These tailgates are produced from new tooling with 18-gauge OE quality steel, as original, for strength and durability. These no-worry tailgates offer a sturdy base that will outperform current collision-damage tailgates. They feature a professional EDP (Electro Deposit Primer) coating that offers a smooth surface for your finishes.
Tailgates are GM Officially Licensed Products purchased from an authorized GM Service Parts Operator (GMSPO) Licensee.
