Tailgate flat metal straps

Does anyone know if they make the flat metal hinged straps to replace the cables on the tailgates for the superdutys?

Yeah, just get a box and tailgate from say... a 1978 F series. Problem solved. I've never seen a cable fail but I've seen plenty of bent, over loaded tailgates....

chevy had a problem with cable failure during a short span 05 ish but that was a corrosion issue or swag compression problem IIRC

but after your bike is up there the tailgate load is much less ,, just the pucker factor of the ramp trip up lol

Don't worry about it. I ride an '08 Victory Vision Tour. I bought it in January, it was only about 10 degrees outside so I hauled it in the truck, no problem! I wonder if there's a rating for them somewhere in the world???

'bama to AZ? I'd ride the bike and leave the truck in the driveway!
