08+ Tailgate
Does a tailgate off an 08+ superduty fit my 2000 F250? I replaced my mirrors with 08's and just had to slightly modify them but fit perfect.

Yes, I have an 08 gate on an 04.
All you have to do is change the hinge bracket on the pasanger side of the bed.

Where can I find an 08 tailgate at a decent price?

I believe your right, its been a while:doh:

Not to be the search nazi, cause I really hate that chit when others say it :wink[3]:

I have posted the driver's part number in a previous thread. It is a simple bolt on.

You don't need the hinge if you remove the torsion rod on the '08 and up tail gate.

what would be a good price for one?

I just did this job and the t-50 torx bolts are installed with locktite. I was swapping between two trucks, so I had double the work.
They were a bear to get out. I worked them back and forth with some pb blaster but heat would have helped a lot.

I have heard prices vary if you have the step included or not. 250-500 bucks from what I have seen.
