SO, went to the stealership today and asked about this tailgate thing and the lady who worked there says there's no such thing and that I shouldn't believe everything I read on forums -__-....... Thank you useless Toyota of Goldsboro

Wow... Go see a tech. That's the only way you'll get anything. Got a friend who is a Toyota tech back in Arkansas and helps me out.

I went straight to services and the tech working there wouldn't listen to me pretty much. Said she'd worked there 11yrs and never heard about this. Another tech below her asked her to check it out for my sake and she wouldn't

I will go to my dealer and ask my good friend over there that is a writer and see if they can get me the tailgate under warranty mine is all bent to hell from loading my bike.

I think I'll have to take mine in and see if I can get a new tailgate. It was fine before we pulled it off to paint it. I've never set anything heavy on it. Went to go re-install it and the right side won't latch when closed normally. I've got to lean into it as I slam it shut.

New one from Toyota is about 400... Unpainted. Mines bent from the previous owner and I'm out of warranty.
 
I plan on doing this...I bought my truck used. I believe the previous owner was a member on here.

would the dealership have record of tsb's or any other warranty work done on the truck?

I might just open up the panels on the tailgate to see if it was done.
