yup, drivers side hinge assembly, not a cheap gate tho if you get the one with the step in it, but yea the drivers side hinge also has a spring assist to help pick up the heavy *** gate, but its a direct bolt on

Like the others said you just need an '08 drivers side roller (hinge). The part # from Ford is 4L3Z 83430B39 AA and its $7.52. Heres my '08 tailgate on my '02.
