Very nice looking and fits tailgate opening well. My problem, I would think the latches would fit the factory latching posts better. You will need to add a washer to the post. Another issue, and a big one for me, I thought I was buying a quality product for the money it cost. A locking, secure, nice looking tailgate. It has a key and a lock, but anybody can simply reach inside both latches and open the gate when the handle is locked, good by 500.00 Tailgate. I was disappointed with the gate

My tailgate arrived 3 days after ordered. The packaging was intact and there was no damage to tailgate. The latch on the drivers side does not fully engage and I see no way to make an adjustment (no instructions came with merchandise). The tailgate stays locked closed so I guess I can live with it. I also had to take the cables off my old tailgate to use with the new one since no new cables came with the new tailgate.

Seem to be made of quality materials, however the lock mechanisn does not work as the key cannot be removed when it is locked. When I installed it the plastic insert in the passenger side rotated out of position, so now I cannot remove the tailgate. There is no room to move it back with a tool of some sort, so I cannot lift the gate back out. Probably should have spent half the money on another brand.

I was excited to install the new tailgate. It's appearance was what I expected. Installation was a bit more intriguing. The latching mechinisim on the new tailgate did not align with the pins on the body of the truck. Upon close examination I could see the mechinisim on the new tail gate was bolted on with three bolts. The factory had put 4 spacer washers between the latching mechinism and the body of the tailgate. There were not enough spacers to properly align with the locking pin on the truck body. In other words it wouldn't close until I figured out more spacers were needed. Not something I would expect from a manufacturer that is supposed to produce superior products. It appeared that the latching mechinism was installed with a slanted bias because of improper spacers (not enough).

The Husky 5th wheel tailgate is a good product but some refining could make the product excellent. The tailgate top should be little taller to be able to seal the gap between a tonneu cover as a stock tailgate does and a block off for the V in the gate should be offered in order to secure contents in the truck bed. I was disappointed that the gate had about a little over an inch gap between it and my hard folding tonneau cover, if it would have been made as tall as the stock tailgate it would have made a sweet looking job. The lack of an option for a block of the V in the gate makes it vulnerable to have contents in you bed stolen. Most people that run a 5th wheel use a tonneau cover (either soft roll up or hard folding type) to protect their bed's contents. The service from AutoAnything was excellent and packaging of the gate was excellent, tailgate arrived flawless.

The appearance, quality, and fit are excellent. It is a nuisance, however, that the Ford factory bushings on the tailgate latch have to be removed and replaced with rubber sleeves. This will be a hassle every time I want to change between the 5th wheel tailgate and the factory tailgate.
