V Gate with ease

A nice, inexpensive v-gate that makes hooking and unhooking of our 5th wheel easier. Would not recommend it if your intentions are to use to support heavy loads exceeding approx 50 lbs. Also recommend adapting some type of chain or cables to deter theft. Can easily be painted to match your trucks color.

Quality Issues

March 04, 2010
I purchased one of these tailgates for my 2002 Ford Super duty. Straight out of the box, the powder coating process was poor. It had several runs, and bubbles in the coating which will be the first place for rust to start. During the installation I noted that the small strip of nylon meant to reduce the female cup size to keep the lower right side tang pivot end from rattling was missing. Installing without the strip allowed for both up & down and Fore / Aft movement which meant lots of rattles while traveling. I called the manufacturer to report the oversight . It took several minutes trying to explain to the girl what it was that was missing, even after I had given her their own part number. She finally agreed to send me another plastic strip. I was hesitant, but sure enough a couple days later I received the correct item in the mail. Once installed the rattle problem was eliminated. No major disappointment with the unit, just wish for the money spent they would pay more attention to the finish and verifying that all the components have been shipped. I like the unit and would buy another if these quality issues were corrected.
