Can I take off my tailgate w reverse cam?

So I've been wondering for a little while can I take my tailgate off if I have the back up cam? I'm curious if I can unplug the harness somewhere to take it off if I have to. Thanks!

I'm sure you can. Put the tail gate down and look for the wiring going into the tail gate. They have to disconnect some how.

I've seen the harness I just haven't dug into any farther, might be getting an inbed spreader so it will have to come off

Like Travis said, these do come off. There is a quick disconnect that's visible below the center of the tailgate between the bumper and the lower tailgate. Remember, these are heavier than one might think so have buddy help ya out or really have a firm hold when removing.

I did a little search and it should be under the truck if you trace the wire by the spare tire.

Ok thanks guys I'll check when I'm done work, I wouldn't have thought to have a buddy help but it makes sense that these gates are heavier! Thanks!

Ouch, my dad was always notorious for laying drills on my bumper and I lowered my gate onto a drill in my 6.0, left a nice dent and deep scratch, I check now all the time for anything lol
