it will match, and was wondering what all years will fit it and what all models have the same tailgate?

1999-09 will fit. If you put on an 08 or newer tailgate you will have to change the driver side hinge in order for it to work.

Nope not entirely true. Thats only if it has the lift assist on the gate. If the 08 up tailgate doesnt have that you dont have to change a thing

All the ones I've seen have the spring assist. If you choose to not use the spring assist, then you must remove the torsion spring in the tailgate. It will then work without changing the drivers side hinge pin.
