After a short phone call to Go Industries and a very few minor adjustments, I was able to install the tailgate by myself. No additional hands were needed. Since installing, my wife, friends and neighbors have all complimented on how nice the new tailgate looks. I must admit as well, it looks great. Worth the money. I also used the bushings off of the old tailgate and it fit perfectly(right side. Would recommend this product for any model they make it for.

Bought this as a surprise for my little brother to replace his stolen factory tailgate. Installation was easy. Had to do a little fitting and knock a piece off with a dremel so it closed right. For the money you can't beat it. Way cheaper than buying a new tailgate from the dealer. This tailgate is way more heavy duty than I expected. I also ordered a mcgard tailgate lock that unfortunately didn't work with this tailgate, but autoanything took care of the return without problems.

This tailgate fits like a glove. Welds on mesh are solid and paint is consistent and smooth. I was expecting some rattle and movement when closed but the gate is solid as if it was welded to the truck, doesn't budge even when shook. The item came with multiple bushing sets and "general" install instructions for various models which was confusing but one call into the company and all was well. (F350 did not need any of the bushings). Highly recommended!

at first i had trouble putting the tailgate on.called (go ind.)they were nice to talk to.found a bead of wire in the pivot bore.just enough to stop it from going over the pivot pin on the truck.took a die grinding bit,and clean it out about an inch inside,it went on prefect then.must have layed a wire feed too close,and the wire welded inside the bore.

My tailgate was a quality product that fit after adjusting and grinding one of the existing latches on the body. The hardware was supposed to be 3/8" but was actually 5/16" and too short. After purchasing the correct hardware, the gate works and looks great.

Original tailgate damaged by gooseneck trailer - might have pulled the sides of the bed in a little too. The Air Flow tailgate looks good and is very functional. Reasonably priced especially compared to the price of replacement original tailgate. Installation was not a problem using the original wires and bolts, but did have to spread the bed sides apart just a little with a jack to get a good fit. Plan on mounting the original light bar on this tailgate. Very pleased.

AFTER WE RECEIVED IT IT TOOK AWHILE TO MAKE IT FIT PROPERLY AS IT DIDN'T JUST FIT IN. IT WAS A BIT LARGER BUT AFTER SOME GRINDING AND PREPARING I WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT FIT AND IT IS GOOD QUALITY AND LOOK GREAT. IT NEEDS A WAY TO SECURE IT I HAD TO MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS TO SECURE IT BETTER.AND YOUR MEASUREMENTS NEED TO BE BETTER CUT. THERE MAYBE SOMEONE THAT HAS THE SKILL THAT I DID TO MAKE IT FIT
